Iran's Foreign Policy: From Khatami to Ahmadinejad

Anoushiravan Ehteshami, Mahjoob Zweiri
Ithaca Press, 2008 - 149 Seiten
This timely collection of papers by leading academics and prominent government officials sheds new light on the foreign policy of Iran under President Khatami and on the period of President Ahmadinejad. Iran's foreign policy during this period was based on four fundamental principles: the rejection of all forms of foreign domination; the preservation of the independence of the country and its territorial integrity; the defense of the rights of all Muslims; and the maintenance of mutually peaceful relations with all non-belligerent states. Iran's Foreign Policy examines the implications of these principles, and provides analysis of Iran's diplomacy with regard to ongoing developments such the war on terror, the continuing conflict in Iraq, American-Iranian relations, British-Iranian relations, European-Iranian relations, and Arab-Iranian relations. Table of contents include: Iran's Foreign Policy: Independence, Freedom and the Islamic Republic --- The US and Iran in Iraq: Risks and Opportunities --- Iran: Caught Between EU and US Rivalries --- Iran-EU Relations: Strategic Partnership? --- Iran-UK Relations since the Revolution: Opening Doors --- Foreign Policy Theories: Implications for Iran's Foreign Policy Analysis --- Diplomatic Relations between Iran and the UK in the Early Reform Period, 1997-2000 --- Arab-Iranian Relations: New Realities?
