EU Must Defend ‘Core’ of Iran Nuclear Deal: Commission Chief

  • EU Must Defend ‘Core’ of Iran Nuclear Deal: Commission Chief
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    The European Union Commission chief, Jean-Claude Juncker, has warned about the adverse consequences of the United States’ move to pull out from a key nuclear agreement Iran signed with the P5+1 group of countries in 2015, saying the EU must adopt measures to protect the deal’s core provisions.

    “The termination of the Iran agreement by the US doesn’t benefit global peace,” he said in an interview with Hannoversche Allgemeine newspaper on Saturday. “As co-architects of the Iran deal, we must defend its core,” he added.

    US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the US, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany.

    Trump also said he would reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic. Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

    Speaking to reporters in Brussels on Monday ahead of a meeting of EU foreign ministers, the EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said the 28-nation bloc was determined to save the JCPOA despite the US pullout from the deal.

World Must Withstand Law-Breaking US Behavior: Iran FM

  • World Must Withstand Law-Breaking US Behavior: Iran FM
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says all members of the international community must stand up to US law-breaking behavior, bullying and disregard for the rule of law after Washington announced it was withdrawing from a landmark nuclear deal Iran signed with the P5+1 group of countries in 2015.

    In separate letters to his counterparts in various countries, Zarif warned of the dangerous consequences of the US “illegal and unilateral” move to pull out from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and called for international condemnation of Washington’s extremism.

    “Illegal withdrawal of the US government from the JCPOA, especially bullying methods used by this government to bring other governments in line, has discredited the rule of law and international law at international level while challenging the goals and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and efficiency of international bodies,” the Iranian foreign minister said.

    He added that the US withdrawal from the JCPOA was the country’s biggest effort aimed at violating and weakening the nuclear accord and the UN Resolution 2231, adopted in July 2015 to endorse the historic deal.

    He emphasized that the agreement’s scope, regulations and time frame were the outcome of “accurate, sensitive and balanced multilateral” talks and it is impossible to make any change or hold new negotiations about them.

British Navy and French Military to INFURIATE China by Launching South China Sea Mission

  • British Navy and French Military to INFURIATE China by Launching South China Sea Mission
    by CAITLIN DOHERTY, https://www.express.co.uk/
    THE BRITISH Navy could follow the US and launch a mission into the South China Sea, an area of international waters China and a number of other Asian countries argue to have a claim to.

    British and French ships and naval aircraft will make their way through the South China Sea next week, French Minister of the Armed Forces, Florence Parley, said on Sunday. The boats will sail into areas of international waters where China’s navy is expected to be. The People’s Liberation Army Navy is the world’s fastest growing navy. Ms Parley said on Sunday: “At some point a stern voice intrudes into the transponder and tells us to sail away from supposedly ‘territorial waters’.

    “But our commander then calmly replies the he will sail forth, because these, under international law, are indeed international waters.” She went as far as saying that the French Navy “should broaden this effort even further.” The South China Sea is home to trillions of dollars worth of cargo traffic every year. It is also thought to contain plentiful untapped oil and gas fields.

Jim Willie: Two Key Events Will Unleash Gold — The Global Currency Reset Has Already Begun

  • Jim Willie: Two Key Events Will Unleash Gold — The Global Currency Reset Has Already Begun
    by Jim Willie CB, GoldenJackass.com 
    TIMBER!! That is the standard cry in the forest industry among loggers who cut down giant trees, the warning to step aside for the great impact. GET READY FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS BANKING CRISIS IN THE THREE BIGGEST EUROPEAN ECONOMIES: GERMANY, FRANCE, ITALY. The United States and the London Centre will not be able to avoid the crisis.


    Try that again. TIMBERRRR !! An event of monumental importance and impact is on the verge of occurrence. The largest bank in Europe is Deutsche Bank. Its credit default swap is rising in cost, while its stock price has entered single digits in a powerful decline. The great D-Bank, site of the European office in management of the multi-$trillion derivatives, is on the verge of financial failure. It is the largest bank in all of Europe. All of its business segments are impaired and losing money in a hemorrhage. Furthermore, it is a big bond holder for Italian Govt Bonds. The Italian banking system is in the death throes, which has finally been recognized. Their recent elections openly debated pathways in the face of banking system failure, which the Jackass has been expecting for over a year in steady coverage with analysis. However, the bigger bond holder for Italian debt is France. Expect a massive bank crisis to emerge very soon that wrecks Societe General and BNP Paribas, its two largest banks.

    GLOBAL CURRENCY RESET
    The Global Currency RESET has begun, hardly with fanfare and parades, or even formal public statements by the main players. Many are the events and steps toward the planning and execution of the RESET, which will be very disruptive, and make the Lehman failure seem rather minor by comparison. The Jackass has consistently called what comes to be the Systemic Lehman Event, since major sovereign bonds have become subprime in quality, kept sustained by central banks with their QE.

    TWO KEY EVENTS
    An astute and very well-informed source with solid connections has provided important direction on the development. Timing is always difficult. He looks toward two key events that soon will trigger a global financial crisis, complete with a wave of reforms and solutions sought, all amidst great changes in financial markets. Expect a complete restructuring of the financial world we know it, as in debt restructure. The result will be a gold-centric financial structure, with central banks honoring finally the Gold Standard and the gold asset in banking reserves.

Time to End ‘Russia-Bashing’ – EU Commission Chief Juncker

  • Time to End ‘Russia-Bashing’ – EU Commission Chief Juncker
    by https://www.rt.com/
    European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker has said it’s time for the EU to reconnect with Russia and stop “bashing” it, in surprising contrast to those in the West who have been piling blame and sanctions on Moscow.

    Juncker spoke to an audience at a Brussels think tank event on EU reform. Though his statement had a few catches, the overall message was conciliatory.

    “So we have to come back to, I wouldn’t say normal relations with Russia, but there are so many areas, so many domains, where we can cooperate in a better way with research and innovation and others. Not forgetting what our differences and divergences are. But this Russia-bashing has to be brought to an end,”
     he said.


    Juncker’s call was not entirely conciliatory, though. He said the EU would never accept “what Russia did” to Ukraine and Crimea, referring to the violent 2014 coup in Kiev that brought the current Ukrainian government to power, and the subsequent referendum held in Crimea, which resulted in over 90 percent support for reunification with Russia.

    One of the chief arguments for better relations is Russia’s sheer size. “We have to have in mind that the entire territory of the European Union is about 5.5m sq km. Russia [is] 70.5m,” Juncker said.

    Yet, Russia’s size (which is actually a comparatively modest 17.1m sq km) didn’t stop the EU and its allies from jeopardizing diplomacy with a mass expulsion of Russian diplomats two months ago. A total of over 100 were sent back to Russia from more than a dozen countries, accused of being spies in disguise.

    The expulsion was initiated by the UK in its ongoing push to blame the March poisoning of former Russian-British double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter on Moscow. The UK itself led the way with 23 expulsions, but the US outdid everyone with 60. Most others limited the expulsions to one to four diplomats. Russia mirrored the act with an equal number of expulsions.

    Not everyone was on board, though: Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz stressed the need to build bridges and maintain a mature, trust-based relationship with Moscow amid the finger-pointing.

‘Germany vs the Rest of Europe’ Trump Tariffs to Rupture EU with Backlash Against Merkel

  • ‘Germany vs the Rest of Europe’ Trump Tariffs to Rupture EU with Backlash Against Merkel
    by OLI SMITH, https://www.express.co.uk/
    DONALD Trump’s tough tariffs could rupture the European Union’s united front, with one leading currency strategist predicting a scenario where it will be “Germany versus the rest of the EU”.

    Europe hit back at the US after President Donald Trump slapped tough tariffs on European steel and aluminium earlier this week. The united front was delivered from European Union’s trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom who warned President Trump of retaliation. However, the unity shown in response to the tariffs could quickly change, according to a leading currency strategist. 

    Jane Foley, a senior currency strategist at Rabobank, predicted that over time the tariffs will start to hurt and the rest of Europe will blame Germany. Ms Foley told Bloomberg: “The trade tariffs have potential ramifications for world growth, not just for this year or next year, but the longer term. “This could become Germany versus the rest of the EU. “If you look at the US Treasury report published last month that pinpointed the currency manipulators, they pinpointed Germany and in particular its trade surpluses.

    “They advised Germany to increase domestic demand to get rid of its trade surplus. Trump has an issue with all countries that run a trade surplus with the US.

France, Britain to Sail Warships in Contested South China Sea to Challenge Beijing

  • France, Britain to Sail Warships in Contested South China Sea to Challenge Beijing
    by Liu Zhen, http://www.scmp.com/frontpage/hk
    Defence ministers tell security forum they are contributing to rule-based order.

    France and Britain will sail warships through the South China Sea to challenge Beijing’s expanding military presence in the disputed waters, their defence ministers said on Sunday.

    The two countries, both permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, made the remarks at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, echoing the latest US plan to ramp up its freedom of navigation operations to counter Beijing’s militarisation in the region and its stance that territorial disputes should be a matter between China and its Asian neighbours.

    A French maritime task group, together with British helicopters and ships, will visit Singapore next week and then sail “into certain areas” of the South China Sea, French armed forces minister Florence Parly told the annual defence forum.

    Without naming China, she suggested the warships will cross into “territorial waters” claimed by Beijing and envisioned a potential encounter with its military. “At some point a stern voice intrudes into the transponder and tells us to sail away from supposedly ‘territorial waters’,” she said. “But our commander then calmly replies that he will sail forth, because these, under international law, are indeed international waters.”

‘Somebody STOLE Our Money!’ Italians Open to DITCH Euro to Stop ‘BOWING’ Heads to Germany

  • ‘Somebody STOLE Our Money!’ Italians Open to DITCH Euro to Stop ‘BOWING’ Heads to Germany
    by CHARLOTTE DAVIS, https://www.express.co.uk/
    ITALIANS have spoken out against remaining in the euro and fear there must be reform of the single currency or the country remains at risk of “bowing” its head to Germany.

    Italy has faced a mounting debt problem over the past 30 years with debt totalling more than 130 percent of its economic output, second in the eurozone after Greece.

    Pensioner Alberto Mazzelli told Al Jazeera that ditching the lira bought nothing but problems for Italians. He said: “It was supposed to be 2000 lira to the euro but what used to cost 1000 lira suddenly became one euro. “So, somebody stole half of our money.” The Italian lira was the official currency in  until January 1, 1999, when it was replaced by the euro.

    Another Italian said Italy should remain in the euro but warned: “No, I don’t think we should leave but we should renegotiate so we are not bowing our heads to Germany.” One Italian said: “I’d be ok with trying to leave the euro. But, of course, things could get even worse.”

    Following months of uncertainty, Italian voters saw a eurosceptic coalition Government led by academic Giuseppe Conte become prime minister. Talks about a potential coalition between Italy’s Five Star Movement (M5S) and Lega collapsed on Sunday when Italy’s president Sergio Mattarella vetoed the appointment of eurosceptic Paolo Savona as finance minister.

Iran Leader Says Trump ‘Bullying’ Those in Nuclear Deal

  • Iran Leader Says Trump ‘Bullying’ Those in Nuclear Deal
    by https://www.telesurtv.net/
    Iran’s foreign minister says that European signers to the nuclear deal need to salvage the pact and stand up to Trump.

    Iran’s foreign minister says the world needs to stand up to Trump and save the nation’s nuclear deal after the U.S. exited last month. U.S. President Donald Trump left the 2015 agreement in May which mandated that Iran drastically minimize its enriched uranium projects in exchange and in exchange major economies would lift heavy sanctions imposed on the nation in place for decades.

    Those who remain in the deal – France, Germany, Britain, Russia, and China – still see the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran deal, as the option for Tehran and the world and are still trying to salvage it.

    In a letter from Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to his counterparts, he asked “the remaining signatories and other trade partners” to “make up for Iran’s losses” caused by the U.S. exit, in order to save the deal.

    “The JCPOA (nuclear deal) does not belong to its signatories, so one party can reject it based on domestic policies or political differences with a former ruling administration,” Zarif said in his letter, parts of which were published by the state news agency IRNA on Sunday.

    However, the foreign minister reminded the other signing nations that it was agreed upon by all signatories after, “meticulous, sensitive and balanced multilateral talks”, and could not be renegotiated as the United States demands.

    He said the U.S. made an “illegal withdrawal” from the deal and is using “bullying methods to bring other governments in line” effectively discrediting the rule of law in an international arena.

    Iran’s top leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has announced a series of conditions for the European affiliates of the JCPOA if they want his country to stay in the deal, including ways to safeguard Iran’s trade and oil sales.

Clapper: The U.S. Meddled In Foreign Elections And Conducted Regime Change In The “Best Interests Of The People”

Who is the aggressor?

  • Clapper: The U.S. Meddled In Foreign Elections And Conducted Regime Change In The “Best Interests Of The People”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Former head of US Intelligence James Clapper just admitted that the United States was simply looking out for citizens of various countries “when we tried to manipulate or influence elections or even overturned governments,” a statement directly at odds with the moral high ground claimed by President Obama and other US officials on the topic of Russian election meddling.

    In an interview with Bloomberg’s Tobin Harshaw published Saturday, Clapper – who is promoting his new book “Facts and Fears,” said “I guess the way I think about that is that through our history, when we tried to manipulate or influence elections or even overturned governments, it was done with the best interests of the people in that country in mind,’ adding that the US has a “traditional reverence for human rights.”

    According to a February 2016 report by Dov H. Levin, the United States has engaged in over 80 instances of election meddling or regime change between 1946 and 2000, while a February analysis by the New York Times notes that election meddling is hardly unprecedented.

    “If you ask an intelligence officer, did the Russians break the rules or do something bizarre, the answer is no, not at all,” said Steven L. Hall, who retired in 2015 after 30 years at the C.I.A., where he was the chief of Russian operations. The United States “absolutely” has carried out such election influence operations historically, he said, “and I hope we keep doing it.”NYT 

    We’ve been doing this kind of thing since the C.I.A. was created in 1947,” said Loch K. Johnson, a University of Georgia professor who began his career in the 1970s investigating the CIA for the Senate.

    We’ve used posters, pamphlets, mailers, banners — you name it. We’ve planted false information in foreign newspapers. We’ve used what the British call ‘King George’s cavalry’: suitcases of cash.”

    Don’t forget, the United States has been supporting Al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria – guys who were undoubtedly high-fiving on 9/11, in order to overthrow Syrian President Bashir al Assad (in the best interests of Syrian people, we’re sure).

    And while the United States has been conducting regime change and election meddling for over 70 years, President Obama’s stated foreign policy objectives as summed up in a November 2016 report in the Washington Post: “not every global problem has an American solution.”

    “Obama had run on a platform of ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and regaining the trust of the world. 
    Facing the most significant financial crisis in generations, he stressed the importance of sharing more of the burdens and responsibilities of global leadership with others.


    In other words; the United States will meddle in elections and conduct regime change, but when it comes to dealing with the fallout, not our problem. Hilarious.
