Iran's Foreign Policy: From Khatami to Ahmadinejad
Anoushiravan Ehteshami, Mahjoob Zweiri
Sussex Academic Press, 2012 - History - 165 pages
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 into 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. Now available in paperback, Iran's Foreign Policy examines the implications of these principles, and provides an analysis of Iran's diplomacy with regard to ongoing developments, such as the war on terror, the continuing conflict in Iraq, American-Iranian relations, British-Iranian relations, European-Iranian relations, and Arab-Iranian relations.
