French President Emmanuel Macron traveled to Washington on Monday, April 23, to discuss various issues, including Iran Nuclear Deal known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, with President Donald Trump.

On Monday the US ambassador Christopher Ford in a nonproliferation campaign at a news conference in Geneva called the Iranian regime a real long-term challenge to the nuclear weapon nonproliferation regime.

As President Trump’s 120-day deadline for fixing Iran nuclear deal gets closer, European countries are focusing on Iranian regime’s missile program and its regional intervention, calling on the regime to stop both.Meanwhile, the missile attack by US, France and UK on Bashar Assad’s chemical weapons facilities in Syria has extremely scared Iranian regime officials.

The Iranian Ministry of Energy revealed in its annual report that Iran’s nominal power generation capacity increased by 3% in the previous fiscal year to around 78.9 GW.This report seems positive at first, but, importantly, the figures are only nominal. The country’s actual power generation capacity is less than 68.5 GW, mainly due to ageing power plants.

 

Approaching the President Tramp’s announced deadline to ‘fix’ the Iran Nuclear deal, questions are raised about the fate of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. With a brief look at the history of the foundation and policies of the Iranian regime, Abdolrahman Mahabadi, a political writer, offers an accurate analysis of the issue.

According to Bloomberg, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Wednesday that the U.S. may impose “very strong” sanctions on Iran.He talked about the primary and secondary sanctions that would have an important impact on the Iranian economy.The source added that the Trump administration has accused Iran of fomenting instability and violence across the Mideast, and

Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of the Iranian regime, in response to a possible withdrawal by the United States from Iran nuclear deal aka the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, said if the order is announced by senior officials of the regime, it would take 4 days for Iran to enrich uranium at its nuclear reactors to 20 percent.

With the announcement of a new Secretary of State and a new national security adviser, many have said that the odds of President Donald Trump pulling out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement have increased.Furthermore, it seems very unlikely that the European parties to the deal – the United Kingdom, France and Germany – will be able to guarantee and address the changes that Trump requested.

According to diplomats Reuters reported that the European Union ambassadors discussed new possible sanctions against the Iranian regime on Wednesday, March 28. According to the report, the debates came after the suggestion of Britain, France, and Germany that they might decide to impose sanctions next month at a meeting of the foreign ministers.

Statements made by European officials over the past month suggest they’ve adopted a new policy with regard to the Iranian regime and the United States, in such a way that it could significantly change the situation for Iran.“We knew that Trump would seek to align Europe with his policies and would put all his efforts towards that end. Nonetheless, we never took a positive step forward.
