Iran can resist US threats without nukes – Tehran’s former negotiator (E749)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Seyed Hossein Mousavian, Iran’s spokesperson during the Iran Deal (JCPOA) negotiations. He discusses Donald Trump’s latest threats delivered via Twitter, the US’ conflicting and confused policy on Iran, whether Iran can resist the US while it lacks nukes and the failure of the EU to deliver its commitments. Next, we speak to Lembit Opik for Broken News where he discusses the top stories including the ‘nuclear coffin’ – radioactive waste from US nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands potentially leaking into the Pacific Ocean, the Intercept’s security breach potentially responsible for sending whistleblower Daniel Hale to prison, and the official report of a massacre in Haiti where children as young as 4 were fatally shot. Finally, we speak to Sean Murray on his new film Unquiet Graves, detailing the British government’s role in the murder of over 120 civilians in counties Armagh & Tyrone (in the north of Ireland) & the Republic of Ireland during the 1970s.

READ MORE: Statement by EU High Representative.

There is a full determination on the European Union side  - and all the Member States also expressed this today very clearly - to continue implementing in full the nuclear deal with Iran [JCPOA].

Statement from the Chinese embassy:

The JCPOA, a multilateral agreement endorsed by the UN Security Council should be implemented fully and effectively due to its vital role in the international non-proliferation regime and peace and stability in the Middle East. All parties concerned need to think seriously about what has caused the current escalation of tension.

China will continue to fulfil its obligations under the JCPOA and work closely with all relevant parties to uphold and implement the agreement.
