Iran abandons limit on storing enriched uranium, heavy water

Iran abandons limit on storing enriched uranium, heavy water

The Supreme National Security Council of Iran has issued a statement announcing Iran’s partial withdrawal from the JCPOA nuclear deal. It reads: “A year ago today, the United States of America withdrew from the JCPOA and abrogated the UN Security Council resolution by bullying against all known international norms and reinstated its unilateral, illegally sanctions on Iran. Regrettably, this evident bullying has not been addressed with any appropriate actions by the Security Council or the remaining JCPOA members. The IR of Iran has shown the utmost restraint over the past year and provided the other members with considerable opportunity to compensate for the consequences of the withdrawal by the United States. This show of goodwill and self-restraint by the Iranian people has remained unanswered and, apart from the issuance of political statements, there is still no operational mechanism available to compensate for US sanctions. Therefore, the Islamic Republic of Iran has no choice but to ‘partially reduce its obligations’ in order to secure its rights and restore the balance of demands by all parties in this agreement.”

Zarif: The US is seeking genocide in Iran

We offered this possibility last September in response to a [U.S.] request that came through the Swiss—that they were interested in engaging in humanitarian dialogue. We have not received any response after we made a positive reply, and I raised this proposal for a global exchange of prisoners including those who are in prison elsewhere as a result of U.S. request or U.S. pressure. I did not receive an official reply. There was a statement by the State Department that Iran can make a unilateral release, which is indicative of their approach to issues. That is, they simply want to make demands and expect the other side just to accept their demand without being prepared to reciprocate. That is the nub of the problem with this administration.

Israel faces uphill battle with Iran in Syria

Israel faces uphill battle with Iran in Syria

The ski slopes on Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights open for a brief period every winter. On January 20, an Israeli enjoying an afternoon ski was shocked to see a rocket launched by an Iron Dome air defense battery. It was one of two that streaked across the sky aimed at stopping an Iranian surface-to-surface missile fired from Syria at Israel. The recent flare-up in Israeli-Iranian tensions in Syria comes amid the planned U.S. withdrawal and the winding down of the war on ISIS. It threatens to spark a new conflict. On January 23, Russia warned Israel again about airstrikes in Syria. Yet Jerusalem insists, with Washington’s backing, that it can reduce Iran’s presence in Syria as well as degrade Iran’s weapons transfers to Hezbollah.
