Diplomat Ireland is launching a series of in-depth interviews with members of the Diplomatic Corps in Ireland and beyond. Our first interviewee is His Excellency, Dr. Masoud Eslami, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Ireland.
Beginning Tuesday, 27 October 2020, Diplomat.ie will be publishing an un-precedented, 3-Part series of in-depth interviews with the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Ireland – His Excellency Dr. Massoud Eslami.
In a rare, wide-ranging interview, Diplomatic Editor Miceál O’Hurley speaks with Ambassador Eslami on the hot topics of the day. From the easing of sanctions by the UN to the unilateral re-imposition of sanctions by the US, the severe humanitarian crisis in Iran exacerbated by years of sanctions, Trump’s order to assassinate General Qasem Soleimani in an extra-judicial killing on a third-nation’s soil, regional shifts in Middle Eastern alignment, the downing of a Ukrainian airliner earlier this year and Iran’s attempts to collect the $1.1 billion judgment against Israel by a Swiss Court are all discussed in-depth.
Also covered are the upcoming US elections, accusations of election interference, normalising relations with European partners to the JCPOA, the prospects for a thaw in US-Iran relations on the heels of the US losing a crushing vote in the United Nations concerning the Nuclear Arms Deal and Iran-Irish relations and more.
