Can Tehran, Russia and Europe Sideline Washington to Save the Iran Deal?

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivers remarks on the Trump administration's Iran policy at the Heritage Foundation in Washington

Netanyahu said that Pompeo in his speech echoed Trump's strong positions regarding Iran: that there should be tough economic sanctions and no Iranian nuclear enrichment, and that the Islamic Republic must leave Syria.

The Iranians are unlikely to go along with any of Pompeo's demands, including a stop to uranium enrichment and ballistic missile tests, and allowing global inspectors access to all sites. Iran has been lobbying for the European Union to make direct deposits into Iran's Central Bank to pay for Iranian oil, Cañete said.

"We believe this is the right policy".

Iran foe Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed Pompeo's speech, and urged the rest of the world to follow suit. Pompeo called on Iran to halt missile development, "release all USA citizens", withdraw from Syria, and cease support for groups which the USA considers to be "terrorist", namely Hezbollah. The administration will then need to contemplate whether it is really willing to declare economic warfare on our own allies to force them out of a deal which, for now, Iran is in compliance with. Instead of geniality, what we've received from Iran is threats to wipe out Israel, the harassment of the USA military to the point of taking hostages and a bloody, terroristic presence in the Middle East meant to say Iran would soon be in murderous control. "To think that we'd allow Iran to go back on the path of developing nuclear weapons while we try to get Iran to meet all twelve objectives is risky". Every other country that negotiated the landmark 2015 deal, which eased sanctions in exchange for curbs on Iran's nuclear program, intends to adhere to the agreement.

"This sting of sanctions will be painful if the regime does not change its course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen to one that rejoins the league of nations". "They set the bar at a place they know the Iranians can never accept".

The administration billed the speech, Pompeo's first policy address as secretary of state, as an articulation of Trump's new strategy toward Iran less than a month after he ignored the pleas of USA allies and withdrew from the nuclear accord. "We couldn't reach an agreement there", Pompeo said of his efforts. "This is a whole of government solution that we're working in order to change Iran's influence in the region and we're continuing to do that". Trump's threats, since December, to abandon the nuclear accord have helped cause the rial, Iran's currency, to lose a third of its value.

The hardline approach to Iran has drawn criticism from the regime's supporters, who claim the United States is seeking "regime change", a phrase often used in making comparisons to the USA invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

Pompeo declared: "We will ensure freedom of navigation on the waters in the region". Pompeo noted the list of demands may seem long, but placed the blame for the long list on Iran's malign activity including holding USA citizens hostage. We will track down Iranian operatives and their Hezbollah proxies operating around the world and crush them. "Are these two not responsible for wasting Iranian lives throughout the Middle East?"

Pompeo warned that the administration would hold companies doing prohibited business in Iran to account.

"We are not asking anything other than that Iranian behavior be consistent with global norms", Pompeo said. Ponder how North Koreans recently released three American prisoners as a prelude to talks while the Iranians released no American prisoners until Obama provided a ransom that he and confused supporters said was not a ransom.
