JCPOA belongs to whole world, not just US – Mogherini

The EU is standing solidly behind the JCPOA
Despite the bad blood between Iran and Obama, he did push the JCPOA through by the skin of his teeth

[ Editor’s Note:  Iran’s president Rouhani’s comments a few days ago about the US paying a heavy price for breaching the Iran nuclear deal were not a threat of military action, but the US continuing to isolate itself on the world stage diplomatically.

Mogherini used strong language in showing not only EU support but using the term “belongs to the whole world” in support of the JCPOA. It is clear that she agrees with President Rouhani.

That has been kept low key in our controlled media, but revealed below, is that Britain, predictably 100% with the US on foreign policy, is not on board the Trump “It’s a bad deal” mantra, proof of just how isolated the US will be if it walks away from the deal.

I just did the Press TV post Trump UN speech coverage, which was a punishment for me to have to listen to, what I called Trump’s, bi-polar foreign policy. He is for collective action when everyone else does what the US tells them to, but then he is “Mr. go it alone” when they will not, an embarrassing thing to watch him say to a UN audience who knew what a moral and diplomatic fraud that was.

Is Trump burning American foreign policy down?

Trump in not going it alone on his Iran threat hype, but has a secret agreement with Israel and the Saudis, a retribution maneuver to try to kill the Iran nuclear deal and sell the world on Tehran being the big honcho center of terrorism, which only the NeoCon koolaid drinkers really buy.

Trump is American unexceptionalism at its best, or maybe I should say its worst, and that makes him what he claims others to be…a serious threat. The defense budget numbers published today showed $640 billion for “basing alone”, but without a breakdown on the foreign basing cost.

His description of the current Mideast situation was a Mother Goose story, a complete fiction, which everyone listening to his speech, including Niki Haley, was well aware. He is selling us that the Syria people have not supported Assad the dictator, when we know from our own significant sources there that they know the US supported the use  of proxy terrorism against then in the pursuit of “it’s interests”.

We will see what Americans have to say about the speech, as in are they so numbed out as to just swallow it whole. Frankly I am quite worried, as I see them do it so often Jim W. Dean ]

The Iran nuclear agreement was the result of huge negotiations and careful construction

 –  First published  …  September 19,  2017  –

European Union’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, says the nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries works fine and belongs to the entire world, not just the United States.

“I have said many times that the agreement is working fine, [and] the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) [has] confirmed several times that Iran is fulfilling its obligations,” Mogherini said on Monday.

Commenting on the possible US withdrawal from the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), she said the agreement was not signed with one country.
“This deal belongs to the international community,” the top EU diplomat said.

US President Donald Trump, who had made no secret of opposing the nuclear agreement in his election campaign, has threatened to “tear up” the agreement, calling it “the worst deal ever negotiated.”

The United State, which is a party to the landmark nuclear agreement, seems to be laying out a case for abandoning it, with Trump having expressed his readiness to declare Iran in breach of its side of the JCPOA as early as next month.

However, Washington’s European allies seek to prevent the collapse of the deal and are stepping up efforts to convince Trump not to abandon it as world leaders have gathered in New York for the 72nd annual session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Mogherini added that she acknowledged the EU’s task to make sure that all parties to the JCPOA were fully implementing their obligations under the deal.
Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China – plus Germany signed the nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015 and started implementing it on January 16, 2016.

JCPOA belongs to whole world, not just US: EU foreign policy chief

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limitations on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran. The senior EU official further noted that the ministerial meeting of the Iran-P5+1 Joint Commission monitoring the implementation of the JCPOA would be held on September 20.

Britain strongly supports JCPOA: Johnson

In a separate development, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also on Monday expressed his country’s firm support for efforts made to ensure implementation of the JCPOA.

In a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in New York, the two sides stressed the importance of improving bilateral relations and discussed ways to enhance banking and consular cooperation.

Zarif and Johnson also exchanged views on leading regional issues, including the developments in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain and Afghanistan.*


  1. As the behind the scenes battle intensifies everything is up for renege/renegotiations. Desperate to stop the money power blood hemorrhaging the Washington crime bosses are fuming. The MSM is turned up to a fever pitch reflecting their fanatical desperation. Trump now has to do all sorts of contortions and about face spins. Amazingly the UK is not jumping into the fracas as the Royals believe they can weather the turmoil from a back row seat, maintain their image by demonstrating that ‘discretion is the better part pf valor’. The Royals know full well that it is over for gross violent global crime and destruction and believe their empire,image and legacy can and will survive if they play their refined regal card being above it all. Boys will be boys, tantrums and all, and would be better off listening to their regal elders.

  2. “US President Donald Trump, who had made no secret of opposing the nuclear agreement in his election campaign, has threatened to “tear up” the agreement, calling it “the worst deal ever negotiated.”

    Why does he call it the worst deal ever negotiated? Because he’s got Netanyahu’s hand shoved up his a$$, working his stupid mouth like a ventriloquist dummy. He’s a total Israeli stooge and it couldn’t be more obvious. America is being sacrificed by Israel on the alter of Baal. Those dirty little serpentine scumbags who pretend to be Jews are ruining the world, and I hope they fall on their face so hard that they never get back up.

  3. I am unsure if the continued demise and influence of Israel on the world stage is due to the incompetence of the Trump administration or maybe because of covert competence. What is said and what is done seems poles apart. Syria is a watershed. Lets see what develops with Iran. Interesting to note there has been no real outrage at Hezbollah and Iran being within striking distance of Israels borders, except by Netanyahu and his diaspora shrills. Either the Trump administration is super incompetent in support for their “closest ally???”, or they are achieving counter goals whilst appearing otherwise. The irony is that deception is classic Israeli and Mossad modus operandi. Certainly the screaming media (Assad is using chemical weapons) mantra is losing its impact and in fact achieving a negative effect to what is intended. Interesting times indeed.

  4. Mogherini is spot on here, however mutual EU conscience is selective at best, the memory too. Incidents are always created and overused to criminalize non-western countries for not nodding heads when they are asked to do so. We’ll see how EU commission reacts after Catalan referendum. There are wars being build up on the border of every country that fits the bias eugenical western outlaw description, Iran, Russia, China, Venezuela, you name it.

  5. Trump is the President of New York and You Know Who runs that place – fronted by the NY Fed. Boris has strong City of London connections. Paul Kennedy predicted the decline of Great Powers in a shortening cycle and the PNAC/9-11/ Invade Seven Countries was a Double Strategy to accelerate the decline of the USA and to Balkanise the Middle East and North Africa to make them Ripe For The Plucking. Done. Meantime the Smart Money has seen this all coming and planned way ahead as usual – I studied Developmental Economics in 1973 with Comparitive Economics between India and China. It has been that long in the Gestation, at least. MacInder knew that ultimately Power would shift to The World Island and the whole Great Game In Asia, to contest the Great Land Mass of Russia at the Centre and the 1917 Revoloution, together with the Naval Encirclement has been in operation for centuries. The Wise Guys think way ahead.

    • CP… you are spot on. The encirclement is the name of the game. The High Speed Silk Road with all vital utilities alongside, mega solar farms in the deserts of China will provide a strong spine for the The World Island rendering it a deterent to the pirate nations. The Island will trade along land routes and use less costly defensive weapons to protect its seashores. Looking ahead Germany is a land power and it will sooner or later abandon the US and Nato to join Russia and China. Syria was not about defeating ISIS as much as it was denying the US a strategic foothold next to a Russian base to protect Israel. The next place the US will be denied a foothold will be Afghanistan. China and Russia will bleed the US with Stinger missiles, payback is hell, and unite the factions in Afghanistan. The days of piracy of the high seas are over.

    • CP 2… When China and Russia complete and secure the Silk Road, Israel’s misbehavior will have to end in the face of the expansion of the Silk Road into Africa, or Israel will be considered as it has convinced the world it is America’s foothold. It is really quiet simple use your navy for trading and be welcomed as the Arabs did on the route trades or loot and be destroyed. Churn butter or smith swords, it is for the blind to see one needs to do both. That is what the adult leaders of the world are doing, trade and defensive weapons.
