Discussions with Iran on nuclear power are restarting

After more than five months, the talks in Vienna on Iranian nuclear power between Tehran and the United States and the other five allied powers that signed the 2015 Treaty (China, Russia, France, United Kingdom and Germany) are resumed today, which was later disregarded for the unilateral US exit of Donald Trump. But the prevailing climate, observers recorded by the international media note, is one of general pessimism.

US President Joe Biden has changed his policy from his predecessor and would like a return to dialogue to put Iran’s nuclear development plan, now governed by ultra-conservative President Ebrahim Raisi, under international control.

Tehran a few days ago reiterated that it did not want to give up its nuclear program, criticizing the International Atomic Energy Agency (Aiea) for alleged “bias” and on Friday announced a further increase in uranium enrichment, also arousing outrage for the suppression of the water shortage riots in Isfahan. Tehran will send a new delegation of negotiators and reiterates its demand for an end to all sanctions.

Biden, Politico writes today, is ready to stand up and quit if the dialogue to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) fails to make progress. “Of course, Iran’s failure to cooperate is a bad sign of its seriousness for a successful conclusion of our negotiations,” the US State Department said on Wednesday. The United States, CNN recalls, if the negotiations fail, they are ready for “other options”.

As for the other five countries, members of the 5 + 1 group with the USA, that is the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, the goal is to start again from where the negotiations had stopped, but they will have to deal with the unknown factor of the new Iranian administration, turned decidedly towards the hard line with the hawk Raisi, in office since last August.
