Iran’s Rouhani in Europe in July to Seek Backing for Nuclear Deal

  • Iran’s Rouhani in Europe in July to Seek Backing for Nuclear Deal
    by http://www.france24.com/en/
    VIENNA (AFP) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will visit Austria and Switzerland next month as part of a campaign by Tehran to secure continued European backing for the 2015 nuclear accord.

    The future of the landmark deal was thrown into doubt when President Donald Trump announced last month that the United States would withdraw and reimpose sanctions that would hit international businesses operating in Iran.

    The other parties to the agreement — Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia — have vowed to stay in the accord but their companies risk huge penalties if they keep doing business in the Islamic republic.

    Iran has already warned it is ready to resume uranium enrichment to 20 percent “within days” if the deal falls apart and warned Europe that time was running out. The visits were announced Monday by the presidencies of both European countries.

    Rouhani will visit Switzerland on July 2-3 and then head on July 4 to Vienna — home of the UN nuclear watchdog the IAEA which monitors Iran’s compliance with the accord. Relations between Tehran and Bern, which represents Iran’s interests in the United States, have been deepening in recent years, and Rouhani will be welcomed with full military honours, a statement from the Swiss presidency said.

    Vienna played host to marathon talks that began in June 2013 and led to the signing in July 2015 of the deal aimed at preventing Iran from building an atomic bomb.

Globalist Publication Hints Of Nuke Attack Upon New York As Russia Warns Of ‘Chemical Weapons’ False Flag In Syria

    Would Globalists Get America Nuked To Stop President Trump? Scary Results From TV Poll Show Globalists And Liberals Are Suicidal

    In this new story over at Infowars by Paul Joseph Watson that appropriately went viral and was republished over at SHTFPlan and Zero Hedge, we finally get definitive proof that many liberals have gone bat-sh*t crazy in 2018 after a snap survey on a live TV show found that 71% of poll takers would rather America have no peace with North Korea than have to give President Trump credit for helping to put an end to the 70+ year ‘cluster f***’ the globalists created. 

    With the audience on Michelle Wolf’s Netflix TV show asked “Are you sort of hoping we don’t get peace with North Korea so you wouldn’t have to give Trump credit?”, the fact that 71% of those responded YES to ‘NO peace’ quite literally equates to 71% who would rather die in a fiery nuclear holocaust than rightfully give President Trump any kind of credit at all for putting an end to many decades of hostilities half a world away. 

    A poll that truly speaks volumes. Maybe Wolf should have phrased her question differently: “Are you sort of hoping we all die in a fiery nuclear holocaust so you wouldn’t have to give Trump credit?” Think the results would have changed? 

    And while true ‘Peace’ for our planet Earth has moved one small step closer to becoming reality with the US and North Korea reaching an agreement on their nuclear program as we hear from Dilbert cartoon creator Scott Adams in the 1st video below, in this June 12th story from The New Yorker titled “This Is What A Nuclear Bomb Looks Like”, they hint of potential danger still ahead. 

    Warning in their subtitle “If America is attacked, the strike probably won’t come from North Korea. And it will be even scarier than we imagine“, their story goes on to lambast Trump for bringing the fear of nuclear war back to the minds of Americans, hinting “should that day arrive, it will be all President Trump’s fault.”

    Their story then goes on to describe in great detail how such an attack might take place, outlining the march toward Armageddon step by step, as if the luciferian globalists already have such a catastrophe planned, all but ready except for it being carried out. And while most sane people would prefer to avoid a nuclear holocaust, as we’ve previously reported in numerous stories on ANP, apocalyptic Islam NEEDS ‘Armageddon’ to hasten the arrival of their ‘anti-Christ mahdi’.

    And should the corrupt globalists who’ve committed treason against America and sold out our nation and their souls to the devil to get Hillary Clinton into office look like they may soon face their ‘just deserts’, we’d never put it past the deep state ‘false flag creators’ to launch the final one. A false flag nuclear attack upon Washington DC that forever cements their ‘new world order’ as they officially move the capitol to underneath the Denver International Airport. While surely partly just speculation, would you put it past them?

Dave Janda: Donald Trump Will Preside Over Reset and Bankruptcy

  • Dave Janda: Donald Trump Will Preside Over Reset and Bankruptcy
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Radio host Dr. Dave Janda says Trump is bringing big changes to the world with tough talk on trade. At the end of the G-7 economic forum, Trump said America is “like the piggy bank that everyone is robbing, and that ends.” Trump is basically saying America has been cheated in trade deals for decades and countries like China, Canada and Mexico are ripping us off. Janda, who has deep political and Intel sources, says, “Yes, that is correct. Go back to 1992 and Ross Perot. He was demagogued by the media as a crazy man. He was marginalized. He was ridiculed. 110% of what Ross Perot said about NAFTA is correct. It was a great ‘sucking sound’ of jobs leaving and manufacturing jobs leaving. Who benefited by that? Multinational corporations that are run by the globalists and political leaders. . . . All these agreements that are created by the globalists are money laundering fronts. Whether it’s NAFTA or whether it’s the Iran deal, they are all money laundering fronts.”


    The success President Trump had this week with North Korea is tied to trade and China. Janda says, “So, you are going to see a positive development on the peace front. Then you are going to see some backing down of trade war talk with China. Then you are going to see another development with the North Korea peace process and more backing down. People need to realize the peace initiative and trade agreements are working hand in hand. I believe Trump is going to use that same model of negotiation and that same linkage, and Trump is going to take that model he developed in North Korea and China and he’s going to take it to Iran.”

    Also, this week, is the expected release of the Inspector General report on the DOJ and FBI handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The report examines how a decision was made months before the investigation was completed that Clinton would be exonerated of any crimes even though she clearly committed numerous crimes. Janda predicts, “I believe the Globalists are in the crosshairs, and when this report comes out, I believe it’s going to be heavily redacted. Understand something, that’s not where this is going to end.” Janda predicts President Trump will order the report to be unclassified and released un-redacted. Janda contends, “That Inspector General report is going to open the door and open people’s eyes. . . . A very high source has told me for months that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have violated the Espionage Act on many occasions.”

    Janda says the debt based financial system is headed for a reset. Janda says the reset will not only reset the debt but clear out corruption and “restore the rule of law.” Janda also says, “I have political sources that have said a reset will occur. I do not have a time frame for the reset . . . . I believe Donald Trump will preside over the largest bankruptcy in history, and that is why he’s there. I also believe that this reset will involve an escalation in the price of gold and silver, and the manipulation will be terminated.”

EU, China Continue Cooperation on Iran Nuke Deal: EU Spokesperson

  • EU, China Continue Cooperation on Iran Nuke Deal: EU Spokesperson
    by http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/
    BRUSSELS, June 14 (Xinhua) — The European Union appreciates China’s continued and active participation in the Iran nuclear deal, and the two parties are working to cooperate and to preserve economic relations with Iran, an EU spokesperson told Xinhua via email on Thursday.

    The spokesperson was asked over the EU’s attitude towards China’s support of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal. China is a party to the JCPOA, which is a multilateral agreement endorsed by a Resolution of the United Nations Security Council, to which China is a permanent member, said the spokesperson.

    “China’s continued and active participation in the JCPOA is therefore crucial and appreciated, not only by the EU, but by the international community at large. The EU commends China’s significant efforts in leading the Arak modernization project,” the spokesperson said.

    When asked about any cooperation between EU and China in safeguarding the deal, the spokesperson said: “As the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions is aimed at the normalization of trade and economic relations with Iran, legitimate business must continue.”

    “In this respect, the EU and China are already working on avenues to cooperate and to preserve economic relations with Iran. European and Chinese businesses are acting in good faith, and based on commitments made by the international community, as endorsed by the UN Security Council,” The spokesperson said.

    “EU and Chinese experts cooperate within JCPOA working groups, be it on economic measures or on civil nuclear cooperation, to adopt measures conducive to the preservation of the nuclear deal. To this end, EU and Chinese experts participated in experts meetings in Tehran on 7 June 2018,” according to the spokesperson.

Russia to Comply with Iranian Nuclear Deal Terms — Diplomat

  • Russia to Comply with Iranian Nuclear Deal Terms — Diplomat
    by http://tass.com/
    Russia will remain compliant with its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for the Iranian nuclear program.

    MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. Russia will remain compliant with its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for the Iranian nuclear program, including the project for the production of stable isotopes at the Fordow enrichment plant, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told a conference timed for the 50th anniversary of the nuclear weapons non-proliferation treaty.

    “The point at issue is preserving the JCPOA in the narrower format incorporating China, the European troika (Britain, Germany and France), Russia, and Iran. We are determined to stand by our JCPOA commitments, including further implementation of the project for launching the production of stable isotopes at the Fordow facility,” Ryabkov said.

    He described the United States’ pullout from the nuclear deal as a serious challenge to the NPT. “The JCPOA measures, including verification and control, as well as information exchange mechanisms, are unprecedented and establish the most reliable guarantees Tehran’s nuclear program will remain exclusively peaceful,” Ryabkov said.

Mogherini: EU Would Guarantee Nuclear Deal Implementation

  • Mogherini: EU Would Guarantee Nuclear Deal Implementation
    by http://irannewsdaily.com/
    European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said on Tuesday that the European Union will continue supporting the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

    In her speech at the European Parliament, she said that the EU will continue supporting the JCPOA on the simple pragmatic reason “there is no better alternative”, according to Business Standard.

    She said it is essential for the EU’s security and for the security in the region to continue implementing the agreement, and the EU would guarantee this, regardless of the U.S. withdrawal. U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA and vowed to reimpose sanctions against Iran on May 8.

    Mogherini warned the U.S. withdrawing from the JCPOA and reimposing all secondary sanctions are “extremely problematic” and needed to be addressed by the EU, its member states and the rest of the international community. Elsewhere, she noted that Iran has continued fulfilling its commitments under the deal.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency has issued 11 reports each time confirming that Iran is abiding by the terms of the agreement since the 2015 nuclear agreement went into force in January 2016.

    After the U.S. withdrawal, Iran wants assurances from the remaining parties that its interests are guaranteed or it will resume nuclear activities at a higher speed.

    In a phone call late on Tuesday, President Hassan Rouhani told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that statements of European support for the nuclear deal “should be combined with actions and tangible measures.”

    Macron responded to Rouhani by saying that he “hoped that Iran, for its part, will fulfill its obligations under the nuclear agreement without any ambiguity,” Reuters reported. The French president also updated his Iranian counterpart on “the progress in the work being done” from Europe’s side.

  • Iran is Delghted by Europe’s Support for Nuclear Deal, Rouhani Tells Macron
    by , http://www.newsweek.com/
    Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron by phone on Tuesday, expressing his pleasure at Europe’s continued support of the nuclear agreement despite U.S. withdrawal.

    “Rouhani expressed delight with the stance adopted so far by European countries including France to preserve the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action],” the Iranian state news agency IRNA reported.

    At the same time, the Iranian leader told Macron that statements European support “should be combined with actions and tangible measures.” Rouhani said he hopes the efforts to preserve the treaty by France, the United Kingdom, Germany, China and Russia—all signatories of the agreement—will be successful.

    Macron responded to Rouhani by saying that he “hoped that Iran, for its part, will fulfill its obligations without any ambiguity,” Reuters reported. The French president also updated his Iranian counterpart on “the progress in the work being done” from Europe’s side.

    President Donald Trump backed out of the 2015 agreement, considered a landmark foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama, on May 8. Long an opponent of the Iran nuclear accord, Trump had criticized the pact as “the worst deal ever.”

Iran Will Quit Nuclear Deal If It Does Not Benefit from It: President Rouhani

  • Iran Will Quit Nuclear Deal If It Does Not Benefit from It: President Rouhani
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the Islamic Republic will quit the multilateral nuclear agreement Tehran signed with major world powers in 2015 if it does not benefit from the deal after the US pullout.

    Rouhani made the remarks during a Tuesday phone call with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, a month after the United States’ unilateral move to withdraw from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    “If Iran cannot enjoy the agreement’s benefits, it will be practically impossible to stay in it,” Rouhani said.

    The Iranian president commended the statements of the European countries, including France, to salvage the JCPOA. However, he emphasized that such declarations must be accompanied by practical and tangible measures and solutions to help Iran benefit from the agreement.

    “We should not allow that this very great diplomatic achievement be destroyed by the others’ unilateral measures and acts of violation,” he said.

    Rouhani expressed hope that efforts by the five remaining signatories to the JCPOA and Iran as well as the European Union would be successful and fruitful.US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany.

Iran’s Rouhani Asks Macron for Action to Save Nuclear Deal: IRNA

  • Iran’s Rouhani Asks Macron for Action to Save Nuclear Deal: IRNA
    by https://www.reuters.com/
    PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned world powers on Tuesday that it was impossible for Tehran to stay in the nuclear deal if it cannot benefit from the accord after the U.S. withdrawal.

    In a call with French President Emmanuel Macron, Rouhani said he was satisfied with Europe’s stance, especially French efforts to salvage the 2015 deal, but that “such statements should be combined with actions and tangible measures”.

    “If Iran cannot benefit from the (nuclear) deal, then it’s practically impossible to stay in the accord,” Rouhani was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying in a phone call with the French president. The pact between Iran and world powers lifted international sanctions on Tehran. In return, Iran scaled back its nuclear activities, increasing the time it would need to produce an atom bomb if it chose to do so, a goal it denies having.

    Since President Donald Trump withdrew the United States in May, calling the accord flawed, European signatories – France, Britain and Germany – have been scrambling to ensure Iran retains enough economic benefits to persuade it not to pull out.

    Macron’s office said he had told Rouhani in the same telephone call that France remained committed to the nuclear deal but Tehran needed to fully comply with its commitments. “The President of the Republic recalled the will of France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China, to continue to implement the Vienna agreement in all its dimensions,” Macron’s office said.

    “The president informed President Rouhani of the progress in the work being done on our side. He hoped that Iran, for its part, will fulfill its obligations without any ambiguity.” Macron’s office confirmed a previously agreed ministerial meeting between all the remaining signatories of the deal, the European powers, China and Russia, would be held in the coming weeks in Vienna. French diplomatic sources said the meeting was likely to take place during the week of June 25.
