Iranian authorities rejected “compromise” in in nuclear talks with world powers.
Iranian diplomatic missionaries have denied claims that Tehran will bend its policy during indirect talks with Washington. The ongoing negotiations aimed at restoring the country’s 2015 nuclear agreement with foreign powers.
Iranian supreme leader has had no reference to the concession following the meeting with Qatari emir, according to an Iranian diplomatic apparatus spokesperson. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani visited Ayatollah Khamenei earlier in May in the Iranian capital.
Iran has always stated that the discussions must lead to outcomes, not squander time, Iranian leader emphasized during his talks with the emir. He also stated that the American authorities are aware of their obligations in this respect. “The ball is in the US court, which must make wise political decisions to fulfill its obligations,” Khatibzadeh asserted.
The remarks follow Qatar’s foreign minister’s assertions that “Iranian leadership” has signaled willingness to compromise on the Iranian nuclear issue. The German daily Handelsblatt suggested the view from Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani’s in recent days.
Khatibzadeh also referred to a potential mistranslation from the German daily column.
On Sunday, Qatar’s foreign ministry stated that the minister was misinterpreted on his “compromise” remarks.
During a news appearance in Berlin earlier this week, Sheikh Tamim voiced hope about the future of the JCPOA. He expressed optimism that Iran and the United States can achieve a resolution on the nuclear agreement, and reaffirmed Qatar’s willingness to help.
Doha is extremely hopeful about development in nuclear discussions to promote security and stability in the region, according to a representative for Qatar’s foreign affairs ministry. “We hope an agreement that satisfies all parties and guarantees Iran’s right to peaceful use of nuclear energy will be reached as soon as possible,” al-Ansari said.
Iranian nuclear deal has been stuck in limbo since two months ago following a series of disputes. A modest but significant series of problems have eluded the two parties. One of the issues was the categorization of Iran’s IRGC forces as a “terrorist” organization. by the United States.
Washington unilaterally pulled out of the agreement four years ago, and started imposing heavy sanctions on Iran. In an attempt to expedite the discussions, the EU coordinator for the negotiations went to Tehran earlier in May.
Iranian foreign minister and the European foreign policy leader, had a phone conversations a few days ago to review the status of the discussions. “Important to get going. The more we wait the more difficult it becomes to conclude negotiations.,” Borrell posted on Twitter after the talk.
Iranian insistence on the rejection of any compromise occurs while a new report by Israeli sources indicated that a bad deal would secure Israeli interests far more than ‘no deal’. According to unidentified intelligence sources quoted by an Israeli news agency, failing to revive the JCPOA could lead to higher nuclear threat for Tel Aviv and its allies.
Tehran is also only months away from reaching 90% Uranium, fit for producing nuclear weapon. According to the Jerusalem post, Iran is capable of producing not one, but up to four nuclear warheads.
Israeli officials like the incumbent PM and his predecessor, Benjamin Netanyahu, have spoken out against a nuclear agreement with Tehran. There are sections within Israel’s defense and intelligence that believe that no agreement is considerably riskier than a terrible one.
Informed about the status quo, Iranian officials keep up with their policy of no compromise in the talks. Local political considerations in Israel may have directed their approach during the years.
