USA offers to work with Europe on new Iran deal

USA offers to work with Europe on new Iran deal

The question is whether the remaining signatories - the so-called EU-3, Russian Federation and China - can deliver the benefits of the accord, including access to global oil markets, trade and investment, that enticed the Iranians to join the agreement.

Trump weighed in later Sunday, saying his decision would limit Iran's regional ambitions.

Trump and Netanyahu have claimed that the Iranian government had violated the terms of the 2015 nuclear agreement by holding on to secret plans for developing nuclear weapons, by promoting a ballistic missile program, and by its military intervention in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq. Instead of geniality, what we've received from Iran is threats to wipe out Israel, the harassment of the USA military to the point of taking hostages and a bloody, terroristic presence in the Middle East meant to say Iran would soon be in murderous control.

"For the first time, Iran has the chance to show the world they are not the rogue nation they are always presented as, that they negotiated in good faith and keep to their commitments", said Karim Emile Bitar of the Institute for worldwide and Strategic Studies in Paris.

The announcement by Donald Trump that the U.S. would pull out of the agreement came with the restoration of sanctions against Tehran, including six individuals and three companies it claims are funnelling millions of dollars to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard's elite Quds Force. To the contrary, he has signaled he wants out of Syria, thereby ceding to Iran and Russian Federation a dominant position.

So far, China, France, Russia, Britain, Germany and Iran remain in the accord, which placed controls on Iran's nuclear program and led to a relaxation of economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there. This intervention and other interventions in Lebanon and Iraq have also bankrupted Iran economically.

The foreign minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Javad Zarif has arrived in Brussels ahead of a meeting with his British, French and German counterparts.

Tusk: Trump 'helped European Union rid itself of its illusions'
The EU should also be "grateful to President Trump", Tusk said, "because thanks to him we have got rid of all illusions . It's a moment of truth for Europe", he said.

"Remember how badly Iran was behaving with the Iran Deal in place", he said.

Iranian hardliners - who have long opposed President Hassan Rouhani's moves to improve ties with the West - are already mobilizing against the efforts to save the nuclear deal. They will allow the regime to label any genuine progressive or revolutionary opposition as an expression of support for the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Those who will suffer the most will be the Iranian popular masses. So they are not seeing so much benefit from Iran that they would be willing to risk sanctions.

We can confidently bet that this timely message was also directed to long-suffering North Korean people.

"We know it's a hard task but we are detemined to do it and we have started to work to put in place measures that help ensure this happens", she told reporters.

Those who are opposed to USA imperialism and all global and regional imperialist forces, need to express their support for progressive and revolutionary forces that are speaking out within Iran's labor, feminist, student and intellectual opposition movement. Great things can happen for the peace and stability of the Middle East.
