One on one talks are the order of the day between Iran's newly elected President Hasan Rouhani in the belief that direct outreach from Tehran to Washington in the form of bilateral talks (also between the ruling clerics of Iran and the Revolutionary Guard). Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khameni mentioned that he will not detour any dialogue with the United States.
Special notice is given to Rebecca Lindegren and Mr. Ken Anderson who is a writer and author who specializes in international relations, international development, economics, and technology for their forthright commentaries, with which I can extrapolate and add my intelligence data onto.
Following his presidential elections surprise victory Rouhani showed he has different opinions from former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as well as other sects of the Iranian government on major issues. With 72.7 percent of the people coming out to vote (36.7 million Iranians), he secured 50.7 percent of the vote within the first round, finishing ahead of his opponent Mohammad Bager Qalibaf (mayor of Tehran who received 16.5 percent of public votes).
Mentioning his victory being a result of "victory for wisdom, moderation and maturity... over extremism, he promised greater communication with the U.S. and other Western Powers. He further stated that "the nations who tout democracy and open dialogue should speak to the Iranian people with respect and recognize the rights of the Islamic Republic".
President Rouhani is looking to lift sanctions, and other military/economic constraints that the U.S. and it's allies have put on Iran in exhchange for concessions from Tehran on their nuclear program and other issues; which resulted in economic problems such as unemployment, devalued currency to name a few.
Ayatollah Khameni congragulated Rouhani and mentioned to the general public to help the president-elect and his colleagues in the government; insisting on everyone to vote in the election-even the ones who do not support the country's Islamic political system.
Reacting in a positive light to Rouhani's victory were the Western leaders, with White House spokesman Jay Carney stated how the U.S, would try and find a diplomatic solution addressing the international community's fears of the Iranian nuclear program. France and the UK foreign office are willing to work with Mr. Rouhani to put Iran on a different course for their future by, international concerns about Iran's nuclear program, and the improvment of the political and human rights condition for their people. Disputes between the U.S. and Iran have caused bilateral talks to be repeatedly refused. The conflict with Syria is high on Tehrans and Washington's agendas.
Suggestions on the table by an ALU law scholar would be to 1) with Rouhani being a pragmatic thinker, we may be able to resolve the nuclear issue and combine unemployment, and other economic issues under the umbrella of bilateral talks, 2) Iran being one of the middle east's superpowers, to show their good faith in humanitarian, and other issues strenghten their position within the world community should try and act as intermediary between the U.S., Great Britain, France, Syria, Russia, and Israel (1st tier) to end the chemical attacks, 3) this can be accomplished where sanctions can be lifted, and assets unfrozen as a tradeoff, 4) Washington should help Mr. Rouhani to ease Tehran's entrenched power structure, by creating enough political tension to convince Iran's ruling theocracy to think otherwise, 5) Iran's insistence on their nuclear policy should have the United States to rethink their policy and look into ways to include them into the United Nations Nuclear Proliferation Network, and 6) work very hard to prevent a missile strike in Syria by using it's influence not only ensuring very good news for the Iranian people but helping to ease the international and regional tensions within that region of the world.
