Tuesday on Lubbock’s First News, Ambassador Tibor Nagy, Jr., Vice Provost for International Affairs at Texas Tech University, discussed the recent interim negotiations made with Iran in nuclear talks.

Regarding the agreement made, Nagy suggested, “the world is ready for a totally new order in the Middle East. This may one of those things that really sets it off.” He believes that Iran is using nuclear weapons, not necessarily for destruction, but as a tactic to regain power in that part of the country. He continued, “I’m thinking Iran’s objective in this whole thing has not been nuclear weapons, per se, but the right to have nuclear enrichment, just like a lot of other countries have.”

He observed that although Iran has a new regime leader in power, “they are absolutely not trustworthy… but now there are reasons for them to change their behavior.” He suggested their reasons at this point are a result of the economic downturn and a recognition that it is now in the interest of the regime to change their behavior. The trust placed in this by the current agreement has led Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to call the agreement a negative decision, due to the increased threat this places on Israel’s security.
