Zarif slams EU’s dispute mechanism as ‘a strategic mistake’

On Tuesday, the three European signatories to the Iran deal — France, Britain and Germany — formally triggered the dispute mechanism, which accuses Iran of violating the agreement and could lead to the restoration of the anti-Iran UN sanctions that had been lifted by the JCPOA.

Zarif urges E3 to stop 20 months of bowing to US diktat

Tehran has particularly been disappointed with the European trio’s failure to protect its business interests under the deal after the United States‘ withdrawal.

After patiently watching for more than a year and seeing no clear action from the other signatories of the nuclear deal, Iran invoked Articles 26 and 36 of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to let go of some of the limitations put on its nuclear work.

Maas und Zarif: Um die Wette heucheln in Teheran

(10.06.2019)

Anstatt die Sanktionen der U.S.-Regierung nach deren einseitiger Aufkündigung des internationalen Atomabkommens (JCPOA) endlich effektiv zu umgehen, haben die Regierungen im Iran und in Deutschland die dafür notwendigen Finanzgesellschaften immer noch nicht umgesetzt.

Am 24. September letzten Jahres versprachen die Regierungen von Russland, China, Großbritannien, Frankreich, Deutschland, sowie die „Europäische Union“, auf einem Treffen der Außenminister und der E.U.-Außenbeauftragten Federica Mogherini am 24. September in New York dem Iran die Aufsetzung einer Finanzgesellschaft („Special Purpose Vehicle“), welche die durch den Vertragsbruch der U.S.A. und deren einseitigen Sanktionen verursachten finanziellen Verluste für Vertragspartner mit dem Iran (Importeure, Exporteure, Konzerne, etc, etc) auffangen solle.

Geschehen ist bis heute effektiv nichts. Die mittlerweile „INSTEX“ („Instrument in Support of Trade Exchange“) getaufte Finanzgesellschaft ist immer noch nicht arbeits-, also zahlungsfähig (wir berichteten bereits).

Heute nun stand Außenminister Heiko Maas schon wieder da, diesmal in Teheran, und redete sich heraus. Man arbeite „sehr intensiv an der Umsetzung“ von INSTEX, so Maas.

Qatar foreign minister to visit Iran

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif held talks in Tehran on Saturday with his Qatari counterpart Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, according to the official IRNA news agency.
The Qatari minister is expected to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during the visit.

03.01.2020 - 09:45 [ Javad Zarif, Foreign Minister of Islamic Republic of Iran / Twitter ]

The US‘ act of international terrorism, targeting & assassinating General Soleimani—THE most effective force fighting Daesh (ISIS), Al Nusrah, Al Qaeda et al—is extremely dangerous & a foolish escalation. The US bears responsibility for all consequences of its rogue adventurism.

Wann kaufen Russland, China, Frankreich, Deutschland, Großbritannien dem Iran endlich das angereicherte Uran ab?

(05.07.2019)

Im Mai verhängten die U.S.A. Sanktionen auch gegen den Kauf von angereichertem Uran aus dem Iran. Zweck dieses zynischen Schachzugs war den Iran dazu zu zwingen das internationale Atomabkommen (J.C.P.O.A.) nicht mehr einhalten zu können, um ihm dann dessen Bruch vorzuwerfen, nachdem man es in Washington selbst gebrochen hatte (was von Anfang an durch einen Trick folgenlos möglich war).

Anstatt nun auf die in Washington erklärten einseitigen Sanktionen der Trump Administration zu pfeifen und dem Iran das angereicherte Uran einfach abzukaufen bzw gegen gebrauchsfähiges Uran für dessen Atomkraftwerke einzutauschen – wie es das Atomabkommen vorsieht – tun nun die Regierungen in Moskau, Peking, Paris, Berlin und London wie üblich wieder einmal nichts, sitzen rum und erzählen Dreck daher.

(…)

Was nun die verbleibenden Vertragspartner des Atomabkommens an Zynismus und Heuchelei aufbieten, bringt die Regierung Rohani in Teheran wieder mal an Unfähigkeit und Verantwortungslosigkeit auf.

Anstatt das angereicherte Uran einfach zu entsorgen, die finanziellen Verluste in Kauft zu nehmen und eine einfache Schlagzeile in Form einer Presseerklärung zuwege zu bringen, die da lautet

„Hallo Russland, China, Frankreich, Deutschland, Großbritannien: Kauft uns endlich das angereicherte Uran ab oder tauscht es wie vertraglich vereinbart gegen gebrauchsfähiges für unsere Energieversorgung!“

sondert man in Teheran sinnlose und kontraproduktive „Ultimaten“ ab, ohne der Weltöffentkichkeit zu erklären worum es überhaupt geht und feilscht stattdessen schmierig nach irgendwelchen Öl-Deals wie der hinterletzte Teppichhändler.

Zarif to visit Russia on Monday

Israel today tested a nuke-missile, aimed at Iran. E3 & US never complain about the only nuclear arsenal in West Asia—armed with missiles actually DESIGNED to be capable of carrying nukes—but has fits of apoplexy over our conventional & defensive ones.

Iran warns that small but growing U.S. naval coalition in Strait of Hormuz raises the „risk of combustion“

After intense negotiations with Iranian authorities, CBS News was given rare access to Iranian-controlled waters in the Strait — one of the most volatile transit routes for the world’s oil supply.

About 14 tankers carry crude through the Strait every single day; a combined cargo value of $1.3 billion. It’s a lot of money, and there’s a lot of vested interest in ensuring the flow of tankers continues unimpeded.
