MEK: Iran Regime Nuclear Extortion
According to the report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), nuclear talks on Iran’s nuclear program have been on hold for approximately four months. Meanwhile, with the formation of Ebrahim Raisi’s cabinet, Tehran stated that, as a new government, it is not prepared to continue negotiations with key world powers.
The US wants the Iranian government to return to talks
Hossein Amir-abdollahian, the regime’s foreign minister, said that if the US wants the Iranian government to return to talks, it should first release the $10 billion that South Korea has barred Iran from receiving.
He claimed that Iran would return to negotiate “very soon.” Officials from other negotiation parties derided this, claiming that they don’t understand what “very soon” means. Between the two, the US House of Representatives and Senate, as well as Arab countries, are putting pressure on Iran to avoid becoming a nuclear power.
On October 21, the state-run daily Jahan-e-Sanat reported, “Expectations from the [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] JCPOA should not be raised because the Iranian government is not in a position where it wants to set a condition and gain concessions.”
Iran has no choice but to lower its expectations
“In the current situation, Iran has no choice but to lower its expectations. With this current approach, we need to enter negotiations and talk directly with the United States.
“We are not in a position at all to make conditions before the negotiations and say that they should credit $ 10 billion to our account to that we negotiate.”
On October 20, the Mardom Salari daily investigated three impediments to the JCPOA, the first of which is that “the US seeks the JPCOA in addition to regional negotiations, namely the JPCOA Plus, to curb the Iranian government’s regional role.”
Return to full compliance with the JPCOA
The second issue is addressed was that, in order to return to full compliance with the JPCOA, the Iranian government asked the US and the European Union to ensure that the European Union upholds its duties in the event that the US government violates the JCPOA. Neither the United States nor the European Union, according to the publication, have provided such a guarantee.
The final issue has to do with weaponry. In October of last year, UN sanctions on Iran’s arms trade were eased. “The Biden administration is experiencing internal problems and cannot order its cancellation,” the newspaper reported.
The regime’s poor predicament
The regime’s poor predicament, which could lead to national protests, was warned by Jahan-e-Sanat:
“In a situation where the soul of the economy and, as a result, the soul of the people who are being crushed and suffocated under the pressure of livelihood problems, the generalization and repetition of issues such as who left the JCPOA and who needs the lifting of sanctions (pointing to the US government) continues in a situation where the soul of the economy and, as a result, the soul of the people who are being crushed and suffocated under the pressure of livelihood problems.”
“By no means should this matter be left unresolved in the next two or three months.” If that occurs, the opposing side will make its decision, and a fresh round of Trumpism will ensue. But why should we strive for a Biden Trumpism, which is arguably more dangerous than Trump Trumpism?”
