President Barak Obama in his press conference tonight made two important observations with policy implications on Iran: Iran is expected to send signals in the coming weeks on her intention to normalize relations with US, and Iran should stop pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Asking Iran to send the right signals in the coming weeks is in line with Obama’s campaign promises that he would prefer a civilized dialogue between the two countries to resolve the outstanding issues. Obama’s reference to Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons was noteworthy. He must have seen reports during these past weeks convincing him that Iran was actually planning to build the bomb.
Considering these two points by President Obama, it seems that Iran is expected in the coming weeks to send strong signals to the US on its nuclear intentions and program.
