Why should Iran talk to Trump?

Vali Asr writes in the Atlantic that on August 6, Donald Trump’s administration reimposed economic sanctions on Iran that Barack Obama’s administration had lifted when it signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in 2015, the anticipated next step following Trump’s decision to leave the deal in May. Since then, the Trump administration has talked about bringing more economic pressure on Tehran not only to end its nuclear ambitions, but also to curb its regional influence and even weaken the Islamic Republic’s hold on power, which led many to see U.S. policy as one aimed at regime change.

US and Iran - Signs of a war

Marc Cancian writes in Forbes that the last week has seen many reports about Iranian naval exercises in the Persian Gulf.

The president has pledged to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran (technically called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA), has reimposed sanctions on Iran, and appears to be in a tweeting feud with the Iranian leadership.

BBC Monitoring: Tweets supporting Warsaw Summit are artificial

2019/02/13

BBC Monitoring has tweeted: “Analysis of more than 14,000 tweets from last month which used #WeSupportPolandSummit, found that the majority of posts originated from just 8 accounts. The summit is largely viewed as a US bid to deter other nations from cooperating with Iran. Anti-establishment chatter has used the hashtag #WeSupportPolandSummit. The desired effect appears to be to artificially create a trend which hints at popular support for the summit and - by extension - widespread resentment towards the Iranian establishment. This research is part of a wider investigation into opposition social media activity by Iranians.”
