Among the principal findings of the simulation: Iran does not intend to forfeit the nuclear weapons in its possession, but will attempt to use them to reach an agreement with the major powers to improve its strategic standing; the US administration exerted pressure on Israel not to wage a military strike against Iran, with an implied threat that Israeli military action would harm US-Israel relations; in response to the new situation, Russia proposed to establish a Russo-American defense alliance that would ensure the security of the Middle East state members; Israel's military option stands to be a significant lever, if not vis-à-vis Iran, then for some of the main players; and Iran’s crossing the nuclear threshold will prompt Saudi Arabia to strive to reach a strategic balance with Iran.
