Iran suspended parts of the implementation of JCPOA
#1
Iran has informed the five remaining signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal of its decision to suspend the implementation of some of its commitments under the multinational agreement, exactly one year after the United States unilaterally abandoned the international document.

The ambassadors of the countries remaining in the deal — France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China — on Wednesday received a letter penned by President Rouhani on the suspension of some of Iran's commitments under the accord, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The letter has been handed over by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi to the ambassadors of Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany, who had been invited to the Foreign Ministry. The document elaborates on the details of the decision taken by Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), which is chaired by President Rouhani.

The SNSC’s order is aimed at “safeguarding the Iranian nation’s security and interests” in the line with the country’s rights under articles 26 and 36 of the JCPOA, the letter read.

It says Tehran has exercised utmost self-restraint and patience since the US’s exit from the deal last May and also given the remaining signatories “considerable” time at their own request to compensate for Washington’s absence and guarantee Iran’s interests.

Despite Iran’s patience, the other side of the deal has failed to take any “practical measures” to blunt the impact of the economic sanctions that were re-imposed against Tehran by the US following its withdrawal, the letter said.

The Islamic Republic is thus entitled to restore the balance between its rights and obligations under the JCPOA, and has no option but to “reduce its commitments” within the framework of the deal, it added.

At the current stage, the letter said, Iran will no longer consider itself committed to the limits agreed under the deal on its stocks of enriched uranium and heavy water stocks.

During the Ahmadinejad era, Iran was all about China. Hundreds of Chinese companies were invited to work and share project work throughout Iran. However the performance of the Chinese companies left much to be desired. So many cases of mismanagement, lack of meeting milestones, schedule slippage........blah blah......it was endless. It's fair to say Iran had an unpleasant experience with China. Flagship projects like Azadegan, Yadavaran and many S.Pars phases remained in limbo. The Chinese didn't cut the mustard. Iran also accused China of dumping its goods as payment in Iran which Iran didn't require. Suffice to say Iran is very cautious of China now.

Now coming back to this topic, I wonder what Iran seeks to gain by withdrawing from the JCPOA at this juncture? It's a busted ass deal already. However by totally rescinding it would alienate the EU also. Enriching Uranium is not going to solve Iran's trade drama nor would the sanctions go away either.

Yes you are right about the experience with Chinese companies in Iran.

Iran doesn't seek to withdraw from the Barjam (yet), just to pressure EU to make some progress with INSTEX and increase leverage for future (e.g. under Ahmadinejad Iran had 20,000+ centrifuges thus the US was forced to accept a level of enrichment >0). If the EU cannot give Iran any of the economic benefit then the Barjam is dead anyway and why should Iran be sanctioned and comply with the deal? This doesn't make sense, the EU has to decide if it wants to uphold the deal or not. They have wasted too much time already. But I agree that leaving BARJAM is not in Iran's interest before 2020 whilst there is still a small chance the US can join again in 2020 if a Dem wins. But US economy is strong so Trump has strong chance...

There will be a phased withdrawal by Iran of the JCPOA accords. There is no chance of war between the US and Iran either. Just posturing and bluffing by both sides. Enriching Uranium won't cut the economic mustard for Iran. This is just huff n puff. However, Iran can up the ante considerably by deploying its forces near the Golan. Now that will absolutely get their attention, guaranteed! but we all know such maneuvers and war gaming require big money and a military commitment with very clear eyed goals. This might very well be Iran's next step to pressure the US to rescind the sanctions drama.

One thing is very clear here, if Iran can't export its oil, then Iran will move 'physically' closer to Israel, as that is something Iran can do and start the obvious and automatic harassment of the IDF. I bet the IRGC has been instructed to act if the economic situation of Iran deteriorates.

Deploying forces near the Golan is a stupid idea. How does this improve Iran's economy? The EU doesn't care about the Golan and Israel has total supremacy in that region so you would be sending people to die for nothing.

Apparently Iran has given the signal for proxies in Iraq to engage with US troops

This is exactly what the US has been waiting and hoping for...

Its the only way left to negotiate the sanctions drama. Unless Iran confronts Israel and evicts it from the golan, the US won't negotiate or rescind the sanctions.

China is still our number one trade partner and they have shown their partnership with us during hard times by resisting U.S/West sanctions against us .

ppl think U.S got super power status by forcing her dollar on world as the global currency . there is some truth in that but if you think about the ways they keep U.S dollar as the main currency is to keep best way of world trade ( sea routes ) under control with military force .

China is slowly forcing U.S out of her seas . Iran is trying to to same without any success so far . ( taking full control of Persian gulf which i'm against this move )

If you want to look it from another perspective, China's "belt and road initiative " means we can't challenge West/U.S at sea so lets create alternative ways of trade
