Now that Iran's nuclear negotiator has resigned, Iran will become even more hard-line.
Larijani was an officer in the Iranian National Guard.
Those differences were revealed earlier this year when Larijani expressed dissatisfaction after the president contradicted him about attending a nuclear summit. Larijani was not in favor of attending. Ahmadinejad was.
Despite his hawkishness, Larijani actually prefers negotiations. Ahmadineajd does not.
So when Larijani submitted his resignation Ahmadinejad was quick to accept it. Now a relative unknown named Saleed Jalili, former deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs will take over as nuclear negotiator.
Jalili will do exactly what Ahmadinejad tells him to do.
