Iran, July 11, 2019As the Iranian regime continues its contradictory self-destructive policy by violating its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers (known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – JCPOA) while begging for negotiations, the infighting of its factions has escalated.


The state-run Keyhan newspaper wrote, “The minute decrease of the level of our [regime’s] obligations [in the nuclear deal] is not a reaction to Europe’s kick at the JCPOA's coffin. We cannot define, due to the deceptive manner of the Europeans, the delay in a reaction as 'strategical patience'. Why should (the regime) be patient while Europe plans to exit the JCPOA?”


“The office of French President Emmanuel Macron, after his conversation with [his Iranian counterpart] Hassan Rouhani, claimed that 'both sides have agreed to prepare the situation for the resumption of negotiations by July 15.' What negotiation? Surely a resumption of negotiations while the U.S. and Europe are standing on the corps of the JCPOA after two years of negotiations is foolhardy.” Keyhan added.


“It would have been better to start uranium enrichment at 20 percent as retaliation for six years of delay”, the newspaper, affiliated to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), wrote in this regard.


“The nine-day plan for Macron’s proposals, just like INSTEX (the EU’s financial system to help the regime), is more like offering candy to a baby, with the intention of preventing us from going in the right direction,” another state-run newspaper wrote.


The former heard of the regime’s Atomic Energy Organization called for uranium enrichment at 20 percent. “We should consider enriching uranium at 20 percent. We should construct and install six cascades for enriching uranium at 20 percent and keep the products,” he said.


“Despite all the expectations, our Atomic Energy Organization spokesperson explained that in the current situation, it is not the policy of Rouhani’s government to start the uranium enrichment at 20 percent in order to provide fuel for Tehran’s reactor. With respect to Arak’s reactor, the same old words were repeated,” the state-run newspaper Vatan-e Emrooz wrote.


Separately, Ali Bigdeli, an international affairs analyst working for the regime, panicked about the possible consequences of the regime’s JCPOA violation. “This action made the U.S. more hopeful in reaching its goal to unite with Europe against us. If this happens, the case of the Islamic Republic will be sent to the UN Security Council. Then it will not be clear what happens in the future."


Another regime analysts by the name of Pirouz Mojtahedzadeh also warned that any emotional reaction will have heavy consequences for them.
