    What Does Russia Really Want in Iran?
    Petr Topychkanov December 19, 2014

    Russia, Iran, and the Nuclear Negotiations in Vienna
    Nikolay Kozhanov November 27, 2014

    Alexei Arbatov May 29, 2014

    What to Expect of the Syrian Presidential Elections?
    Alexey Malashenko May 22, 2014

    The June 3 Syrian vote is unlikely to radically change or improve the situation in the country. Rather, Bashar al-Assad’s re-election may only worsen it.

    Iran’s Unrealistic Endgame in Syria
    Aron Lund April 11, 2014

    Until Iran and all the other governments currently fanning the flames of war in Syria have accepted that no peace plan can work without a critical mass of armed actors on both sides, Syria’s slow collapse into Somalia-style anarchy will continue.

    George Perkovich, Karim Sadjadpour, Daryl Kimball, Elizabeth Rosenberg, Kelsey Davenport December 3, 2014 Washington, DC

    Negotiators from the P5+1 and Iran have agreed to extend the talks on Iran’s nuclear program to June 2015.

Still, all parties to the talks have stressed the need to reach a comprehensive agreement.
