TEHRAN (Iran News) – West’s Double Standard Policy. While the Western governments disrespect their obligations, they expect other countries to do so and when the countries do not obey, they start blame game and accusations , exactly what we now can see regarding Iran’s nuclear case.
If we have a look back at the nuclear talks in 2014 and the JCPOA deal in 2015, we can see that the Western governments have not fulfilled their pledges regarding their commitments to the JCPOA and despite this disrespect to the obligations, they are unable to tolerate the other party to put aside its voluntary obligations.
Since the U.S. pullout from the JCPOA, its European allies have stopped fulfilling their JCPOA obligations and have followed their boss, the U.S. Now that the Islamic Republic of Iran has put aside its voluntary obligations and has continued its peaceful nuclear programs, they have started crying foul and they continuously charge Iran with breaching its commitment. What a funny accusation.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly said that it is not after nuclear bomb and it is just after having nuclear fuel for its reactors and other peaceful consumptions, and it even accepted to stop its enrichment provided that the signatories of the JCPOA provide the country with enough nuclear fuel for its peaceful consumption. But what was the result of this concession? Nothing but the waste of time and energy because former U.S. President Donald Trump torn the agreement apart and left it without being punished, and unfortunately the Western allies followed Trump’s path practically although they were otherwise verbally.
Now that Iran has increased its enrichment stockpile, the U.S. and its allies have stepped up their pressures to bring Iran to the negotiation table for getting new concessions but this time they are facing a rocky opponent because now a revolutionary government is in the office in Tehran and it has good experience from the past and the JCPOA agreement, and it is not ready to give unilateral concession and is really after a win-win deal, something which was missed in the 2015 deal.
The interesting thing is that whenever the U.S. and its allies are in weak position, the International Atomic Energy (IAEA) is tasked to come to the rescue of them by raising some baseless allegations but this agency is not ready even one time to probe the allegations against Israel.
On Thursday a senior Iranian diplomat has reprimanded the UN nuclear agency IAEA chief for exonerating Israel from nuclear inspections over the contention that the regime is not a member of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
The rebuke came after IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi said in an interview that there is no talk about Israel’s nuclear program because the regime is not a signatory to the NPT and the degree of inspection that the UN’s nuclear agency has is limited to whatever Israeli officials declare.
“What is the advantage of being both a NPT member and fully implementing the Agency’s safeguards?” Iran’s ambassador to the international organizations in Vienna Kazem Gharibabadi asked in a tweet thread.
“Silence and negligence about Israel’s nuclear program sends a negative message to the NPT members that being a member equals accepting the robust verifications, while being outside the Treaty means to be free from any obligation and criticism, and even be rewarded,” he added.
In his interview, Grossi also said that Iran, as a party to the NPT, must observe its obligations under the treaty and must subject its nuclear sites to inspections and verifications.
“How could one see the IAEA as a serious, professional and impartial partner when it does not pursue evenly and justly the implementation of its safeguards regime for all its members?” Gharibabadi asked.
Israel, which pursues a policy of deliberate ambiguity about its nuclear weapons, is estimated to have 200 to 400 nuclear warheads in its arsenal.
The Israeli regime, the Middle East region’s sole nuclear arms possessor, has also assassinated seven Iranian nuclear scientists.
Neither the IAEA nor the United Nations have taken the Tel Aviv regime to task for its illegal activities aimed at endangering the regional and international peace and security.
But when it comes to the Islamic Republic of Iran, both IAEA and UN try to show their muscles while they keep silent against offences of other countries.
On Thursday, Ali Bagheri Kani, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and the country’s nuclear negotiator, in a meeting with Enrique Mora the European Union coordinator of nuclear talks, in Tehran, said there are serious doubts about the real will of the US to fulfill its obligations under the Iran nuclear deal.
Bagheri also criticized the inaction of the European parties in fulfilling their obligations under the Iran nuclear deal and stressed the need for them to act responsibly.
Although the Foreign Ministry of Iran after the meeting announced that Iran and remaining JCPOA signatories will soon begin their talks, but it seems talks on the JCPOA are useless because the West is after getting more concessions from Iran and it is something against the policy of Tehran.
Iran will be ready to any talks over the JCPOA in an equal condition and without any pre-condition and only on the issues inside the JCPOA and nothing more than it, something that the U.S. and its allies are trying to impose it.
So the West should put aside its double standard policy and come to the negotiation table with realistic issues and not with excessive demands because any excessive demand will be repelled by Tehran as the country is marching ahead strongly with progressing in many fields and cutting its independence on any arrogant and bully country.
