Since Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said now is not the right time for another phone call with President Obama, let’s discuss when might be the best time. A report by Rachel Huggins from The Hill said Rouhani doesn’t have more conversations on his agenda.
The right time for talking with Iranian representatives would include the following:
- Theocracy has been removed from governmental power
- Pluralistic democracy arrives in Iran
- The president of Iran and its government are chosen by the people in fair elections
In fact, this is a good time for Iran to consider the entire slate of the “Bill of Rights for Sustainability” since that is the ultimate direction for the free world shared foreign policy.
Human pursuit in the world is driven toward freedom, liberty, justice, and equality that is driven by pluralistic democracy. The outcome must be the production of sustainable economies that enable self-determination and self-sustainment. To achieve this in our very small world requires collaboration and consensus.
Religious ideology-driven governance is an impediment that must be removed. Therefore, conversations with Iran until the barriers are removed must be guarded as there is no legitimate voice for Iranians in the present structure.
The “Bill of Rights for Sustainability” published by Dr. John Ikerd in a book titled Sustainable Capitalism, A Matter of Common Sense, © 2013 Kumarian Press is a good place to begin the future discussions.

“Iranian president: Not right time for Obama call
By Rachel Huggins – 09/26/14 11:23 PM EDT
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Friday said that time isn’t right for another phone conversation or a meeting with President Obama.
Asked about a repeat conversation with the president before heading home after this year’s United Nations meeting, Rouhani said: “Not a meeting nor a telephone call had been included in the agenda nor been planned for, … nor intended to be a part of our visit this year to the U.N. General Assembly,” the Associated Press reported.
Rouhani said “sensitivity still exists between the two countries,” which have been estranged since the 1979 Iranian revolution and siege of the American embassy.
Rouhani and Obama spoke by telephone for 15 minutes during last year’s U.N. gathering as the Iranian leader headed to the airport after his first appearance at the U.N. General Assembly’s annual meeting of world leaders.”
