According to News i Agency’s International Group, news sources reported on Thursday that the United States is seeking to postpone the next round of Vienna talks in order to coordinate with the new Israeli cabinet.
A source close to US President Joe Biden’s government told Reuters that Washington felt that the ongoing talks in Vienna to determine the status of the UN Security Council were worth delaying in order to coordinate with Israel.
Israel’s new cabinet plans to send a team of sanctions experts to Washington to discuss ways to better implement the Comprehensive Joint Action Plan and the sanctions that should be maintained against Iran.
The strategy is very different from the policy of former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who did not intend to engage with the administration of Joe Biden on the return of the United States to the UN Security Council, Reuters reported.
Last night, the “National” website reported, quoting informed sources, that “Robert Mali”, the US Special Representative for Iran and the US delegation, predict that a new round of talks on Borjam will be held in Vienna soon.
Also Tuesday, Politico reported that US officials had informed Iran that Joe Biden was unwilling to lift all of Donald Trump’s sanctions against Iran because he believed many of them were legal. .
Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid plans to meet with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in Rome on Sunday.
One of the questions Lapid is expected to ask Blinken is what he means by the phrase “better and stronger agreement” with the UN Security Council.
Hours earlier, the Axios website reported, quoting Israeli officials, that Tel Aviv intended to use diplomacy to influence the US government’s approach to Iran’s nuclear program.
Although Naftali Bennett and his cabinet, like Netanyahu, oppose a nuclear deal with Iran, Axius writes that engagement with the United States on the issue is on the agenda.
While in power, Benjamin Netanyahu made many attempts to overthrow Burjam, including former US President Donald Trump, to urge him to step down. He has repeatedly stressed that Trump has left the UN Security Council at his urging and is pursuing a policy of “maximum pressure” against Iran.
Trump and Netanyahu hoped that maximum pressure could persuade Iran to come to the negotiating table to negotiate a new agreement instead of Borjam.
Trump stepped down on January 20 this year, failing to achieve his anti-Iranian goals. In addition, he has been widely criticized in the United States for not having a strategy for Iran, for fomenting tensions with Iran, for removing the effects of sanctions for their overuse, and for advancing Iran’s nuclear program during his four years in the White House. it placed.
Joe Biden government officials have repeatedly explicitly acknowledged the failure of the maximum pressure policy, saying they intend to bring the United States back to BRICS but have so far refused to take the necessary steps to return to the agreement.
Washington says it is only willing to lift sanctions against Iran if the two sides return to the Security Council. Washington’s claim comes at a time when Iran’s commitments are somewhat verifiable, but verification of the lifting of sanctions takes at least three to six months.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has emphasized that, given that the United States has been a party to the agreement, it is Washington that must return to the agreement by lifting sanctions, and that the fulfillment of US obligations needs to be verified. Tehran, of course, has emphasized that it is not in a hurry to bring the United States back to the agreement.
