The current policies benefit a tiny clique inside Iran, but not the majority of Iranian people.
Not really. Iranians benefit massively from the fact that their country is one of the most if not the single most independent in the world.
Even then, not being able to trade with the west will still prevent Iran from being able to compete economically with countries like Saudi Arabia or Turkey on a level playing field.
Iran can and is competing with the mentioned countries economically.
As long as the current policies remain in place, Iran cannot and will not live up its full potential economically or otherwise. Look at China for example, they are America's largest rival, yet they're also their largest trading partner.
China is not located in the zionist regime's vicinity. It is therefore not subject to the direct consequences of Tel Aviv's structural intolerance for strong regional neighbors, consequences which include America's staunch refusal to settle for anything short of complete abandonment of sovereignty and territorial integrity by Iran as a precondition for any semblance of diplomatic normalization.
The Chinese are intelligent enough to use revenue generated from trading with the US to build up their own military & infrastructure. The Saudis, Emiratis, Turks all support militant groups in the region, but they do so in a way that isn't detrimental to their economy.
Saudi, Emirati and Turkish regional proxies are not challenging NATO or zionist interests. On the contrary, they've been acting as auxiliaries to Washington's and Tel Aviv's interventions in the region.
Iranian allies on the other hand are not in the business of serving the interests of imperial overlords. Which is why the USA regime is asking Iran to dismantle or disarm her allies.
So no, it will not be possible to restore bilateral ties with Washington all the while of maintaining a set of non-governmental allies acting in full independence of the zio-American empire.
The leadership in Iran seem to be more concerned about Palestine & the way women dress, than they are about the welfare/prosperity of the average Iranian.
Wrong equivalence. The Palestinian dossier pertains to the realm of foreign policy, the dress code to the realm of social-cultural affairs and prosperity of the average Iranian to social-economic matters. These are separate topics and there is no contradiction nor mutual exclusivity between the Iranian Leadership's respective positions on each of these.
I've said it before & I'll say it again, the current economic situation in Iran is not sustainable. Currently 1 US Dollar is equal to 555,000 Rial. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like the people in power are in any kind of hurry to fix anything anytime soon.
Iran has some pressing economic issues to fix, but so have numerous countries including Turkey and wealthy capitalist countries of the north as well.
