The Biden people say this is just something they are doing…
Don’t mean much….
It happens that the Iranians have said from the jump tp the Biden admin that any start of nuclear weapon restriction HAVE to have loosening of sanctions to their country , which has severe domestic economic issues…
All the sudden they are loosened?
This IS part of negotiations ….
Lets’s remember ….
Former US Senator Biden is the President , who has a decades of experience in trying to cut political deals….He’s done more than Donald Trump….
The Biden administration on Thursday lifted sanctions on three former Iranian government officials and two Iranian companies involved in the country’s oil industry, a conciliatory gesture days before a potentially decisive round of nuclear talks in Vienna.
The administration cautioned against reading too much into the move. Ned Price, the State Department spokesman, said there was “absolutely no connection” between the sanctions and discussions among several world powers and Tehran.
Those talks are intended to bring the United States and Iran back into compliance with the 2015 deal that sought to limit Iran’s nuclear program in return for an end to many of the international sanctions that have squeezed the country’s economy.
In the same statements announcing that the United States had lifted some sanctions, the State and Treasury Departments also said they were imposing new ones on a dozen Iranian individuals, entities and vessels for providing financial support to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are backed by Iran.
A sixth round of nuclear talks begins in Vienna this weekend. Robert Einhorn, an arms control expert at the Brookings Institution, said that the timing of the U.S. announcements suggested a connection to the nuclear issue, and that it might be a signal of American flexibility.
“What they’re saying to Iran,” he said, “is, look, we’re prepared to be reasonable here: When sanctions are no longer warranted, we’re prepared to lift them; but when they are warranted, we’re prepared to impose them.”…
Iran has also been under pressure from the Israeli’s who have been ALL over their internal program with people taken out and hardware sabatoged….
