Iran shrugs off United States threat of imposing "toughest sanctions"

Iran shrugs off United States threat of imposing

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Mr Pompeo had not demonstrated in his speech how abandoning the deal made the region safer from the threat of nuclear proliferation.

"I think in the end, we will get back to the kind of additions to the JCPOA that we initially envisaged - but it may take a long time", Johnson said on Monday ahead of a G20 foreign ministers summit in Argentina, at which discussions about the nuclear deal are expected to take place.

"That is certainly their decision to make. If they choose not to do so, we will stay hard at this until we achieve the outcomes that I set forward today".

"Our willingness to meet [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Un underscores the Trump administration's commitment to diplomacy to help solve the greatest challenges, even with our staunchest adversaries", said Pompeo. "Are these two not responsible for wasting Iranian lives throughout the Middle East?"

"This is just the beginning". Pompeo essentially demanded Iran's total submission without offering anything in return aside from the hazy prospect of sanctions relief at some future date.

"It must cease its threatening behavior against its neighbors", Pompeo said.

"We will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime".

Maas said he will travel to Washington to talk with Pompeo this week.

It has spread its influence across parts of the Middle East where there are large communities of fellow Shia Muslims, from Iraq to Lebanon. "Our message is very clear: This is a nuclear agreement that works".

Affecting that much change in Iran's behavior may be an uphill battle for the Trump administration, given the lack of support for this new deal from European allies. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has slammed the speech, saying that Tehran would continue its path. "We will track down Iranian operatives and their Hezbollah proxies operating around the world and crush them", said the secretary. The United States, Iran, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China reached the accord after years of hard negotiations. Those demands covered a range of activities, from releasing US citizens arrested in recent years to removing all personnel from Syria and allowing unfettered access to nuclear inspectors to military sites. He didn't specify how he would convince the European allies to go along with the US plan. "This is what Israel is doing", Netanyahu said. He repeated Trump's argument that Iran would have "bigger problems than they've ever had before" if they resume their nuclear program. The strategy will also allow Tehran to blame the United States if the economy deteriorates. The speech was mislabeled as "a new Iran strategy". First, the White House indicated to USA allies that the deal could be saved but never undertook serious efforts to broker a supplemental agreement. But he also strongly condemned President Rouhani, a centrist who won office, in 2013, pledging to engage with the United States. Are they not the most responsible for your economic struggles?

Assessments of the regime's longevity have shifted among Iran experts in Washington over the past six months.

Thousands of Iranians demonstrated in Tehran chanting, "Death to America".

Trump's actions have rallied Iranians around their government.

But the Administration's strategy is also being challenged by those who believe the revolution has failed abysmally. So now the question is, now that the US has abandoned even the pretense of diplomacy, will secondary sanctions work?

If Iran agrees to those demands, he said, the United States would lift sanctions, re-establish diplomatic relations with Tehran and provide it access to technology.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanded sweeping changes that would force Iran effectively to reverse years of its foreign policies. "I just don't think it will happen at the barrel of a gun or in response to USA diktat". It arrested US citizens even as its diplomats were negotiating the nuclear deal. "It's his infantile approach to foreign policy that purports to solve intractable challenges through the application of maximalist pressure".

Through this Iran speech, the Trump administration is again showing its lack of experience. We've gone from a unified front against Iran to a unified front against President Trump's harebrained scheme.One wonders how a future president is going to fix the wreckage of American foreign policy this president will leave behind. And sanctions can only work if truly worldwide.

The Trump administration will have a team of specialists traveling the world, explaining the administration's policy to American allies which, Pompeo said, will eventually get on board with Donald Trump's plan.
