The White House recently admitted that its talks for a potentially renewed nuclear deal with Iran have permanently stalled, according to various officials in Israel.
Apparently, the White House is suddenly “much more willing” to declare that it has achieved nothing but defeat relative to times in the past.
Over the past six weeks, conversations have amplified between Western powers and Iran, as oil prices have surged in the wake of Putin’s invasion. The main reason that talks have stalled is due to the fact that Tehran has repeatedly demanded for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to be removed from the Foreign Terrorist Organizations list, which the White House has been reticent to do.
In remarks to Israel’s Hayom media publication, an official declared that “the possibility that the parties will sign an agreement in the foreseeable future is dwindling at an exponential rate.”
Furthermore, according to an Axios report that was just released on Monday, the White House has commenced “discussing a scenario” that accounts for a failure to agree with Iran on key fundamental issues.
In an official statement, the Israeli prime minister’s office stated, “Israel has clarified its position on the issue: The IRGC is the largest terrorist organization in the world.”
In response, Iran demanded a new meeting in Vienna, Austria, “as soon as possible.”
“It is clear that if the U.S. had given the right answers to the remaining issues … everyone would have been in Vienna by now,” Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh declared.
On Monday, Jake Sullivan, the current National Security Advisor for the United States, met alongside his Israeli counterpart, Eyal Hulata, according to a report from The Times of Israel.
The Vienna talks began roughly one year ago, and the purpose of the talks is to ostensibly return the United States to the table with Iran and negotiate nuclear agreements in exchange for removing sanctions induced by the Trump administration.
