Oman says it is trying to reduce US-Iran tensions

Hostilities between the US and Iran have escalated significantly in recent weeks but the latter insists it does not seek a war with the former. — AFP  File

"The enemies are pressuring to make us abandon our dignity and independence but the (Iranian) nation will once again show them that their conspiracies will not be successful and will make the enemies regret it", he noted.

Qureshi added that tensions in the region are in no one's interest. Although its nuclear program was set in motion in 1957 as part of the USA government'sAtoms for Peaceprogram, the anti-American 1979 revolution turned the tide, and Iran's uranium-enrichment undertakings became a thorn in the side of the United States and its European allies. And on Thursday, the Pentagon outlined proposals to the White House to send military reinforcements to the Middle East to beef up defenses against Iran.

The Trump administration pulled America out of the deal previous year, and subsequently re-imposed and escalated US sanctions on Tehran - sending Iran's economy into freefall.

Donald Trump tweeted saying that If Iran wanted to fight it would be their official end.

Under the terms of the deal, the UN's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, is charged with regular inspections of declared facilities in Iran such as uranium mines and centrifuge workshops for up to 25 years.

The ministry says there's a "window for diplomacy to persuade Iran to continue its full compliance" with the deal and warns "there's a real risk of escalation - including due to misunderstandings or an incident". His remarks show the internal pressure both Rouhani and Zarif now face amid the USA tensions.

Trump hits back at Democratic claims of 'cover-up'
Ramos, reading his 25-page opinion in a NY courtroom, said he wouldn't grant Trump's request for a preliminary injunction. Since the release of the report, the Trump administration has stonewalled the House's investigations.

Both Trump and senior Iranian officials, including supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have downplayed the prospect of a war between their countries. "I remain committed to ensuring USA personnel have the force protection resources they need and deserve".

Though Zarif himself recently returned from a short-lived resignation, Trump's position has also become more precarious in recent weeks. We're going to be sending a relatively small number of troops, mostly protective.

The U.S. held secret talks in Oman with the Iranians that gave birth to the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

"The way (the nuclear deal) was put into action, I didn't have much faith (in it)", Khamenei, who is the highest authority in Iran, said.

"The way the JCPOA was handled, I did not really believe in it, Khamenei told a group of university students and representatives of student associations Wednesday". If I were China or Russian Federation, I would thumb my nose at the USA, and tell them to first remove the existing trade sanctions, and then talk to them about curtailing Iran oil sales, ' the professor said.
