Yesterday, European Union Foreign Minister Joseph Borrell met his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, in New Delhi, in an attempt to urge Iran to adhere to the nuclear agreement, and finally stop the announced "setbacks." According to a press statement issued by his office in Brussels, Joseph insisted Borel, during th



Yesterday, European Union Foreign Minister Joseph Borrell met his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, in New Delhi, in an attempt to urge Iran to adhere to the nuclear agreement and finally stop the announced "retreats".

According to a press statement issued by his office in Brussels, Joseph Burrell insisted, during the meeting, that "the European Union remains steadfast in its concern to maintain the agreement, which is more important than ever, given the dangerous escalation in the Middle East and the Gulf region."

The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported that Zarif called on the three countries "Britain, France and Germany", during the meeting with Josep Borrell, on the sidelines of the Fifth International "Riceina" Dialogue Forum in New Delhi "to improve its behavior towards Iran and the nuclear agreement." He also criticized "the Europeans' failure to implement their obligations towards the nuclear agreement."

This comes two days after Britain, France and Germany announced the activation of the dispute settlement mechanism with Iran, after violating the obligations stipulated in the nuclear agreement, which was reached in 2015.

The eventual activation of the mechanism allows for the reimposition of sanctions against Tehran.

In Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a speech broadcast on state television yesterday that his country is now enriching uranium in greater quantities than it was before it reached the nuclear agreement with world powers in 2015.

Rouhani added: “We enrich uranium more than before reaching the agreement. The pressure has increased on Iran, but we are continuing to make progress, "Reuters reported.

Tehran is gradually reducing its obligations under the nuclear deal, in response to Washington's withdrawal from it in 2018, and its reimposition of sanctions that curtail Iran's economy.

The Iranian president rejected the idea of ​​British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to replace the nuclear agreement between Iran and the major countries with one supported by the United States.

The Iranian president announced that he was working "daily to prevent war." "The government is working daily to prevent a military confrontation or war," Rouhani said, adding, "For me, it is a daily concern."

This comes after Tehran bombed two bases in Iraq on January 8, which the US military is using in response to the killing of the Quds Force commander in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, General Qassem Soleimani.

In his speech, Rouhani stressed that the Iranian response, which had caused major material damage, but not casualties according to the US military, has strengthened Iran's deterrent power in the face of "threats" from US President Donald Trump.

Rouhani has also defended the policy of openness with the world he launched since his first election in 2013, as he faces criticism from hard-line conservatives. He said that the dialogue between Iran and the world is difficult, "but it is possible."

The Washington Post reported the day before yesterday that the Trump administration had threatened to impose 25% duties on European car imports, if Britain, France and Germany did not formally accuse Iran of violating the nuclear agreement.

"The appeasement is confirmed," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote in a tweet on Twitter. The three European countries handed over the rest of the deal to avoid Trump's new duties. It will not work, my friends. You only open his appetite. Do you remember the bully student in your high school? ”, As he put it.

The Iranian foreign minister criticized what he described as the "severe subordination of the Europeans" to the United States, considering that he claimed that Britain, France and Germany "sold" the nuclear agreement to save themselves from the customs duties that the American president always threatens to impose.

"The three European countries have sacrificed this agreement to get rid of Trump's new tariffs," Zarif wrote on Twitter.

He stressed that "this does not work, but it will be increased by (Trump) voracity."

British-Canadian honored victims of a Ukrainian airliner shot down by Iran

Yesterday, the Canadian and British Foreign Ministers honored those who were killed in a passenger plane shot down by Iran, last week, before talks between the countries affected by the accident to discuss the reaction to it.

Canadian Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champaign and British Dominic Rapp participated with the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Sweden and Afghanistan in lighting candles to mourn the victims at the Canadian High Commission in London, and they stopped a minute's silence before the meeting started.

The five countries had citizens on board the crashed plane that crashed on January 8, shortly after leaving Tehran en route to Kiev. The five countries formed an international response group to coordinate their next steps, and Ukraine and Canada raised the possibility of suing Iran.

Iran admitted on Saturday that it had shot down the plane of the Ukrainian international airlines by mistake, after initially denying any links to the accident. All 176 passengers on the plane were killed, including 57 Canadians. London- Reuters
