Western media: Europe again failed talks with Iran on nuclear program


Negotiations on the renewal of the nuclear deal with Iran, which are being held in Vienna by European countries, are still very difficult. European politicians are already declaring their disappointment with the course of the negotiation process, as time is running out, and there have not been any definite results.

The Frankfurter Allgemeine believes that European leaders are trying to convince the world that negotiations with the Iranian authorities are bringing some results. But so far the current situation is rather a refutation of this statement. As much as the Europeans would like to admit the failure of the talks with the Iranian leadership, reality dictates its own rules.

However, there is one interesting point. Rafael Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), recently visited Iran. His trip was dedicated to the cameras that the IAEA uses to monitor the situation at Iran's nuclear facilities. Earlier, Tehran banned IAEA inspectors from carrying out maintenance of cameras at the facility in Karaj. Iranian media said the cameras were destroyed as a result of Israeli sabotage.

However, then the Iranian leadership still gave Grossi a magnificent welcome and gave permission to replace the cameras. This is a small concession, but in Europe it was seen as a big victory. Although what is the point of such a victory? The media from the cameras are stored in Iran and no one can access them without the permission of the Iranian authorities. Obstructing full surveillance of nuclear facilities, in turn, prevents a return to the 2015 nuclear deal. Indeed, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the nuclear deal assumed the IAEA had access to all of Iran's nuclear facilities.

After the US withdrawn from the nuclear deal in 2018, the situation has changed. Iran has returned to work on enriching uranium at a level higher than that provided for by the nuclear deal, and also imposed restrictions on the IAEA to monitor its nuclear facilities. Now Europe is trying in vain to return the situation to the state of 2015, but it does it badly, and one of the reasons is the coming to power in Iran of supporters of a tougher course in relations with the West.

The second round of talks in Vienna demonstrated this: the Iranian delegation suddenly decided to leave for their homeland for consultations. The European representatives expressed their disappointment, since it is clear that the next negotiations, if they take place, will not take place soon enough. The IAEA still does not have full access to Iran's nuclear facilities.

No matter how hard the European leaders are trying to present the deal with Iran as almost a fait accompli, in reality it is still very early to talk about any of its prospects.

    Let Europe ..... sorry, European officials will say a big sincere thanks to their master, who, by withdrawing from the deal with Iran, drove all the good Western undertakings into the ass. Lately, the West blames everyone for everything, but not itself. lol And this is, to put it mildly, a destructive approach. Your opponent will never talk to you if you a priori consider your Wishlist to be the most important. And this is the idea of ​​a fix of Western "amateurs" to teach the lives of others.
    Personally, Europolitics causes a gag reflex and a disgust from their snobbery ... request

    What to negotiate about? Iran is a malicious violator, it enriches beyond what it should be, it does not let the IAEA ... The United States withdrew from the deal, but all the others did not, that is, the deal remained in effect even after the American withdrawal. Iran violated it and should be punished for it.

      lolche? the main thing here is that the states came out, without them that agreement does not matter at all.
      such as you will justify any Western meanness.
      at first, the states withdrew from the open skies treaty, but the Russians were offered to stay there, they say the Russians would not fly over the states, but the allies of the mattresses would fly over the Russians (and the Russians offered to give guarantees that the allies would not transfer data to the mattresses, and then Russia would not come out from the contract, but no one wanted to give a guarantee? do not explain why?). and it is clear that the Russians withdrew from the treaty and immediately the whole western rag-tag and your kind began to whine that Russia is mean and aggressive, withdrew from the democratic treaty.
      and recall how the withdrawal from the INF Treaty developed? such as you wrote that the reason is in the Russian. no evidence was given, because they are very secret. but withdrew from the treaty, and after that the Russians also left the treaty (does it make sense to remain in the treaty in which there are no more participants?), so what? it poured through the pipes again, vile and aggressive Russia, withdrew from such a wonderful treaty.
      and what do I observe in this article? there were peppers that, in the Persians' kidney, were blamed by the states as the Persians, and not the mattresses. the blue side (on the cards you always designate yourself in blue) again designated the victims of the kidka as guilty.
      gentlemen are such gentlemen ...

        The answer is very simple: theocratic regimes have no right to own nuclear technologies, they have not matured politically. And Russia is the opposite. I do not forgive any meanness of the West, because my soul hurts for the country. But it happens in life that personally the Kremlin maniacs have been fined and personally have to be punished, the country should not suffer for their sins.

          and again the “chosen ones” began to decide who had grown up and who had not.
          These parasites of the board have chosen themselves as a standard for measuring society and personality. forgetting that there is more blood, crimes, betrayals on them than on the rest of the planet combined.
          has Pakistan grown?
          tell who gave them the weapon?
          Has Israel grown? if Che Israel generally put / lay down on everyone and on any moral and legal norms if they do not suit them.
          if the DPRK had no nuclear weapons, it’s not a fact that Grandpa Trump would not have bombed them.
          than the Persians are worse than those whom I mentioned?
          if the Persians have at least some kind of elections, there are a lot of women without a veil, and this is the most secular country of those listed above (in some aspects, more secular than even Israel).
          Well, at the same time then tell about the civilization of the Anglo-Saxons.
          otherwise I am on the way you do not know what these "civilized" people were doing all over the planet.
          but they have nuclear weapons.

            It's simple. Pakistan, too, has not matured, I do not allow it either, as well as the repulsed Juche regime. But Israel is the most secular and pleasant state in the entire Middle East, for it nuclear weapons and aggressive policies are the equalizer of chances. Otherwise, the obscurantist Islamic East will crush Israel in numbers. And that would not be desirable. Despite all the chatter, in fact, the watershed is extremely clear - not on the side of Israel - which means you approve of the Holocaust, or rather, its completion.

              In general, the Holocaust was arranged for the Jews in the most civilized and democratic Europe. There was no scent of Islam there. So whoever is for Israel is against the civilized European states, and for the obscurantist Zionism.

                In general, the Islamic East does not hide its purpose - as it is, it is eager to wipe Israel off the map and kill all, all the remaining Jews. I do not share such aspirations. In addition, the ideological moment: the image of the future. Israel offers a more attractive image - a rich, developed, conscious state, where a mountain stands behind its own ... The Islamic East offers only ruins, mountains of corpses, intolerance and obscurantism. I don't think you will choose the second option. More national politics. I fully approve of the Israeli one, I only dream of a similar Russian policy in Russia. And finally, the most important thing: in politics, the days of chivalry with unbreakable vows, honor, loyalty to the end and other nonsense are long gone. Real politics is a game of interest: in order to prevent great evil from happening, sometimes you should allow small. The biggest evil for Israel is the lost war on its territory. Therefore, it is necessary to allow a little - that is, targeted preemptive strikes against the Arabs. Of course, one cannot do without sacrifice and destruction, but such is the price of peace. Just as I said, so that seas of blood do not happen, you have to resolve the rivers. This is a necessary evil.

                  Here I can probably agree with you. Instead of filling the entire Islamic East with corpses, as Israel wants, it is enough just to destroy this Israeli cancerous opuzol. It will be the lesser evil against the overwhelming population of the world. It is unlikely that at least one other people will worry about the loss of Jews. Everyone will just breathe a sigh of relief.

                  Yes, the entire Middle East wants to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth so much that the richest monarchies of the BV such as the Saudis and the UAE have become Israel's allies.

              Israel is the most secular and pleasant state
              Don't confuse communication between people and government policy. You may not have noticed, but in the universe there are only 2 secular and pleasant states with which the Russian Foreign Ministry does not see any reason to talk, in the light of sheer obstinacy. And this is not Iran, Pakestan or even the Taliban ...

      And what is this rocket with such an impressive fairing in the photo? Maybe someone knows?

      Qased is a three-stage solid-propellant rocket for the output of 10-50 kg loads to LEO.
      The stages are alterations of various military missiles put together.
      First flight - April 22, 2020. Launch of the "military" satellite "Noor" (video camera + transmitter).
      Success declared, no confirmation.

    Who would doubt that there will be no breakthrough until the United States returns to the framework of the canceled treaty and lifts the sanctions. Europe is Europe - a party that does not have complete independence in decision-making. request
    Today one colleague on another thread claimed that everything will be "tip-top" -
    Quote: Aleksandr21
    And regarding the future, see... now sanctions will be lifted from Iran (after negotiations in Vienna), it will become a full-fledged participant in world trade, and money will flow to it in a stormy stream (through the sale of energy resources), i.e. it will begin to develop and can greatly help the Syrian economy and its elites to get through this difficult time. And it goes without saying that the Syrian elites will gravitate more towards Iran than towards us ...
    And it looks like ... the future is postponed indefinitely No.
