EU must defend ‘core’ of Iran nuclear deal: Commission chief


…from Press TV, Tehran

Israel wants people to bring only a knife to a gun fight

[ Editor’s Note: Juncker is using code language here that he is OK with sanctions on Iran’s missile development, to keep Iran from having a retaliation ability to the first strike people in the neighborhood, primarily Israel who always had that in their quiver.

The Zionist extremists have always preferred to deal with countries that could not defend themselves, and the US has followed suit.

We adopted during the Clinton days a blank-check, first strike policy to attack anyone, any time, for any national security preference that we deemed necessary. I remember there was no blowback on it at the time whatsoever, or none that I saw; and I just assumed that I had missed it.

But Iran’s strategy of inviting everyone into Iran with development opportunities was a good long term defense strategy, as businessmen are not in the habit of wanting to kill their customers.

Good sustainable trade was always the ABC formula for avoiding conflict, but our dear Deep State saw that idea as a threat to its wealth, which has a long history of being based on turmoil. The more turmoil there is, the better they like it. That’s were we are now … Jim W. Dean ]

The European Union Commission chief, Jean-Claude Juncker, has warned about the adverse consequences of the United States’ move to pull out from a key nuclear agreement Iran signed with the P5+1 group of countries in 2015, saying the EU must adopt measures to protect the deal’s core provisions.

“The termination of the Iran agreement by the US doesn’t benefit global peace,” he said in an interview with Hannoversche Allgemeine newspaper on Saturday. “As co-architects of the Iran deal, we must defend its core,” he added.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the US, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany.

Trump also said he would reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

Speaking to reporters in Brussels on Monday ahead of a meeting of EU foreign ministers, the EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said the 28-nation bloc was determined to save the JCPOA despite the US pullout from the deal.

The European Union’s foreign policy chief says the bloc is determined to save the Iran nuclear agreement.

She added, “You know that we have been acting already at European Union level to put in place a set of measures to make sure that the nuclear agreement is preserved and the economic investments from the European side, but also from other sides in the world are protected.”

Juncker further said the nuclear pact should not be sacrificed for the sake of the US political expediency.

“The Middle East is on the cusp of great turmoil. And we are close,” he cautioned.

After Trump’s move to withdraw from the JCPOA, a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the US stood to suffer the most.

A senior Iranian official says the United States stands to suffer the most after its move to withdraw from the JCPOA.

Ali Akbar Velayati said, “The Islamic Republic of Iran fully protects its independence and will by no means bow to their (Americans’) bullying and we have proved this over the past 40 years.”

  1. I suspect that there are many EU politicians the received some of that $250billion to push the deal thru, can’t wait to see the list. Pitchforks & torches anyone??

  2. Do you not think the tentacles of the Cabal do not extend into Iran. The Iran deal was bad from the beginning, bad for Iran & bad for the US, set up by Cabal criminals. Why would US have to pay $250billion up front to get this this deal?? Time to sever the tentacles!

  3. The EU will stick with the agreement but, the UN will vote for more aggressive sanctions because Iran has defensive missiles capable of reaching Tel Aviv. Where’s my submarine?

  4. Recently there was a kid from Long Island, a Jewish boxer, I think his handlers nick named him the Jewish Hammer. He had compiled an unbeaten record, feasting on local nobodies and, somehow he got onto a couple of HBO cards, again against nobodies, who as expected he promptly knocked out. But even a well connected Jewish fighter has to someday bring home the bacon. I mean unless you’re a Zuckerburg the Temple can only take you so far. Right? In his 3rd, and last, fight on HBO he was moved up in class. It was obvious the Hammer lacked talent but, never the less the promotion was hyped with Max Kellerman and, Jim Lampley doing their best to sell this guy as a talent to fans who could see had no talent. Anyway pretty quickly the poor kid was hammered into submission and, carted back to palooka Ville.
    What I’m saying here is just what you’re saying. Israel is feasting on defenseless neighbors. As soon as Israel pushes Iran far enough to where Iran has to flex a muscle and give a proper response, then we will witness a lot of moaning and crying as missiles hit Tel Aviv. Nuts, I forgot Iran only has special anti-Semitic missiles so will be guilty of a hate crime for which annihilation is the only punishment. But, not before a few thousand Israelis bite the dust.

  5. Cry Baby Israel lover liar con artist draft dodger Trump is behaving like a spoiled brat at his own birthday party and is not pleased with the presents other gave him. So he starts a food fight at his own party and loses. Shame on you you lying coward Israel lover liar Trump. Good that the others stick to their guns on the Iran Agreement. International outlaw gangster Israel is the problem not Iran. Let’s see how long the others can stand up to a coward named Israel lover liar Trump. Please Trump do us all a favor and resign now pronto.
