Iran’s Foreign Minister Threatens to Expose Western Diplomats Who Took Bribes to Create the Iran Nuclear Deal, May 13, 2018
When Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, European companies were faced with a stark choice. Do they continue doing business in Iran and risk being prohibited from doing business with the United States and with any bank who does business with the United States? Or do they pull out of Iran? The answer to that question will become more clear in the next few weeks as Steve Mnuchin and the green eyeshades guys in Treasury begin to reimpose pre-2015 sanctions (I have to say, Mnuchin is the first Treasury Secretary I’ve seen who seems positively gleeful about slapping malefactors with sanctions, I hope it becomes a tradition).
Iran has released this video, May 13, 2018:
There is an interesting section in the letter:
Shortly before Trump withdrew from the agreement, Zarif’s spokesman had something to say which seems related to that section:
H.J.Ansari Zarif’s senior advisor: “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make # IranDeal happen.”
That would be interesting. # JCPOA
I wish I could say I was shocked that Iran was paying off Western diplomats and officials to negotiate a deal that gave it everything it wanted and demanded nothing in return.
This photo was added by me.
