Interview with Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif

 In an exclusive Time magazine interview,  the  Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif talks about Iranian hardliners who  “believe the West and particularly the United States are not sincere, are not interested about reaching an agreement.”  In the United States,   hawkish senators like Marco Rubio (R-FL),  express the same skepticism.  It seems that hardliners in Tehran and Washington are mirror image of each other. However,  the hardliners in Washington know that they can sabotage the interim nuclear deal with Iran if they enact more sanctions.  In contrast,  as long as the Iranian Supreme Leader supports the agreement,  it is doubtful if hardliners can do anything except their vocal opposition to the deal.
