Iran has rebuffed an offer from the European Union to soon hold direct negotiations with the United States on Tehran’s nuclear program, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.

Citing two unnamed Western diplomats, the newspaper said Iran rejected the offer to hold talks in the coming days, as it wanted a pledge some US sanctions would be lifted after the meeting. Biden administration officials have said sanctions will not be lifted until Iran returns to compliance with the 2015 international accord limiting its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The diplomats said there was still hope for resuming nuclear talks despite Iran’s spurning of the EU offer, and suggested that the rejection may be aimed at gaining negotiating leverage.

They absolutely want more leverage. With Biden, Iran will get it.

Guarantees before they talk isn't reasonable.

One of the worst things Trump did was exit the Iran deal, as there's no reason for Iran to trust future American regimes. Then, of course, Biden had to go and illegally bomb "Iranian militants" in Iran's ally Syria's borders. Another reason for them not to negotiate.

The Moolahs must be waiting on another pallet or two of cash. Isn't that in the coronavirus stimulus package too?

What you say is true, but Iran is also funding the al Houthis attacks on KSA and the Bab al Mandab.

Iran funds terrorists. It was Obama's failure to include that in the original deal. In fact, Obama looked the other way.

Iran knows they can do whatever they want, secure in the knowledge that if Israel takes out their nuke facilities Biden will bomb Jerusalem.

That man-child cannot resist starting a war!

Not really a problem for the United States if the United States would quit occupying the Middle East, is it?

The U.S. funds terrorists; see ISIS in Syria.

Iran funds terrorists. Period. It wasn't addressed in the deal.

The deal wasn't about the US. Was it?

How about a regime change?

They want 1 trillion dollars.

The US didn't fund ISIS.. They were self funding with kidnapping for ransom, bank robbery, drug smuggling..

YUP. The US only guarded the poppy fields and facilitated transport/logistics.

We fucked up so early that we have been having to play catch up for the past 60 years, leaving things as they are (even though I would very much like to pull out and leave it alone) could end up resulting in another dangerous enemy adding to the strength of Iran. (which is where we fucked up in '54)
