Revolutionary Guards Warn West May 'Renege' on Nuclear Deal (Kayhan, Iran)


Do competing interpretations about the meaning of the interim deal between Iran and the West represent a rejection of that deal? According to this news item from from Iran's state-run Kayhan, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Major General Muhammad Ali Jafari, is warning that Iranian negotiators ' should strongly consider declaring the deal null and void' if they sense any 'violation, lack of commitment, trampling on the inalienable nuclear rights of our country, or abuse of the agreement due to personal interpretations by [people in] the West and U.S.'

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Major General Muhammad Ali Jafari appear to be playing good cop-bad cop among Iran's hardliners, with Khamenei supporting President Rouhani and the country's nuclear negotiators, Jafari warning that the West is already reneging.

TEHRAN: Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Major General Muhammad Ali Jafari, said Monday that if the other side reneges on its commitments, Iranian officials must nullify outright the recent nuclear accord.


"(Iranian) officials should strongly consider declaring the deal null and void if they see any violation, lack of commitment, trampling on the inalienable nuclear rights of our country, or abuse of the agreement due to personal interpretations by [people in] the West and U.S.," he said.


General Jafari stressed the need for diplomatic vigilance in the talks, warning that the path between an initial agreement and a final one, as charted out by negotiators, could both serve and harm Iran's interests. He also said he regretted U.S. President Barack Obama’s repeated reference to the military option, calling it "ludicrous."


"Such absurd talk by officials of the United States and the false, evil Zionist regime sounds odd to the Iranian nation," said Jafari, adding that the U.S. and Zionist regimes are utterly incapable of taking military action against Iran. He said any "stupid measure" taken by the enemies would compel Iran to consider its own options.


"Lots of options are also on the table for Iran, and they (the enemies) will receive crushing responses, one of which would be the elimination of the Zionist regime," he warned.


His comments came as U.S. senators from both U.S. political parties are forging a new agreement aimed at imposing new sanctions against Iran before Christmas.


According to a report in the Washington Post Monday, "a bipartisan juggernaut of senior senators" is currently working on the agreement, while the White House is trying to lobby against the move, afraid that it could thwart talks to reach a final deal with Tehran, set to begin in January.


"If you want to hold our feet to the fire on the final deal, fine, do that," a senior Obama Administration official was quoted by the paper as saying. "If people have concerns about elements of a final agreement, come in and tell us. But that is a separate discussion from passing a sanctions bill in the middle of negotiations."


Administration officials argue that additional sanctions now would violate the interim agreement signed between the world powers and Iran in Geneva last weekend.


"Our view is that passing these sanctions during the life of the negotiations would complicate the negotiations in a number of ways," said the official quoted in the report.


The Senate is back in session December 9, and between now and then, according to the report, "the White House has organized a full-court press to persuade lawmakers not to act."


On Friday, in a widely-circulated editorial, the Washington Post said that the U.S. and its partners have already agreed to allow Iran to enrich uranium "within mutually agreed parameters" and gave their initial consent to a "sunset clause" on restrictions in the nuclear deal negotiated in Geneva last weekend.


Meanwhile, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister and lead negotiator Abbas Araqchi said Iran and the world powers are likely to meet again next week to discuss the implementation of the hard-fought deal recently clinched on Tehran's nuclear energy program.

The breakthrough accord struck November 24 between Iran and the P5+1 - the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany - foresees Tehran rolling back some of its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

"Our experts may hold a meeting next week in Vienna or Geneva to review the details of implementing the agreement," national broadcaster IRIB quoted Abbas Araqchi as saying.


He added that the first phase of the accord, which will enter into force for six months, will be implemented once the finer details have been thrashed out.


Tehran's envoy to the IAEA, Reza Najafi, indicated on Friday that Iran's six-month freeze of its nuclear program would begin by early January.


Araqchi gave no date for the next round of talks, but the ISNA News Agency, citing an Iranian official, said political directors of the countries involved were expected to meet with IAEA officials in Vienna Dec. 9 and 10.


"The goal of that meeting is to set a date for the inspection (by IAEA experts) of the Gachin (uranium) mine in Bandar Abbas Province and the implementation of four other articles of the agreement," the unnamed official said.
