Iran: the other point of view

Reza Sajjadi – Iranian Ambassador to Russia
To bomb or not to bomb – that is the question, dominating the Middle East lately. The standoff with Iran concerning its nuclear program is getting tougher. Israel prepares to attack it in a month or two and urges Washington to do the same. The Western countries are not that hostile yet, but keep imposing more economic sanctions on Tehran.
A new round of talks on the Iranian issue is due in April, and, as said by the US state secretary Hillary Clinton, it’s the last chance for Tehran to avoid a war…
The media keeps discussing the issue, but mostly highlighting the Western point of view. Now – what’s the Iranian position? Is Tehran ready for war?
We’re asking Iranian Ambassador to the Russian Federation, Reza Sajjadi.
