Former State Department official

"The Face of the Islamic Republic"

"Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has not left Iran for more than 30 years since was the president in 1
"Zarif is a career diplomat who has lived in the United States and has been in the UN for many years, known as the face of the Islamic Republic on the international stage."
Tensions in the region grew in recent weeks after a series of attacks The United States and its regional allies – Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – have accused Iran of assaults – the accusation that Tehran denied as "unfounded."

"Politics of Change of the Regime"
the best diplomats – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton – in the Middle East support for Iran
Pompeo said he hopes that more than 20 countries, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, will work together to build maritime security in the Persian Gulf, which is the source of n but a large supply of oil in the world. 196 59013] But Jarrett Blanc of the Carnegie International Peace Foundation said that while the new sanctions would be largely symbolic, the main message could escalate the situation even further.
"Sanctions against the top leader and his office will almost certainly be read in Iran as a confirmation that this administration is conducting a policy of regime change," said Blanc who is a senior State Department official with President Barack Obama, who ruled the implementation of the Iranian nuclear agreement in 2015.
Last year, Trump pulled the United States out of the agreement between Iran and the world powers that restricted Tehran's nuclear program in return for easing sanctions. Since then, relations in the region have deteriorated considerably.
Even if President Trump denies it, and even other officials do not use that phrase, what is the direction of regime leaders other than the change of regime? Blanc said the message this administration sends is "more likely to lead to escalation than de-escalation."
"President Trump says, and I am inclined to believe that he is not seeking war in the Middle East, but he does not follow the details of the situation and has hired not diplomats and firebrands and allowed them to lead a very, very aggressive policy . "
