Bahrain supports Pompeo's list of demands for Iran

High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini answers journalists' questions before a ministerial meeting of EU  E3 and EU  E3 with Iran at the EU headquarters in Brussels

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanded that Iran halt all uranium enrichment, stop its ballistic-missile program and give nuclear inspectors access to the entire country, in a speech detailing the US approach now that President Donald Trump has withdrawn from the 2015 nuclear deal.

In announcing the new USA strategy towards Iran, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday warned Washington "will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime" unless it complied with a list of 12 conditions, which must be met before any new deal can be reached.

Under the new demands, Iran must declare the military dimensions of its nuclear programme and "permanently and verifiably abandon such work in perpetuity", stop uranium enrichment and allow worldwide inspectors "unqualified access to all sites throughout the entire country".

"We understand our re-imposition of sanctions and the coming pressure campaign on the Iranian regime will pose financial and economic difficulties for a number of our friends", Pompeo said. "The leaders in Tehran will have no doubt about our seriousness", Pompeo said in a speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank. Pompeo further called on Iran to halt its ballistic missile program. "At this milestone, we have to ask: What has the Iranian revolution given the Iranian people?" "It's on the table, we're not going to rule out anything necessary in order to address Iran", Manning said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demonstrated as much with 100,000 hidden Iranian documents that Israel found. Critics yawn, but some of those showed Iranian determination to roll ahead with its weaponizing ambition, if at a slower pace. "Are these two not responsible for wasting Iranian lives throughout the Middle East?" "You should know that we will hold those doing prohibited business in Iran to account". The French energy giant Total announced last week that it would pull out of a gas deal it signed with Iran and begin winding down its current operations in the country if it did not receive a waiver from the USA allowing it to go ahead with the projects. The negotiators of the deal were the U.S., China, the European Union, Iran, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom.

And despite those moves, Iran says Europe's support for the JCPOA is not enough. The United States' European allies oppose the president's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. He said the United States would take "all necessary steps" to contain Iran, but declined to provide specifics.

Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline raises intelligence concerns say US
Early last month, before the Merkel was on an official visit to come to the US , it became known that one of the key topics of the talks will be "Nord stream 2".

The Secretary of State also warned European businesses which work with Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions that they will be held "to account".

The Trump administration will have a team of specialists traveling the world, explaining the administration's policy to American allies which, Pompeo said, will eventually get on board with Donald Trump's plan.

European nations, as well as Russian Federation and China, are vowing to stand by the deal - formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - that Iran reached with six world powers and are trying to insulate their companies from the promised sanctions even though that's an uphill effort.

On Thursday, the European Commission said it would launch the process of activating a law that bans European companies and courts from complying with USA sanctions against Iran. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson remarked: "The prospect of a new jumbo Iran treaty is going to be very, very hard". "At the end of the day, the Iranian people will put a time line" on their government, he said.

He also demanded Iran release all U.S. citizens imprisoned on a variety of charges, including espionage.

"US diplomacy sham is merely a regression to old habits: imprisoned by delusions & failed policies-dictated by corrupt Special Interest-it repeats the same wrong choices and will thus reap the same ill rewards".
