An informal route to begin nuclear discussions was taken by the Iranian regime’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, as a pre-emptive attempt to kick-start nuclear negotiations with the US and its allies Germany, France, and the UK.
Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif made use of Twitter to demand that the Biden administration remove all sanctions against Iran, which were initially introduced by a daring Trump team.
He stated: “US [should] unconditionally & effectively lift all sanctions imposed, re-imposed or re-labeled by Trump. We will then immediately reverse all remedial measures.”
Although the US has once again taken a diplomatic approach to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, which would stop Iran from enriching uranium and developing a nuclear weapon, the West has continued to demand that Iran’s role in Middle Eastern conflicts should be addressed before a new deal is reached.
The Iranian regime is involved in proxy wars in Yemen, Syria and Iraq, helping terrorist groups like Hamas to attack Israel, and destabilizing the Gulf Cooperation Council.
Since the role of Iran in major regional conflicts appears to grow, nuclear negotiations should be an important tool the West can use to reduce Iranian aggression.
