The Iranian nuclear file is one of the largest international security concerns. In this sense, coercive diplomacy was a solution that some of the states of the Middle East region, including Israel and Saudi Arabia, have been using at the expense of military interventions. However, the Geneva agreement and the agreement signed between Tehran and the IAEA earlier this year are important steps for reconciliation between Iran and the West. The economic embargo eroded Iran’s power, affecting all segments of society, thus leading to violent street protests in 2009, when Ahmadinejad won his second term as president. This was the most important sign proving that coercive diplomacy really worked and all expectations were confirmed in 2013 when a moderate president, and not a follower of the clergymen, took the office.
