Are the Vienna talks failing?

The unresolved issues in the Vienna talks are not just about not lifting IRGC sanctions, and there are other issues that the United States is stubbornly refusing to resolve.

NOURNEWS - The suspension of face-to-face meetings between the P4 +1 and the Islamic Republic of Iran due to the entry of negotiations into the political decision stage by the United States has increased speculation and, of course, the development of targeted media flows, especially by Western circles.

The Wall Street Journal, one of the mainstream media on the western side of the Vienna talks, claimed the day before that EU Deputy Foreign Minister Enrique Mora would try to persuade Iran to sign the Vienna Agreement without removing the name of the Revolutionary Guards from the list of foreign terrorist organizations.

The release of this news, which has not yet been confirmed by any independent source, while attempting to show the irreversibility of the US bullying position, underscores the erroneous statement that in order to reach an agreement, Iran must deviate from its principled positions.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly stated that, given the West's record of involvement, especially the United States, in the full implementation of the IAEA Board, the parties must seek a strong, just, and lasting agreement to reduce Western concerns about Iran's peaceful nuclear program. , Provide the necessary conditions for the full use of our country's economic interests.

Accordingly, red lines are set for the Iranian negotiating team and the set of interactions with the other parties to the negotiations takes place within the framework of the red lines.

Yesterday, Reuters reported that the Vienna talks were close to a definite defeat, with the publication of news that according to the current practice of this media is not known.

Although the news content of this media seems to contradict the report of the Wall Street Journal and suggests that the hopes for reaching an agreement are running out, a little reflection on the approach of the two media shows that the goal of both is the same.

In the current context, the strategy of the Western media to force Iran to accept the illegal and extravagant demands of the United States is based on two main pillars.

On the one hand, attempts are made to show the need to lift sanctions on the IRGC, which is one of the red lines of the Islamic Republic, as the main node in not reaching an agreement, and on the other hand, the threat of a stalemate in negotiations if Iran insists on fulfilling this condition.


The fact is that the unresolved issues are not just about not lifting IRGC sanctions, and there are other issues that the United States is stubbornly refusing to resolve.

In addition, although the stalemate in the talks does not affect the current situation in Iran in various political, economic and social dimensions, so far none of the negotiating parties has concluded that the talks are on the verge of failure.

"We will continue our efforts through dialogue and consultation with our allies and partners in the European Union," State Department spokeswoman Ned Price said yesterday, welcoming efforts by EU co-ordinator Enrique Mora to conclude the Vienna talks.

He also expressed concern about the progress of Iran's peaceful nuclear activities, saying: "If we conclude that Iran's nuclear progress over the past three years has destroyed the benefits of non-proliferation, then we will choose another path."

Although the State Department spokesman has always tried to get the ball rolling to Iran, Western analysts close to the Vienna talks believe that the Biden administration, in the run-up to the November 8 midterm elections to the US Congress, is tolerating its opponents and intends to pay for it from Iran's pocket.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian stated: "The Vienna talks have not stopped, but continue in another process, through the exchange of written messages with the Americans through the EU representative in order to lift unilateral sanctions against us." Our goal in these talks is to reach a strong and lasting agreement.

The growing complexity of international developments centered on the Ukraine crisis should make the United States understand that the emphasis on continuing this process will make it harder to reach an agreement.

 Iran will never be willing to join an agreement that is devoid of JCPOA's economic benefits, given the difficult economic pressures following Trump's departure.

 The alternatives that the United States and its allies are calling for to increase pressure on Iran also have a propaganda function rather than an executive one.

While Iran's presence in export markets, especially in the energy sector, is growing despite tough US sanctions, and the global situation and the US position do not show the prospect of stopping this trend, Washington cannot hope to pay the price for not making a political decision, so ties to draft the path apart by putting pressure on Iran.

If Washington has the will and courage to pay the political costs of dealing with opponents of the agreement in the United States, a strong and lasting agreement can still be reached.
