Iraq Sets Up 'Loophole' in US Sanctions to Buy Iranian Power





 Ministry of Oil: Any measure to increase oil production will not be monolithic - Page 3 Bozlar-tower1





By Maya Gebeily
Iraq is establishing a financial "loophole" to continue buying vital gas and electricity from Iran despite US sanctions, AFP has learned, mirroring a European mechanism that came into effect Friday.
The "special purpose vehicle" (SPV) would allow Iraq to pay for imported Iranian energy in Iraqi dinars, which Iran could use to exclusively buy humanitarian goods, three senior Iraqi officials said.
The workaround would allow Baghdad to keep the lights on and avoid shortage-driven protests without triggering US sanctions, as it treads an increasingly precarious tightrope between its two main allies Tehran and Washington.
One senior government official told AFP it was the product of months of talks between Iraqi, Iranian and US officials.
"The Iraqi government will continue to pay Iran for gas by depositing money into a special bank account inside Iraq, in Iraqi dinars," the official said.
"Iran will not be able to withdraw the money, but will be able to use it to purchase goods from outside Iraq."
Iraq has an outstanding bill of around $2 billion for previous gas and electricity purchases, according to Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zangeneh.
A US official told AFP that Washington was aware of the mechanism's creation.
The US embassy in Baghdad declined to comment, while Iran's embassy did not respond to an AFP request.
Two additional high-level Iraqi officials confirmed Baghdad was establishing such an account with US knowledge, but could not say whether payments into the account had begun.
"How else is Iraq supposed to pay what it owes Iran? We have no other choice," the second official said.
Iran's ATM'
To offset its notorious power shortages, Iraq imports around 1,400 MW of electricity and 28 million cubic meters (988 million cubic feet) of gas for power stations from neighboring Iran, which together make up about a third of Iraq's power supply.
That reliance has angered the US, which slapped tough sanctions on Iran last year but has granted Iraq several temporary waivers to keep purchasing Iranian power until October.
The US insists Iraq wean itself off Iranian energy, but Baghdad has said that could take up to four years, during which it would need to keep purchasing at least Iranian gas.
To do so, the central banks of Iran and Iraq agreed in February to create a payment method that steers clear of US sanctions, Iran's state news agency IRNA said, without providing additional details.
That would mean not dealing in US dollars and purchasing only "humanitarian goods" allowed by the US -- like food and medicine.
"We would become Iran's ATM," another Iraqi official told AFP.
According to two of the senior Iraqi officials, Baghdad's SPV would likely be set up at the Trade Bank of Iraq.
The TBI has handled most of the Iraqi government's international transactions since its establishment in the aftermath of the US-led invasion in 2003.
A senior TBI source told AFP the bank had been involved in the negotiations but the account had not yet been created.
"The US Treasury has confidence in the TBI's processes. We are in discussions to reach an agreement, which would be fully within US exemptions," the source said.
'Like a Ledger'
It would effectively be a "loophole" around sanctions, said Ahmed Tabaqchali, senior fellow at the Sulaymaniyah-based Institute of Regional and International Studies.
"It's like a ledger. You record the money paid, and Iran has that much credit in Iraq," Tabaqchali told AFP.
The system would work much like INSTEX, a mechanism recently activated by Britain, Germany and France to trade legitimately with Iran without falling foul of US sanctions.
Still, the system is fraught with political, financial and practical complexities
Iraq's economy relies almost exclusively on oil revenues, paid in dollars, which leaves Baghdad extremely vulnerable to any punitive measures the US could take in response to a violation.
It also remains unclear what exactly Iran could purchase from Iraq as trade is heavily tilted in the other direction.
"Credit would develop in Iran's favour but how would it actually cash it?" said Tabaqchali.
Importing goods from outside Iraq would require a third party willing to take the political and financial risk of such a transaction, he told AFP.
And, ultimately, much of Iraq's transactions with Iran are cash purchases of commercial goods—something US authorities implementing sanctions are unable to monitor.
"Cash is untraceable," said Tabaqchali.

Iran to raise enrichment level as EU barter channel stalls




 Ministry of Oil: Any measure to increase oil production will not be monolithic - Page 3 454787Image1



ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Europe is yet to designate a bank to handle a proposed barter trade system between Iranian and European firms on the eve of a deadline set by President Hassan Rouhani who has threatened Tehran would increase the enrichment of uranium to any level it desires if the Europeans fail to take adequate actions. 

Despite claims that the European trade channel (known as INSTEX) is operational, the head of Special Trade and Finance Institute (STFI) which is the Iranian equivalent of the system, says that the Europeans have not assigned a bank to handle the trade. 

“Right now, our request for the Europeans side is for them to introduce a bank to become the intermediary between the European and Iranian buyers and sellers,” Ali Asghar Nouri the head of STFI said on Saturday. “We have consulted about this but no bank has been introduced to us officially.” 

Nouri elaborated in an interview with Tasnim News on the complexity of the barter trade system and the pre-conditions including banking requirements for the mechanism before it could be activated. 

“In the first phase, we ask some traders who export directly to Europe to use the STFI as a test…in this regard we have spoken to some renowned and experienced exporters and some of them have promised to assist,” Nouri said.

He rejected the idea that the banks are staying away from INSTEX because they are scarred to incur US fines due to the financial and economic sanctions on Iran, instead saying INSTEX is a legal vehicle and if it was not, the Europeans would have floated establishing it.

The liquidity for the deal is another major obstacle as Iranian oil exportation has dwindled to less than 500,000 barrels per day (bpd) since Washington cancelled oil waivers to eight major buyers in May, triggering a strong reaction from Tehran.  

“…in order to provide liquidity, the Europeans must buy our oil so we can deposit the proceeds into this company [STFI] in order to use the proceeds to import,” Nouri detailed. “We emphasized that if Europe cannot buy our oil, there must be a line of credit meaning that Europe will provide [financial] services and in return we pay back the dues from the sale of oil.”

President Hassan Rouhani warned on Wednesday that Tehran would take a dramatic step in suspending its commitment under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions (JCPOA) by raising the level of enrichment of uranium which received strong reactions from the Europeans and United States.

“…we will put aside our commitment in relation to the level of enrichment and we will increase to any level that we wish depending on the needs and our requirements” Rouhani said.  “From July 7, we will return the Arak Reactor to the previous level, to the level that you claimed ‘Was dangerous and could produce plutonium,’ unless you fulfill all your commitments in relation to Arak Reactor.”

On Friday, the United States Mission to International Organizations in Vienna requested a special meeting scheduled for Wednesday of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Board of Governors to discuss the nuclear watchdog’s "concerning report on the Iranian regime's nuclear program."

Iran’s Arak Reactor is permitted under the guidelines of the nuclear deal to be used for non-weaponized nuclear research and is to be monitored by co-signers, in particular the United Kingdom and China.

Since May 2018 when the US withdrew from the JCPOA and re-imposed severe economic sanctions on Tehran, tensions between the two countries have increased and a series of incidents in recent months have brought the two adversaries to the verge of military conflict.

In the latest incident on Thursday, a unit of British Royal Marines seized a supertanker containing 2 million barrels of Iranian oil allegedly heading to Syria which is under European Union sanctions. Iran threatened to retaliate. On Saturday rumors spread that a British tanker had stopped unexpectedly in the Persian Gulf, but Tehran denied the rumors.

Despite the looming deadline as the tension grows the head of Iran’s Special Trade and Finance Institute (STFI) is not sure when the vehicle would become operational.

“During the two months this company has been set up in Tehran, we have tried to complete the prerequisites required for INSTEX and STFI to work together,” Nouri said. “So until such a time that the financial mechanisms and the nature of the exchanges are defined, it is not possible for definite to say when this special financial mechanism will be operational and when services could be provided to the companies in private sector.”

Pompeo Warns Iran of Fresh Sanctions

[size=19]ERBIL - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned Iran of "further isolation and sanctions," following Tehran's attempt to begin the enrichment of uranium "at any level".[/size]
Pompeo's warnings came after the Iranian authorities said on Sunday that Tehran was beginning the enrichment of uranium at any level and with any amount.
"In a few hours, the technical process will come to an end and the enrichment beyond 3.67% will begin," Reuters quoted Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesperson for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation.
"And tomorrow early in the morning, when the IAEA (U.N. nuclear watchdog) takes the sample we would have gone beyond 3.67%."
However, the US' senior official claimed that Iran with nuclear weapons would be more dangerous to the world.
"Iran’s latest expansion of its nuclear program will lead to further isolation and sanctions. Nations should restore the longstanding standard of no enrichment for Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s regime, armed with nuclear weapons, would pose an even greater danger to the world," he said in a statement on Twitter.
Tensions, in this regard, began to rise after US President Donald Trump withdrew from Iran nuclear deal last year.

Rouhani: We left the door of diplomacy completely open




 Ministry of Oil: Any measure to increase oil production will not be monolithic - Page 3 Doc-P-207863-636983787930855575





Follow-up / tomorrow Press:
 
Iranian President Hassan Rowhani stressed that Tehran's goal is the full commitment of all parties to the nuclear agreement and that it has left the door of diplomacy open. 

Rohani said during a meeting with the envoy of the French President, Emmanuel Bonn, on Wednesday, in statements quoted by the agency "Fares", "Iran left the door of diplomacy is fully open and Tehran's goal is to implement all parties to their commitments in the nuclear agreement and to take advantage of the current opportunity to reach what We ask for a nuclear agreement and it is the full implementation of the agreement. "



Today, the United States has again called on Iran to reverse its recent steps to reduce some of its obligations under the agreement on its nuclear program, especially to raise the level of uranium enrichment, and stressed its readiness for dialogue with Tehran without preconditions. 

"There is no reasonable reason for Iran to extend its nuclear program," US Ambassador Jackie Jackie Walcott said in a statement on Wednesday. "There is no other way to read this than a blatant attempt to blackmail the international community to get the money." 

"We call on Iran to abandon its recent nuclear steps and stop any plans for further progress in this matter."



Walcott also called on all IAEA member states to urge Iran to enter into negotiations. "All the members of this organization should urge Iran to enter immediately negotiations for a peaceful and diplomatic solution to the crisis. We will remain ready and waiting for such diplomatic negotiations," she said. 

"We will also remain committed to preventing Iran from obtaining the benefits it sought from its recent provocations," he added. 

Iran announced on Sunday new steps to reduce its commitments to the nuclear agreement of 2015, noting that the doors of diplomacy are still open. 

"We announce that the rate of uranium enrichment has increased to more than 3.6 percent to as much as 5 percent," said Iran's Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behruz Kamalundi. According to the agency "Fars" Iran.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a report last Monday that Iran had exceeded the 3.67 percent set by the agreement on uranium enrichment.

Trump: sanctions on Iran will double dramatically soon

Follow-up / tomorrow Press:
 
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US President Donald Trump has accused Iran of secretly enriching uranium for a long time, warning that US sanctions "will soon increase," coinciding with an emergency UN meeting on Tehran's violation of the nuclear deal.


"Iran has long been secretly enriching uranium, in complete violation of the $ 150 billion deal struck by former Secretary of State John Kerry and the administration of former President Barack Obama," Trump said on Twitter. 

"Remember that this agreement would have passed in a few years," he said. 

Trump's comments came after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced on Wednesday that Iran was enriching uranium 4.5 percent purity despite its nuclear deal with world powers. 

The International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations, has previously said that Iran exceeded the permissible purity of 3.67 percent.

The IAEA, which monitors the implementation of the nuclear deal, said Wednesday that Iran's stockpile of enriched uranium currently stands at 213.5 kg, meaning that it exceeds the limit of 202.8 kg, as well as the IAEA's July 1, 205 Kg. 

For its part, Iran said it would not "back down" its decision to increase uranium enrichment beyond the provisions of the nuclear agreement, on the pretext that it wants to get "full rights" under the agreement, which withdrew from US President Donald Trump last year, The Associated Press.

Mawazine News 



The prospects for an American war against Iran such as the ones it launched on Iraq in 2003 are continuing . The candidate for the post of chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Millie, said that the US administration is not considering the idea of ​​launching a war against Iran like the one it launched on Iraq. 2003. 

He denied Millie, who was nominated by US President, Donald Trump, during a hearing conducted in the armed Services Committee Affairs of the Senate of the Congress to consider his candidacy, that his administration is considering the idea of sending 150 thousand soldiers to Iran, as happened during the war on Iraq.
 
"I prefer not to discuss emergency operations in open meetings, but no, I do not think anyone (in the US administration) is seriously considering anything similar to what you have just described," Milley said in response to a question from Republican Senator Thomas Coton.

"I do not know whether the war with Iran will happen, but its outbreak will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the distribution of the forces responsible for our defense priorities," he said. 

The US military said that Iran had intensified its activities in the recent period, but did not confirm that there is a need for the United States to take additional measures against the Islamic Republic, and said: "I think the time will show whether it is necessary or not. In recent months "

LONDON: Britain said on Friday it would deploy the destroyer HMS Duncan warship to the Gulf to replace HMS Montrose, maintaining a continuous presence there during a time of heightened tension in the region.
Relations between Tehran and the West have been increasingly strained after Britain seized an Iranian tanker in Gibraltar and London said HMS Montrose had to fend off Iranian vessels which sought to block a British-owned tanker passing through the Strait of Hormuz.
“As part of our long-standing presence in the Gulf, HMS Duncan is deploying to the region to ensure we maintain a continuous maritime security presence while HMS Montrose comes off task for pre-planned maintenance and crew change over,” the government said.
“This will ensure that the UK alongside international partners can continue to support freedom of navigation for vessels transiting through this vital shipping.”
Discussions between Britain and the United States on building up their military presence in the Gulf are ongoing, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokeswoman said on Friday amid tensions with Iran.
Britain is not seeking to escalate the situation with Iran, foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said on Friday, as tensions continue between London and Tehran over a seized Iranian tanker and the passage of vessels through the Strait of Hormuz.
"We are reacting to what is happening in a measured and careful way and we are being clear to Iran that we are not seeking to escalate this situation," Jeremy Hunt told Sky News.

Bahrain said on Friday it "strongly condemned" what it called an Iranian attempt to intercept a British tanker in the Gulf, according to a statement from its foreign ministry.
"This hostile action embodies Iran's insistence on threatening security and peace, and harming maritime navigation," the statement said.

Relations between Tehran and the West have been increasingly strained after Britain seized an Iranian tanker in Gibraltar and London said the British Heritage, operated by oil company BP, had been approached in the strait between Iran and the Arabian peninsula.
“We are talking to the US about building on our presence in the face of recent threats to shipping in the area,” May’s spokeswoman said on Friday.

DUBAI:: Iran called on Britain on Friday to immediately release its oil tanker which British Royal Marines seized last week on suspicion that it was breaking European sanctions by taking oil to Syria, a foreign ministry spokesman told state news agency IRNA.


Britain said on Thursday that three Iranian vessels tried to block a British-owned tanker passing through the Strait of Hormuz, which controls the flow of Middle East oil to the world, but backed off when confronted by a Royal Navy warship. Iran denied that its vessels had done any such thing.
Tension between Iran and the West has increased a week after Britain seized the tanker and London said the British Heritage, operated by oil company BP, had been approached in the strait between Iran and the Arabian peninsula.

“Foreign powers should leave the region because Iran and other regional countries are capable of securing the regional security,” Mousavi said.

Follow - up / Tomorrow 's Press: 

criticized the French Foreign Minister, Jean - Yves Odrian, Tehran 's decision to reduce its nuclear agreement. 

Lordian said the move was a reaction to Washington's decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal a year ago.



It's a bad decision, a bad reaction to another bad decision, I mean the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal last year, "he said on the sidelines of the French National Day celebrations. 

Responding to reporters' questions about the risk of a major war in the Middle East, Ludrian said that "the situation is serious and increasing tension could lead to accidents." 

The French minister said that "no one wants war, I have noticed that everyone says they do not want to escalate, not President Rohani, neither President Trump nor the other leaders in the Gulf, but there are signs of escalation that are worrying." 

He continued,

BAGHDAD ( 
Reuters) - EU foreign policy chief Federica Mujerini on Monday called on Iran to comply fully with the nuclear deal and all steps taken outside the nuclear deal could be reversed in the future. 
 "The nuclear deal with Iran is not in good shape, but it is still alive and can not be determined if it is in its final hours," Mugereini told a news conference after a meeting of EU foreign ministers. 
"The financial mechanism between the European Union (EU) will be available for the participation of other countries later, and it called on Iran to return to full compliance with the agreement." 
"The nuclear agreement is not healthy but it is alive," the European Union's foreign policy chief said.
"We hope that the Iranian authorities will understand that we are committed to the full implementation of the nuclear agreement, because it is in the interest of global security, and hope that it will be in its interest to return to full compliance with the agreement," she said.

Iran has launched a devastating attack on Iraq as tensions between Tehran and Washington reach crisis point, according to Express.

The country’s Revolutionary Guard announced on Friday that they had conducted attacks against anti-Iran insurgents operating in Kurdistan, on the Iraqi border. Following Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu's warning that its weapons could strike anywhere, Iran’s elite troops have hit back by announcing that they would defend the country’s border. In a statement released Tasnim News Agency, the Revolutionary Guard announced that it would defend Iran’s national security at all costs.

The statement read: “As asserted several times, the national security and preserving the Iranian nation's calm and peace of mind, particularly for the dear and gallant people of the border provinces, is the red line of the country's Armed Forces, particularly the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Ground Force.”

After the attack on the Kurdistan region, mayor of the northeastern Erbil village of Choman, Ahmed Qadir denounced the attack calling on Iran to “stop the shelling as soon as possible”.

Iran’s attack on its neighbour comes following a series of events in the region which have threatened to spark conflict.

Last week, Iranian ships attempted to seize a British tanker passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

The ship was ordered to change course before the alleged Revolutionary Guard ships tried to seize the tanker.

British navy ship, the HMS Montrose had been escorting the ship through the region where it ordered the Iranian ship to stand own.

One of the officials said: "The Royal Navy HMS Montrose, which was also there, pointed its guns at the boats and warned them over radio, at which point they dispersed."

Another official said: "It was harassment and an attempt to interfere with the passage."

 Ministry of Oil: Any measure to increase oil production will not be monolithic - Page 3 Empty Washington drops an Iranian aircraft march in the Strait of Hormuz

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States dropped an Iranian aircraft on a march near an American ship in the Strait of Hormuz, the latest of its kind in a region where tensions have been rising for more than two months.
The announcement of the downing of the Iranian aircraft by US President Donald Trump, who said the plane approached the USS Boxer less than 1,000 meters, prompted the warship to carry out "defensive action" now".
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif said he had no information about the loss of an Iranian aircraft.
"We have no information about the loss of a plane today," Zarif said on arrival at the UN headquarters in New York to meet UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterich.
The Iranian armed forces also denied that the United States had dropped one of its aircraft and said all its aircraft "returned safely" to their bases, according to the news agency "Tasnim".
Trump confirmed that the Iranian plane "endangered the safety of the ship and its crew." "This is the latest in a long series of provocative and hostile acts by Iran against ships operating in international waters," he said.
"The United States reserves the right to defend its installations, personnel and interests, and calls on all countries to condemn Iran's attempts to obstruct the freedom of navigation and world trade," Trump said. He called on the rest of the countries to work to protect their vessels as they passed through the Strait of Hormuz and coordination with Washington.
Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said the incident occurred while the USS Boxer was preparing to enter the Strait of Hormuz.
It is noteworthy that Iran has already dropped a US aircraft march, asserting that it violated its airspace, which was denied by Washington strongly. Two days later, Trump announced that at the last minute he had canceled strikes on Iran to avoid heavy casualties, but continued to threaten to retaliate against Tehran after the American aircraft dropped.
As Washington seeks to create an international alliance to keep up with merchant ships in the Gulf, US Central Command chief Kenneth Mackenzie said during a visit to Saudi Arabia that the United States would work "aggressively" with its partners to enhance security of navigation in the waters of the region.
Hours before the United States announced the downing of the Iranian aircraft, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard confirmed on Thursday that it had detained a "foreign oil tanker" and crew, while he was carrying a cargo "smuggled" of fuel.
The Gulf region and the Strait of Hormuz, a gateway to one-third of the world's sea-borne crude oil, are witnessing a surge in tension over a US-Iranian confrontation.
Trump's administration strengthened its military presence in the region, citing Iran's "threats" against its interests, without providing any explanation.
This tension is directly caused by the withdrawal of the Trump administration from the nuclear agreement signed with Iran in 2015, culminating on June 20 after Tehran dropped the US Marines.
The United States accuses Iran of being behind attacks and sabotage on four ships in the Strait of Hormuz in May and behind two other attacks on two ships in the Sea of ​​Oman.
Since coming to power, Trump has taken a firm stand on Iran and the hostile policies of the region.
After Washington withdrew from the 2015 agreement, it re-imposed economic sanctions against Tehran that had negative effects on its economy and led to the loss of most of its oil buyers.
The US administration is pursuing a policy of tightening sanctions on the regime of the Wilayat al-Faqih in Iran, which poses a threat to US interests and the security of its allies in the region.
Washington is seeking through these pressures to force Tehran to sit on the table again under US conditions in line with developments in the region.

Follow-up / tomorrow Press:


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said US President Donald Trump's exertion of maximum pressure would not make him win the negotiating prize with Tehran. 

Zarif said in a statement to the National Instance newspaper that Trump was exerting the maximum pressure on his country because of the wrong advice given to him.



On the confirmation of the Americans dropped by an Iranian aircraft march in the Strait of Hormuz, Zarif said he had no information about the loss of a plane march. 

"So far, we do not know what happened. The US president says they have targeted an Iranian marlin aircraft, while we do not know who is returning.

 Ministry of Oil: Any measure to increase oil production will not be monolithic - Page 3 Doc-P-209094-636992350293077457





BAGHDAD (Reuters) - 


MP Ahmed Abdullah al-Jubouri, head of the parliamentary bloc, responded Saturday to a US decision to include sanctions, stressing that the resolution is unjust. We have the rule of Iraq and we comply with all laws, especially the Iraqi constitution and law.



Al-Jubouri told a news conference attended by Al-Ghad Press that the decision issued by the US Treasury to MP Ahmad al-Jubouri Abu Mazen is unjust and we have the sovereignty of Iraq is a red line and comply with all laws, especially the law and the Iraqi constitution. I went to the courts several times because of the targeting and accusations against us by the political partners and the losers. Two or three of the Rusafa courts have received cases of integrity and we have initiated a request to amend the decision by the Court of Cassation, which approved the discrimination. The case was referred to the Court of Cassation, And we have obtained a decision in favor of our case, which denied the charges and ended the case in favor of MP Ahmed Jubouri, who stopped for two months because of those charges.


"When we talk, we present evidence and this testimony is not judgmental and is dealt with in Iraq and the countries of the world. When a decision from Iraq is ratified, it is inviolable and all countries must hear this talk. We are the project we carry, we do not care about these decisions. " 


He pointed out that "we will go to any courts asking Ahmed al-Jubouri and we have submitted more than once requests to lift immunity from us because we do not concern immunity and does not advance or delay us, stressing that" will continue to make sacrifices to maintain the unity of Iraq, "stressing that" And we will work to prove that victory will be the ally of our project as we have in previous targets. "


"We are not dependent on America or any other, but on the policy here that killed the Iraqi people and continue to do so shamelessly and the situation has reached us to go to neighboring countries to fight each other is a disgraceful thing and Wendy's forehead," stressing that " Elective polishing of the defeated and the poor are our national project. "

Mawazine News 

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday condemned the unilateralism of the United States and its economic terrorism today. 
"The US government is resorting to one of the forms of pressure we call economic terrorism," Zarif said. 
"Both Cuba, Syria, Venezuela and Iran are suffering from this economic terrorism, especially through sanctions," Zarif said. 
Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the country's highest authority, has expressed opposition to negotiations with the United States. "We have no credibility with the United States and we will not negotiate with them," he said.
Iran has recently suspended some of its obligations in the nuclear deal, and has threatened that if European countries fail to meet their interests by agreement, additional steps will be taken. This is a subject that has been strongly criticized by France, Britain and Germany as European members. The United States, which withdrew last year from this, Agreement, the Iranian move as "blackmail"
