Biden* Bends Over For Iran, Will Lift All Sanctions
Quote:Officials in Iran once again debunked claims by the U.S. State Department and friendly media that the Biden Administration is in “indirect” talks with Tehran on Wednesday, stating the Islamic regime has nothing to discuss without an end to every American sanction on the rogue state.

State Department spokesman Ned Price confirmed Monday that President Joe Biden approved travel for his top Iran envoy, Robert Malley, to Vienna, Austria, where the remaining signatories to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal would be meeting this week. While Price claimed Malley would be in town for “indirect” talks with the partners in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iranian officials quickly dismissed this claim, asserting that “no representative from the United States will attend the Joint Commission meeting or related expert meetings and no direct and indirect negotiations with the United States are on the agenda of Iran’s delegation.”

Iranian officials Wednesday again repeated their clarification that they are not in discussions with any representatives of the Biden administration and that they will only address the Americans if the United States repeals all existing sanctions on Iran. Iran is currently classified as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, which imposes one of the most stringent lists of sanctions available to American diplomats. The classification is not connected to any sanctions imposed under President Donald Trump for violations of the nuclear deal or other sanctions related to human rights abuses against the Iranian people, but Tehran insists they all be repealed together.

“From Iran’s viewpoint, all American sanctions — including the Obama-era sanctions, the sanctions restored by Trump and the additional sanctions in the Trump-era labeled as non-nuclear — must be terminated,” an unnamed “senior” Iranian official told PressTV, an Iranian state media outlet. “Iran’s condition for returning to its JCPOA commitments is the lasting removal of all the entire sanctions.”

Malley, the Biden envoy, is staying in a separate hotel from where the JCPOA meeting is occurring and reportedly has no contact with Iranian diplomats, yet pro-Biden American news outlets have claimed a diplomatic breakthrough is underway in Vienna. The countries actually invited to the meeting — Russia, China, Germany, France, the UK, and Iran — concluded their talks on Tuesday and will not meet again until Friday. They reportedly agreed “to establish two expert-level working groups, one to work on the lifting of sanctions and the other to work on nuclear issues,” according to Iran’s PressTV.

“Iran and U.S. Agree on Path Back to Nuclear Deal,” the New York Times claimed in a headline Wednesday. A CNN analysis applauded that Biden would “spiritually” be involved in the meeting.

“The talks are an important goal for Biden, who was vice president when President Barack Obama struck the original deal and who has surrounded himself with advisers who took part in the lengthy negotiations,” the Washington Post observed, after having admitted that no “talks” between Tehran and Washington are actually occurring.

An opinion piece at NBC News by an expert who admits in the piece to sharing dinner with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani celebrated that the talks, involving no American representatives and resulting in no concrete results, allowed “Biden to fix Trump’s mess.” Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018 due to Iran’s consistent violations of the provisions of the agreement.

“The Vienna talks may be our last chance to restore the deal. The clock is ticking,” the column breathlessly predicts, without clarifying that the United States was not invited and is not participating in the talks.

PressTV and other Iranian outlets such as Mehr, Fars, and Tasnim have, in contrast, portrayed the Vienna talks as a matter between Iran and JCPOA signatories like China and Russia, not America. PressTV highlighted the Chinese envoy’s aggressive demands that Washington lift all sanctions at the meeting.

“The justified request of the injured party, rather than the offending party, should be confirmed and satisfied first. This is a basic right-or-wrong question. The US should lift all sanctions against Tehran and on this basis, Iran can resume full compliance to the nuclear deal,” Wang Qun, China’s envoy in Vienna, told reporters Tuesday, according to PressTV.

Russia, one of Iran’s closest international allies, expressed reservations on calling the Vienna talks a success, rather than focusing on pressuring Washington.

“It is too early to talk about a major breakthrough,” Russian representative at the meeting Mikhail Ulyanov said Tuesday, according to the Russian news agency Tass, noting that there are about 1,500 individual sanctions currently on the Iranian regime, all of which Tehran wants removed.

Price, the State Department spokesman, described Tuesday’s talks as “constructive” and “welcome,” with little emphasis on America’s absence there.

“It is a potentially useful step as we seek to determine what it is that the Iranians are prepared to do to return to compliance with the stringent limitations under the 2015 deal and, as a result, what we might need to do to return to compliance ourselves,” Price suggested.

RE: Biden* Bends Over For Iran, Will Lift All Sanctions
Quote:Iranian state media on Wednesday praised Iran’s 25-year, $400 billion cooperation agreement with China as a “geopolitical game-changer” that positioned Beijing as leader of the effort to drag the United States back into the nuclear deal, even as Iran violates the deal in increasingly brazen ways.

Iran’s PressTV quoted “American-Chinese social media activist” Carl Zha scoffing at American media for getting “worked up” about the deal, conservatives portraying it as a failure of the Biden administration’s foreign policy, China hawks worried about a new Axis of Evil taking shape, and Iranian dissidents who see the deal as “somehow Iran selling out to China.”

Zha could not think of any rational reason why any of Iran or China’s critics would be apprehensive about the deal, instead, chalking it up to irrational anti-Iranian and anti-Chinese animus and “U.S. policymakers” worried about losing “the position of the U.S. as a hegemon in the world” to China.

He then laid out how China is now positioned to shield the malevolent Iranian regime from consequences for its human rights abuses and dangerous pursuit of nuclear weapons:

China and Iran Cooperation goes a long way. I mean not just, just, historically, but also in the modern time, you know China has always dealt with Iran and in the latest round of sanctions the US placed on Iran, China continue to do business (with Iran) despite the US sanctions because, you know, the, the US sanctions rely on the premise that the US has dominate the global finance right and because US threatened to sanction, any company, any government that has dealing with Iran, but China is in a position today where you can basically ignore the US sanction and continue to, to work on its traditional relationship, normal relationship, with Iran. And I think that is what has upset people in Washington, because they see the US is losing its grip.

Zha added that Iran and China’s other Belt and Road partners are hoping to “bypass the U.S. Navy’s chokehold on the world shipping trade,” which is thinly-disguised code for Iran and China gaining the ability to threaten global shipping and shut down the oil trade. China constantly complains about U.S. Navy Freedom of Navigation operations through waters Beijing illegally claims to control, while Iran constantly threatens to attack shipping in the Persian Gulf – and sometimes follows through on those threats.

China dove into the argument over the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), on Tuesday by describing the United States as the “offending party” and demanding it make the first move by unilaterally lifting all sanctions against the regime in Tehran.

“The justified request of the injured party, rather than the offending party, should be confirmed and satisfied first. This is a basic right-or-wrong question. The U.S. should lift all sanctions against Tehran and on this basis, Iran can resume full compliance to the nuclear deal,” declared Chinese envoy to the United Nations Wang Qun after meeting with representatives from Iran and the European signatories to the JCPOA.

“The U.S. should return to the deal unconditionally, and lift all illegal sanctions against Iran and long-arm jurisdiction over a third party,” demanded Cheng Hua, China’s ambassador to Iran.

Europeans, and the Biden State Department, largely ignored these demands and blandly praised the Vienna meeting as “constructive.” The Biden State Department was not invited to the Vienna meeting and has had no known interactions with the Iranian regime.

European representatives pushed for the formation of two “working groups” that would handle U.S. sanctions and Iran’s flagrant violations of the JCPOA as separate issues. A senior Iranian official told PressTV his government would flatly refuse that approach – with China’s heavyweight support, Tehran demands complete and unilateral elimination of all U.S. sanctions before it will consider slowing its rush to nuclear weapons.

“From Iran’s viewpoint, all American sanctions – including the Obama-era sanctions, the sanctions restored by Trump, and the additional sanctions in the Trump-era labeled as non-nuclear – must be terminated,” the official said. “Iran’s condition for returning to its JCPOA commitments is the lasting removal of all the entire sanctions.”

Iran continued merrily enriching uranium far beyond any plausible need, and far beyond the limits set by the JCPOA, even as Tehran and China demanded unconditional American submission.

The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) reported on Wednesday that Iran has now stockpiled 55 kilograms of uranium enriched to 20 percent, demonstrating an even greater capacity for enrichment than Iran possessed before the nuclear deal, which should be a rather embarrassing revelation for defenders of the JCPOA.

According to the AEOI, the new advanced centrifuges Iran isn’t supposed to be spinning, at the Fordow site it’s not supposed to be using, have helped it to enrich at least 40 percent more uranium than the regime commanded in January. Experts consider 20 percent enrichment the last practical step before reaching weapons-grade production.

There is little doubt that President Joe Biden desperately wants to return to the JCPOA, reaping praise from left-wing media for correcting his predecessor Donald Trump’s “mistake” in withdrawing from it, but Iran’s flagrant violations and China’s demands for abject submission are making the job more difficult than Biden expected.

A group of over 300 Iranian-American activists on Wednesday wrote a letter to Biden urging him to make human rights reforms in Iran a condition of lifting sanctions – a demand Tehran and its patrons in Beijing will reject out of hand, especially since the Chinese are making a very big deal about resisting America’s use of sanctions to impose its supposedly narrow vision of human rights on other nations.

RE: Biden* Bends Over For Iran, Will Lift All Sanctions
Quote:Americans are hurting right now and it won’t get any better for years at least not for the country under control by Biden/Harris. But, if you happen to be an enemy of this country, you are doing just fine.

China and Iran are in the catbird seat. President Trump would seize oil tankers belonging to Iran who tried to slip away in order to raise money for the terrorist regime. But, they no longer have to hide.

Iran sent 4 oil tankers with three million barrels of oil to Syria. Not only did Biden allow it to go through he is promising Iran to lift all sanctions if they sign a new agreement. And why wouldn’t they? Iran has been violating the last agreement before the ink was dry. They can always sign a new agreement they never have to worry about keeping and in return, all sanctions will be lifted.

It is money that will be used to sponsor terrorism.

FOX News reported yesterday:

Millions of crude oil barrels are on their way to Syria from Iran, violating U.S. sanctions.

According to a civilian naval intelligence firm, there are four vessels with more than 3 million barrels combined on their way to the Baniyas oil refinery, near the Mediterranean coast.

A satellite photo captured two days ago over the southern section of the Red Sea shows four vessels: Arman 114, Sam 121, Daran and Romina.

The Arman 114 is formerly known as the Adrian Darya 1, a vessel in the center of the U.S.-Iran standoff in the summer of 2019. It was sanctioned by the Trump administration in August 2019, following its attempts to transfer the oil to Syria.

Syria has been struggling with an oil shortage, relying primarily on Iranian help. However, with the burdening sanctions on the two countries, the shortage has turned into a crisis, causing power outages and rationing petrol.

The United States and Iran are holding indirect talks on Tuesday in which they will discuss a deal where everything is one-sided just like the last deal Obama made with Iran.

Why do they think it is productive to hold talks where the leadership leads chants saying “Death to America.”? Trump made genuine peace deals involving Arab countries and Israel. Just one more difference between the two.

RE: Biden* Bends Over For Iran, Will Lift All Sanctions
Quote:The governments of China and Russia, which appear to be taking the lead in talks between Iran and the remaining partners in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, expressed optimism after talks concluded on Friday for the week that progress had occurred.

The conversations over the agreement formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) began this week in Vienna, Austria. Representatives from China, Russia, and Iran — as well as the United Kingdom, France, and Germany — met to discuss, they claimed, a way to repair what remains of the agreement after years of violations by Tehran and President Donald Trump withdrawing the United States from it in 2018. Notably absent from the invitation list was the United States, which had no formal representation in this week’s talks.

The administration of President Joe Biden claimed it would engage in “indirect” talks with Iran and sent its special envoy on the matter, Robert Malley, to Vienna. Iranian officials clarified Tuesday, however, that “no negotiations will take place between the representatives of Iran and the United States” and no talks of any kind, direct or otherwise, would take place this week.

Malley is staying in a separate hotel in Vienna from where the Iran deal talks are occurring and appears to have met only with officials not privy to the negotiations, including representatives of the Austrian government and the International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA).

With no input from Washington, Iran has used the talks to vocally and repeatedly insist that it will not begin to discuss returning to compliance on the JCPOA with the United States unless the Biden administration immediately lifts all sanctions on Iran, not just those regarding the nuclear weapons issue. This would presumably include the accurate branding of Iran as a State Sponsor of Terrorism due to its international support of Hezbollah, a Shiite jihadist organization, and its involvement in deadly attacks on civilians such as the 1994 bombing of Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) in Buenos Aires.

A Russian representative to the IAEA branded this “progress” on Friday.

“The #JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) participants took stock of the work done by experts over the last three days and noted with satisfaction the initial progress made,” Mikhail Ulyanov wrote on Twitter. “The Commission will reconvene next week in order to maintain the positive momentum.”

“All parties have narrowed down their differences and we do see the momentum for gradually evolving consensus,” Wang Qun, China’s ambassador to the IAEA, agreed, according to Reuters.

Both nations have loudly condemned unilateral sanctions on any country and, in particular, opposed American sanctions on their ally Iran.

“The justified request of the injured party, rather than the offending party, should be confirmed and satisfied first. This is a basic right-or-wrong question,” Qun said Tuesday. “The U.S. should lift all sanctions against Tehran and on this basis, Iran can resume full compliance to the nuclear deal.”

Reuters reported American officials claim they are “being briefed” on the talks they were not invited to, without elaborating.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran, made clear he had no appetite for negotiation Thursday, the day before Moscow and Beijing declared the talks had yielded “progress.”

“Verification [of US sanctions removal] means [being capable of] selling oil in an official manner, with ease and under normal conditions, and its money be received by Iran,” Khamenei insisted, again making the case for the lifting of sanctions unrelated to the nuclear agreement. Khamenei also accused “the signatories of the nuclear agreement,” without discriminating among them, of having violated the deal and claimed “Tehran is in no hurry for Washington to come back to the nuclear agreement” in a video posted to Instagram.
“Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said other signatories to the deal have no right to set conditions for Tehran as long as they have not fulfilled their obligations, emphasizing that this is Iran’s definitive policy from which Tehran will not step back,” Iran’s PressTV reported.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry also took the opportunity Thursday to boast of its heightened uranium enrichment abilities.

“Our 20% enrichment is now moving even faster than the speed envisaged by the Islamic Consultative Assembly (the Iranian Parliament) in its law, and 20% enriched materials are being produced now,” Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi claimed, stating that the enrichment, which violates the nuclear deal, would continue until the United States lifted all existing sanctions on Iran.

“Araqchi also denied indirect talks with Washington through the European parties to the JCPOA, saying the talks involve China and Russia in addition to the Europeans,” PressTV added.

State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters in a contentious exchange Thursday that the Biden administration would not repeal sanctions unrelated to the nuclear deal, such as those related to human rights abuses against the Iranian people.

“We believe that Iran’s ballistic missile program, that Iran’s violation of the — Iran’s human rights abuses, that Iran’s support for malign proxies, Iran’s support for terrorism — we believe all of those things pose a profound challenge to us as well as to our regional partners,” Price said. That is why we will continue, including through sanctions, to push back on those issues.”

When a reporter replied, “Well, why couldn’t you have said this like yesterday or the day before?” Price insisted he “absolutely did” and again repeated that sanctions “will continue to be important tools” for confronting Tehran.

Price also insisted Malley was in discussions “right now with our European allies and our Russian and Chinese partners in this endeavor,” a claim for which no evidence exists and one that the allies and partners in question have not confirmed on the record.

Malley has been documenting his activities in Vienna on Twitter, which appear to be meetings with Austrian government leaders — who are not a party to the JCPOA — and the IAEA.

Russian and Chinese officials said on Friday that they expect talks to resume next week. Price noted Thursday that he expects Malley back in Washington this weekend.
