Europe Wants Iran Talks
By Micah Halpern

Friday September 3, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

France, Germany and The United Kingdom have all been urging Iran to come back to the table and, once again, talk to the P-5+1 about their nuclear plans.

In response, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi announced that Iran would, indeed, resume talks with world powers with the objective of reviving the 2015 nuke deal.
But – and this is a big “but” they will not sit down and talk with Western "pressure". Raisi also made it cleat that Iran’s objective is the lifting of U.S.- imposed sanctions.

Negotiations without pressure. I do not thank that exists anywhere in the world. The entire point of negotiations is to push and to be pushed back. Maybe, quite possibly, this is Iran’s first push.

France and Germany have pushing Iran to return to negotiations. A break in the talks was called a few months ago to allow for Iranian elections in June. And now, elections are over and France is demanding an immediate restart amid Western concerns over Tehran's expanding atomic work.

Last month the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), aka the UN’s nuclear watchdog, confirmed that. For the first time, Iran has produced uranium metal enriched up to 20% fissile purity and lifted their production capacity of uranium enriched to 60%.

And that is the impetus for the big push by France, Germany and Britain to get Iran back to the table and talking.
