How the US Is Pressing Iran to Breach the Nuclear Deal
May 9, 2019

363 days ago the U.S. left the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the ‘nuclear deal’ with Iran, and reintroduced sanctions against trade with Iran. When the U.S. reintroduced sanctions on Iran it provided sanction ‘wavers’ for some customers of Iranian oil. Two weeks ago the extremists in the Trump administration won out and the those waivers were eliminated. Some of Iran’s customers, Iraq, Turkey and China, will continue to buy Iranian oil and will face U.S. sanctions.

Pakistan and Decisive Storm in Yemen
April 14, 2015

Looks like Islamabad tries to dodge taking an active part in the military operation against Yemen. Pakistani Prime Minister Navaz Sharif owes Saudi Arabia. It saved his life and let his clan prosper. Thanks to kingdom’s interference he was exiled from the country instead of facing the death sentence handed down by the country’s Supreme Court in 2001. Sharif was sheltered by Saudi Arabia after the coup that overthrew him in 1999. The benevolent attitude of kingdom’s ruling circles contributed to success of his family business. Now Riyadh is irritated by the fact that personal close relationship with the Prime Minister does not guarantee Pakistan’s participation in the operation against Yemen…

Will «Big Six» Lose Historic Opportunity to Close Iran’s Nuclear Dossier?
March 25, 2015

The next round of talks on Iran’s nuclear program is scheduled on March 26 – the day US State Secretary John Kerry is to meet his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif in Lausanne, Switzerland. The chances for reaching an agreement till the end of March are bleak… On March 23, 367 House lawmakers signed an open letter to President Barack Obama warning him that any nuclear deal with Tehran will effectively require congressional approval for implementation to prevent any chance of going nuclear… America wants the regional influence of Iran weakened. Actually, that’s what Americans have been doing since the revolution in Iran took place 36 years ago. Israel and Saudi Arabia remain to be the leading regional allies of United States. They represent the main forces opposing the agreement between P5+1 and Tehran. With sanctions lifted and international isolation ended, Iran becomes a regional superpower…

Obama’s Iran Policy Close to Failure
March 11, 2015

The next round of talks on Iran’s nuclear program is scheduled on March 15-20 with final agreement to be reached till March 24. This is a very dubious prospect… French President Francois Hollande openly says France does not approve the unilateral concessions that, to his mind, Washington is ready to make. According to Hollande, the number of centrifuges to be used by Iran for uranium enrichment under the US version of the agreement is «unacceptable»… The ten-year long effort may end up in deadlock…

Netanyahu Attacks Iran in US Congress: Deceitful Show
March 9, 2015

…Before getting on the plane for Washington, Mr. Netanyahu described his trip as a «fateful and even historic mission». According to him, his dramatic address to the U.S. Congress at what he said was a «fateful» crossroads of history». In his first address to Congress in 1996, he warned that an atomic Iran would «presage catastrophic consequences, not only for my country, and not only for the Middle East, but for all mankind». Little has changed since those days. 

Geneva-2: Look from Tehran
February 1, 2014

As is known, the United States’ policy on Iranian nuclear program has come under harsh criticism on the part of Saudi Arabia and Israel. It was harsh enough to make John Kerry say on NBC's «Meet the Press», «We are not blind, and I don't think we're stupid. I think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe». Kerry assures that the most serious, capable and competent people in the US government with great experience of dealing with Iran tackle the nuclear program issue. Is it so? By the end of the summer in 2013 the US experts on Iran pushed the United States to the brink of unleashing a perilous military adventure against Syria…
