In a separate meeting with officials from the German foreign ministry, Bahrami discussed Iran’s recent attempt to buy more time through negotiations regarding the regimes nuclear program. Bahrami stressed that the election of Rohani has not changed the regimes strategic goals and hegemonic ambitions.
