Charm not harm? Hamidreza Azizi, assistant professor of regional studies at Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran

Iranian diplomacy has never been particularly soft-spoken or insipid; condemnations of ‘the Great Satan’ and thinly veiled threats have long been part of its vernacular. But with Trump in office, Tehran has changed its tack, embarking on a global charm offensive. Has it been helpful in mitigating the effects of the maximum pressure policy pursued by the Americans? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Hamidreza Azizi, assistant professor of regional studies at Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran. Azizi is an expert at the 16th Annual Meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club.
