Iran’s UN Ambassador: No worries about Trump’s actions and tricks in last days as US President/No fundamental change in US foreign relations

2021/01/12 | interview, political, top news

Strategic Council Online—Interview: The Ambassador and permanent representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations says the present climate in the United States and sensitivities of the rival party to the probable decisions and measures of Trump in his last days in the White House would prevent the outgoing US president from causing any worries in the remaining days in power.

Majid Takhteravanchi told the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations on the recent military movements and arrangements in the region as well as rising concerns about the probable use of nuclear weapons by Trump within the next days that “the US President has taken many strange and awkward measures during the past four years and that’s why there are concerns he may take unpredicted measures in the coming several days when his presidential tenure ends on 19 January.”

Referring to the present climate in the international scene including in the United States concerning the probable decisions and measures of Trump in his last days as US president, he said “I personally consider it highly unlikely that Trump could cause concerns and worries regarding the use of nuclear weapons.”

Takhteravanchi, however, said Trump’s unpredictability in foreign relations should be considered but not underestimated, adding that people should keep alarmed in the last days of Trump’s presidency.

The Ambassador and permanent representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations said Iran should be monitoring the recent military movements and arrangements of the United States in the Persian Gulf and be prepared for any scenarios even though “I personally believe nothing will happen within the next several days.”

Asked about his analysis on the strategic approach of the next US administration towards Iran, Takhteravanchi said various governments in the United States, either Democrat or Republican, have adopted international policies which are not that much different.

Referring to the non-conventional policies and decisions of the Trump administration during the past four years, he said such activities and movements of this US administration concerning Iran or even other countries have been unpredictable for many pundits in and outside of the United States.

He said no fundamental change should be expected from the next US administration in its policies and approaches towards Iran, adding that various US administration from Democratic or Republican parties have exploited sanctions as a tool against Iran.

“The United States in the past several years has used sanctions as a tool to gain concessions and the next US government is no exception. It seems that the Biden administration would continue the same approach even though no probable opportunity should be used in realizing the rights of the Iranian nation.”

Therefore, it may not reflect the reality if one says the new US administration will stop sanctions as a tool against Iran.

“We may see different tactics in some dimensions. For example, the humiliating approach of Trump towards European leaders should not be repeated during the Biden’s administration. Perhaps Biden would be more delicate in treating others and dealing with them. However, if one thinks the Biden administration, compared to Trump’s, would not have differences with Europe, it is incorrect. There will not be a fundamental change in the US policies towards China.”

Takhteravanchi said we would be witnessing a series of policies which may portray a different image of the US government but will not experience a 180-degree change compared to the previous administration.

Claims of a US Arms Embargo against Zionist Regime Reveal America’s Deception

Goals of Blinken’s Recent Trip to Saudi Arabia

Strategic Council Online—Interview: A researcher of Saudi affairs said that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Riyadh recently during a regional trip and had consultations with the Riyadh officials. It seems that one of the items on the agenda between Saudi Arabia and America, in addition to the Gaza war, is the process of normalizing relations between the Israeli regime and the Arab kingdom.

It Was America That Abandoned Nuclear Diplomacy/ Iran Also Considers Diplomacy the Best Approach

Strategic Council Online: The President of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations stated: “The US State Department spokesperson, after my interview with Al Jazeera, reiterated their past remarks, stating that they won’t allow Iran to build nuclear weapons, but ultimately said diplomacy is the best approach. Yes, we too prefer diplomacy since based on the Fatwa of our Supreme Leader are not for nuclear weapons; rather, we are advocates of diplomacy to make the Middle East a nuclear-free region. But, in case the Israeli regime threatens us with nuclear weapons, we surely cannot sit idle and wait for permission from others.”

Europe’s Confusion in Securing Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea

Strategic Council Online – Opinion: The strategic Strait of Bab al-Mandab and the Red Sea have recently faced serious problems and crises due to the Gaza war. This is because of the protectionist approach of the Yemeni army forces toward Palestine, which, since the beginning of the Israeli regime’s attacks on the Gaza Strip, has included attacks on ships bound for or from the origin of the regime in the Red Sea.
They said they will continue their attacks until the Israeli regime’s military aggression in the Gaza Strip ends. The United States, as the most important supporter of the Israeli regime, was the first country to respond to this policy of Yemeni army forces and tried to form a global coalition to counter these attacks under the cover of supporting freedom of navigation, which, of course, failed because of conflicts of interests of Western countries and ended in the actions of the US and British attacks on positions in Yemen. Of course, although European countries were not seriously involved in the American coalition, they have numerous and complex interests in this inflammatory, and as a result, have adopted a particular and independent approach.

The prospect of Possible Departure of Hamas Political Office from Qatar

Strategic Council Online – Interview: An expert on regional issues said Qatari authorities will definitely resist Western pressure to expel Hamas leaders from their territory, and probably the United States will not move towards a zero-hundred equation in this regard because if the Hamas leaders remain in Qatar, which is an ally of the United States, is better than moving to a country outside the power of the United States to exert pressure.
