London, 21 Feb - The Trump administration must keep threatening to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal unless the EU agrees to help fix the flaws of the deal, according to a leading Iran expert, or the EU will not confront Iran about changes to the deal.

On Tuesday, Emily Landau, INSS Arms Control Director, told attendees at the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations that the May 12 deadline given by Trump in January, for the EU to agree on how to improve the accord, “might not be as strict a date as we thought”.

London, 14 Feb - The Iran has unveiled a range of nuclear-capable ballistic missiles at this weekend’s military parades, despite a UN resolution against developing those missiles.

The nuclear-capable missile appears to be similar to North Korean technology, according to experts, and according to Iran it has radar-evading capability and can even strike Israel from Iranian territory.

As such, it looks like these missiles will further inflame tensions between Israel and Iran, given that the Iran fuels terrorist proxies on Israel’s borders and could easily supply the groups with these missiles as they do for the Houthis against Saudi Arabia.

London, 05 Feb - In mid-January, Donald Trump set a final deadline for Congress (and the five other countries who signed the Iran nuclear deal) to come together and fix it. If the deal has not been amended by May, Trump warns that he will pull out of the deal.

In late January, Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif wrote an op-ed for the Financial Times to argue that the deal was necessary to worldwide security and that amendments to the deal, risked jeopardising that security.

To translate from the language of diplomacy, Zarif basically said that if the deal was changed, Iran would withdraw, restart its nuclear programme, and build nuclear weapons to threaten the world with. That’s basically a declaration of war, in a newspaper, that many took as a reason to not renegotiate the deal.

London, 06 Feb - Iran announced that it had begun mass-producing a new weaponised drone that is capable of carrying ‘smart’ bombs, which are capable of precision strikes.

At an unveiling ceremony in Tehran on Monday, Iranian Defence Minister and Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Amir Hatami said: “"Drone Mohajer 6, [is] equipped with the smart Qa'em precision-striking bombs and different electro-optical explorers and different warheads, can trace, intercept and destroy the target."

Also in attendance at the ceremony was Commander of the IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour.

London, 30 Jan - What with the recent widespread anti-regime protests in Iran and the Trump administration’s ongoing debate about withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal, the Iran Lobby must be very worried indeed.

The mullahs, faced with a sceptical US government, have sent their American lobbyists into overdrive to criticise Donald Trump and defend the nuclear deal. The two public faces for this campaign of disinformation: Trita Parsi of the National Iranian American Council and Seyed Hossein Mousavian, a former Iranian regime nuclear official who bizarrely took up a post at Princeton University as a Middle East security expert.
