Vienna – Resume today, dfter more than five months, the talks in Vienna on Iranian nuclear power between Tehran and the United States and the other five allied powers that signed the 2015 Treaty (China, Russia, France, United Kingdom and Germany), which was then rejected due to the unilateral exit of the Donald Trump’s USA. But the prevailing climate, the observers recorded by the international media note, is one of general pessimism. Joe Biden has changed his policy than the predecessor and would like a return to dialogue to bring Iran’s nuclear development plan, now governed by the ultraconservative president Ebrahim Raisi.
Tehran a few days ago reiterated of not wanting to give up on its nuclear program, criticizing the UN nuclear agency, the IAEA, for alleged ‘partiality’ and on Friday announced a further increase in uranium enrichment, also arousing outrage at the repression of unrest for water shortage in Isfahan. Tehran will send a new delegation of negotiators and reiterates its demand for all sanctions to be fined. Biden, writes Politico today, is ready to get up and to quit if the dialogue to bring back to life the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Jcpa) not being able to make progress.
“Of course Iran’s failure to cooperate is bad for its seriousness to a successful conclusion of our negotiations,” the US State Department said Wednesday. The United States, CNN recalls, if the negotiations fail, they are ready for “other options”. As for the other five countries, members of the 5 + 1 group with America, i.e. the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany), the goal is to start again from where the negotiations had stopped, but to reckon with the unknown of the new Iranian administration, veered decidedly towards the hard line with the Falco Raisi, in office since last August.
