Likely new Iranian president Raisi embraces possible nuke deal
A mark of his campaign has been Iranian self-resilience and the “resistance economy” having the ability to overcome American sanctions.

Iran presidential front-runner and Judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi has embraced the possibility of returning to the 2015 nuclear deal as long as Iran’s interests are met, Iranian media reported earlier this week. Raisi made the statement in a series of presidential debates that have been taking place since last week in the lead up to the June 18 presidential election. Since Raisi, from the hard-liner camp, is viewed as Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s hand picked candidate for president, and possible eventual pick to succeed himself, his positive statement toward the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement – turned heads. In general, Raisi has slammed current President Hassan Rouhani and his pragmatist camp as being too compromising with the US and the West. A mark of his campaign has been Iranian self-resilience and the “resistance economy” having the ability to overcome American sanctions by producing more critical items for everyday life domestically.
