Iran, September 3, 2019–Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a member of the Security Commission in the Iranian regime’s Majlis (parliament), shared grave concerns over the critical situation of the mullahs’ rule.
“In our current circumstances time is running out for the state. A government facing problems and restrictions in selling its oil cannot wait two decades like Iraq for the status quo to change,” he said in remarks to state-run media.
Ibrahim Rezaie, head of the Majlis Nuclear Commission, criticized those calling for talks with Washington.
“Those individuals who are talking about negotiations with the U.S. are naïve. Europe, on [U.S. President Donald] Trump’s request, is attempting to bring us and America back to the negotiating table. Without a doubt, [French President Emmanuel] Macron has the main role in this initiative,” he said.
Hossein Malaek, former Iranian regime ambassador to China, expressed his disappointment in the results of Tehran’s latest round of talks with Europe.
“Signs indicate that there are fundamentally no solutions to stop [Iran’s] third round of nuclear commitment step backs. Europe, and especially the French, are unable to carry out any measures,” he explained.
The state-run Farhikhtegan daily published a piece on the latest measures threatened by Iran that will be in violation of the 2015 nuclear deal.
“In such circumstances, resorting to justifying mechanisms and providing imaginary explanations will actually weaken [Iran’s] position prior to the third round of nuclear commitment deductions,” the article argues.
Mojtaba Zolnouri, head of the Majlis Security Commission, lashed out at recent blueprint placed forward by France.
“Europe’s €15 billion plan is a trap and we must raise our uranium enrichment level to 20 percent… We must not stop our efforts in increasing uranium enrichment levels at 4.2 percent. We must raise the enrichment level to 20 percent to thus implement the preventive measures we are seeking,” he explained.
