Hossein Amirabdollahian has replaced Javad Zarif as Iran’s foreign minister who negotiated the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) better known as the Iran nuclear deal.
While Zarif was a character who knew how to speak to the western world, the latter considers Amirabdollahian a radical figure with close ties to the late general Qassem Soleimani.
As Amirabdollahian became the new foreign minister, western and regional governments have to deal with him. Therefore, we ask: what shall we expect from him and what does it mean for Damascus who enjoys a strategic alliance with Tehran? Kevork Almassian discussed these questions with Dr. Karim Sharara, an expert on Iranian affairs.
