German expert highlights 'great chance' for final Iran nuclear deal

Berlin, Jan 13, IRNA -- The interim deal between Iran and six world powers could pave the way for a lasting solution of the Iran nuclear dispute, a leading German Iran expert said here Monday.

Talking to German Press-Agency dpa, Walter Posch of the Berlin-based German Institute for International Politics and Security (SWP) stressed there was a 'great chance' for a permanent solution.

He said although there were still complicated problems to deal with in the case, there had been two important points of progress, notably the fact that all sides have avoided polemics and de-politicized the Iran nuclear dossier.

The nuclear file has become a technical process and merely an expert problem, added Posch.

Pointing out that the implementation of the interim agreement was of 'great significance', the Iran analyst said it showed diplomacy was indeed working.

Asked about Israeli criticism that western powers were 'naive' in dealing with Iran's nuclear program, Posch responded that this critic was 'absolutely unjustified', saying the West was 'never naive towards Iran but pragmatic'.
