Interview with AIC Board Member Ambassador Robert Hunter
By Kourosh Ziabari
Former U.S. Ambassador to NATO and AIC Board Member Robert Hunter believes that until everything is agreed, it cannot be said whether there would be a deal; however, he says he is optimistic that the talks will move in such a direction that can end in an understanding. Hunter, however, says that there are some parties in the Middle East who disfavor such a deal between Iran and the West, because it would lead to Iran’s economic and political reemergence as a regional power and an Iran-U.S. rapprochement, which is not pleasant to everybody.
