Iran Rejects Biden’s Offer to Halt Uranium Enrichment in Return for Further “Sanctions Relief”

Iran Rejects Biden’s Offer to Halt Uranium Enrichment in Return for Further “Sanctions Relief”

Iran demands end to “all sanctions” for merely entering into talks with the Biden White House.

Iran has refused President Joe Biden’s proposal to end the nuclear enrichment in return for further easing of sanctions. The move is part of the Biden administration’s effort to start talks with Iran to restore the Obama-era nuclear arrangement. 

Last month Iran turned down Biden’s offer to enter into nuclear talks even as the White House rolled back some major international sanctions on the regime. His administration revoked the enforcement of the U.N. sanctions and weapons embargo on Tehran, reversing a decision taken by President Donald Trump. 

Politico reported Biden’s desperate bid to appease Iran:

The proposal asks Iran to halt some of its nuclear activities, such as work on advanced centrifuges and the enrichment of uranium to 20 percent purity, in exchange for some relief from U.S. economic sanctions, said one of the people, who stressed that the details are still being worked out. (…)

Asked for official comment, a senior Biden administration official declined to discuss details of diplomatic conversations: “We have been clear that we are ready to pursue a mutual return to the [Iran deal],” the official added. “We have also been open that we are talking with our [international] partners … about the best way to achieve this, including through a series of initial, mutual steps. We have been looking at options for doing so, including with indirect conversations through our European partners.”

The Iranians promptly rejected Biden’s offer: “A senior Iranian official tells Press TV that Tehran will stop its 20-percent uranium enrichment only if the US lifts ALL its sanctions on Iran first.”

With the Biden administration coaxing and cajoling Tehran into entering an Obamaesque deal, the regime has set its sight on bigger rewards while doing nothing to dismantle its nuclear weapons program. Since President Trump left the White House, Iran has ramped up enriched uranium production, the key ingredient for building up a nuclear arsenal. 

Given that President Barack Obama flew in pallets of hard cash worth billions after closing the 2015 deal, Iran is hoping for a similar windfall from the Bide team. 

Biden’s offer comes as China signed a 25-year trade and military deal with Tehran on Saturday, giving a new lease of life to the Mullah regime. Sitting firmly in Beijing’s lap, the Mullahs have upped the ante. Iran’s foreign minister demanded a trillion dollars in “reparation” for sanctions imposed during the Trump presidency and lifting all economic restrictions before Tehran even comes to the table.  

China and Russia have backed Iran’s demand for an end to the Trump-era sanctions. Both regimes have ‘told’ the Biden administration to return to the Obama-Kerry nuclear without any pre-conditions or modifications. “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 Yi declared in December.

As Biden displays off his pathetic haggling skills to the Mullahs of Persia, it remains to be seen if he ends up outdoing Obama in enriching the Shia-Islamic regime, the world’s biggest state sponsor of jihad warfare and terrorism

Wow.

They have so little respect for this doddering puppet fool that they aren’t even willing to PRETEND to stop.

    Imagine, if you will, *resident Joe Biden sitting down to a poker table to risk some serious stakes.

    Yeah, you’re right, that’s even too impossible to happen in the Twilight Zone.

Iranians are shrewd negotiators. It’s a haggling culture where everything is negotiated. Every Iranian I know is adept at this skill.

Biden is far out of his league.

    Well, in terms of negotiating for the US true.

    We will never know how much Iranian money he gets laundered through the Ukraine or elsewhere for his family benefit will we?

    But I bet even there he would make a bad deal and would sell America out for a few millions.

    We should offer Iran a few nuke, free delivery. milliseconds to study them upon delivery. I bet that after delivery they would be less shrewd, and much more reasonable.

There’s no incentive at all for the Iranians to compromise on anything. The Chinese will give them pretty much anything they want without repurcussion. The Biden administration has already rolled back sanctions and eased pressure and you just know they’re dusting off the knee pads and loading up more pallets of cash.

I can’t even blame them. Dementia Joe the communist pedophile speaks with no authority and they have no reason to believe he’ll back anything he says.

The Iranians just watched Secretary of State Blinkin get hosed by the Chinese. It’s now a game of “Punch the Clown”.

    Blinkin Blinks at Iranian Summit. (imaginary headline)

    >> Really, Blinkin is not the name you want for a negotiator.

      I would trust a negotiator named “Blinken” about as much as I would trust anybody named “Madoff” to handle my finances.

Good thing we have Biden to take a hard stance. The US should have leverage over Iran in every way and over China in enough ways to at least force detente and mutual respect for the other’s global power. Our current overlords are giving the game away while running agitprop that serves those nations that would like to see the US harmed substantially.

How stupid of the totalitarian class to think after the payoff and years to develop nukes Iran gives a rats backside what Quid Pro has to say.

    Biden still believes the Iranians are negotiating in good faith. That simply isn’t true. If the Iranians just wanted a civilian power reactor, there would be no need to enrich uranium over 5%. In fact, most civilian reactors can run on fuel that is only enriched a few percent. The cost of uranium goes up exponentially with the percentage of enrichment; so utilities prefer reactors that only require a few percent enrichment.

Biden, Blinken et al have absolutely no idea how to negotiate with Iranians. You walk away and ratchet up THEIR pain until they come to US. I have a number of Jewish Iranian friends (all of the Bazaari class) who are just shaking their heads at how feckless and clueless this Administration is in dealing with the Ayatollahs.

Of course Iran isn’t playing ball. Biden revoked sanctions before he started “negotiating”. That’s an incredibly weak position to be in.

It used to be said that there were two kinds of guys in school. Those who spent a lot of time hanging from coat hooks and the ones that put them there. I suspect that Xiden is the first one and Iran is definitely the latter.
