ALBAWABA – So what is happening with the Iran nuclear deal? Nobody really knows despite the fact that hardliner Ibrahim Raisi has been now in the presidential seat in Tehran since early August.
Iran’s leaders know that US will not exercise a military option against Iran’s nuclear facilities should negotiations fail— FNS Saif (@fnsalsaif) August 23, 2021
Iran is now fully engaged in nuclear blackmail against US meaning that US will allow Iran to acquire enough uranium to build nuclear bomb in the coming weeks https://t.co/nGKKL9EF3S
Both sides – the Americans and Iranians - want the deal revived but nobody is yet moving.
The stupid nuclear deal that #Obama signed, which was trash, is falling on its face. Iran is ramping up nuclear research exponentially. Now we’re the joke of the Middle East because Biden pulled us from Afghanistan? WE ARE REPEATING VIETNAM…..— Rage Fueled (@Psycho_Sadie) August 22, 2021
Washington says the ball is in the Iranian court and it must make the first move. But Tehran, with its usual patience, wants to take its time and ponder what ‘pounds of flesh’ to use a Shakespearian term it wants. After all, it was ex-president Donald Trump who took the US out of the deal in 2018 to the dismay of the Europeans, Russians and Chinese.
Biden and his administration must be removed from office pure&simple NOW. Before they give Iran a nuclear weapon. https://t.co/GI72OBSOn1— just a citizen Kenneth. (@KennethLuzier) August 22, 2021
But don’t wait Iran. The longer you wait the longer probable changes are demanded which may incidentally be in your favor.
Recently the US Special Envoy for Iran Robert Malley, who was appointed to kick start the Iran nuclear deal, said some interesting comments. He pointed that while Washington wants to revive the nuclear agreement, it might be looking for a better deal, which is what Iran wants, by the way.
In warning that Iran could turn the Middle East nuclear, the US implies that the region is nuclear-free now – but Israel already has nuclear weapons. This undercuts America’s 'commitment' to nuclear nonproliferation & distorts the debate over Iran. https://t.co/vKVAp1lE5Y— Hollywood, Health & Society (@HollywdHealth) August 22, 2021
He added however he has alternatives up his sleeves but that mean the US is in favor of scrapping the 2015 deal for a better one to keep Iran in check no doubt.
MbS transformed Saudi foreign policy particularly w/respect to Israel which he sees as a valuable potential ally against the threat from Iran.

That of course, means more negotiations and longer time wasted which could be music to the ears of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE who have never been happy with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and want to quash it.
Israel sees little chance of Iran under Raisi returning to nuclear deal: Bennett's government has been trying to harness the United States to promote dramatic steps against Tehran, which is expected to top the agenda of the prime minister's… https://t.co/GqDC0OWyEv Haaretz pic.twitter.com/tqJ3XqPyIV— Jewish Community (@JComm_NewsFeeds) August 11, 2021
