Belgium: Deputy FM Says Iran Waiting for European Proposal to Save Nuclear Deal

  • Ruptly Published on Jun 22, 2018

Nuke Deal Needs More Concessions from EU: Iran Official

    Iranian deputy FM says Tehran, too, may withdraw from 2015 nuclear deal
    Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi has said that the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and the West required more concessions from Europe in order to remain intact, Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported Friday.

    IRNA cited remarks made by Araqchi in an interview with Euronews in which he said “the majority of the Iranian people don’t trust Europe; the Europeans must try harder to win this their trust”. “Many Iranians believe the US withdrawal from the [nuclear agreement] is just a game of ‘good cop-bad cop’, with Europe playing the role of the good cop,” Araqchi asserted.

    He said Iran wanted to see the “full implementation” of the deal’s terms, which, he added, could not be achieved when one of the parties to the agreement was facing the threat of economic sanctions. “We don’t know how Europe plans to preserve the agreement while bypassing U.S. sanctions [on Iran],” the official said. “What concerns us is the continued presence of European firms in Iran, the sale of crude oil and the deposit of oil revenue in our bank accounts without hindrance,” he stressed. He added: “There must be a banking link between us and Europe. It is up to the Europeans to find a suitable channel.”

    “Iran is running out of patience,” he went on. “There is a possibility that the country [Iran] could withdraw from the deal in coming weeks.” Araqchi also said that ongoing talks with the EU were unlikely to save the agreement in its current form. “We are still waiting — and hoping — that the European proposals will be enough to keep Iran in the deal,” he said.

Israeli Troops Kill Young Palestinian in Gaza Strip

  • PressTV Published on Jun 18, 2018
    Israel military forces have shot and killed a young Palestinian man in the besieged Gaza Strip during an anti-occupation protest along the border separating the blockaded enclave and the Israeli-occupied territories. The Gaza Ministry of Health identified the victim as Sabri Ahmad Abu Khadir, 24, adding that he succumbed to his severe wounds at al-Shifa Hospital at Monday noon, a few hours after the Israeli forces directly opened fire on him in the eastern borders of Gaza City. According to Palestinian Ma’an News Agency, the victim was among a group of young protesters who had arrived on Monday morning at the “return camps” along the eastern Gaza border to hold their demonstration as part of the “Great March of Return” before Israeli troops deployed at the border opened live fire at them.

Israeli Cabinet Ministers: Gaza War May Be Inevitable

Note: the idea of expanding Gaza into the Sinai desert is BOGUS. The Zionists want to expel all Palestinians in Gaza into the Sinai desert.

  • Israeli Zionists-Illuminists leaders are pathological liars! The plan is to launch the war against Gaza to force all Palestinians into the north Sinai desert.
  • Israeli Cabinet Ministers: Gaza War May Be Inevitable
    by Tazpit Press Service, https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/
    … There is a good chance that Israel will launch a wide scale military operation on the Gaza Strip in the near future, Minister of Public Security, Strategic Affairs and Minister of Information, Gilad Erdan (Likud), told Army Radio Thursday morning.

    “I think there is a good chance, that has grown in recent weeks, that in order to restore peace and quiet [to the area], that there will be no choice but to launch a wide-scale military operation in Gaza in the coming months,” said Erdan, adding “Is this something I want? No.”

    When asked if Israel has lost its deterrence against Hamas, Erdan responded “I don’t think so. I think Hamas understands very well the prices it is paying. They lost 150 of their men in the last few months.”

    Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) agreed with Erdan’s assessment that a military operation may be inevitable, and also added also that this is not the desired outcome,” Shaked said, also to Army Radio. “As far as I am concerned, there is no difference between a qassam rocket and a fire kite… Erdan is right in that a military operation is always an option, but we have no interest, and neither do [Hamas] to escalate the situation to that, though there might be no choice. “If the IDF succeeds using less extreme measures, (that would be) perfect,” she added.

U.S. Close to Releasing Mideast Peace Proposal that Palestinian Leadership May Immediately Reject

  • U.S. Close to Releasing Mideast Peace Proposal that Palestinian Leadership May Immediately Reject
    by June 21, https://www.washingtonpost.com/
    The Trump administration is close to releasing a long-awaited Middle East peace proposal that officials said would present U.S. goals for a settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, despite the Palestinian position that President Trump cannot be an honest broker.


    The proposal is likely to be released within weeks, with the aim of beginning negotiations between the parties, perhaps as early as this summer, diplomats and other officials said. It has been delayed by a months-long Palestinian boycott in protest of Trump’s policy that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas may reject the framework out of hand.

    “If he doesn’t give it a read, if he just sticks with the language which he’s been saying publicly, such as the U.S. is out [as a peacemaker] and that he won’t even look at it, that type of language, well shame on him,” a senior Trump administration official said. “How does that help the Palestinian people?”

    The exact timing of a release is not set. “We’re going to let the situation on the ground determine when to do it rather than deciding on a deadline and force it,” said the official, who, like others interviewed, spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plan has not been released. “We have one shot, right? We want to get it right.”

HEADS UP: Banks Are Falling Out… by Lynette Zang

  • ITM Trading Streamed live on Jun 21, 2018
    Link to Slides and Sources: https://www.itmtrading.com/blog/heads…
    TWO PATTERN SHIFTS! Last October we saw a major insider selling pattern emerge, as some insider sectors avoided buying stocks even as they continued heavy selling. Since the start of the year, after a major selling spike, there is a bit of a lull the following week. But the last two weeks has seen huge spikes in selling without the following lull. We look at this every week, so time will tell if this is a trend escalation. We may be fast approaching that time. In another PATTERN SHIFT ALERT, SIFIs have decoupled from the stock markets. In fact, Ian Harnett, managing director of global strategy at Absolute Strategy Research in London just sent out his first “Black Swan” alert since the crisis began, because of this pattern shift. Things certainly seem to be heating up. Got Gold?

    And if you want to know what to actually DO about all of this, that’s what we specialize in. How do you protect your wealth for the next collapse? Yes Gold and Silver, but what types? What strategy? And what long term plan? If you’re asking these questions you’re already ahead of the game. We’d love to assist you as it is our mission to safeguard you from the inevitable downfall of the dollar.

US Warns Damascus to Cease Army Operations in Syria Against ISIS and Al Qaeda

  • RT America Published on Jun 22, 2018
    Concerns have been raised by the State Department this week that the Syrian government is increasing its presence in southwest Syria. Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, Daniel McAdams joins RT America’s Anya Parampil to take a more in depth look.
  • US State Department ‘Concerned’ Over Syrian Government Operations in…Syria! Against ISIS and Al Qaeda
    by Daniel McAdamsRon Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, via https://www.globalresearch.ca/
    State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert released a statementtoday warning the Syrian government to cease and desist from its final military push against ISIS and al-Qaeda groups in southwest Syria. The United States is “deeply troubled by reports of increasing Syrian regime operations in southwest Syria” because such operations are within the “de-escalation zone negotiated between the United States, Jordan, and the Russian Federation last year and reaffirmed between Presidents Trump and Putin in Da Nang, Vietnam in November,” the statement says.

    What a strange warning. The United States, which illegally occupies territory of a country nearly 6,000 miles away, is warning Syria, the country it partly occupies, not to conduct military operations against terrorist organizations within its own borders! Aside from the absurdity of Nauert’s press release, there is the important matter that the whole statement is a lie.

    First, the “deconfliction zone” to which she refers has been unilaterally declared by the United States. Syria never agreed to cease military operations within its own borders. Suggesting that Damascus is violating some agreement when it was never party to the agreement is shockingly dishonest.

    Second, even the “de-escalation zones” agreed between Russia, Iran, and Turkey in Astana, Kazakhstan, in May, 2017, exempted UN-recognized terrorist groups from the deal. So even if Syria was a party to the US-claimed “de-escalation” agreement, its current advance on ISIS and al-Qaeda controlled territory would not be a violation.

Under-Fire Merkel Says EU Summit Won’t Solve Migration Issue

Merkel MUST go! 

  • Under-Fire Merkel Says EU Summit Won’t Solve Migration Issue
    by AFP, https://www.thelocal.de/
    Chancellor Angela Merkel Friday played down expectations that an EU summit next week will reach a solution on the issue of migration that has plunged her government into crisis.

    Speaking on a visit to Lebanon, Merkel said that “we know that no solution will be reached on Thursday and Friday at the level of the 28 member states… on the overall issue of migration”. Instead, she said, “bilateral, trilateral and multilateral” deals must be reached to tackle the issue – a message echoed almost word for word by her spokeswoman Ulrike Demmer at a Berlin press conference.

    The comments came after Italy’s new coalition of far-right and anti-establishment parties made clear it does not want to take in more migrants, and after several eastern European states said they would stay away from preliminary talks on the issue Sunday.

    Italy’s far-right interior minister Matteo Salvini reiterated in comments to German news weekly Der Spiegel that “we cannot take in one more person. On the contrary: we want to send away a few.”

    Merkel, after allowing more than one million asylum seekers into Germany since 2015, has faced a strong domestic backlash that has now turned into a government crisis, just over 100 days into her fourth term.

    Her hardline Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has given her an ultimatum till the end of the month to reach EU deals allowing Germany to turn back asylum seekers already registered in another member country.

    After that, he has vowed to defy her by ordering German border police to turn back those migrants, setting the stage for a showdown that could end Merkel’s fragile coalition government.

DUTCH FURY: Macron and Merkel’s Eurozone Reforms Brutally Shot Down with ONE Question

  • DUTCH FURY: Macron and Merkel’s Eurozone Reforms Brutally Shot Down with ONE Question
    by CARLY READ, https://www.express.co.uk/
    EMMANUEL Macron and Angela Merkel’s Franco-German campaign for a €25BILLLION Eurozone kitty to help finance crumbling member states has been brutally shot down by the Dutch Minister of Finance with one simple question.

    Wopke Hoestra laughed off France and Germany’s joint crusade for a multi-billion euro debt relief that would be paid for by the EU’s 28 member states by asking the rhetorical question “What do we need it for?”. He added: “For me this is a solution without a problem.”

    Mr Hoestra went on to say the EU had other issues it should devote itself to before adding “but that’s not part of it”, referring to Mr Macron’s budget proposal which after much pleading was given the nod by bosom buddy Ms Merkel.

    Poland joined the Netherlands in slamming the proposal, which has raised many questions about exactly how it would be funded, with Krzysztof Szczerski, who heads Poland’s President Andrzej Duda’s cabinet, issuing a chilling warning to the bloc.

    He said should the countries of the monetary union finance the budget themselves, it would not be an issue. “But if it is created at the expense of its contributions to the general budget, then this would be the end of the EU,” he added.

    Mr Macron is spearheading the campaign which he launched after a catalogue of crises with member states over the past few months that have put the Eurozone on the brink of collapse.

    First, there was Spain, which has been torn apart following Catalonia’s shock referendum that saw residents vote by a landslide to become their own independent state.

    Italy then plagued Brussels with a number of catastrophes when after months of political deadlock, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte was finally sworn in after elections dating as far back as early March were deemed inconclusive.

12 European States Revolt Against Merkel, Macron Plan To Reform Europe

  • 12 European States Revolt Against Merkel, Macron Plan To Reform Europe
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Two days ago, when we laid out the components of Merkel and Macron’s blueprint to reform the EU, we said that while “Macron suggested the proposal will be presented to other countries, with specifics to be worked out later this year and the plans to take effect from 2021, it was unclear how he plans to get “other countries” to vote for a proposal which has already led to the alienation of Central and Eastern Europe, Brexit and an openly populist government in Italy.”

    We did not have to wait long for confirmation, because just two days later, Europe’s two self-proclaimed leaders were facing an unexpected backlash from most other European governments against the German and French plans for a common eurozone budget, dealing a blow to the two countries’ ambitions for a big overhaul of the single currency area.

Iran May Exit Nuclear Deal in Coming Weeks – Deputy FM

  • Iran May Exit Nuclear Deal in Coming Weeks – Deputy FM
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The Iran nuclear deal is in “intensive care” and it’s possible that Tehran will have to withdraw from the pact if an agreement cannot be reached with its European signatories, the country’s deputy FM Abbas Araghchi has warned.

    Iran wants to preserve the deal but adjustments need to be made as a result of Washington’s decision to withdraw from the landmark accord, Abbas Araghchi said in an interview to Euronews. The deal has “lost its balance” due to the US withdrawal, he added, so “if Europeans, and other remaining participants of the JCPOA are interested in Iran remaining in the deal, they should compensate [for] the absence of the US, and the re-imposition of US sanctions.”

    Tehran has repeatedly stated that it wants to salvage the deal, but has expressed frustration over European proposals for preserving the accord. Ali Akbar Salehi, chief of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI), said on Tuesday that Europe’s proposals to save the deal after the US withdrawal were not acceptable to Tehran. “If it continues like this, all sides will lose,”Salehi said.

    The European Union is considering a range of options to help breathe life into the faltering deal. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s chief diplomat, said in May that the bloc was considering deepening Europe’s economic ties with Iran, shielding banking transactions with Tehran, and maintaining Iranian oil and gas purchases – as well as using EU finance to boost investment in the Middle East country. Like Araghchi, she likened the nuclear deal to “a relative in intensive care.”
