Rafsanjani’s Statements on Syria and its Connection to the New Approaches of Iran’s Foreign Policy

These statements coincided with radical transformations in the ruling institutions in Iran; a large number of appointments were made in different sensitive positions. Statements by the new president, Hasan Rouhani, are in line with this new approach. He seemed as if he is courting the West and the US in more than one position. Khamenei also raised a new slogan for the next stage entitled “heroic flexibility” through which he tried to help Rouhani’s government to give concessions on the nuclear issue.
