Why Talking With Iran Is So Tricky For The US

Global sanctions were lifted under the pact between world powers and Tehran in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear programme.

Some countries like India, China and Turkey say they are too dependent on Iranian crude to obey U.S. orders, but many refiners, particularly in Europe, are already cutting back.

President Trump earlier this year pulled the USA out of the highly-flawed worldwide deal meant to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon and ordered increased sanctions, as well as threatening penalties for companies from other countries that continue to do business with the terror-sponsoring Islamic regime.

When President Donald Trump said he'd be open to talks with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, Iran dismissed the idea pretty quickly.

Sporadic protests were taking place in cities in Iran for a fourth day, with demonstrators attacking a Shi'ite seminary west of Tehran, according to Iranian news agencies and social media on Saturday, as Iranians brace for a return of US sanctions.

The US has set a deadline of 4 November for major buyers of Iranian oil to stop their purchases.

This accounted for 35 percent of Iranian exports last month, according to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg . USA officials last week said Iran carried out a similar exercise, though Tehran did not immediately acknowledge it.

The Iranian regime is vulnerable to high inflation.

Responding to the tentative offer, IRGC-run Fars cited Jafari as saying, "Former U.S. presidents learned better than Trump that Iran and its people could not be threatened, and that they would instead close their ranks and strengthen their unity against any foreign threat and pressure". "That's the behavioral change that we're looking for from the Iranian regime", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Metro TV in Jakarta. The sanctions targeting Iran's oil industry could cut off a crucial source of hard currency.

Sanctions and diplomatic pressure could pile enough pressure on the regime that it comes to the negotiating table - something Trump has advocated for. As such, with hefty U.S. sanctions on the Iranian oil and financial markets looming in November, time is running out for the European Union and Iran to save the pact.

The United States has told third countries they must halt imports of Iranian oil from early November or face us financial measures. Sanctions on trade in Iranian metals and automobiles go back into effect Monday. Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in a press conference that the United States has to have respect for Iran and worldwide law in order for dialogue to occur, according to IRNA news agency.

The report said a protest was taking place in Karaj, 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of Tehran, when someone fired from a auto.
