World Leaders Beg Iran
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday May 10 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Leaders from around the world are still attempting to convince Iran to come back to the negotiation table and sign on to a new nuclear agreement.

The European Union's Iran nuclear coordinator, Enrique Mora, is going to Tehran to meet Iranian negotiator Bagheri Kani.

On Twitter, Enrique Mora wrote: "Travelling again to Tehran for meetings with Bagheri Kani and other officials on the Vienna talks and other issues. Work on closing the remaining gaps of this negotiation continues."

Ali Shamkhani, the chair of Iran's powerful Supreme National Security Council, tweeted in Hebrew that nuclear talks were progressing and "were a sign that the strong government and its official ability to deal with the most important matters."

Shamkhani was, obviously, trying to bring home his point to one of the nuclear dealís most outspoken naysayers

Mora has played a crucial role in facilitating the negotiations, given that Iran refuses to speak directly to America. He last traveled to Tehran in late March, before heading to Washington.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said Mora would be "conveying messages" from the other signatories to Tehran during his trip.

One of Iranís most outrageous demands is that Washington lift its terrorism designation from the Revolutionary Guard.

Separately, the International Atomic Energy Agency, has grown increasingly critical of Iran's failure to cooperate and its refusal to explain the traces of radioactive material at several undeclared nuclear sites.

The IAEAís head, Rafael Mariano Grossi, has repeatedly expressed his frustration with Iran. He is quoted as saying: "We, in the last few months, were able to identify traces of enriched uranium in places that have never been declared by Iran, so we are extremely concerned about this."

Grossi added that he was skeptical that officials could close a nuclear deal if the IAEA still had unanswered questions.

This is not over Ė and probably wont be over for a while.
