What is the obstacle to the agreement; Borrell claims or Western forgetfulness?

Without mentioning the unconstructive behavior of the American parties in the negotiations, Joseph Burrell accuses Iran and Russia of obstructing the negotiation process, while the most important obstacle is reaching a Western decision and guaranteeing the US adherence to a possible agreement.

NOURNEWS - Talks between Iran and the P5+1 continue in the form of bilateral and multilateral consultations and talks, including the visit of Enrique Mora, the coordinator of the Vienna talks, to Tehran.

Meanwhile, EU foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell has made some thought-provoking remarks:

"Negotiations between the world powers and Iran over the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal after overcoming the Russian blockade, this time stalled due to the Tehran blockade"!

Borrell told the European Parliament:

"Two weeks ago, we were almost on the verge of an agreement. Russia wants to prevent the lifting of sanctions on Iranian oil, because if Iran starts producing oil, there will be more supply in the markets, and that is not in Russia's interest."

He went on to say that Iran's demand for the IRGC was an obstacle to the outcome of the talks, and without mentioning the US's obligations, accused Iran and Russia of obstructing the agreement, while Russia's guarantee was based on the bitter experience of Western's obligations. This is evident in the West's lack of commitment to the IAEA, as well as the agreement not to expand NATO to Russia's borders.

The bottom line is that Russia does not want to impede Iran's oil exports, but to receive a written assurance that Western anti-Russian sanctions under the pretext of Ukraine will not affect Tehran-Moscow economic relations, according to JCPOA.

The important point is that Russia has played a constructive role in the negotiation process, as Iranian Foreign Minister Amirabdullahian emphasized during his visit to Moscow, and said that the continuation of cooperation between the two sides is important in concluding the UN Security Council and countering sanctions.

Since the start of the seventh round of talks between Iran and the P5 + 1, Iran has announced its red lines, which include the complete lifting of sanctions, verification, and finally the West's assurance that past obligations will not be repeated.


In fact, the Islamic Republic has explained its negotiating framework from the very beginning and has considered any passage beyond them impossible.

On this basis, it can be clearly stated that the need to lift sanctions and the withdrawal of the IRGC from terrorist groups is not a new demand in the negotiations, but part of the demands of the Islamic Republic to lift all sanctions, as Iran had stated from the beginning. "It will not happen."

Borrell made no reference to the unconstructive behavior of the US side and tried to unilaterally blame Iran and Russia for the failure of the Vienna agreement, while Robert Mali, the US government's special envoy for Iran, said on Sunday:

The current White House resident cannot guarantee the next US administration's decisions regarding a nuclear deal with Iran.

"The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps will remain under sanctions," he claimed at the Doha summit.

These remarks indicate that, on the one hand, the United States continues to seek to maintain anti-Iranian sanctions, and on the other hand, it has not decided not to repeat its past commitments.

Clearly, what has prevented the talks from reaching a conclusion is not the new demands of Iran and Russia, but the West's forgetfulness, a path that seeks to downplay the West's lack of commitment to Iran's red lines with anti-Iranian and anti-Russian claims.

Borrell's remarks reflect the fact that the West remains under the illusion of unilateral blackmail, while Iran has explicitly stated that it is ready to reach an agreement in the event of a tangible change in Western behavior and the preservation of Iran's red lines in the negotiations.

Tehran insists that disagreeing is better than a bad deal, and that if the Europeans are to negotiate, they must take the right path instead of accusing Iran of confronting the United States' extravagances and irrational behavior.
