Gli obiettivi dell’Iran nel 2014

TEHERAN – Durante la mia campagna elettorale per diventare presidente dell’Iran ho promesso di bilanciare il realismo e il conseguimento degli ideali della Repubblica islamica – e ho ottenuto il supporto degli elettori iraniani con un ampio margine. In virtù del mandato popolare che ho ricevuto, intendo portare avanti il mio impegno a favore della moderazione e del buonsenso, che ora sta guidando tutte le politiche del mio governo. Questo impegno ha portato direttamente all’accordo internazionale provvisorio raggiunto a novembre a Ginevra sul programma nucleare dell’Iran. E continuerà a guidare le nostre decisioni nel 2014.

In effetti, in termini di politica estera, il mio governo sta abbandonando gli approcci estremi. Cerchiamo relazioni diplomatiche efficaci e costruttive e puntiamo a instaurare una fiducia reciproca con i paesi vicini e con altri soggetti regionali e internazionali, così consentendo di orientare la nostra politica estera verso lo sviluppo economico in patria. A tal scopo lavoreremo duramente per eliminare le tensioni nelle nostre relazioni estere e rafforzare i nostri legami con partner nuovi e tradizionali. Questo approccio richiede ovviamente consenso a livello nazionale e trasparenza degli obiettivi – due processi attualmente in corso.

Se da un lato eviteremo confronti e antagonismo, dall’altro perseguiremo attivamente i nostri interessi più ampi. Ma, considerato il mondo sempre più interconnesso e interdipendente, le sfide possono essere affrontare solo con l’interazione e con una cooperazione attiva tra stati. Nessun paese – incluse le grandi potenze – può affrontare da solo le sfide che incontra.

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
