We can understand clearly that both the Iranian regime and the US have several contradictory interests.

The Iranian regime wants to achieve nuclear capability, erase Israel from the map, and support terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. Additionally, the Iranian regime supports Shia efforts to create instability for the oil-rich American allies in the Gulf. The interests of the US are the opposite.
