EU Rejects Rouhani’s 60-Day Deadline On Nuclear Deal

File image

The European Union has rejected a 60-day deadline set by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani for the remaining signatories to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) to address Tehran’s legal rights and protect its interests against U.S. sanctions.

“We reject any ultimatums and we will assess Iran’s compliance on the basis of Iran’s performance regarding its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPoA and the NPT (Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons),” an official statement released by the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and the foreign ministers of France, Germany and the UK on May 9 reads.

The statement was released in response to Iran’s May 8 decision to stop exporting excess uranium and heavy water. The country’s President gave the other parties in the JCPoA a 60-days ultimatum to employment their commitments under the deal and help Tehran overcome the increasing U.S. sanctions.

“We strongly urge Iran to continue to implement its commitments under the JCPoA in full as it has done until now and to refrain from any escalatory steps,” the EU statement added.

Despite rejecting Rouhani’s ultimatum, the European countries stressed that they will remain commitment to the agreement, which they described as “a key achievement of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture, which is in the security interest of all.”

The European countries also condemned U.S. sanctions on Tehran saying that they are determined to continue pursuing efforts to enable the continuation of legitimate trade with the Islamic country.

The EU’s statement will likely further complicate the situation as Iran appears to be determined to end its commitment to several terms of JCPoA in the face of U.S. sections and threats. So far, European countries have failed to assist Tehran in overcoming U.S. sanctions.

Love the self-righteous attitude of the EU. They huff at the ‘deadline’ by Iran after years of reneging on their obligation of lifting sanctions which was their primary obligation in the JCPOA.

I think it was primarily moronistan that kept sanctions in place, banking and so on which prevented companies from moronistan getting into the action. that goes to show that the neo-nazi morons (fatso = goering, bolton = himmler, abrams = heydrich and dunny the dunce most likely rudolf hess or some such dunderhead) can’t be trusted and that agreements are something you break when it suits you. europe saw great possibilities on the iranian market and dived right in, which is one reason why moronistan (aka usa -home of seriously defect morons) had to stop the european bonanza in iran.

Lol to anyone that would dare “Trust” the west. Just one big Parasitic family from the top down. Just ask EVERYONE else.

Not much the EU can do. Iran did not walk away from the agreement. Why should they be penalised and expected to continue with the agreement?

Interesting analysis of life in Europe and what Ukraine traded everything for, and not forgetting the Odessa Trade Union Massacre, 2 May 2014, where they burnt alive their youngsters.

It Is for Such A Europe That Ukrainians Killed Their Compatriots in Donbass & Burned People Alive in Odessa?… https://www.stalkerzone.org/it-is-for-such-a-europe-that-ukrainians-killed-their-compatriots-in-donbass-burned-people-alive-in-odessa/

Stfu, with the excuses. Facepalm yourself again and again…And again

AM Hants

Wow, such an eloquent comment. No excuses, just facts darling. Who walked away from the agreement? Who refused to walk away? Who is now touring the signature member states, trying to get them to join in the bullying of Iran? Clue, why is Pompeo over in the UK, trying to sweet talk May, with promises of trade, if only she will walk away from the Iran agreement? Where is his next port of call?

Sinbad2

The Europeans are as bad as the Americans, they just hide it better.
Notice how Macron is talking about if Iran withdraws from the deal, when really by not honoring their obligations under the deal it is the EU that is withdrawing.

Actually I always thought the US would break the deal, Americas word is worth less than used toilet paper, and they bought most of the European politicians years ago.

AM Hants

Same crowd rules the lot of them and nought to do with the people.

We are going back to feudalism.

two seriously rogue nuclear states are threatening iran with war, the two rogue states are unashamedly and openly braying for war which makes iran’s wish to acquire nukes all the more reasonable and justified.

the only fair solution to this situation would be to discontinue israel and send the squatters all the way across the atlantic to moronistan (aka usa – home of a hitler like junta with no respect for international law or the united nation) where they might be able to live in peace. so far the squatters have in every tangible respect forfeited its right to exist and the dismemberment of the false statehood israel is a corollary, which the world has better to accept. with the squatters occupying palestine no peace will ever be had for the middle east and the world – and if nothing else helps it should be done by force.

and netanyahu be brought before the ICC and the morons as well, fatso, bolton, abrams and the piece de resistance, dunny the super dunce.

Iran is testing rocket engine for ICBM. Iran condemned atomic bomb.
1+1= after Gringos attacked Iran with 100 tactical nukes, radioactive fallout will falling onto Pakistan and India, thus Iran will fire (now no existent) ICBM with uranium dust onto Gringos.

And Khazars will have their long awaited WW III.

Iran does not have nuclear weapons, but like Japan and Germany could produce them within months.

Saddam Hussein

When is the EU going to give a fuck about Israel’s nuclear weapons?

Rob

If America has nukes then every country must have nukes for deterrence. There is no other question or option.

America cannot attack those countries that have nukes and medium range missiles. Iran has both. There is no doubt.

Sinbad2

Back in the 1960’s the UK agreed to sell nukes to Australia, but our good friend and ally the USA vetoed the deal.

Rob

America has given their nukes to many countries.

Min Khin Kyaw

Israel is a European country so it can have nuclear weapon.

Saddam Hussein

Israel isnt a real country, its all Occupied Palestine.

Rob

President Rohani weak posture invite America and NATO to invade Iran. if it was any other Irani leader then he would tests nuclear weapons in 2001. Look to India, North Korea, Pakistan etc. They FCK America and NATO countries. They don’t care what is America.

Bob Smith

Iran don’t need Nuclear To beat US, trust me . They are ready it’s US chickens with Nuclear to even shot a single bullet. Trust me

If America has nukes then every country must have nukes for deterrence. There is no other question.

Real Anti-Racist Action

The indigenous tribes of Europe were conquered by a massive amount (millions) of USA and UK and Jewish invaders.
Europeans have no rights and now way to achieve Self Determination.
They are a conquered and enslaved people.
Until the occupying forces of the UK and USSA and Jew’s are pushed out and Europeans can have independence. They always must do what they are told to do by their slave masters.

UN sanction mandate to allow signatories to impound ships of countries which sell its sovereign legitimate natural resources.Because their under sanctions is bias,illegal and equal to piracy like Somalia pirates by USA NATO.This actions bring poverty just to block basic needed goods because USA NATO hides behind UN to decide who should sell and who should be destabilized and rob from mineral,natural and raw material gas and oil sale stop.USA NATO uses UN to impoverish the whole world just for their interest shake.As long as a country has world needed products it must freely sell it.This alone will outweigh poverty.Emergin Yemeni,Venezuela, Cuba,Iran,Syria dies not have nuclear weapons but are under sanctions because their are not working according to USA NATO decisions that is bias piracy and terrorizing other countries.

Xoli Xoli

USA France,Britain must be strip from veto power in UN security council.USA is NATO which have withdrew from human rights council Npt and more.What rights does USA have to attack and kills human beings or any terrorists.let only countries which abide by UN resolutions rules and procedures take the authority. How can terrorist states attack terrorists or is it because NATO is a nuclear states and therefore preventing others not to have nuclear weapons as their will just make and break rules like NATO states and Israel .

The winners of WWII claimed rulership of the planet, you won’t see any change until after WWIII.

Wegan

The EU is irrelevant. Russia and China are still weak and need another 10 years at least to grow enough manhood to stand up to the US.

Sinbad2

2 years ago the Chinese said that the US would be powerless to stop them in 5 years.

The current trade dispute will either lead to a US economic collapse, or a war.
You don’t win wars with braggery, Lyndon Baines Johnson tried that in Vietnam, and almost bankrupted America, and would have done if Nixon hadn’t gone to China cap in hand.

pussy EU want to play on both side

When Mosaddegh nationalized Iran’s oil industry, the Anglo-Americans removed him and enthroned the Shah. When the Shah went solo and wanted to modernize Iran (with a nuclear program), the same Anglo-Americans removed him and enthroned the Ayatollah Khomeini.

According to a recent article on Voltairenet, the Ayatollah Khomeini declared, after the war against Iran, that WMDs and nuclear weapons were against Islam and had thus issued an official decree to ban them and stop the Shah’s nuclear program.

Coincidence?

Sinbad2

The UK claimed exclusive ownership of all Iranian oil. Because the UK did not have the military muscle to stop Iran taking possession of its oil, they offered the USA 50% of the Iranian oil, if the US would overthrow the Iranian Government.

verner

and remember the neo-nazi morons out of washington dc never forgets and never forgives and thus those long lingering vendettas against north korea (kim jung un’s grandfather refused to accept sung man rhee as president on the korean peninsula) and mossadeq and the dethroning of the shah and russia that had the temerity to break up the american pending ownership of all important commodities in russia (after jeltsin’s departure from power) and so on and so on – cuba should be mentioned when castro took over american properties and put paid to american gambling and prostitution and cuba is still living under sanctions put in place by america. what to like – nothing just plain friggin contempt.

Omega

You continue portraying the UK and US as two separate entities when they are one and the same.

Sinbad2

OK they are both cut from the same cloth, but there is no honour among thieves, both would knife each other in the back if it suited.
The UK was preparing for war against the US prior to WWII

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Plan_Red

Omega

War Plan Red had nothing to do with the lack of honor among thieves. It was the result of US military men not seeing eye to eye with Britain who feared that the US who grow independently to become the world’s strongest naval force. Britain didn’t have full control of the US then to stir its direction at will. Things changed pre-WW2 when the thieves in question on both sides of the Atlantic merged their interests.

Ma_Laoshi

Well the UK is just the London branch of the US Govt; the less is said about them the better. But at the hour of truth, also France and Germany have Zionist governments. They may not like it when Washington sanctions their own companies, but ultimately that is the power they work for, and they know it. Both the Merkel and Macron governments complain about Iran’s missiles, which don’t violate any law or treaty and which wouldn’t appear to be any of FR/GER’s business. Yes those missiles would likely be unleashed on Israeli and Saudi targets if Iran is attacked; that’s what it means to have a deterrence.

It’s all the same team: when the chips are down, Merkel and Macron work to facilitate a jewish attack on Iran, not to prevent it.

Omega

It’s the other way around: the USA is a branch of the British ruling class. Carroll Quigley explains it best in his “The Anglo-American Establishment”; available for free on his estate website: http://www.carrollquigley.net/books.htm

I also invite you to read pages 8-10 (“What in Hell Is JPMorgan Chase?”) to have an overview of how the British elite hijacked the US economy (in imposing a system of usury instead of the political economy of the Founding Fathers): https://larouchepub.com/eiw/public/2013/eirv40n26-20130628/eirv40n26-20130628.php

Otherwise, I can’t agree more on Germany and France being mindless and stirred by Zionist forces.

Ma_Laoshi

I’ve seen this chicken-and-egg question debated endlessly, but for me it’s ultimately pointless and I didn’t mean to take a position on it: people, money, and policies go round and round nonstop between US/UK/IL; for practical purposes it’s a single entity. One might observe though that, say, the “White Helmets” chemical division of al-Qaeda was given a heroes’ welcome in the UK (as well as in Germany and Canada), while of course neither the US nor Israel would be so stupid to let those dangerous people in. And needless to say, nobody in the “lower” countries would be so impudent to demand that those two share in the burden–one rule for the masters, another rule for the cattle.

Omega

I agree that it’s one entity but there should be no debate to those who know the intricacies of history: Venice became the British Empire throughly a shift of capital in the same way the British Empire became the Anglo-American Empire throughly a similar process. Israel is a tentacle.

Xoli Xoli

NATO cant be trusted historically so dont waist time dealing with this traitors.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

EU IS USELESS!!!
