No one has really accused the US of stealing the Iran deal away from its signature partner, and effectively renouncing the UN

Iran has ‘no problem’ talking to US if it apologizes & offers refund over nuclear deal – President Rouhani

…by Russia Today, Moscow

[ Editor’s Note: Iran is doing a little dance with Trump, parrying his silly offer of talks when he is trying to impose snapback JPCOA sanctions, when the US is no longer in the deal.

This would set a precedent where the US could go into an international agreement, then withdraw, but insist that the obligations of the other parties be enforced or the US will take ‘unipolar’ action.

Iran, after all it has been through, will have none of this. Rouhani tweeked Trump’s nose with this offer to be happy to talk after Iran has been compensated for reneging on the JCPOA. He will wait to see what happens in November.

A desperate Trump might still want to start an Iran war to save himself by playing the great defender, but I am not sure the military would allow itself to be used like this.

As it is, Republicans facing tough elections will be looking for advisors to save themselves from going down with Trump. Trump is down another two points in the Fox poll after the Tulsa debacle. NEO published my article on it within 12 hours, versus the usual couple of days.

This week Trump could get roasted from the virus opening up spikes not only on infections, but hospitalizations. He was hoping to be able to lay any of that bad news on governors who made the opening decisions. The pattern for success in the Asian states was simple. Test a lot, find infections, and contact trace them to put those exposed into quarantine quickly.

Thus we have another Trump flump…’more testing just runs up more cases’, end of story. But that is not the end of the story, Donald. His losing in November will be the end of the storyJim W. Dean ]

Iran has endured a lot of changes, and will continue to do so

– First published … June 24, 2020

Nothing is preventing Tehran from engaging in talks with Washington, provided that it comes up with apologies – and reimbursement – for losses in the 2015 nuclear pact America walked out on, President Hassan Rouhani has said.

“We have no problem with talking to the US,” Rouhani declared, in a nationally-broadcast speech on Wednesday. The only condition is that “Washington meets its obligations under the nuclear deal, apologizes and compensates Tehran for its withdrawal from the 2015 pact,” the president said, as quoted by Reuters.

Rouhani made it clear, however, that “these calls for talks with Tehran are just words and lies.” US President Donald Trump has previously offered to negotiate with Iran without any preconditions and to meet with Rouhani in person.

Washington repeated the offer of “serious talks” this January – but the timing of this couldn’t have been more questionable, as it came on the heels of the death of Qassem Soleimani, a renowned Iranian military leader, in an American missile strike.

Tehran, for its part, has consistently ruled out dealing with Washington under pressure, or trading vital national interests.

Last year, however, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif announced that he pitched a suggestion to the US, under which Iran would permanently accept international inspections of its nuclear program, in return for the lifting of US sanctions.

Following his pattern of being suspicious towards Iran, Trump green-lighted the pullout from the hard-earned nuclear pact in 2018. Shortly after the US formally ceased to be a member, it slapped Iran’s oil trade, finances, investment activities, and other crucial sectors with sweeping penalties under the so-called “maximum policy pressure.”

This week, Washington will try to secure a UN backing for an indefinite extension of an embargo that bans countries from selling or transferring arms to Iran unless approved by the Security Council. In order to pass, their draft resolution requires nine votes in favor and no vetoes from China, Russia, Britain or France – a quartet of countries still adhering to the 2015 nuclear deal.

  1. The offer Iran should make is that they will subject their nuclear program to unlimited restrictions and inspections, as long as the exact same conditions are applied to Israel.
