Do countdown has begun for the coup, the West on Iran again?

December 10, 2016 in the media center , reports 

 

 

 

1-5.jpg

It says signals coming from a number of Western capitals, regarding Iran, the countdown in Western countries, relations with Iran began And that there are steps began to be taken, what worries the Iranians who are starting to feel the ecstasy of victory after the signing of the major powers (P5 + 1) nuclear program with Tehran Agreement, and the direction to lift the sanctions on Iran, and visit a number of European officials, Tehran, and the release of frozen Iranian funds in banks Western, and pressure from President Barack Obama's administration; to approve the agreement, and requested from Congress not to oppose the agreement.

It is clear that the winds of change in Western capitals, has begun to change direction again, and there are tendencies began to appear for the return of hostility to Tehran again, but to extend sanctions against it in Washington, and the letter of the new American president, Donald Trump, against Tehran's nuclear program and the agreement is clear.

Israel stands firmly behind it, and said the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said he would discuss with Donald Trump's nuclear "bad" deal, signed by the West with Iran after the entry of US President-elect the White House, and during the US election campaign, described the "Trump" nuclear agreement last year, as "the worst disaster and a negotiated agreement at all."

It is not a formal treaty

He said US State Department spokesman, Mark Toner, in a press summary "The nuclear agreement, is not a formal treaty and certainly it is no one can prevent any other party to this Agreement, to withdraw," asserting that the president-elect Donald Trump will be able to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran if it so wishes, denying the validity of what appeared in the media world of the Iranian president's remarks in which the next president of the United States warned of withdrawing from the nuclear deal.

Comprehensive Action Plan

"New York Times" newspaper of America, confirmed that the Iranian president, Hassan Rowhani, said in a televised speech to a crowd of attendees, speaking of the forty-fifth president of the United States, Donald Trump, he wants to tear up the joint comprehensive action plan for the nuclear deal, do we will allow the government or our country this? ", and warned that there would be consequences if the Trump implement what he promised, without specifying the nature of these consequences.

Extend sanctions

President Barack Obama delivers a health care address to a joint session of Congress at the United States Capitol in Washington, DC, Sept.  9, 2009. (Official White House Photo by Lawrence Jackson) This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and / or for personal use printing by the subject (s) of the photograph.

In Washington, the US Senate ratified, the decision to extend sanctions against Iran for 10 years again, awaiting his signature from Obama to become effective and before it passed the House of Representatives, the extension of sanctions on Iran for a period of 0.10 years, and which was approved initially in 1996 to impose sanctions on investments in Iran's energy sector and to deter Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.

The Obama administration and world powers reached an agreement last year, Iran agreed whereby to reduce its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions imposed on it, but members of Congress said they are interested in the survival of sanctions to send a strong message that the United States would respond to any provocations from Iran and give any US president the ability to quickly re-sanctions if Iran had violated the nuclear deal.

Before the Senate vote on the extension of the sanctions, US Secretary of State student, John Kerry, senators from the Democratic Party not to approve the decision to renew the sanctions for 10 years against Iran, saying that the renewal of sanctions in the next US government period will weaken the nuclear deal.

And the transfer site, "the Monitor" for the American Kerry as saying, during a meeting with members of the Senate as a Democrat, said that the failure to approve the renewal of sanctions against Iran aim to protect the legacy of the American foreign policy of outgoing President Barack Obama.

A fundamental turning point

And spotted a newspaper "The Times", Iran's position in Syria, and the developments of the battle in the Syrian city of Aleppo and its aftermath and published a report on two pages, as well as an editorial titled "From the ruins of Aleppo: can not allow Iran to victor appears in Syria."

The newspaper said, that the war in Syria reached a fundamental turning point, with the progress of President Bashar al-Assad strengthened forces militias backed by Iran and under air cover Rossi and secured control of the heart of the old city of Aleppo, adding that the imminent collapse of the east of Aleppo would give the regime control of the top 5 cities in the country and on the overall western Syria.

Iran does not emerge victorious

And see "The Times", that the next Trump management that seemed friendly to Russian President Putin, have two priorities in Syria: the first defeat of state regulation, or at least expel remnants outside of Syria and Iraq, and in this quest, ensure that Iran does not come out as the victor, and publish "their impact bad "in the pan so-called Shiite Crescent through Hezbollah militiamen in Lebanon, and Shiite fighters who are backed by Iraq and Syria.

Trump and Putin

The newspaper added that the Trump after he assumed the presidency could reach an understanding with Russia could play together pounding state regulation and expelled from his stronghold in Raqqa in Syria, and indicate "The Times", that Moscow and Washington have become allies for a limited time, and if the expulsion of the organization from Syria Vsadei both Trump and Putin's victory, but without the threat of state regulation will be difficult for al-Assad to maintain the image of the stands on the right side in the war on terrorism.

Gulf fears

MANAMA, BAHRAIN - DECEMBER 06: British Prime Minister Theresa May meets King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud of Saudi Arabia (L) on December 6, 2016 in Manama, Bahrain.  Prime Minister May is the first British leader and the first woman to attend the annual two-day Gulf Cooperation Council and will attend a dinner with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman on Tuesday, and will also discuss the situation in Yemen and Syria.  (Photo by Stefan Rousseau-Pool / Getty Images)

Crossed "The Times" in an editorial on the fears of the Gulf states and Saudi Arabia, and pointed to the word the Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May, before the GCC summit in Bahrain in the final session, and warn that Iran is seeking to consolidate its control over Syria. And that Israel also fears that Iran's influence has spread rapidly to pose a threat in the Golan Heights.

Tehran and pairing with Assad

The Times concluded, that Trump's management will focus on drive a wedge between Moscow and Tehran, noting that US analysts believe that Iran is associated with Assad in spite of, or because of his weakness, but Russia could accept an alternative enjoys the loyalty of the Syrian army and preserve a unified country and are allowed to keep Bakadha Navy in Tartous.

"The Times" editorial concluded by saying, that there may be a bargaining chip to come but it will be ugly and dangerous place on the graves of 400 thousand people who were killed in the last years of the rule of President Assad. And that will come out of the ruins of Aleppo, a new approach to the conflict Sasmm world politics.

better opportunity

The newspaper "Financial Times" .. grabbed the political Trump editorial towards Iran, came the opening under the title "Iran's nuclear agreement gives the best chance for peace," and said Iran and America have succeeded in avoiding direct military confrontation despite more than 30 years of hostility between them.

Worst Trade

The "Financial Times", that Trump said, "The agreement last year on the site of Iran's nuclear program was the worst deal has been negotiated," it is likely to request a thorough review of the agreement as soon starting their work in the White House.

The newspaper added that Trump does not need to withdraw the United States from the agreement, which has proved in the decision of the Security Council, to abort, but it can achieve this by provoking Tehran and paid for unilateral withdrawal from the agreement.

.. Arrogance and against the interests !!

And saw the newspaper, that would be the act of arrogance and against US interests and stability in the region, but it will still be present danger given the nature of the hawks who Dmthm Trump preliminary list of appointments.

The newspaper stressed that the nuclear deal has strengthened Iran's reformist president, Hassan Rohani position, in the face of the military establishment and the tide of radical clerics, as it killed public support with his allies win the moderates in the recent parliamentary elections in February.

The interests of hard-liners

And he concluded the "Financial Times", an editorial by saying, that the termination of the agreement does not liberate Tehran restrictions on its nuclear ambitions, but also ignite a nuclear arms race throughout the Middle East and undermine the chance Rouhani to win the cycle a second term in the upcoming elections in the Mayor, and in the interest of hard-liners in Iran.

She stressed that the Vienna agreement, such as a major breakthrough, came after long years of negotiations, and succeeded the United States before the creation of an international consensus to punish Iran with sanctions, and brought to the negotiating table, but this consensus no longer exists now, and that the countries that have contributed to the achievement of the agreement, Russia and China France, Britain and Germany, are still supporting him unanimously.

Choice of fighting

It stressed the paper, that if Trump chose to undermine the agreement, Washington often go solo to this option, it would be foolish in front of them choose the fighting at the moment of offering the greatest opportunity for a breakthrough, and after Iran and the United States succeeded in avoiding direct military confrontation, even though more than 30 years of hostility between them.

Shell deal

And published the "Financial Times", a report on the signing of Shell preliminary agreement on a possible investment in three of the largest oil and gas fields in Iran, with an estimated Shell, the South Azadigan field project alone could be worth about $ 10 billion, and the opinion of the newspaper that the uncertainty over US policy toward Tehran does not affect the global energy companies.

Giant oil fields

The United States exempted Japan and 10 EU nations from financial sanctions because they have significantly cut purchases of Iranian crude oil, but left Iran's top customers China and India exposed to the possibility of such steps.  The decision announced on March 20, 2012 is a victory for the 11 countries, whose banks have been given a six-month reprieve from the threat of being cut off from the US financial system under new sanctions designed to pressure Iran over its nuclear program.

The newspaper pointed out that the new agreement includes studies of the giant oil fields in Ozadigan and Yadavaran, in the southwest of Iran, as well as the Kish gas fields in the Gulf.

This is referred to the agreement first revealed from major Western oil group to work with Iran since the election of Trump, president of the United States of America's commitment to, and Shell estimated that the southern Azadigan field project alone could be worth about $ 10 billion.

The Total, the French oil company, signed last month, a preliminary deal worth $ 4.8 billion to develop the South Pars gas field sea, which is the first agreement of its kind to expect Iran since the lifting of sanctions imposed on Tehran, the state in January.

Boeing Inks In $16.6 Billion Plane Deal with Iran

Boeing Co. completed a $16.6 billion agreement to sell jetliners to Iran, the first major deal between a U.S. company and the Islamic Republic since Donald Trump, a critic of closer links with the country, was elected president.

Plane deals including one by European plane maker Airbus Group SE have been among the most high-profile transactions completed by the government in Tehran after western powers in January removed sanctions on the country in return for it agreeing to constrain its nuclear program.

The Airbus and Boeing plane deals have been staunchly opposed by critics of the nuclear accord with Iran. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has attacked the Iran deal and threatened to undo it.

 

Mr. Trump has named retired Army Gen. Mike Flynn as national security adviser and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) as Central Intelligence Agency director. Both have voiced opposition to the nuclear deal. Lawmakers in the House of Representative also have sought to block airliner transactions to Iran.

 

The Boeing deal is valued at $16.6 billion, the Iranian government said on Sunday. The deal will cover deliveries to flag carrier Iran Air over the coming decade.

Iran’s transport minister Abbas Akhoundi said the Boeing deal was “the first step for the renovation of the country’s aviation fleet,” and would soon be followed by the finalization of its deal with Airbus, according to Iranian state news agency IRNA.

Boeing, in a sign of how politically sensitive the transaction is, said on Sunday that it “coordinated closely with the U.S. government throughout the process leading up to the sale and continues to follow all license requirements as it moves forward to implement the sales agreement.” The aerospace and defense company added that the deal would support U.S. jobs.

The contract could put Chicago-based Boeing again in the crosshairs of the President-elect. Mr. Trump last week fired a broadside at the world’s largest airplane maker over a contract to develop and build a new fleet of Air Force One presidential planes. Mr. Trump tweeted the program should be canceled because of its high cost.

Though the election of President Trump has caused some uncertainty among companies looking to do business with Iran, some important projects are moving forwardRoyal Dutch Shell PLC on Wednesday said it had signed an agreement with Iran’s state oil company to explore future ventures.

France oil major Total SA has raised its profile in Iran too, reaching a $4.8 billion gas-development deal last month.

For Iran Air, replacing planes is a priority. After years of sanctions, some imposed in the wake of the Iranian revolution in 1979. the carrier operates some of the world’s oldest airliners.

 

The Boeing order would cover 50 of 737 MAX single-aisle planes. It would include 15 777X long-haul jetliners, Boeing’s newest jetliner still in development, plus an equal number of the current version of the twin-engine plane.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control rules had to approve the license for Boeing and Airbus to sell planes to Iran. It gave the green light in September.

Some Iranian airlines remain under sanction because of U.S. allegations they have links to terrorist activities and Iran’s weapons program.

Airbus in January agreed to sell 118 planes to Iran Air in a deal valued at around $25 billion at list price, though buyers typically get discounts. Airbus Sunday said it would not comment on talks with potential customers.

Iran needs to renew its fleet dilapidated

Tehran - Iran Air lines announced Sunday it had signed a contract is the largest in 40 years with the US Boeing Company for the purchase of 80 aircraft to renovate dilapidated air fleet for this institution, despite sanctions imposed by Washington against Iran.

He said Farhad Brorh general manager of the company who signed the contract with Boeing officials in Tehran that "the contract includes the purchase of 737 aircraft fifty and thirty model of the giant 777-style to be delivered to Iran during the period of 10 years."

According to the official news agency, the deal is worth $ 16.6 billion, the first since the Khomeini revolution in 1979.

The agreement with the American company, despite new tensions after the vote the US Senate last month voted overwhelmingly to extend sanctions against Iran, which was supposed to be completed late in 2016, ten years after a similar resolution adopted by the House of Representatives is supposed to be signed by President Barack Obama.

After an agreement in principle in June, the US government gave its final approval to sell the aircraft in September.

This was reflected in the lack of new planes and spare parts to the work of Iranian airlines for years, where one has the worst safety records in the world with nearly 1,700 people killed in the military and civilian disaster series since 1979, according to the Flight Safety Foundation.

He quoted Minister of Roads and Urban Akhunda Abbas, saying "With the signing of this contract, have been taken the first important step towards modernization aviation fleet in the country."

It is also scheduled to end Airways Iranian contract for the purchase of 100 new aircraft from the European Airbus.

He Akhunda "Our goal is to increase our ability to compete in the aviation industry to be able to return to our share in the transport industry in the region and the world," referring to Iran's position in the airline industry before the Islamic Revolution.

Pressure sanctions

After initial approval early this year, the US administration formally approved in September on the deals with Airbus and Boeing.

In January the nuclear agreement reached between Iran with major powers income (United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany) on July 14, 2015 in Vienna into force.

The agreement allowed the partial lifting of international sanctions imposed on Iran to meet its commitment to its nuclear program is only for civilian uses.

Washington had raised a number of sanctions on Tehran, but they kept on the number of entries means the need for companies doing business with Tehran on the express consent of the White House.

And the voice of the US Senate last month B99 votes in favor and one without objection to the extension of the sanctions is directly linked to the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, which was concluded mid 2015. The House of Representatives voted on this text in November.

Traditionally, the renewal of the total US imposed since 1996, every ten years of sanctions.

This includes the resolution imposed sanctions on Iran's banking sector as well as energy and defense. However, some argue that the law violates the spirit of the agreement between Iran and major powers which provides for the reduction of the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions imposed by the United States and other countries.

And the renewal of US sanctions has raised angry reactions from Iranian officials, saying they constitute a breach of the nuclear deal, while US President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to tear apart the agreement.

Iranian President Hassan Rohani and subjected to a series of criticisms after the nuclear deal failed to attract more foreign investments made by, because of the international banking concern from trading with Iran.

Also questioned Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, in the aim of buying a new fleet of aircraft worth billions of dollars.

He said in June, "Let's assume that we have to develop our fleet. Well, it is important and very necessary step. But is it a priority?".

Because of its foreign policy ... hurt Iran's economy

East News -

 

 

When Iranian President Hassan Rohani took office in August 2013, carrying the slogan «rescue the economy from sanctions, corruption and mismanagement». Commenting Iranian street who vote for it, 51 percent, have high hopes for his ability as a politician, a moderate who can open up to the world, especially the United States and Europe, in preparation for the abolition of sanctions and work for the return of economic prosperity to the country and improve the lives of Iranians level.

 
Strategic big decision was to bet on the completion of the nuclear deal with the six countries, which ensures the president Rouhani win a second term in 2017 so that the big hopes of increased after the signing of the agreement in June 2015, and begin to implement it in the January 17 (January) 2017. Description President Rouhani this achievement that represents a «golden page in the history of his country», observers Americans also saw that President Barack Obama, who is struggling to achieve a victory before the end of his second overall with Iran agreement, betting on President Rouhani, who is considered a dove reformists, and it deserves support in the face of hawkish conservatives.

 
With the announcement of a series of plans and investment projects of Western companies in Iran, the World Bank predicted that Iran's economy to grow in the range of 5 percent this year, up from 2.8 percent at the end of last year, and 1.9 percent in 2014, to coincide with the lifting of international sanctions. As well as the International Monetary Fund forecast to accelerate real growth rates rates ranging between 4 and 5.5 percent during the years 2016 and 2017, while the Tehran government aims to achieve growth of 8 percent over the next ten years, which is in need of foreign direct investments in sizes up to about 50 billion.


There is no doubt that to achieve this without many difficulties, especially that Iran was hit Boukibat hoping to hand the lack of progress in the process of lifting of the international sanctions against it, despite the move about a year to begin implementing the nuclear deal, so that the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said that the «lift the ban on the paper has no value », and criticized the United States for the difficulties faced by the Iranian economy in dealing with the international financial system. US Banks are prohibited from working with Iran, including a ban European banks and most of the banks that settle financial transactions and payment allocations.


It is natural to limit the problem of the settlement of financial payments from Iran's oil exports, which Tehran expects to double from 1.2 million barrels to more than three million barrels per day, to be increased at a later stage to about four million barrels, it has put the government Rouhani fiscal year budget in 2017 --2,018 which begins in March (March) on this basis at a price of $ 50 a barrel, so as to ensure revenues of approximately $ 33 billion.


If Iran has received 32 billion and $ 600 million in frozen funds to be released for the remaining amounts at the rate of $ 700 million a month, according to the announcement by the Governor of Central Bank of Iran Waliullah sword, there is disagreement about the total funds frozen figures, as estimated by the Iranian side at 150 billion, while is 55 billion estimated by the American side.Instead of getting Iran to the remaining funds, she found herself a claim from the United States to pay substantial fines pursuant to the provisions of the court, compensation for victims of terrorism, totaling about $ 46 billion.


In this area, highlighting the US generalization of the concept of terrorism and his inclusion in a number of organizations and countries, so that President Barack Obama has described Iran explicitly as «sponsor of terrorism, and supports terrorist groups» pointing out that it contributes to the support of the Syrian regime, Hezbollah and its support in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza Gaza and help the rebels in Yemen »and accusing it of being» engaged in risky behaviors and destabilizing for the stability of the region. »


Pursuant to the continuation of its policy of expansion and to impose its influence on the region, it has increased the share of the Ministry of Defense in fiscal year 2017 -2018 budget about 39 percent to $ 10.3 billion, while it was up to 6 billion in 2013.


The share of the Revolutionary Guards have doubled in four years from $ 3.3 billion to 6.9 billion in the next year, knowing that the Revolutionary Guards is linked to its name with a number of military operations outside of Iran, which controls foreign policy and economic resources and strategic spending, in addition to the US government has taken a severe penalties against these forces with the Basij forces.


Before the US Senate approve the extension of the sanctions imposed on Iran, which expires at the end of the current year, for ten more years until the end of 2026, and brought 11 Arab countries (cooperation with Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Jordan, Yemen Council countries) a joint letter to the United Nations expressing concern common to the Constitution of the Republic of Iran, which calls by political and religious symbols to export the Iranian revolution to other countries, stressing that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism in the region. The letter «since it was Iran's signing of the nuclear deal have not seen them only increased aggression in the region and its continued support for terrorist groups».


Therefore, it is natural to see US relations - Iran's sudden developments at the beginning of the reign of Donald Trump, which begins in January 20 (January), especially as the management team of generals focuses its attention on Iran's political and military, in particular, plans to Iranian Defense Minister Hassan Dehghan threatened b «global war» if the United States proceeded to withdraw from the nuclear deal.


This threat came in an interview broadcast by the official news agency Mehrhbh which he said: «enemies may want to impose on us a war based on false accounts, and such a war would mean the destruction of Israel, and will include the entire region, and could lead to a world war».

Thanks, Yota.

This wouldn't be happening if Trumps private meeting with Boeing went sour. I still say Iran is a good investment.

      Iraq aims to ease US-Iran tensions
      Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said Baghdad will send teams to Tehran and Washington to calm tensions. (File/AFP) Updated 22 May 2019 ARAB NEWS May 21, 201915:48     Follow @arabnews Iraqi delegations to visit both countries “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war,” says PM       BAGHDAD: Iraq will send delegations to Tehran and Washington over the next few days in an attempt to ease tensions in the region, Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.
      “Iraq has conducted high-level contacts (between the US and Iran), and its vision is very close to the European vision to resolve the crisis in the region,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war. So we will send delegations to Washington and Tehran.”
      Tensions started to rise between the two countries after the US withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, in May 2018.
      Since then, the US has imposed economic sanctions on Iran. US President Donald Trump warned on Monday that Iran would be met with “great force” if it attacked American interests in the Middle East.
      Iraq has been a battleground for the US and Iran since 2003. Both countries enjoy significant influence in the region.
      Iraqi leaders believe that their country could become the first confrontation zone if war breaks out between the two nations.
      “Iraq is in the stage of transferring messages between Washington and Tehran as we try to defuse the crisis between the two sides,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “It is our responsibility to defend Iraq and its people, and secure them from the threat of war.”
      During a visit to Baghdad earlier this month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Abdul Mahdi that targeting any US interests in Iraq will be dealt with militarily.
      A Katyusha rocket was fired on Sunday into Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses government offices and embassies, including the US Embassy.
      The rocket fire came days after the US evacuated staff from Iraq, citing threats from Iran. It was not clear who was behind the attack, which caused no casualties.
      The attack “embarrassed” the Iraqi government, which has pledged to secure diplomatic missions and protect US interests, senior Iraqi officials told Arab News.
      The Iraqi president, prime minister and speaker of Parliament, as well as heads of political blocs and commanders of armed factions linked to Iran, have held meetings over the past few days.
      “We’re working together to invest our relations with the two parties (the US and Iran) in order to ease the tension and find peaceful solutions,” Ahmad Al-Assadi, head of an Iraqi parliamentary bloc, told Arab News.
      “The outbreak of war between America and Iran will cause great damage to the entire region. Iraq will be the biggest loser because it’s in the heart of the storm.”
      During the meetings, political leaders and representatives of armed factions linked to Iran agreed on a 12-point document that aims “to keep Iraq away from the ongoing struggle between the US and Iran by all possible means.” Al-Assadi said the Iraqi Parliament will vote on the approved document.
      Dozens of paramilitary troops associated with Iran operate in Iraq, and present the biggest challenge for the Iraqi government and political leaders.
      “We agreed that no armed faction is allowed to ignite the war inside Iraq for any reason, and whoever violates this deal will be considered our enemy,” one of the leaders linked to Iran, who participated in the meetings, told Arab News.
      “We don’t want to be blamed for this war, but the situation may change if the US insists on starting this war inside Iraq.”
