Once implementation of the nuclear agreement proceeds to the point that sanctions are lifted, Europe is without doubt likely to want to benefit from opportunity in Iran, James Dorsey, senior fellow at Nanyang Technological University’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies told Trend on July 15.
He believes that some European countries are likely to benefit more than others. “France, for example, may be seen in Tehran as having adopted a tougher line in the nuclear talks as part of its effort to ingratiate itself in the Gulf,” he said.
Iran however will certainly want to regain its status as one of Europe’s foremost energy suppliers, something that would suit Europe given strained relations with and sanctions against Russia because of the crisis in Ukraine, Dorsey said.
