EghtesadOnline: Iran needs to refrain from engaging in a dispute with the United States over the sanctions snapback mechanism and should instead focus on securing its rights under the 2015 nuclear deal, an international law expert says.
EghtesadOnline: The scope of authority of the Foreign Ministry and the country's chief diplomat should be broadened as it would help serve national interests, particularly now that the issue of triggering sanctions snapback against Iran is gaining momentum, a senior lawmaker says.
EghtesadOnline: The idea of triggering the 2015 nuclear deal's dispute resolution mechanism, which could lead to the return of global sanctions against Iran, was not discussed during the recent meeting of the agreement's Joint Commission, according to a top Iranian diplomat, despite previous hints by European countries about considering it as an option.
EghtesadOnline: The European signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal cannot afford to trigger sanctions snapback because it is Iran's "redline" and would cause a collapse of the agreement and undermine security in Europe, a political analyst says.
EghtesadOnline: Europe is unlikely to trigger sanctions snapback because there is still room for diplomacy with Iran, says a political analyst, who believes that European warnings are meant to dissuade Tehran from further reducing its compliance with the nuclear deal.
EghtesadOnline: Iran is likely to take more "decisive" measures if the European signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal fail to fulfill their obligations, says a political analyst, who believes it would be a "strategic" mistake if Europe decides to trigger sanctions snapback.
EghtesadOnline: Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday downplayed the possibility of sanctions snapback, assuring the Iranian business community that Iran's nuclear deal with world powers reached in 2015 was facing no "serious dangers".
