U.S. Gone; Iran Acquitted
U.S. Special Representative to Iran Brian Hook recently and in a meeting at the Zionist-lobbied Foundation for Defense of Democracies has said, “Iran was behind the attacks at Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities and this issue is not confined to Iran and the U.S. When Iran attacks at the biggest oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, it is a universal problem which needs an international response.”

Hours after Hook’s false claims, Bloombeg reported that the U.N. investigators have been unable to trace Saudi Aramco attack to Iran which happened in September 2019, adding that they couldn’t yet verify U.S. and Saudi claims that Iran was behind the strikes.
In this report, U.N. experts also blamed the U.S. for breaching the UN Resolution 2231 by pulling out of the JCPOA and it was like pouring cold water on the U.S. and its three allies which have planned to invoke “snap back” sanctions into place under the Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter.
On September 23, three European countries, with a tangible siding with U.S. President Donald Trump’s policies, unanimously called for some changes in the JCPOA. UK, Germany and France in a joint statement urged Iran to resume long-term negotiations on its nuclear, missile programs and regional policies.
Europe’s pressure on Iran for keeping the country in a passive condition and fulfilling its unilateral obligations regarding the JCPOA without taking the least advantage of the deal which has been stipulated in the JCPOA is totally evident and the statement made it more obvious.
Europeans, which have failed to fulfill their obligations regarding the JCPOA to make ineffective the negative impacts of the U.S. sanctions, believe that despite reimposition of the U.S. sanctions, Iran should remain committed to its JCPOA obligations.
These countries have recently threatened Iran implicitly that they might invoke “snap back” and revive international sanctions on Iran.
That the U.N does not bow to the U.S. cruel threats and also Europe, and says Iran is entitled to benefit from the JCPOA by referring to 15 reports by the IAEA which were all in favor of Iran’s measures, actually makes “snap back” mechanism ineffective which is a lever in hands of signatories of the JCPOA to threaten Iran for referring its case to the UNSC.
The U.S. and Europe’s disgrace during the UN report indicates another significant meaning that it strengthens China and Russia’s supportive tools in positive approach towards Iran.
New EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell in his recent visit to Paris and during meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and during a joint press conference expressed his concern over the future of JCPOA, reiterated that if Iran took its new step in scaling back from the JCPOA in January, it would endanger the deal.
Since May 2019 and almost on the anniversary of the U.S. unilateral and illegal pullout from the JCPOA, Iran has announced that it will gradually reduce its obligations regarding the nuclear deal.
Since then Iran has suspended its obligations regarding the ceiling for its uranium enrichment, heavy water, uranium production and restriction of research and nuclear development program. The country has reiterated that this trend will continue till the last stage of its JCPOA obligations.
Iran’s political strategy in signing the JCPOA indicates the Supreme Leader’s wise and smart leadership in his full trust to the government’s negotiating team.
U.S. unilateral pullout of the JCPOA as well as insidious compliance by the Western countries in the nuclear talks and reimposition of cruel sanctions have led to a united approach in the country in dealing with the West and this unity has blown a fresh spirit into the resistance approach in the region. Today the U.N. has been forced to admit openly and tomorrow countries one by one would follow it and the disgrace and inefficiency of the West would be exposed more and more.
