What Iran wanted was official recognition; they wanted the West to state that Tehran is important, that Tehran is now their partner, and that there can’t be a world without Iran.
And, above all, that Tehran now fights terrorism shoulder to shoulder with the West and that it is no longer on the axis of evil.
