…from PressTV, Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: Tomorrow will we know if the JCPOA will continue to go nowhere. This admonition from Iran in the title, that it will not get down in the weeds with the US on some kind of a step by step process of getting back in, where the US wants to create a platform for ‘improving’ the agreement, a euphamism for renegotiating it.

The political party now in power in Iran is not about to make a fool of itself by accepting such a scheme. Biden also does not want to make his approach a deal killer, as the Republicans will exploit it any way they can, while they try to wash off the Trump stink, which might not be possible.

If no deal is made tomorrow, then Iran will move onto the next step of cranking up its nuclear operations to the next stage, following the step by step process it has since Trump broke the deal, to give the US time to see the error of their ways.

The last thing Biden wants to get tagged with is ‘following in Trump’s shoes’ by staying out of the deal via offering Iran everything but full US compliance with the terms of the agreement.

I have no idea what Biden will do; and he is possibly waiting to get his last intel reports before authorizing an offer that the US negotiator is carrying. We do not have long to wait… Jim W. Dean ]

The Iranian culture has been around for along time, and is not about to be regime changed any time soon

First published … April 04, 2021

The United States has no other choice but to remove all anti-Iran sanctions in a verifiable way, an informed source close to the Iranian negotiating team told Press TV ahead of Tuesday talks in Vienna over the 2015 nuclear deal.

The source said Washington’s response to Iran’s unilateral commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is nothing but a unilateral move to remove all the sanctions.

“Tehran will not accept any outcome of the Vienna meeting other than the removal of all sanctions,” the source said on Monday night.

The source said the Iranian team’s agenda in the Vienna talks is clear. “Iran will start its measures to return to JCPOA commitments only after the removal of all US sanctions and verifying it.”

“Robert Malley will have to leave Vienna empty-handed if the Tuesday meeting would result in anything other than the removal of all US sanctions,” the source added, referring to the US president’s special envoy for Iran who is expected to attend the Vienna talks.

The comments came as Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator Seyyed Abbas Araqchi has arrived in the Austrian capital for talks with the P4+1 (Russia, China, Britain, France, and Germany) on the US return to the 2015 nuclear deal, which was abandoned by the former US president in 2018.

“The agenda of this [joint] commission meeting is the removal of all US cruel sanctions against Iran, and in other words, clarification of how parties [to the deal] should fulfill their commitments,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said at his weekly press briefing on Monday.

“The path is clear. All US sanctions [against Iran] must be removed at once. Then [this measure] must be verified [by Tehran] and only then, the Islamic Republic will take its step [to return to full commitments under the nculear deal],” the Iranian spokesman said.

“In other words, we have only one step and not step-by-step [lifting of sanctions], and this one step includes the lifting of all sanctions imposed by the United States. In return, Iran will be ready to reverse its remedial measures, which were taken because of the opposite sides’ violation of the treaty,” Khatibzadeh said.

He added that the Tuesday meeting in Vienna is no different from previous sessions of the Joint Commission of the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and is just a periodical meeting between Iran and the P4+1 similar to those held in the past months.

Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump, adopted a policy of “maximum pressure” against Tehran after the withdrawal, escalating tensions with Iran and drawing strong criticism from the other signatories of the accord.

Iran was patient for one year. But with no palpable shift in circumstances, Tehran began a gradual process of reducing its nuclear undertakings. The decision was taken as Iran’s right under Article 36 of the JCPOA.

  1. The picture above shows what remains of Takht-e-Jamshid (Persepolis). Why did Alexander the grade destroy this city? Because he was jealous and could not bear the thought of the Persian Empire to be more civilized and more magnificent than his. I have been to Shiraz and seen Persepolis, its an amazing feeling when you touch the stones which were put in place thousands of years ago. When you go to Iran, first thing you see is a polite, well-mannered and friendly people – a different culture altogether… and they are very smart and good artists too .. their food is 100% organic and healthy. So why does US want to destroy Iran and offer it on the altar of the Talmudic devil worshipers? The answer to your problems is not Iran but Israel! They’re running your country to the ground and using you to expand their own horizons.. when will you understand?

    • I think most everyone who reads and understands this website knows the score. And they’re probably quite a few more who know the score without even being aware of VT. But not nearly enough to reach critical mass. And with the level of censorship riding herd now on the distribution of critical information, when or if critical mass is ever reached, is anyone’s guess.

  2. We’ve been driven into every war of this century by the false-flag attacks on 9/11. Those wars were not the result of carful deliberation by all parties involved. Israel nuked us on 9/11 and got away with it. A redo, this time blamed on Iran, coming right up, folks.

  3. “The common-space of exchange in which information circulates is a dialogue of listening to and telling stories about the world, each of which impacts the other, just as the acts of both selling and buying can alter the presumptive objective value of a given share in a stock exchange”. Quote from the book Imperial Secrets – Remapping the Mind of Empire (2008)
    Reality construction by way of the image, the imagined, the imaginary, facilitating the imposition of the same system of exchange everywhere, a gridwork of electronic capital, on an abstract ball of the mind.
    Has the source of the information gained an aura of specialness making the management of information become the preferred patterns of a neo-conservative neo-Marxist imperial administration that segues any discussion into that of victimhood?
    What about the value of the intelligence provided? Is it any information that influences policy decisions? Is it strictly secret information? If its secret is that because of its content or because of the way in which it was collected?
    Sound impacts on matter. Will becomes manifest in arrangements of “mass-energy relations” with “intelligence” denoting its knowing agent, aimed at performing three principal functions: description, explanation and prediction”, in short “Total Information Awareness”.
    If it becomes possible to know all the necessary information about a system at a given time, the conditions prevailing at some later time can be accurately predicted.

    • It seems to me the bottom line is the intent, or willingness to seek peace.
      If peace is what is truly desired on both sides, then truth will naturally facilitate it
      But if ulterior motives are the real objective of either, or both sides, then deception and duplicity will naturally facilitate chaos.

  4. There is an election coming up for Iran soon. The Liberals/westernized government who are currently in power have their entire future staked on the outcome of these negotiations, as they are the ones pushing for it. They’re very manipulative and are fully supported by the west. They, along with the Biden administration are going to try to give an impression of positive outcome from these talks, just to string along the country till the election, hoping the illusion is enough to get the Iranians to vote for these westernized reformists again. Hopefully, the Iranian people have gotten smart enough to not fall for the same trap for the third time, as they did for the last 2 elections.
