China Demands Biden Return U.S. to Iran Nuclear Deal
Chinese Foreign Minister: “The US shall return to the Iran nuclear deal as soon as possible and without any preconditions.”
Communist China on Monday demanded the United States to return to the Iran nuclear deal and end all sanctions placed on Tehran under President Donald Trump’s watch once Joe Biden moves into the White House.
“The US shall return to the Iran nuclear deal as soon as possible and without any preconditions, and the US should also scrap all sanctions imposed on Iran, other third-party entities and individuals,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a video conference with other four signatories of the 2015 nuclear accord.
The Chinese foreign minister’s undiplomatic and stern tone underlines China’s belief in a ‘reset‘ in bilateral relations with a Biden-run administration. According to Chinese media reports, Beijing opened backchannel talks with figures close to the Biden team last month and wants a rollback on the tough policy course pursued by President Donald Trump.
The Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post reported the Chinese foreign minister’s remarks:
China called on the United States on Monday to return to the Iran nuclear deal without conditions and to lift all US sanctions against Iran and related entities.
“The US shall return to the Iran nuclear deal as soon as possible and without any preconditions, and the US should also scrap all sanctions imposed on Iran, other third-party entities and individuals,” said Foreign Minister Wang Yi, during a video conference hosted by the European Union and attended by foreign ministers from Russia, Iran, Britain, France and Germany – the other signatories to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that US President Donald Trump exited in 2018.
China is not alone, expecting the U.S. to reenter the Obama-Kerry deal once the Democrats take the White House. Foreign ministers from Germany, Iran, China, Russia, and the United Kingdom ‘welcomed’ the prospect of Biden bringing Washington back into the fold of the deal disavowed by President Trump in May 2018.
“A joint statement released by [German Foreign Minister Heiko] Maas and the foreign ministers of Iran, China, Russia and the UK acknowledged their desire to see the treaty upheld and greeted the prospects of a US return to it under incoming President-elect Joe Biden as ‘positive,'” Germany’s state-run DW News reported Monday.
“With Joe Biden on board, all parties to the nuclear deal want to bring it back to life,” the German broadcaster noted in a separate article last week.
The European Union has also joined the diplomatic push to get the U.S. to back the nuclear deal without any preconditions. European powers, mainly Germany, France, and the UK, had lined up huge investments in the oil-rich country before the Trump administration snapped back sanctions on the regime two years ago.
British newspaper The Guardian reported the European push to revive the Iran deal:
EU foreign ministers have agreed not to set fresh preconditions on a revival of the Iran nuclear deal, believing Tehran and Washington should be able to come back into full compliance with the agreement without at this stage needing to accept to extend or strengthen it.
The step removes one of the potential roadblocks to Iran coming back into compliance with the existing deal, so long as the US lifts its sanctions and complies with UN resolutions. (…)
The opposition to setting fresh preconditions came as foreign ministers that are signatories to the deal – France, Germany, the UK, Iran, China and Russia – convened for the first time in a year and welcomed a possible US return to the deal it unilaterally left in 2018. (…)
One senior EU diplomat said: “Everyone around the table agreed on the need to preserve the deal and to convince the US that it is much better to go back to the deal the way it is and without preconditions and without saying yes we want to add something more. If we want Iran to go back to full compliance then we have to bring the economic rewards that we promised. Today the trade between the European states and Iran is lower than it was before the deal.”
Meanwhile, the Trump administration shows no signs of letting down on its tough policies towards Communist China or Shia-Islamist Iran.
The U.S. has increasingly tightened economic sanctions against Iran, the world’s biggest state-sponsor of terrorism. Last month, a joint CIA-Mossad operation eliminated Al Qaeda’s second-in-command, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, hiding near Tehran.
Last week, the White House added leading Chinese companies to the growing list of entities blacklisted for their ties to the Chinese military.
On Monday, the U.S. State Department hit Chinese regime officials with fresh visa restrictions on the grounds of Human rights abuse. Millions of Chinese are languishing in the Communist regime’s forced labor camps.
“China’s authoritarian rulers impose draconian restrictions on the Chinese people’s freedoms of expression, religion or belief, association, and the right to peaceful assembly. The United States has been clear that perpetrators of human rights abuses like these are not welcome in our country,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement on Monday.

to the full extent allowed by law.
Knowing Biden, he will.
I think the only way to bring China to heel is through the marketplace. Our Houses of Congress are sellouts, along with most of the state houses. All we, the people, can do is leave Chinese goods on the shelf.
Knowing Biden, he already has. I wonder if Hunter is still the go-between?
And people think that China played no part in the Great Fraud of 2020?
I hope Biden gets to use some duck sauce when kissing their hindquarters.
Of course he will, he wouldn’t want any more incriminating evidence to leak out about Hunter’s activities.
This would be viable, except for the fact that it is impossible, without government action, i.e. tariffs. One of the reasons why the liberal governments, since Nixon, have been pushing manufacturing out of the US was to make the population of the nation depended upon imported goods. And, even with the inroads made into that problem by the Trump administration, we still are not totally self sufficient, manufacturing-wise.
First step, don’t buy junk from China that you can do without.
That isn’t that hard. Every time I go to the store now I look at the country of origin and if it is China it gets put back.
Well, we know who would really be boss under a Biden administration.
Yup, Quid Pro Joe has been given his marching orders. All that is left is for The Ho and Quid Pro Joe to actually be sworn at on 20 January and then carry out the orders so clearly given.
No, we don’t. Those who think they are will have a raucous time sorting it out. Lots of people want to pull his strings.
China speaks, Biden will obey!
“How high, you dog-faced pony soldier?”
The President needs to submit this non-treaty Treaty to the Senate post haste for The Turtle to promptly bring it to the floor for an up or down (down) vote, putting it beyond the ability of Quid Pro Joe to take us back to it without a new treaty. The Socialist/Communist Party administration would likely implement provisions anyway, but they won’t be able to say that they are required to by the provisions of this treaty.
China owns over half the senate as well.
actually prefer the manner in which israel has handled the “nuclear deal” and its iranian principals
the sheer gall of some mid-level bureaucrat dictating the policy/actions of the usa is telling but of course there is no “credible” evidence of CCP manipulating the outcome of the US presidential election
You know, Fat, the Chinese foreign minister called me and said “Either you reinstate the Iran nuclear deal or Hunter doesn’t get the 1.5 billion dollars. You have 6 hours”.
Well damn, I reinstated the Iran deal. Hunter is happy now
Family friends calling in some chits. China bought a cheap bargain with the Biden Klan.
It ought to be interesting to see those who bought the 2020 election fight over its ownership.
Soros vs Xi Jinping vs Zuckerberg vs Gates vs Musk vs Dorsey and the myriad alliances formed during Trump’s Presidency. To whom will Biden show fealty? Only one of them owns an Army and how long will it take for others to realize that they’re out matched?
“According to Chinese media reports, Beijing opened backchannel talks with figures close to the Biden team last month”
Isn’t that the very same kind of thing that got Flynn in legal jeopardy?
No, Flynn as the presumptive National Security Director and member of the Trump transition team was fulfilling his actual job description. There was nothing back channel about it. Everything was above board.
Shady Joe Biden, on the other hand is having anonymous proxies make underhanded secret backroom deals with the CHICOMS.
ISO: Shall is a legal requirement. Should is a recommendation.
Even a “suggestion” from Biden’s Chinese master is enough. A Harris/Bi-Gone admin will gladly work with(for) China as Harris will get an immediate uptick in business for hubby. American debt payments to China are being “reinvested”.
Red China yells to Joe: “Jump!”
Joe’s response: “HOW HIGH!!!!!!!”
And, Senator Warren says, “HOW!. (hi!)”.
I can only imagine Harry Truman’s reaction to this “demand”.
The media of the time would have put China’s latest effrontery on the front page, and the demand for a forceful reaction would have been universal and bipartisan.
In this benighted era, no media except for a couple of cable outlets and various internet sites, will even cover this outrageous behavior on the part of China.
Biden will never be made aware of this insult by his handlers; consequently, there will be no response to it by our government.
I hope Trump does something in the few weeks he apparently has left.
My response would be to order the construction of 150 naval vessels for our blue water pacific fleet; and ask Japan to do the same since Chinese and Russian bombers now feel free to threaten Japan
Gersh, I saw recently (sorry no link or memory of where) that Japan is building carriers. Big defense budget. Numbers were stunningly big to me.
We should work on cyberwarfare, air and missile defense, and a few other things as well.
Why do you suppose China feels so confident in actually demanding Biden do this. Actually they aren’t demanding this, they are telling their underling what to do as a boss would to a clerk.
Why do you suppose the can do this?
Because they are totally insecure – knowing President Trump Won and is still winning.
Their behavior is identical to Adolph Hitler in his last days in the Berlin bunker.
Up yours, Hop Sing.
China is America’s enemy.
Joe Biden says China is our friend, and China pays Hunter.
Biden accedes to China’s demands.
Biden is America’s enemy.
That sounds like a boss giving their employee an order. What, oh what, could the Chinese Communist Party have that gives them this assurance the Joe Brib’em will do as they say?
It is also the action of an demented cruel old maid school teacher who sees and Knows EVERYTHING is out of their control.
No other reason the immoral Panda ass-face Communists would do this so publicly.
Wang isn’t going to be happy when Trump ultimately stays in the WH another four years.
barn, let us fervently hope
China has made large investments in the election of Biden and other sympathetic Democrats, and its spies have accumulated large dossiers of dirt on many of those in high political positions. China has already gotten the Dems to endorse two resolutions that the CCP wanted, one of which was filed by Harris:
China is now in a position to bring pressure on Biden, Harris, and the other Dems it has supported (such as Salwell) to do its bidding. The news media will not publicize or criticize China’s actions because they don’t want to be closed out of China’s huge market. Reporters who criticize China tend to get fired:
If China wants the US to return to the Iran deal, then Biden, Harris, Salwell, and other politicians who have received support or have been compromised by their spies will have to comply.
Excecuted traitors have a stiff hard time trying to comply with anything.
Well, whatcha gonna do about it?
“China Demands Biden Return U.S. to Iran Nuclear Deal”
Well ain’t that SPECIAL.
Tell Dict. Xiwee Xiwee that demands and $10.00 will get him a crappy coffee at Starbucks too…….
Sorry, poor post. “Nuts” was the reply of the American general to a demand for surrender in the battle of the Ardennes Forest in 1944. I hope we aren’t less courageous now. God bless all those men who held out, most of them dead now.
Yuck foo, China.
Our Sino-Bidenese masters are powerful and wise.
Cruz has the right idea. Trump needs to tie up these cheating motherfuckers by submitting both the nuke deal and the paris accord as treaties to the senate.
What makes you confident the senate will pass those treaties?
Q2: Do you think Cruz knows the answer to that?
The idea is that the Senate won’t pass those treaties. To pass they need 2/3 support. Surely there aren’t that many America-hating Republican traitors in the Senate, are there?
Apparently, China is reminding Xiden of who has bought the corrupt creep’s loyalty. This signifies that China is unsure of operational security for their control channel, otherwise this control would be much better camouflaged. Or, perhaps they are reminding Xiden that he risks exposure of his perfidy if he does not do China’s bidding. The Chinese in power (in China) must be dumbfounded that anybody as flaky as Hunter Biden was supposed to be the control conduit.
IMO, China is telling us they are our masters.
God has made the Communist Chinese blind with stupidity, and soon their starving citizens will be eating them literally.
How’s that criminal social credit rating gonna work for you then when it merely points out the tenderest juicy communists for the people to eat?
This guy needs to shut up and worry about his own country. Hopefully traitor pedophile joe never makes it to be president he already has us sold to china.
“Backchannel talks with China” isn’t this exactly what they tried to get Trump on with Russia for like 3 years????!!!
I think China can go F**K themselves
China successfully bought a Stooge in the White House if Biden gets seated. I am still of the mind he won’t.
If the ChiComs cut Hunter another $1 billion check (with notation of “10% Big Guy”), Biteme will be there with bells on!
Xiden responded, yes sir, Master.
China could at least wait for Biden to become our sitting president before they start telling him what to do.
