Chairman of the Ansar Hezbollah Coordinating Council said "Nuclear diplomacy needs support. Even if the government is empty-handed it must not say it is. I said this to Mr. Araqchi as well. I told him ‘In the next talks you are going to be empty-handed, because the president talked about the treasury being empty when he was speaking in Tehran University, and so he left you empty-handed.’”
Hossein Allahkaram who was speaking in the America, Conflict or Cooperation conference in Isfahan University said "Unfortunately the recent talks were done hastily. And it is still going on. As a political activist I believe that the government is acting over-hastily.”
"The Rouhani administration must pay attention to the fact that it has risen to power with a small margin and it cannot forget about the other votes. Telephone diplomacy will never bear fruit and when it does, we see again that the US has the military option still on the table and says that Iran’s new approach is due to the heavy sanctions,” he stated.
Asked if he does not think that the change of behavior is necessary for Iran to preserve its interests, he said "Right now the arrogance is America. It used to be Britain once. We follow Mr. Rouhani and his government, provided that he proves to us via sound judgment that the US is not the international arrogance, and then he may change position.”
Allahkaram added "The current measures by the Obama administration are to make America believe that it has been able to stall Iran by negotiations, so that Clinton will rise to power the next round. Our country and government must make the best of the situation.”
