New hope for Syria

The nuclear deal with Iran gives the centre-left daily Politiken fresh hope even for war-torn Syria: "This is an achievement that doesn't just give us hope that a military confrontation over Iran's nuclear ambitions can be avoided. The agreement also gives us hope that the US, Russia and Iran can start a dialogue on how to stop the catastrophe in Syria and combat the IS. It can help to unravel the tight diplomatic knots in the Middle East and release great economic potential - which would also benefit the Arab states and Israel. A mutual understanding has been achieved from which both sides can profit. This isn't guaranteed, and the mistrust between Iran and its neighbours is not merely incidental. It's hard to end an established conflict and it takes time to build up fresh trust between old enemies."
