In the coming days and weeks, we will see that the leverage of the western side will lose influence and Iran’s pressure on the western side will become heavier. If the western side practices real-politics, it will find that the agreement today is better than the one of tomorrow. Because at least Joe Biden, the President of the United States, desperately needs an achievement to deliver in the upcoming elections in America.”
