The latest talks between Iran and the six world major powers have stopped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu™s campaign for war against Iran, a political analyst says.
œThe developments in the Geneva conference are extremely promising and appear to pull the rug out from under Netanyahu™s campaign to bring about a war against Iran,” Editor of Veterans Today James Fetzer told Press TV on Thursday.
He made the remarks one day after Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain – plus Germany wrapped up two days of talks and agreed to meet again in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 7-8.
The analyst also praised Iranian President Hassan Rouhani™s diplomatic overtures.
œIt™s really quite fascinating how President Rouhani has taken the initiative in making diplomatic overtures for the Western nations,” Fetzer said.
œIt™s actually politically completely brilliant and I believe that there are very strong signs here that this is going to culminate in a peaceful diplomatic resolution that will leave Israel over more isolated in terms of its political position with regard to the Middle East,” he added.
The retired professor also noted that the negotiations caused Israel œto lose much of its political influence upon the United States.”
Fetzer also congratulated US President Barack Obama for his foreign policy moves.
œFor the time being at least I congratulate Barack Obama on his stood foreign policy moves which appear to be on the verge of diffusing a major source of contention in the Middle East and to make an actual bon fire contribution to the reduction of tensions in the promotion for the world peace,” he said.
Following the Geneva conference, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton hailed the negotiations as the œmost detailed” and most œsubstantive” ones ever held between the two sides.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also expressed hope that the talks will herald a œnew phase” in relations between the two sides.
Zarif said this œwill hopefully be the beginning of a new phase in our relations towards closing an unnecessary crisis and opening new horizons,” in reference to the title of Iran’s proposed package.
