The arrest of European citizens clouded the nuclear deal talks
- Near East Unprecedented Arab-Israeli Summit for “New Regional Architecture”
Enrique Mora Mouni was seen in all the pictures. Josep Borrell’s right-hand man and the EU coordinator for nuclear talks with Iran arrived in Tehran on Wednesday morning to make a final effort to facilitate a deal that would allow the nuclear deal to be revived. As they landed in the capital, Iranian media had reported the arrest of two European nationals for “attempting to spread anarchy”.
Bad news doesn’t come alone. Last week, shortly after a Swedish court ruled in a trial for crimes against humanity against a former Iranian official, Tehran announced the death penalty against Swedish Iranian Ahmedreza Jalali. Although Iranian justice was quick to emphasize that it was not ‘eye for eye’, Sweden also reported the arrest of a compatriot at the same time. It is not known whether he is one of the two Europeans mentioned above.
The set of events appears to be Iran’s pulse for many European capitals, when it is verified that the poor progress of talks to revive the nuclear deal that came into force in 2016 and sanctions reimposed by the US in 2018. Hardly any effect. In response to the sanctions, Tehran abandoned several commitments made with the signing of the agreement, which has led to the uranium enrichment program exceeding the agreed limit.
,We are still hopeful that some sort of settlement will be done within a reasonable time frame.Although we have to accept that the window of opportunity can close at any time,” International Atomic Energy Agency Secretary General Rafael Grossi admitted this week. , Ali Bagheri, Mora’s mission was to remove the rough edges that prevent the settlement from closing.
Rupees Iran insists on removing the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps from its list of US foreign terrorist organizations as a condition of closing a deal. A demand that Joe Biden has refused to date because of its high political cost. It was his predecessor Trump who ordered such a designation. The strategy of “absolute pressure” on Iran Which only caused increased economic pressure on the Iranians and more belligerence from their government.
Membership of the Guardian on this list has many implications because, beyond their most critical role as executors of hard-core interests of power inside and outside the country, their members are integrated into the political system and part of many parastatal privates. companies. The designation was not linked to Washington’s nuclear sanctions package, which last year kicked off Yemen’s Iranian-backed Hut movement.
As with all other aspects of the nuclear dispute, the designation disagreement appears to have become the latest and biggest obstacle in getting back on track with the Comatose nuclear treaty. And amid the clash of positions, the confrontation with Sweden. In 2019, Swedish police arrested 61-year-old Hamid Nouri as soon as he stepped into Stockholm. Under universal jurisdiction, the prosecutor’s office accused him of playing an “active role” in alleged human rights abuses.
According to the indictment, Noori has been a deputy prosecutor in Gohardasht jail. According to the complainants, that prison was one of the scenes of the 1988 mass executions of prisoners for “political reasons”. Many of those killed in the trial “without guarantees” belonged to the Islamic-Marxist Iranian armed group People’s Mujahideen (MEK), which fought against Iranians on behalf of Saddam Hussein during the recently ended war against Iraq . Noori may face life in prison.
And although the Iranian judiciary has assured that its decision has nothing to do with the other, human rights organizations believe Ahmadreza Jalali’s execution order is a “retaliation” for Nouri’s possible sentencing. Jalali was arrested in 2016 during an academic visit and charged with spying for Israel. Fresh arrests have been added to the announcement. All the pressure has fallen on Enrique Mora’s shoulders.
