Friday, 20 September 2013

In a meeting with IRGC commander, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei discussed the need for correct and logical steps in foreign and domestic policy, and emphasized his consent with what he referred to as “heroic flexibility” under proper conditions with the proper understanding of the goal and nature of the other side. In a conversation with Fars News Agency,Middle East analyst Amir Moussavi believed that this heroic flexibility would be offered within the context of three axes, honor, insight and interests and based on these axes, Iranian representatives can enter political maneuvering during negotiations with the foreigners. According to Moussavi, heroic flexibility sends the message that Iran’s diplomacy does not include impasse. Moussavi claims that this message was presented in light of regional conditions and repeated US requests. He discussed President Hassan Rouhani’s upcoming visit to the UN General Assembly in New York, and clarified: the expectation is that important talks will be held in New York, and a strategic agreement between Iran and the 5+1 will be achieved. In addition, the US appears to be interested in making a positive move., and through his statements, the Supreme Leader has essentially provided political and diplomatic support to the president so that the president can make a calculated move with regards to relations with the US. he further claims that this is a major development in the diplomatic arena that will be related on the one hand to Iran’s ties with the 5+1 and, on the other hand,Iran’s ties with the US. The very fact that these statements were made during a meeting with senior IRGC commanders reflect a very important message.
