Biden Plans to Reenter Iran Nuclear Deal Without New Conditions, May Rollback Sanctions

Biden Plans to Reenter Iran Nuclear Deal Without New Conditions, May Rollback Sanctions

The New York Post: Biden’s negotiations with Iran “would involve the US lifting the President Trump-era sanctions.”

Joe Biden plans to reenter the Obama-era nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran if he takes office next month, he told the New York Times in an article published on Wednesday.

Biden told the NYT that under his administration, “in consultation with our allies and partners, we’re going to engage in negotiations and follow-on agreements to tighten and lengthen Iran’s nuclear constraints, as well as address the missile program.”

He suggested a Democrat-run White House will also offer the lifting of sanctions on Tehran as part of the negotiations.

President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal in May 2018 and placed crippling economic sanctions on Iran, the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism.

The New York Post reported the comments made by the Democratic presidential candidate:

[Biden] made the admission during a wide-ranging interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who pressed Biden on where he stood with regard to Iran.

Asked if he still stood by a September op-ed he authored where he argued in favor of rejoining the Obama-era accords “as a starting point for follow-on negotiations,” Biden said he did.

“It’s going to be hard, but yeah,” he remarked. At the time, he had argued that, “if Iran returns to strict compliance with the nuclear deal, the United States would rejoin the agreement as a starting point for follow-on negotiations” under his presidency.

The next steps would involve the US lifting the President Trump-era sanctions.

Biden’s overtures to the Mullahs in Iran come amid a coordinated campaign by the European Union and the European powers, namely the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, to revive the Obama-sponsored nuclear agreement. Earlier this week, a group of influential European politicians and diplomats issued a statement calling the “incoming Biden administration” to draw a “road map” for the U.S. reentry into the nuclear deal, European media reported.

The left-wing UK daily Guardian on Tuesday reported the European efforts to lobby the Biden team:

France, Germany and the UK must move quickly to set out a roadmap for Iran and the incoming Biden administration in the US to come back into compliance with the nuclear deal, some of Europe’s leading diplomats have said. (…)

The statement has been signed by the former UK Middle East minister Alistair Burt; the former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt; Wolfgang Ischinger, the former German ambassador to the US; Jean-David Levitte, the former French ambassador to the US; the former Nato secretary general Javier Solana; and the former Polish foreign minister Andrzej Olechowski. (…)

On Monday it was announced that the remaining signatories to the nuclear deal – France, Germany, the UK, Russia, Iran and China – will meet at joint commission level in Vienna on 16 December to discuss how to keep the deal alive.

The diplomats hope their roadmap, and the key role given to Europe to act as a mediator, can be picked up at that meeting and help overcome the sequencing difficulties that face any reopening of the negotiations.

The statement, coordinated by the European Council on Foreign Relations, urges the E3 to call first on the Biden administration, once inaugurated, to announce that the US will rejoin the nuclear deal, and then for the US and Iran to agree on steps for mutual recompliance.

The EU’s short-sighted commercial interests drive its clamoring for the revival of the nuclear deal. The European players have long been eying multi-billion deals in Iranian oil, manufacturing, and infrastructure sectors once the U.S. sanctions come down. President Trump’s campaign of ‘maximum pressure’ on the regime has forced most European companies and big investors to flee Iran.

A possible Biden-Harris administration, which is more favorable towards Tehran, could mean a cash windfall for the Mullah. India, the second-biggest buyer of Iranian oil before the sanctions kicked in, is again talking of resuming shipments if Biden takes office.

Reuters on Wednesday reported India’s plans to resume oil purchase from rogue regimes of Iran and Venezuela under a possible Biden administration:

India wants to diversify its oil imports, including the resumption of supplies from Iran and Venezuela, after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden takes office, Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Wednesday.

India was the key buyer of Iranian and Venezuelan oil before slashing purchases after President Donald Trump imposed unilateral sanctions on the two OPEC-members since taking office in 2017.

“As a buyer I would like to have more buying places. I should have more destinations to go for purchasing (oil),” Pradhan said in response to a question if he wants the Biden administration to relax sanctions on Iran and Venezuela.

Biden’s comments come as President Trump is turning the heat on the Iranian regime. Three weeks ago, a joint U.S.-Israeli counter-terrorism operation killed Al Qaeda’s second-in-command, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, who found a haven in Iran.

The man known as the “father of the Iranian bomb,” Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated outside Tehran last week. The U.S. and Israel have not commented on the killing.

Iran has repeatedly violated the 2015 nuclear deal, enriching illicit weapons-grade uranium and developing a ballistic missile program capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Thrilled by the mainstream media reports declaring Democratic candidate Joe Biden winner in the U.S. presidential race, Iran’s Mullahs are rushing ahead with their nuclear weapons program.

Reassured by the media narrative of Biden’s victory, Iran is ramping up its nuclear weapons program. Last month, the nuclear watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)  confirmed that Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium had crossed the 2,440kg-mark, 12 times higher than the permissible limit. The amount is “theoretically enough to produce two nuclear weapons,” BBC reported.

Abject surrender is poor opening bid.

    Plus we know Biden plans nothing since he has completely lost his mind.

    His Communist Chinese buyers “just think” they’re going to suck back up to the demonic Iranian Dictatorship.

    Ohio Historian in reply to irv. | December 4, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    Isn’t Robbinette French? Biden is just living up to his heritage as a loser by surrender.

How many billions in unmarked bills is he going to send this time?

    JusticeDelivered in reply to georgfelis. | December 4, 2020 at 10:55 am

    That will depend on how much of of the money will flow into the Biden crime syndicate. Has Hunter quietly slipped into Iran to discuss the details yet?

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to georgfelis. | December 4, 2020 at 12:23 pm

    Why send money. Might as well just send the complete plans for a functional nuclear weapon to the Iranian Islamic government and be done with it. The un-ratified “nuclear deal” was never going to stop that so might as well just get it over with sooner than later.

      What we should do is send a couple of hundred nuclear weapons and eliminate Iran.

        notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to ConradCA. | December 4, 2020 at 4:14 pm

        That’s the idea maybe?

        Send them demonstrations with working examples rained down from the heavens?????

        Edward in reply to ConradCA. | December 4, 2020 at 4:33 pm

        I feel sorry for the average Iranian. They allowed their children to overturn their country’s government (with some degree of help from the Carter administration) and have suffered the consequences since.

        That being said, I’m not opposed to turning the country into a fused glass covered parking lot.

      Ohio Historian in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | December 4, 2020 at 6:22 pm

      That is what BJ Clinton did for China was to send ballistic missile guidance technology when they couldn’t build their own. Why would you expect Biden to not walk in the shoes of his heroes BJ and Barack?

    randian in reply to georgfelis. | December 4, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    I’ve always wondered how much of that cash ended up on Obama’s and Biden’s pockets, the same as I wondered how much of the missing money at the Department of State ended up in Hillary Clinton’s pockets.

Evil shall rampage across the globe.

israel will handle any nuclear threat from iran–biden’s corruption/deceit is another matter

This is reason enough NOT to give in to Democrat election fraud!

Iran says Biden, I reject your deal…I will grift you to no end and you will take it because both you and I are China’s puppets.

Biden told the NYT that under his administration, “in consultation with our allies and partners, we’re going to engage in negotiations and follow-on agreements to tighten and lengthen Iran’s nuclear constraints, as well as address the missile program.”

Isn’t that exactly what the ramrodded General Flynn over? And this doesn’t seem to the only thing Biden and team are talking about to “allies” and foreign leaders.

Good thing, Trump is going to be President. Maybe a new and improved DOJ will prosecute. Turn the tables.

    Edward in reply to barnesto. | December 4, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    His Imperial Executiveness, Emperor Barak the Nonpareil on down wanted LTG Flynn out, he knew too much and had plans to cut a lot of the fat out of the intelligence agencies.

    That being said, apparently VP Pence was swayed by his Chief of Staff to throw LTG Flynn to the wolves and did so by pushing for the President to fire him. Pence would have been far better off to fire the Chief of Staff sooner (January to July 2017) and keep LTG Flynn as National Security Advisor. He wouldn’t have likely been screwed with by the Bureau if Pence had refused to fire him, saving the Flynn family their home, their life savings and years of doubt and Leftist activist punishment by the mentally disturbed judge sullivan (POS – D).

The Foreign policy of appeasement.

Trump/McConnell should put both the Iran deal and the Paris Climate Accord to a ratification vote in the Senate. We can find out who the Americans are in the Senate and strengthen a law fare hand if Biden tries to give the store away (yet again). Once the Senate rejects the two pacts, it would seem to me to make it less likely that Biden could implement them, Obama style, with a pen and a phone.

A joyous Iran could not be reached for comment.

Israel, beware.

the demented old goat is bought and paid for. May he rest in the traitors circle of hell.

Isn’t “Biden plans”an oxymoron?

It’s still not to late for the Senate to assert that Obama’s agreement to guarantee that Iran obtains nuclear tipped ICBMs is a treaty requiring Senate ratification.

Furthermore, seeing how Iran violated the agreement at it’s inception by failing to truthfully report the status of their nuclear program it’s past time to snap back the sanctions as Obama promised.

Palettes full of cash, reordered/denied claims, and transnational terrorism. Forward!

The Peace through Weakness and Appeasement coalition is back. No more Mr. Tough Guy.

Who cares?

Look, people continue to treat the “election” of Joe Biden as being legitimate and legal. Every single day more graphic evidence surfaces to support the contention that Biden ended up with more votes through coordinated fraud in 5-6 major Democrat cities. Now, if this is treated a being legitimate, it is the equivalent of someone showing up at your house with a forged deed and you vacate. If you allow it to happen, then you can not complain about the damages done to your home as a result of your acquiescence. Once you allow the fraud to bear fruit, you have lost.

Biden is an embezzler and a traitor on a level we thought could not be exceeded by clinton or obama.

We’re being ruled by traitors, that scumbag Barr among them.

Biden is already negotiating with Iran according to the BBC.

    He needs John Effing Kerry to go negotiate with them. That traitor was negotiating with them the last 4 years.

The question remains, will China Joe grovel and kowtow to the Mullahs as Barry did and ship billions in the night to Iran?

That sounds about right for a communist traitor.

” International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed that Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium had crossed the 2,440kg-mark, 12 times higher than the permissible limit. The amount is “theoretically enough to produce two nuclear weapons,” BBC reported.”

And they developed the ability to enrich to a high level, build the technology, and do 2.5 tonnes of U in the space of time since Trump took us out of the Iran deal (May 2019?). To all the leftists that believed the Iranians, I will send you $25 million from my poor old Aunt who died in Nairobi but needs help getting the money out. Just send me $1.4 billion in cash on a pallet.

I can’t help but wonder what personal benefit Europe’s leaders will be getting for their support.

I would expect no less.

Of course, he wants to re-enter the agreement. He has to for Obama and his own wealth. Remember that pallet of cash Obama sent to Iran? I’m convinced that a good part of that was funneled back to Obama in a money laundering scheme disguised as the Netflix deal and, perhaps, his book deals. Otherwise, there is no economic justification for those deals. And how else could Obama afford multimillion dollar properties in D.C., Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii, after having been a community organizer and short term politician? How does that happen?

And Joe sees another income stream from Iran to enhance what he’s already receiving from Ukraine and China, and who knows where else?
