Iran’s President Opposes Bill That Would Suspend UN Inspections, Increase Enrichment

Can you guess why Hassan Rouhani opposes it?

Iran’s president opposes bill that would boost enrichment

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday expressed his opposition to a bill approved by parliament the previous day to suspend U.N. inspections and boost uranium enrichment, saying it would be “harmful” to diplomatic efforts aimed at restoring the 2015 nuclear deal and easing U.S. sanctions.

The tug-of-war over the bill, which gained momentum after the killing of a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist last month, reflects the rivalry between Rouhani, a relative moderate, and hard-line lawmakers who dominate parliament and favor a more confrontational approach to the West.

The bill would suspend U.N. inspections and require the government to resume enriching uranium to 20% if European nations fail to provide relief from crippling U.S. sanctions on the country’s oil and banking sectors. That level falls short of the threshold needed for nuclear weapons but is higher than that required for civilian purposes.

Speaking at a Cabinet meeting, Rouhani said his administration, “does not agree with that and considers it harmful for the trend of diplomatic activities.” He implied the lawmakers were positioning themselves ahead of elections planned for June.

“Today, we are more powerful in the nuclear field than at any other time,” he added.

First, why are they more powerful than ever? Shouldn’t they have pretty much given up their nuclear weapons programs? Isn’t that what the Iran deal was all about? Or so we were told. Doesn’t it do that? Even with the U.S. out, shouldn’t Iran still be complying with the E.U. nations who are hooking Iran up?

Second, it sure looks like Rouhani figures China Joe will be a big pushover, rejoining and removing all the sanctions, and, surely Rouhani will demand more from China Joe to make up for what Trump did, right?

Later Wednesday, Iranian state TV said the constitutional watchdog, the Guardian Council, also approved the bill and formally sent it to Rouhani who now has has five working days to officially sign off on a bill to make it executable.

Even if Rouhani were to change his mind and approve the bill, it is unlikely to have an impact as Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has the final say on all major policies, including those related to the nuclear program.

Under the law, if the president refuses to sign the bill, it will be automatically singed by the parliament speaker to go into effect.

Is this a ploy designed to allow Rouhani to get more out of Biden, saying “hey, these people want to do this stuff, I want to work with you, but, you have to give me something more”? And the Israel haters and Iran apologists in Joe’s circle and the Democrat party will take Iran’s side and say “give them what they want for Peace In Our Time.”

    Get the pallets of cash ready if the Democommie war mongers get in charge.

    When one combines:
    Amorality;
    Vengefulness;
    And Stupidity;
    …in a single movement, the consequences are guaranteed to be dire. And the contemporary American Left is rich in all three.

    Everyone in DC knows its all about giving payouts to IRAN to keep the tensions in the Middle East ablaze with hatred.

    Iran is to the middle east what Elwood is to this blog. The sole function of both is to fuel tension and raise anger and ire in order to show to the world that we need more troops in the Middle East. We need to kill more kids and moms cause daddy’s a terrorist.

    Joe Biden says he will keep WRAY the FBI director. Enough said. The bastard’s not going to investigate anything Fraud Related. A perfect example of unbridled power vested in these agencies that serve the American public but somewhere about 250 years ago they forgot who pays their salary each month.

    Oh and more Good news for all you leftists out there that think Biden is on your team.

    The left is alarmed at Biden’s EPA pick? Critics say she has ignored the concerns of minorities and lower-income people, who suffer the worst consequences of toxic air pollution.(THIS SCREAMS FAR< FAR leftist ideology.)

    Environmental groups and activists who have concentrated their efforts on cleaning up the most polluted regions in the state say she has repeatedly ignored their advice and pursued policies that permit fossil fuel facilities to continue emitting.

    Them Billionaires love them some Oil and Gas and CO2 and so does BIDEN who is OWNED by BILLIONAIRES.

    On the photoshopped mask Joe Biden is wearing: it’s always funny to see a “Я” in place of an “r”, but in Russian, that’s actually a vowel, “ya,” a palatalized form of “ah”. Every Russian vowel has hard and soft variants. A Russian R is actually “P”, as in CCCP, which we would transliterate as SSSR.

    Teach wondered: First, why are they more powerful than ever? Shouldn’t they have pretty much given up their nuclear weapons programs? Isn’t that what the Iran deal was all about? Or so we were told.

    You do recall that trump withdrew from the agreement meaning that Iran was free to pursue their nuclear programs.

    It could be that Rouhani wants to have the sanctions relaxed in exchange for stopping their nuclear program. It’s also possible that Rouhani sees the respect North Korea gained from trump and the US after gaining nuclear weapons.
