Communist China on Monday demanded the United States to return to the Iran nuclear deal and end all sanctions placed on Tehran under President Donald Trump’s watch once Joe Biden moves into the White House.

“The US shall return to the Iran nuclear deal as soon as possible and without any preconditions, and the US should also scrap all sanctions imposed on Iran, other third-party entities and individuals,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a video conference with other four signatories of the 2015 nuclear accord.

The Chinese foreign minister’s undiplomatic and stern tone underlines China’s belief in a ‘reset‘ in bilateral relations with a Biden-run administration. According to Chinese media reports, Beijing opened backchannel talks with figures close to the Biden team last month and wants a rollback on the tough policy course pursued by President Donald Trump.

The Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post reported the Chinese foreign minister’s remarks:

China called on the United States on Monday to return to the Iran nuclear deal without conditions and to lift all US sanctions against Iran and related entities.

“The US shall return to the Iran nuclear deal as soon as possible and without any preconditions, and the US should also scrap all sanctions imposed on Iran, other third-party entities and individuals,” said Foreign Minister Wang Yi, during a video conference hosted by the European Union and attended by foreign ministers from Russia, Iran, Britain, France and Germany – the other signatories to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that US President Donald Trump exited in 2018.

China is not alone, expecting the U.S. to reenter the Obama-Kerry deal once the Democrats take the White House. Foreign ministers from Germany, Iran, China, Russia, and the United Kingdom ‘welcomed’ the prospect of Biden bringing Washington back into the fold of the deal disavowed by President Trump in May 2018.

“A joint statement released by [German Foreign Minister Heiko] Maas and the foreign ministers of Iran, China, Russia and the UK acknowledged their desire to see the treaty upheld and greeted the prospects of a US return to it under incoming President-elect Joe Biden as ‘positive,’” Germany’s state-run DW News reported Monday.

“With Joe Biden on board, all parties to the nuclear deal want to bring it back to life,” the German broadcaster noted in a separate article last week.

One thought on “Biden’s Overlords speak…..

  1. That does not sound like a “ demand “ in any disrespectful sense of the word.

    And we should be open to rejoining the Iran nuclear deal, with eyes wide open, after some very direct conversation with Tehran.

    Bibi and the Gulf Arabs should be listened to, but they should not have the ability to veto US policy any more, No red blooded American would want them to have that ability.
