President Joe Biden‘s hapless foreign policy has led some of America’s strongest strategic partners to distance themselves in recent weeks.
Now, even a top NATO ally is warning that it will not back the Biden administration’s efforts to capitulate to Iran by allowing the fundamentalist Islamic republic to set the terms of any negotiation deals, One America News Network reported.
In advance of efforts to bring the rogue regime back to the table for a nuclear arms deal—with some estimating it is only weeks away from enriching enough uranium for a bomb—Iranian foreign minister Hossein Amir–Abdollahian recently demanded for assets worth $10 billion dollars to be released by the United States as a goodwill gesture.
But after Biden and his administration failed to respond, German officials stepped in to clear the air.
“If here new conditions are being set by Iran for talks to be resumed, then we reject that,” a German foreign ministry spokesman said.
During his tenure, President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Obama-era agreement with Iran, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany aimed at stopping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.
Biden and his administration, looking to return to the glory of the Obama years, have suggested that the United States should reenter the deal.
Yet negotiations remain uncertain. Neither the United States nor the countries in the treaty have come to any solid agreement for the United States’ reentry.
Germany appears prepared to move on with or without the Biden administration’s support.
“We call on Iran to resume talks as soon as possible,” the German foreign ministry spokesman said, adding he expects an agreement on a specific date.
