Iran Rejects Biden’s Compromise Nuclear Offer Before He Makes It

By

Iran has rejected President Joe Biden’s reported compromise proposal for a partial nuclear deal before he has even offered it.

As Breitbart News noted earlier Tuesday, Politico reported Monday that Biden was preparing to offer Iran partial relief from sanctions in exchange for a partial suspension of nuclear activity.

the Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday, Iran has already ruled out Biden’s proposal:

Iran said that it will not stop its 20% uranium enrichment before the US lifts all sanctions, Iranian state TV quoted an unnamed official as saying in reaction to the US media report that Washington would offer a new proposal to jump-start talks.

…The Iranian rejection of new talks was the third time the Islamic Republic had turned down a US offer to open talks about a new nuclear deal and the continuation of international sanctions against the regime.The Biden administration has been seeking to engage Iran in talks about both sides resuming compliance with the deal, under which economic sanctions on Tehran were removed in return for curbs on Iran’s nuclear program to make it harder to develop a nuclear weapon.

President Biden has taken several steps — often at the expense of U.S. allies — aimed at enticing Iran to rejoin negotiation, all to no avail thus far.
