IS terror necessitates atomic agreement with Iran

In Vienna the nuclear talks with Iran have entered a crucial phase. An agreement between Iran and the 5+1 group is expected to be in place by Wednesday. The changing situation in global politics is making a deal possible, the liberal business paper Il Sole 24 Ore explains: "In the Arab Levant, states like Syria, Iraq and Yemen are breaking up, while in North Africa the IS-inspired attacks are multiplying. In this dramatic moment the Shiite Iran and its allies, from Hizbollah to Bashar al-Assad to the government in Baghdad and the Kurds, are forming the strongest front against the Sunni jihadists. An agreement could be the starting point for the West to resolve the complex situation in the Middle East. … As far as the Europeans - shaken by the Greek crisis - are concerned, in Vienna the opinion has prevailed that Iran could now be an opportunity rather than a threat, both in political and in business terms."
