The View from Tehran and RussiaIssue: Mar-Apr 2007
Iran is always ready for dialogue. We have to see whether tactics followed by one or another side of this dialogue in fact help the dialogue or creates obstacles. But I can tell you that from the beginning of the negotiations between Iran and Europe, the Security Council was used as a threat, so the dialogue could only have one outcome.
If one party in a discussion is always confident that it can resort to an extremist instrument with the dialogue, then the propensity to do whatever is possible and useful in order to achieve a mutually acceptable solution becomes more distant.
