The Iran nuclear deal amid regional tensions

Only ten days are left until the Iran Presidential elections, and this is no event in which betting against the odds will make gamblers rich, even in the highly devalued local currency. The winner will be Ebrahim Raisi, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s favorite candidate, for whom the race was cleared from competition. Because of the waiting for the transition from Hassan Rouhani to Raisi, it seems that the Vienna negotiations on a mutual return to the 2015 nuclear deal were put on hold, so that the credit for sanctions relief will not be given to the moderates in Tehran, led by Rouhani. Meanwhile, the hard-liners reporting to Khomeini, whose foreign activity arm is the Revolutionary Guards Quds Force, continue their subversive regional policy from Iraq and Yemen to Syria and Lebanon, where Israel keeps trying to block their designs against it.
