US-Iran Inch Closer To A Nuclear Deal Despite Their Differences

United States And Iran Inch Closer To A Nuclear Deal Despite Their Differences

Iran and the United States of America want to revive the 2015 nuclear deal but both keep their hands crossed.
In this deal, there would be other things to consider such as Trump sanctions on Iran and two-year anniversary of the U.S. assassination of General Suleimani.

With all that on the page, the deal will likely not have any compromises from either side.
But the diplomatic talks of Iran and the USA in Vienna can still result in the success of the deal.

Sanctions exchanged between Tehran and Washington

To start with, Former President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018. In addition to that, he also imposed tough economic sanctions cutting off most of Iran’s oil revenues and international financial transactions.

The agenda behind Trump’s action was to pressurize Iran into a deal that reached beyond its nuclear program, thus, restricting its ballistic missiles and regional political and military activities.

However, The Biden administration has now indicated it would lock the 2015 nuclear deal without those strings attached.

On other hand, the Iranian Parliament placed largely symbolic sanctions on 51 Americans, many of them prominent political and military officials, for “terrorism” and “human rights violations,” in retaliation for the U.S. assassination of Iran’s top commander, Qassim Suleimani, two years ago.

Moving forward toward the deal amid the threats and blaming

Jake Sullivan, the U.S. national security adviser, warned Iran over the symbolic sanctions that it would “face severe consequences” if it attacked any Americans, including any of the 51 people.

The Iranians replied over the accord of the Nuclear deal and Trump’s sanctions that they would pursue only a return to the original conditions of the deal but initially demanded the lifting of all sanctions imposed by Mr Trump.

The two year anniversary of the U.S. assassination of General Suleimani saw many threats from the Iranian part
Ebrahim Raisi, the newly elected hard-line Iranian president, threatened former President Trump and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to stand trial in an impartial court and face “ghesas,” a term that in Islamic jurisprudence means an “eye for an eye.” Otherwise, he warned, people would take their own revenge.

But on the same note, Iranian officials were expressing a surprisingly optimistic view of the talks in Vienna, further in their eighth round, as the State Department was offering a more measured assessment.

All the while, Washington’s part in the deal remains more cautious than Tehran’s. Two senior State Department officials assured some modest progress in the talks, which had paused in June. Still, both officials did not forget to point out without going into specifics, that major aspects still needed to be addressed.
