In blackmail attempt, West sets 4 conditions to end Iran riots support
A security official tells Al-Alam that Western countries set four prerequisites in order to stop supporting riots in Iran.
A security official revealed that Western countries set four conditions in order to stop supporting rioters in Iran, Al-Alam reported.
The security official told Al-Alam that several countries that intervened in the recent riots in Iran said they would stop supporting riots in the country if Tehran pours its oil and gas into the world market without any set conditions, accepts the West's viewpoints on the nuclear deal (the JCPOA), reaches settlements with Saudi Arabia over regional-related issues, and ends its cooperation with Russia.
Iran has been under Western sanctions for many years primarily due to its nuclear program, barring sides from being involved in sales and transactions with the Islamic Republic.
US will focus on supporting rioters rather than JCPOA
Regarding the relation between the JCPOA and the recent riots in Iran, Robert Malley - the US special envoy to Iran - recently said the United States will be focusing on a number of other things rather than reviving the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.
In an interview for Bloomberg, Malley said Washington will be focusing on supporting rioters in Iran - which former US National Security Chief John Bolton recently admitted to them being armed - and on Iranian arms supplies to Russia.
In the same context, French President Emmanuel Macron told France Inter radio on November 14 that the current riots in Iran have an impact on the nuclear deal negotiations.
Similarly, the Assistant Commander of the IRGC for Political Affairs, Brigadier General Yadollah Javani, indicated on November 11 that one of the enemy's goals in destabilizing the country and trying to repeat the Syrian scenario in Iran is to influence the nuclear negotiations and obtain some concessions.
In the same context, Iranian army commander, Maj. Gen. Seyyed Abdolrahim Mousavi considered on November 7 that the riots in Iran were part of the United States plan to disrupt negotiations on the restoration of the nuclear deal, formerly known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Western countries angered by Iran's progress
It is noteworthy that Iranian leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei and other high-ranking Iranian officials have considered that the recent riots that the country has witnessed are incited by Western countries who are angered at Iran's progress despite the unprecedented sanctions.
Tehran's Security Minister Esmail Khatib said last November that it became clear in the recent events that the Israeli occupation was responsible for implementation, the UK media was responsible for sponsoring, and Saudi Arabia was responsible for financial support.
On his part, Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi revealed in mid-November that the leaders of the recent riots in Iran received training in seven countries.
In late October, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps' intelligence wing revealed that intelligence obtained by Tehran indicates that the CIA and allied intelligence services planned a conspiracy in Iran against the Islamic Republic.
Recently, the Security Council of the Iranian Interior Ministry announced that the riot toll to date since September is around 200 deaths with over $200 million in private and public property damage.
