Nuclear talks with Iran restart in Vienna – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – ROME, NOVEMBER 28 – 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 resume tomorrow, after more than five (China, Russia, France, United Kingdom and Germany), later rejected by the unilateral US exit of Donald Trump. But the prevailing climate, the observers recorded by the international media note, is one of general pessimism.

Joe Biden has changed his policy from his predecessor and would like a return to dialogue to put Iran’s nuclear development plan, now governed by ultra-conservative president Ebrahim Raisi, under international control.

Tehran a few days ago reiterated that it did not want to give up its nuclear program, criticizing the UN nuclear agency, the IAEA, for alleged ‘bias’ and on Friday announced a further increase in uranium enrichment, also arousing outrage for the repression of riots due to lack of water in Isfahan. Tehran will send a new delegation of negotiators and reiterates its demand for all sanctions to be fined.

Biden, Politico writes today, is ready to stand up and quit if the dialogue to bring the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) to life shouldn’t make headway. “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 factor of the new Iranian administration, which has turned decisively towards the hard line with the hawk Raisi, in office since last August.
