Israeli Attempts To Undermine Iranian Nuclear Deal May Lead To New Round Of Escalation In Region

Donate

On April 30, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a press-conference accusing Iran of having a secret program to produce nuclear weapons. The move was the recent event in a series of Israeli attempts to undermine the Iran nuclear deal or to assist the current US administration in increasing the pressure on Iran.

The US welcomed the Israeli announcement, saying that Tel Aviv had uncovered “new and compelling details” about Tehran’s efforts to develop “missile-deliverable nuclear weapons”.

The White House stated on April 30:

“The United States has long known Iran had a robust, clandestine nuclear-weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people.”

It should be noted that US President Donald Trump is a strong critic of the Iran nuclear deal and has repeatedly promised to abort and review it.

Iran rejected Israeli’s accusations and said that it will not re-negotiate the deal.

“Iran stands firm in the face of futile attempts at bullying,” the country’s minister of foreign affairs Javad Zarif said in a recorded message on May 3. “If the US continues to violate the agreement, or if it withdraws altogether, we will exercise our right to respond in a manner of our choosing.”

Earlier, Iranian spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Bahram Ghasemi described Netanyahu as an “infamous liar who has had nothing to offer except lies and deceits”.

European leaders urged Trump to stick with the nuclear accord saying that it presents the only viable option available to the international community. The leaders of the UK, France and Germany have agreed to defend the Iran nuclear deal while they work out a way to taking more concessions out of Tehran.

On May 2, speaking to reporters in Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Iran’s missile program and its political influence in Syria needed to be discussed, adding that this was a widespread position in the European Union.

“We will continue with our argumentation, namely keeping the JCPOA (nuclear deal) plus expansion of the negotiating framework,” Merkel said.

On April 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a telephone conversation focused on the Iranian nuclaer deal, the Kremlin press service reported.

“Vladimir Putin reiterated Russia’s position that the JCPOA, which has a paramount importance in terms of international stability and security, must be strictly observed by all its signatories,” the Kremlin said.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that all sides should continue to uphold the Iran nuclear agreement and recalled that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has said many times Iran is in compliance with the deal:

“The JCPOA put in place the strictest monitoring and verification measures on the Iranian nuclear programme. What is imperative is for all relevant parties to bear in mind the general and long-term picture and continue to earnestly implement and safeguard the JCPOA.”

By May 12, US President Trump has promised to decide whether the US will withdraw from the Iran deal or not. If yes, this measure will lead to re-imposing of a full package of the US economic sanctions against Iran. Thus, it will be senseless for Iran to adhere the restrictions imposed by the deal.

The Trump administration can also make an attempt to re-negotiate the deal to impose new terms and conditions that Teheran has to fulfil. Any of these scenarios will lead to a new round of the escalation in the region.

    Why wouldn’t Iran build a clandestine bomb? I would if I were them, and Israel has a clandestine nuclear program.

      I would too if I were them, but then again Iran is not North Korea. The Kims don’t give squat about ordinary North Koreans suffering from sanctions or what they think. The whole country is on perpetual starvation already. Iran is a lot more democratic. It has a functional democracy that even its religious leaders have to take into account. Most Iranians do care about international sanctions. Theirs is a functional economy that is vulnerable to sanctions. Iranians want jobs and a slice of the good life a hell of a lot more then nukes. Hell, most want to get rid of their religious leaders as well. As such Iran’s leaders cannot be as ruthless as the Kims and have to take Iranian public opinion into mind.

        Kims don’t give squat…???
        Your knowledge of Kims’ role in N Korea and its history is sadly lacking here.

      Iran wasn’t trying to make a bomb.
      The whole bomb BS story comes out of US/Israel.
      Iran needed new fuel rods for its reactor. Iran did a deal with France and they built a fuel rod recycling plant in France. The idea was that the whole world could see that it was for peaceful purposes. The US/Israel pressured France not to honour the agreement.
      Then Iran tried sending fuel rods to Argentina to be recycled, the US seized the rods.
      Iran stated that if the US would not allow Iran to buy and recycle fuel rods, they would enrich Uranium and make their own fuel rods. US/Israel laughed, no way could Iran enrich Uranium, only white countries can do that clever stuff.

      So who’s laughing now.

      Israel is not technologically advanced enough to enrich Uranium, Israel’s nukes are made with American enriched Uranium, but the Iranians are advanced enough to do it.
      Nothing angers a master race type nation(Israel) more than .for the ni99ers up the road being smarter than them.

      Nukes are a defensive weapon, a way of discouraging an invader.
      Iran has other ways of discouraging invasion that are just as effective, and reduce the risk of Iran being nuked by the US/Israel.

    Iran, stick to your guns. these people , the Anglo-Zionists mean you harm. The time for talk is over. Let them take the burden of withdrawal from you. Then you too scrap the deal and start accelerating Iran’s integration with powerhouses China and Russia. Iran , also be wary of India, as the nationalistic Hindu party, a lot like Zionists themselves, with Israel occupying Palestine, and India occupying Kashmir, coincidently, the two, India and Israel are in love . They share contempt and hatred for all things Islamic, they have weapons deals and cooperate on various areas detrimental to the region. They even supplied Israel with launch pads for Israeli missiles to take out Pakistan’s (Muslim) nuclear arsenal on a first strike.

    Benjamin Mileikowsky — aka Netanyahu — is a walking, talking war crime awaiting justice.

    @BorisJohnson
    I am an Israeli Assmuncher, Iran’s past nuclear weapons research shows why we need War with Iran. Never trust me and verification always a bare necessity, Skripal was a just a little joke April Fool’s day, my bad…allowing @aipacorg unprecedented rear entry access. Need to keep Bombing Syria and it’s Civilians for a bigger Israel. Our Headchopper-Mercanaries are not doing so great at the moment & we need to build us a new Headchopper-Army to take account of US & allies’ concerns about winning this war https://bit.ly/2I3LkxX

    Zionist satanic warmongering scumbags ,their deals are only designed to disarm and then destroy, eg, Iraq, Libya ,The north Koreans will never give up their nuclear weapons, why should they?

  • Sinbad2

    The agreement that is top secret, nobody is allowed to know what is in the agreement.

    I don’t think Trump will break the agreement, because Iran might publish the details of the agreement.

  • Ewan

    We will either see the end of the White Colonial Settler project in the Middle East (Israel) or the destruction of the entire region and its peoples.
    My money is on you Iran.
