Brand valuation in mergers and acquisitions

True Religion Still Worth A Look  February 13, 2013 – 01:07 pm

Diplomatic sources in Tehran say that despite all the protestations, Iran's intentions remain unclear. There are two widely held and opposing views.
The first argues that Iran is cynically stringing out the negotiations to extract more economic concessions from the US and the EU that it desperately needs to support its sick economy. At the right point it will compromise.
The second is that Tehran is secretly working on a weapons acquisition program but won't declare its intentions until it has assembled the necessary technology and know-how. According to this theory, Iran would rely on the backing of Russia and China to head off any retaliatory action by the EU and US.
