Zarif Deserves Nobel Peace Prize

By: Abdolreza Ghofrani 

By and large, after two years of draconian nuclear talks, amid optimism, cynicism, anxieties, hurdles and destructive propaganda, the nuclear deal was struck between Islamic Republic of Iran and P5+1 in Austrian capital Vienna last week.

It, initially, sounds that the striking the deal is the final line of the race. Undoubtedly, this has been a big deal and historical episode and a great success that the future generations will thoroughly and meticulously judge.

The great challenges are, however, still to come. It is scheduled that this agreement in the form of a proposed resolution to be tabled, being discussed by all the members of the Security Council of the United Nations, a resolution that will be certainly adopted by this council.

The adoption of this resolution, having international dimension, is actually the significant importance the world body attaches to the global peace and security. But given being the only organ of the United Nations whose resolutions have the power of executive guarantee, undoubtedly all member states of SC of this world body ,particularly signatory parties of the said agreement, cannot but committed to live up to this resolution.

Certainly, this would-be adopted resolution by any country is unavoidable, and the violation of this international legal instrument by any country, being either small or large and particularly those signed the nuclear agreement, is the blunt violation of international laws and regulations and the lack of interest to the international peace and security.

However, we have not to lose the sight of the fact that we are at the beginning of the road. The operation of this agreement in the form of a UN resolution is pretty significant and quite challenging. As a matter of fact this is a resolution that requires the efforts by the whole world because the global peace and security of is at stake.

Fortunately, many that used to call this deal a “bad agreement”, and did think of it as a peril to global peace and security!! now have convinced that they have been making a great mistake .However there are still those desperately dragging their feet and insisting on their obsolete and old viewpoints .Delightfully they are in sheer minority .

All those on the two sides opposing to the agreement, need have no doubt, whatsoever, that this agreement, or if you will would- be UN resolution, will make its way peacefully but at the high speed. Now the global public opinion have found out that this agreement, or would–be UN resolution is not only quite good and useful but pretty significant and unavoidable. So, this calls for inclusive international efforts that entail welfare, peace and security for the generations of the whole world for which they will be grateful.

In this between, however, the role of those persons and their devoted painstaking efforts leading to this international agreement (since through adopting this by UNSC, it will gain an international dimension, no longer being bilateral or trilateral deal) be ignored. These persons, that are the negotiating teams, are those with deep faith in international peace and security, sparing no efforts to do their best to achieve their courageous and inspiring goals. As a matter of fact their marvelous job evokes the attempts made by great personalities for global peace and security ever since the establishment of Nobel Foundation in ninety hundred in Norway. If those great and peace-loving persons could have made the world a better place to live, these people, now , in this tumultuous international conditions have done great to do the same and this should be appreciated.

Now it is for Nobel Foundation to decide and appreciate the precious attempts of these peace making and peace loving persons, who have not spared any effort to achieve the objectives they have had great conviction. There is no doubt that Iranian Foreign Minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif is one of these excellent figures. This is a fact that nobody has any doubt.

Certainly Nobel Foundation has its own rules and measures to decide the laureates, including peace prize for next year, however Mr. Zarif certainly is a brilliant one.
