Iran's policy of "strategic" patience with the United States can help it continue to receive the political, security and military dividends of the 2015 nuclear deal and frustrate American and Israeli attempts to undermine the country's power, a political observer said. 
In a recent article, Ali Mousavi Khalkhali, the editor-in-chief of the Iranian Diplomacy website, said the Islamic Republic has made a conscious choice to act patiently in the face of US President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement and the subsequent sanctions, as it hopes its patience will eventually pay off. 
"Trump and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu have so far not achieved what they had expected to gain out of the US exit from the nuclear agreement, particularly because the international community, including Europe, Russia and China, are insisting that the deal should be saved, are backing it and are providing the necessary political support to keep it alive."
