Iran’s Foreign Policy Under Raisi and Failure to Garner International Support



By Ikechukwu Emeka Onyia

The recent tragic death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in an airplane crash has left the future of Iran’s foreign policy hanging in the balance.

The inability of Iran to rally any sovereign state to its defense during direct confrontations with Israel highlights the challenges facing Iranian foreign policy. Unlike Israel, which has enjoyed the support of a US-led alliance for its defense, Iran’s status quo has failed to trigger military solidarity among multiple sovereign states.

The lack of international support for Iran in its conflicts with Israel raises questions about the effectiveness of its foreign policy approach. Despite its efforts, Iran has been unable to secure backing from other nations, leaving it at a disadvantage in the face of its posture as a Middle-East regional power and confrontation with the state of Israel.

While Iran has been successful in supporting non-state actors and proxy groups such as Houthi rebels of Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas and others as part of its strategic power struggle in the region, its inability to garner the support of sovereign states in times of crisis is a significant setback.

This disparity becomes evident when comparing Iran’s situation to that of Israel, which has maintained a strong alliance with the United States and other nations as exemplified during the recent Iran/Israel direct confrontation.

The absence of a robust international coalition supporting Iran raises concerns about the effectiveness of its foreign policy strategies.

It highlights the need for Iran to reassess its approach and seek avenues for building stronger diplomatic and military alliances with sovereign states.

As Iran navigates the challenges of its foreign policy landscape, it must address the limitations that have hindered its ability to garner international solidarity.

The lack of support from sovereign states during confrontations with Israel underscores the importance of building alliances and fostering relationships with other nations.

In the face of these challenges, the Iranian government must evaluate its foreign policy status quo and work towards a more comprehensive approach that can garner the support of multiple sovereign states. Only through such efforts can Iran hope to strengthen its position and effectively address regional conflicts.

As the new leadership takes the helm in Iran, it will be crucial for them to reassess and adapt their foreign policy strategies to overcome these challenges and build stronger international alliances.

Is Iran going to join new friends, align with US led coalition or stick with its correct policy?

The future of Iran’s foreign policy hangs in the balance, and it is imperative for the nation to find ways to overcome the current obstacles it faces.
