Iran's New Nuclear Weapons Negotiator

I've been told that Saeed Jalili, who has been appointed to be Iran's nuclear negotiator (and chief of the national security council) is not only a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war but someone who survived Iraqi chemical weapons attacks. If that is the case, we can assume that this is someone who doesn't put much trust in international agreements or security guarantees.

He may also amplify the tendencies in the current leadership that would rather have the capabilities and even the weapons if possible as the only firm assurances for regime survival.
