The dictatorial Iranian regime, after the recent threats issued to the United States and specifically against former President Trump, announced its affinity with Joe Biden and in a public message invited the new administration to return to the controversial nuclear pact, which was abandoned by the United States in 2018 precisely because it harmed the interests of the nation and directly benefited the Iranian government.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a televised Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 19, announced that the decision is now on the side of the new U.S. administration, Axios reported.
“If Washington returns to Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, we will also fully respect our commitments under the pact,” Rouhani said.
Iranian officials also demanded that the United States must first lift sanctions on Iranian oil exports and the Iranian banking system before moving forward.
Iran will also demand compensation for the alleged damages it has suffered as a result of former President Donald Trump and the United States withdrawing from the pact. And it also announced that it will take steps to ensure that a new administration does not dismantle the upcoming deal.
Over the past few years, relations between the Iranian regime and the United States experienced moments of high tension. Mainly because of the limits imposed by the Trump administration against the encroachment of the regime and mainly because Iran was irresponsible on the issue of uranium, and the manufacture of nuclear weapons.
Specifically in May 2018, President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear pact aroused the regime’s ire.
Starting with the controversial pact that Iran ratified with the Obama administration in 2015, the international community began to lift sanctions that punished the Iranian economy in exchange for imposing limitations on its nuclear program.
But as defended by the Trump administration, the deal left in place very tough sanctions against Iran in exchange for a very weak limitation on its nuclear activity, and without any limits on the regime’s other perverse behaviors, including its sinister activities in Syria, Yemen and other parts of the world.
At the beginning of January 2020 Iran announced that it started enriching uranium up to 20% in a subway facility, provoking a strong tension with both the United States and the countries of the region that expressed alert, taking into account that the quoted percentage exceeds the allowed one and approaches the one needed for the production of weapons.
To the recent news about the enriched uranium production by Iran, under suspicion that it could be used for the development of nuclear weapons, must be added the statements of Iranian officials during the last few days, who suggested that they will try to assassinate President Trump in revenge for Soleimani’s death.
Ebrahim Raisi, head of Iran’s judiciary, specifically suggested that there will be “harsh revenge” against the United States.
“Americans should expect the harsh revenge,” Raisi said. “The armed resistance forces will determine the place and time. The Islamic nation knows at what time and where this revenge will be carried out. The enemy must know that their life will be very difficult from now on. The resistance movement will make the enemy’s life very difficult, in revenge for the blood of the martyr Soleimani. One of the aspects of the harsh revenge will be to expel the Americans from the region.”

Iran announced its interest to negotiate with Biden a new agreement, which could really endanger not only the United States, but the whole world in case nobody manages to place a limit on Iran’s nuclear production or the agreements include guidelines detrimental to the United States as expected.
