MEK Iran: Nuclear Extortion
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that on the eve of the session of the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei and his government officials in the “young Hezbollah government” decided to make an opportunistic retreat.
Mullahs regime reversed the nature of their retreat
They reversed the nature of their retreat, calling it a technical arrangement to replace the memory cards of monitoring cameras.
Misery and desperation are used to buy time for secret nuclear initiatives to continue, as well as to prevent the IAEA and other concerned countries from retelling the regime’s nuclear case before the IAEA Board of Governors and issuing a new resolution against the regime. As a result, it is done, fearful of having its nuclear case forwarded to the UN Security Council.
Iran’s initial position
“Given Iran’s initial position and its ultimate satisfaction with Grossi’s trip, Iran appears to have retreated and become inactive. This is because the situation would have been dangerous if Grossi had not arrived in Iran and reported negatively to the Governing Council.
Under those conditions, the issue would have gone to the Security Council, and before 2015, Iran would have been proclaimed an outlaw and a warmonger under Chapter VII of the Charter. In those conditions, Russia and China would almost certainly have signed a resolution against us, as they did previously.” On September 13, the state-run newspaper Jahan-e-Sanat published an article.
The policy of weakness and passivism
Despite the regime’s efforts to link the country’s economic fate to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), what has been accomplished is a policy of weakness and passivism, as well as ineffective propaganda. On September 13, a state-run newspaper, Aftab-e-Yazd, wrote about this issue:
“Don’t just ignore the issue of yesterday’s Iran-agency agreement. An intimate and hand-tailed sentence can be extracted and put on the shelf among the concluding statement lines issued, and between formal and dry words: politics and management are the realm of reality, not the dumb and absurd slogans of tribunes.”
The “bomb-seeking” regime
According to dissidents, this withdrawal does not imply that the “bomb-seeking” regime will return to the Vienna talks on its own.
Because it became evident during Rouhani’s administration’s six rounds of discussions that there would be no return to the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal, and that negotiations to lift some sanctions would ensue if Khamenei accepted a JCPOA plus its regional and missile cases.
The Governing Council’s decision
However, simply reaching an agreement with Rafael Grossi to replace the memory cards in surveillance cameras will not be enough to overturn the Governing Council’s decision and rescind the regime’s decree.
Despite the regime’s claims, according to Sputnik Farsi, the government has authorized agency inspectors to reuse surveillance cameras at Iran’s nuclear facilities, and according to Grossi’s rhetoric, this dialogue is not merely a “technical negotiation.”
Such an arrangement would just put the case on hold for the time being, rather than resolving it. In actuality, it will aggravate the confrontation between Iran, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and Western powers.
