House learns from past successes There were high expectations after President Obama and Irans presidentHassan Rouhanitalked on the phone in late September Those hoping for a diplomatic resolution to the nuclear standoff were excited that a breakthrough was imminent; meanwhilesome American allieslike Israel and Saudi Arabiaexpressed deep scepticism over a potential American rapprochement with Iran No breakthrough was achieved when American and Iranian officials met for negotiations last monthbut few observers expected one Later this weekanother round of talks is scheduled to begin in Geneva The window for achieving a diplomatic solution to the nuclear crisis is not open-ended Both Obama and Rouhani face domestic pressures from sceptical members of Congress in Washington and anti-American hard-liners in Tehran Neverthelessdespite three decades of frosty relations and although most Americans may be unaware of ittalks with Iran have succeeded in the past and they can succeed again Immediately after 9/11while serving in the State DepartmentI sat down with Iranian diplomats to discuss next steps in Afghanistan Back thenwe had a common enemythe Taliban and its al-Qaeda associatesand both governments thought it was worth exploring whether we could cooperate The Iranians were constructivepragmatic and focused at one point they even produced an extremely valuable map showing the Talibans order of battle just before American military action began They were also strong proponents of taking action in Afghanistan We met through the remaining months of 2001 in different locationsand Iranian-American agreement at the Bonn Conference on Afghanistan was central to establishing the Afghan Interim Authorityheaded by Hamid Karzainow the president of Afghanistan I continued to hold talks with the Iranians in Kabul when I was sent to reopen the US Embassy there We forged agreements on various security issues and coordinated approaches to reconstruction And thensuddenlyit all came to an end when President George W Bush gave his famous Axis of Evil speech in early 2002 The Iranian leadership concluded that in spite of their cooperation with the American war effortthe US remained implacably hostile to the Islamic Republic Real cooperation effectively ceased after the speech and the costs were immediate At the timewe were in the process of negotiating the transfer of the notorious Afghan warlordGulbuddin Hekmatyarfrom Iranian house arrest to Afghan custody and ultimately to American control Insteadthe Iranians facilitated his covert entry into Afghanistan where he remains at largelaunching attacks on coalition and Afghan targets The Afghan experience demonstrates that diplomatic progress between the US and Iran is possible It is certainly not guaranteedbut a solid diplomatic solution is always better than the alternatives The government of the Islamic Republic is clearly an adversarybut it is also a rational actor Andlike all governmentsit is capable of being pragmatic and flexible when it is in its interest to do so There is a chance that the Obama administration can replicate past successes if it applies four lessons from the 2001 talks FirstAmerican negotiators must understand that serious progress is likely to come only in direct talks between the US and Iran The involvement of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany should continuebut the heavy lifting will have to be done by the two central actors Secondthe substance of the talks must be closely held Revealing the details too soon will give ammunition to those who oppose the talks and limit the flexibility of the negotiators ThirdAmerica should be ready to introduce other issues beyond the nuclear file Progress in one area can build confidence and facilitate progress in others I mentioned this in a discussion with Iranian leaders in New York last month and they seemed receptivementioning Afghanistan and Syria as possibilities Finallythe US must make clear that we do not seek to overthrow the Iranian regime Iranian paranoia on this issue is virtually limitlessand understandably so In 1953the American and British intelligence services ousted a democratically elected Iranian prime ministeran episode that very few Americans remember and no Iranian will ever forget The outlines of a deal are already clear Iran wants sanctions lifted and an end to its isolation while the international community wants clearcontinuous and unambiguous verification that Irans nuclear energy programme will never be weaponised The Iranian leaders I met in New York argued that a nuclear weapon would actually degrade Irans security because it would spark a destabilising cascade of proliferation among its Arab neighbors They insisted that Iran wants security and stability in the regionnot a nuclear arms race That is encouraging talkbut the Iranians will have to move first There can be no question of easing American sanctions until Iran has demonstrated its seriousness in confining any nuclear program to peaceful purposes The writera former US ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraqis dean of the Bush School
