Orizontas Consultant Dean Sherr says “Iran does as Iran does” without consideration for other countries’ influence.
It has been revealed Foreign Affairs Minister Penny Wong put in a rare phone call to Iran shortly after the October 7 terror attacks by Hamas against Israel.
Ms Wong has asked if Iran is willing to assist in preventing the spread of violence through the Middle East.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese believes Iran is the “major destabilising force in the region,” Mr Sherr told Sky News Australia.
“Iran’s kind of at the centre of all of this instability and conflict.”
