Iranian Government Demands Access to Japanese Frozen Funds To Continue Nuclear Activities

-

Iran’s President, Ebrahim Raisi has met with the Japanese Foreign Minister, Toshimitsu Motegi to demand the release of $3 billion, frozen in Japanese banks as a result of sanctions by the United States on Iran’s banking sector.

A number of infamous regime officials were present at the meeting which took place on Sunday, August 22, including the National Security Council secretary Ali Shamkhani, Majlis (parliament) speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, and Mohammad Javad Zarif, the regime’s former Foreign Minister.

The demand comes after five rounds of talks between world powers and the Iranian regime in Vienna to curb Tehran’s dangerous nuclear program and revive the 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

As Raisi was declared as the next president of Iran, a sixth-round of talks was adjourned. According to state media sources, during the meeting with Motegi, Raisi questioned the justification for keeping the U.S. sanctions in place and stated that ‘Iran has no problem with the principle of negotiation’.

The meeting came just after the release of a new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which laid out that the regime has already produced enriched uranium up to 20 percent purity, and that the production capacity has recently been lifted to 60 percent. These worrying figures point to a nuclear program aimed at creating nuclear weapons.

The regime has shown no sign of slowing down its nuclear enrichment to earn the international community’s trust. This is just the latest manifestation of the regime’s lack of respect for global peace and the breach of its commitments.

The regime’s former president, Hassan Rouhani spoke out in July saying that Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization already has the ability to enrich uranium between 20% and 60%, and if the reactors need it, the uranium can be enriched up to 90% purity.

Raisi’s new cabinet is filled with former members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a terrorist organization in charge of running Iran’s economy and the nuclear weapons program.

The regime is blackmailing the international community to gain concession while experts are warning that even a return to the JCPOA will not block the regime’s path to a nuclear bomb.

The former U.S. Undersecretary of State for International Security, Robert Joseph stated that the regime has cheated in regards to every agreement it has made with international governing bodies and he questioned why agreements are still made with them, knowing their history.

Analysts believe that letting the regime access the frozen funds will only encourage them to work harder and faster on producing nuclear weapons.

The Iranian Resistance (NCRI) has stressed time and again, only a firm policy will curb the regime’s nuclear ambitions. The continuation of the decades-long appeasement policy will allow Tehran to keep and hide its dangerous nuclear weapons program.
