An opinion poll conducted by the Tehran website www.tabnak.com shows that the majority of Iranian people are in favor of accepting the “incentive package” offered by the “Iran Six”. The package, included civilian nuclear cooperation as well as wider trade in aircraft, energy, high technology and agriculture. ……However, the drift of public opinion may turn sharply against any compromise should the threats and coercive actions, seen in the implementation of new EU sanctions targeting some key Iranian officials, the Melli Bank, and more Iranian companies, continue. Ali Larijani, the speaker of the parliament (Majlis) has warned against the “contradictory behavior” of the “Iran Six” as undermining the negotiation process. Similarly, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini has warned that the “politics of sticks and carrots has no effect with respect to Iran’s legal rights”.
