What Makes US Reluctant to Solve Iran’s Nuclear Problem?

Another meeting of the «big six» with Iran is drawing near. Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi announced that the next round of talks on the country's nuclear program would be held in Geneva on December 17 to include direct contacts with the US delegation... The US-Iran contradictions constitute the main hindrance on the way to finding a solution to Iranian nuclear program. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a statement saying that Israel played a crucial role in torpedoing the peaceful settlement. This is just one of the reasons why the United States is not ready for productive result of the talks. There are other reasons as well...

West Cynically Plays For More Time to Deny Iran

After a full year of tortuous negotiations, the P5+1 group and Iran have now extended the nuclear talks for another six months. The move comes after foreign ministers from the US, Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and Iran failed this week to conclude a final deal in Vienna on the long-running nuclear dispute... Western chatter about «complex issues» is but a cynical cover for justifying continuing Western hegemonic dictates and denying Iran its legitimate national rights. The only thing complex, it seems, is how the West can keep spinning this crisis beyond any rational, moral or legal justification.

Nuclear Security and President Obama

Russia skipped preparatory meetings informing that it no longer planned to participate in the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit... Russia is the only state in possession of nuclear capability comparable to that of the United States. Its participation is crucial for the success of efforts to enhance nuclear security. By refusing to take part in the 2016 event to be held in the United States Russia strikes a telling blow against Washington. What prompted it to do so? The problem has two aspects – one is generally of political nature while the other is related to nuclear security...

Iran Nuclear Program Talks: Will it Ever Result in Final Agreement?

...The Obama administration believes that Iran should make peace with America and distance itself from Russia. Until now Tehran has not made anything to substantiate such hopes. Just remember the recent statements criticizing the United States and Great Britain made by Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei. He accused these states of being behind the emergence of the Islamic State and the general instability in the Middle East. According to him, Great Britain is a «satanic state» which together with the United States and Israel works to deepen divisions between Shia and Sunni Muslims...

Forget about Compromises, it’s Capitulation that US Wants from Iran

July 20 did not happen to be the date of Iran’s nuclear problem’s final settlement. The Iran’s talks with the «big 6» (5 United Nations Security Council members and Germany) are prolonged till November 24... The break itself does not solve any problems. A year will have passed since the parties adopted in Geneva a joint plan of action to guarantee that the Iranian nuclear program is used only for peaceful purposes in exchange for lifting international sanctions from the Islamic Republic. But the stances may drastically change. The talks may end up without any result... Nothing new in the US foreign policy thinking. If there is a dialogue, then it is conducted from the position of strength, direct dictate and threats. The widely publicized diplomatic efforts of President Obama aimed at putting an end to confrontation with Tehran still pursue the very same goal – it’s nor a compromise that is expected from Tehran, but rather complete capitulation.

Europe Has No Intention to Clean Out Augean Stables Left by Kiev

Like in a wave of magic wand European media stopped intimidating people with the threat coming from the East as the presidential election in Ukraine wound up. The threat looked especially ominous at the time Europe marks the 100th anniversary since the start of World War I... Chancellor Angela Merkel opened a major exhibition marking the centenary of the First World War in Berlin on May 28. In her speech there she avoided mentioning the rise of tension in the heart of Europe. The European elite have other headaches than the after-Maidan Ukraine. This is the time of redrawing the Brussels political landscape and it’s much more important than cleaning out the Poroshenko Augean Stables...

Behind the Scenes of the Geneva Accord with Iran

...Not only in Israel, but among Arab allies of the U.S., the belief that America is no longer a reliable partner in the Middle East is gaining momentum. After the failures of American plans in Iraq and Afghanistan, the countries of the region have reason to doubt the ability of the U.S. to guarantee a predictable outcome in the Middle East. Now it is unclear how the situation in Egypt will play out, what awaits the region in connection with the nascent revival of relations between America and Iran, how Saudi Arabia will react, whether Turkey will be satisfied with its secondary role, and, most importantly, how to prevent Syria from becoming an «Arab Afghanistan»...

The French Barrier to Nuclear Talks with Iran

At the Geneva talks between six world powers and Iran, mediators managed to narrow the circle of differences and highlight the issues to be resolved during the next round of talks on 20 November. Both sides are hoping to find a way out of the negotiation deadlock that has existed for the last ten years, but differences in the positions of Western allies have unexpectedly become an obstacle to compromise. France has not given its support to the other members of the six nations, announcing that Iran’s proposals do not rule out their development of nuclear weapons... Saudi Arabia is also calling on the six world powers not to believe Iran’s promises, blackmailing negotiators with threats to buy nuclear weapons in Pakistan...

US Sanctions and Iranian Nuclear Program

The next round of Geneva talks between Tehran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany – the group of six powers (the P5 + 1 group) – has been launched in Geneva on November 7-8... Tehran sees the uplifting of sanctions as the first step on the way of tackling the nuclear problem while the economic damage is estimated to be 3-5 billion dollars per month. There are four United Nations Security Council resolutions in force which impose sanctions against Iran. Besides, there are sanctions in effect that have been imposed unilaterally by the United States, the step to be followed by the European Union. Russia finds these measures illegitimate and damaging to the negotiation process... In recent days a number of leading Jewish groups, including AIPAC, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and the Jewish Federations of North America, have reiterated support for advancing through Congress new and enhanced Iran sanctions...

Iranian Nuclear Problem: Does it Have Solution?

...The next round of Geneva talks devoted to the Iran’s nuclear program is slated to take place on October 15-16... It is expected that Tehran will agree to stop the uranium enrichment at 20%, because, as the Iranians admit themselves, what they have in storage already exceeds the national requirements... It is also expected Iran will agree to more thorough and comprehensive inspections by the inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency in comparison with the checks the IAEA experts have conducted until recently. Talking about the prospects for the closure of Fordu uranium enrichment facility, this concession is excluded: it goes beyond the limits of what is acceptable and would send a wrong message to demonstrate that Iran admits it has suffered a defeat instead of sticking to more flexible diplomacy...

Ending the Cold War on Cuba? From the Freezer to the Chiller

As US President Barack Obama announced his surprise «historic» bid to normalise relations with Cuba this week, the New York Times swooned with glowing news. ‘US to Restore Full Relations With Cuba, Erasing a Last Trace of Cold War Hostility’ was how its top headline put it. Welcoming the development, the American «newspaper of record» said Obama vowed to «cut loose the shackles of the past» and to «sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War». But, purple prose aside, the hard detail is that the ongoing illegal American embargo on Cuba will stay in place. Moreover, the move comes as Washington slaps on more sanctions against Russia and unleashes new sanctions on Venezuela...
