Iran’s FM Zarif dismisses E3 triggering of JCPOA’s dispute mechanism as ‘illegal’
[ Editor’s Note: The E3 is borrowing from Trump’s style. If you want to back out of a deal, you just throw some crap up on the wall to see if it sticks. There is little followup on EU news in the US press, so we don’t know what the public reaction is, but the E3 did follow up with the same “we want to save the JCPOA” song we have been hearing for a long time.
No one expects to see any quick new sanctions from the EU, but what is most pitiful is that the E3 has not even been able to get medicine through to Iran. How lame is that?
Trump’s impeachment has taken the headlines off Iran a bit, and as for the plane shoot down, there is only so much you can write about “where the black box is” before the public gets bored.
The China Phase One agreement signing seems hung up, as Trump does not want a big news bomb to fall on that day. There are many flying around out there like drones, with Trump packages hanging on their wings, wanting to do unto him like he has done to so many others, like change their worlds… JD ]
