Iran Foreign Minister Heads To Brussels To Save Nuclear Deal

Share

The Iranian foreign minister is also set to hold talks with Russian head of foreign affairs Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Monday and foreign chiefs from the United Kingdom, France and Germany, as well as Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, in Brussels on Tuesday.

Major European powers have sought to keep Iran in a landmark worldwide nuclear agreement after President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the pact and promised tough economic sanctions against Tehran.

Susan Rice, former national security adviser of Obama and United States ambassador to the UN, warned that U.S. withdrawal "will not force Iran back to the negotiating table... but will leave Iran's nuclear program unconstrained, and an inconstant America isolated from its allies and far less safe".

As Macron told Germany's Der Spiegel when asked about the most likely effect of US withdrawal: "That would mean opening Pandora's box".

Mr Johnson said that there remained a few months before the impact of American sanctions would be felt, adding that this gave "a margin to work on our response".

Britain's Foreign Minister Boris Johnson was blunt about the chances of avoiding USA sanctions that also seek to prohibit foreign companies from doing business with Iran. The European Union is also making a move to block the possibility of USA sanctions against European companies. John Kerry along with several other governments worked hard to get this agreement passed.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that Tehran would remain committed to its 2015 nuclear deal if its interests were protected.

But Pompeo said Washington was keen to thrash out a more wide-ranging deal with its allies as another top official said Iran had been "on the march" throughout the Middle East since the nuclear agreement was signed.

The president predicted with breezy optimism that breaking the deal would lead to a better agreement in the future, one that would not only impose tougher limits on Iran's nuclear research but force Tehran to change its entire foreign policy as well. "Now, that will not happen!"

Trump's decision has angered Washington's allies in Europe as well as China and Russian Federation. "We have no illusions about Iran's disruptive behavior, but we think we can tackle those in other ways", British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said.

According to deal supporters, Iran has majestically lived up to every promise. Macron told Trump in their telephone call on Saturday that he was anxious about stability in the Middle East, according to Macron's office. Some of the reasons were economic, noting that Europe's trade with the United States is much larger than Europe's trade with Iran. But in an interview on ABC's "This Week" program, Bolton said: "That's not the policy of the administration".

"It is a trade-off and a sensible trade-off and.it is the only really workable way we can see to stop Iran getting a nuclear weapon".

Zarif said little to reporters Tuesday but suggested he wanted to discuss the deaths of dozens of Palestinians in Gaza as well as the nuclear deal, which U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from last week.

European diplomats, speaking on background because they did not have authorization to talk otherwise, said on Tuesday that they felt no great urgency, which was just as well, given the difficulty of the task. And that's the central flaw of Trump's move. Instead, Washington today finds itself in a high-risk, high-reward game of sanctions enforcement-not against its chief Middle Eastern adversary, but rather, against its major global partner.
