- Is this coming new Iranian Nuclear Deal: Peace Treaty, Daniel’s ‘Covenant of 1 Week’? See bottom of post.
- Macron And Other European Leaders Pledge to Salvage Iran Deal
by Melissa Bell, Saskya Vandoorne and James Masters, CNN
Paris (CNN)French President Emmanuel Macron reaffirmed Europe’s commitment to the Iran nuclear deal Wednesday while urging Tehran to take part in future discussions over its ballistic missile program.A day after US President Donald Trump announced he was quitting the pact, putting him on a collision course with some of the US’ closest allies, Macron spoke with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani by telephone as attempts to salvage the deal began in earnest.
According to an Élysée Palace readout of the call, Macron urged Iran to “engage in a wide discussion with all parties involved” on topics including the country’s nuclear program after 2025, its ballistic missiles and its actions across the Middle East. Macron confirmed that the French and Iranian foreign ministers would meet soon to ensure progress.
Earlier Wednesday, France’s Foreign Secretary Jean-Yves Le Drian had attempted to calm tensions by insisting the Iran deal was “not dead.” “The American logic is an isolationist, protectionist and unilateral logic,” Le Drian told French radio station RTL. “This is a break with international commitment and France deeply regrets this decision. We will bring businesses together in the coming days to try and preserve them as much as possible from the US measures.”
Representatives from France, the UK and Germany — key signatories to the six-nation negotiating group that brokered the 2015 Obama-era Iran deal — would meet with their Iranian counterparts on Monday and were committed to preserving the agreement, Le Drian said.
- Why do I have my 10 pairs of eyeballs on this JCPOA, Iran nuclear deal? The EU driven by Macron is discussing a revised Iran nuclear deal but without USA participation. The current deal expires in 2025 ie. about 7 years (according to Trump see below). Will the revised deal, which is based on the existing deal, still keep the 2025 expiry? If so, it definitely can coincide with the Biblical Book of Daniel’s prophecy of ‘Covenant of 1 week’ ie. 7 Biblical years. A biblical year is 360 days not 365 days. (Note: JCPOA ‘Termination Day’ is in Oct 2025)
- The revised deal is quite obviously a PEACE Treaty.
Iran Sanctions – JCPOA in the Balance
What are the “Terrible Flaws” That President Trump Sees?
President Trumps opposes a number of aspects of the JCPOA. One is that the obligations it imposes on Iran relate only to its nuclear programme, but not on its “other malign activities”2 (IRGC funding, cyber aggression, maritime aggression, human rights violations, destabilising activity in the Middle East); a second is that the JCPOA does not consider long-range missile development as part of a nuclear weapons programme; a third is that the JCPOA has an expiry date (on Termination Day, in 2025).
