Teheran Iran Events

The pragmatist Hassan Rouhani was elected President of Iran with the aim of improving relations with the world and the economy, which can only be achieved by easing sanctions.

After secret US-Iranian talks laid the groundwork, Iran and the six major powers agreed to an interim pact called the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA), in which Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities in exchange for limited sanctions relief. The agreement is colloquially known as the Iran Nuclear Deal: Iran committed to dismantling its entire nuclear program and curtailed it in exchange for the lifting of international economic sanctions. But after Trump pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear "deal," Iran announced it would ease some of the restrictions imposed by the deal. This will pave the way for a comprehensive easing of sanctions on Iran, while IAEA inspectors will continue to be granted access to Iranian nuclear facilities.

The IAEA has repeatedly confirmed that Iran is honoring its obligations, which means that for the time being there is no evidence that it is moving toward a bomb. The US has urged mediators to show restraint and warned Iran against a tough response in the event of retaliation.

Iranian and IAEA officials said the move was a step toward giving Iranian scientists access to more information about Iran's nuclear program and activities. Four days later, President Ahmadinejad announced that Iran had produced 20% and that it had the possibility of further enrichment if it chose to do so. On November 12, he declared that all hostages would be released if the United States stopped interfering in Iranian affairs, the Shah returned to Iran for trial, and all property declared stolen.

Iran's nuclear program since the 1950 "s, when the Shah's Iran received technical assistance from the US program. Although this assistance expired after the Iranian revolution in 1979, Iran remained interested in nuclear technology and developed a large nuclear fuel cycle, including advanced enrichment capacity, which became the subject of intense international negotiations between 2002 and 2015.

Iran and the P5 + 1 met for the first time to resume open talks on Iran's nuclear program. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry met to make a joint statement on the progress of negotiations between Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and Germany.

Khomeini arrived triumphantly in Tehran on February 1, 1979, and was hailed as the leader of the Iranian revolution. He returned triumphantly to Iran after the Shah's withdrawal and arrived in Tehran on 4 March 1978 with a triumph on the streets of Tehran, the capital of Iran's second largest city.

At the time, Trump tweeted: 'If Iran wants to fight us, it will be the official end of Iran. The president said he never meant it that way, and Iran never acquired nuclear weapons. It is unclear whether the attack is a response to Iran's nuclear program or a direct threat to the United States. In view of the hostile actions of the Iranian regime, I announced today that we are taking several important steps to counter them.

It is clear that the events of recent years have made Iran a key player in the Middle East region.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said last week that Iran's Supreme National Security Council, which includes the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Hossein Fakhrizadeh, is in favor of withdrawing US troops from the Middle East, though it is unclear how Iran intends to do so. Although rarely seen in public, he has allowed himself to appear on official Iranian websites, including at events hosted by the Supreme Leader's office, the Revolutionary Guards, and the Foreign Ministry. As a sign of his importance, the IR-GC commander - in - Chief Hosseini Salami reported directly to him. Analysts, diplomats, and spies focused on Iran believe that this is possible, but some members of Iran's "Supreme National Security Council," which includes both President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other senior officials, have rejected it.

Iranian prisons, half a dozen US citizens remain in Iranian prisons; on 14 January Iran released 10 US sailors who ended up in prison for less than 24 hours after being taken into custody by Iran. Two dozen Iranian nationals are in prison for violating sanctions against Iran, according to the U.S. State Department.

Iranian state television called the missile a "harsh Iranian revenge" for Suleimani's death and warned that Tehran would escalate and the two longtime foes would face another war if the United States triggered military retaliation. It said the missiles were fired in response to Iran's nuclear test on January 14, a day after the death of the Quds force chief, Qasem Soleimi, but warned of the possibility of a US military strike on Iran if it did.
