"Negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program cannot succeed without first gaining a comprehensive reading of the region’s political landscape," former Jordanian Minister of Media Affairs says.

In an article published in Arabic language daily Asharq Al Awsat, Samih Maaytah said: "The nuclear issue is not independent of the already existing understandings between major powers and the countries of the region, and it cannot be made independent."

 "This is why I do not foresee any future agreement between the major powers and Iran regarding its nuclear program—not because the agreement would be difficult to reach, but because Tehran wants the project to act as a platform from which it can advance its interests in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, the Gulf, and elsewhere in the region."

According to the Jordanian politician, with its nuclear program the Iranian regime "wants to control certain levers of power that will allow it to realize its expansionist ambitions. "

"Coming to an agreement on the nuclear program is not, in and of itself, a goal for Iran. Resolving the matter through a definitive agreement does not advance Iran’s expansionist platform. This is because the nuclear program must remain a tool Iran can use to exert pressure and further its wider interests."
