NCRI - JEDDAH: US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday agreed on the need to partner with allies to respond to the destabilization activities of Hezbollah and Iran in the region. Arab News reported on November 19.
The two leaders’ telephone conversation came in the aftermath of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s resignation, which he announced during a recent trip to Saudi Arabia.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime has always depended on its network of terrorist proxy groups to commits crimes on its behalf across the Middle East. As a result, the Regime spends billions of dollars every year - stolen from the Iranian people- to fund them.
But now, as a strong policy against Iranian aggression in the region starts to take shape, Iran and its proxies find themselves in a dire situation.
NCRI - France wants to get tougher on the Iranian Regime’s ballistic missile programme, calling on Wednesday for an “uncompromising” dialogue and a possible negotiation about the programme separate from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers (France, Britain, China, Germany, Russia and the United States).
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Agnes Romatet-Espagne said: “France is concerned about the continued pace of the Iranian missile program, which does not conform with (U.N.) Security Council Resolution 2231 and which is a source of destabilization and insecurity for the region.”
NCRI - The older brother of recently resigned Lebanese Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri voiced his support for his brother’s decision in light of the actions of both the Iranian Regime and their proxy terror group Hezbollah.
Bahaa Hariri gave a statement to the AP, on Wednesday, which criticised the Iranian Regime, accused Hezbollah of attempting to seize control of Lebanon, and expressed gratitude towards Saudi Arabia for its support of Lebanon and its legitimate government.
NCRI - The quality of relations with European countries, including opening an EU office in Tehran, has turned into a controversy and subject of a new conflict between Iranian regime’s two rival bands.
This is while the US president explicitly states that he does not approve the nuclear deal (JCPOA) unless it goes under revision, and if the US Congress and the EU fail to do that, he willpull the United States out of the agreement.
NCRI - President Donald Trump has upped his rhetoric on Iran regime and its belligerence in the region. He has vowed to be more confrontational with Iran regime and wants its ballistic missile program to be curbed. Furthermore, he has criticised Iran’s interference in both Syria and Yemen and has said that the regime must be punished.
Last month President Trump decided that he was not going to recertify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal. This has left Congress with the decision about whether to reimpose the crippling economic sanctions that were in place before the deal was signed. The decision will have to be announced by mid-December.
NCRI - Just over two weeks ago, UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, began its 39th conference in France. UNESCO’s aim is to promote peace and tolerance in the world. The basis for this is cooperation and multilateralism, with all member nations cooperating.
Irina Bokova, the Director General of UNESCO, said that the organisation has solutions to offer faced with the rise of extremism that we see nowadays. She said that with this new trend of extremism, hatred is stirred up, but emphasised that UNESCO exists to fight back against the “new forms of racism and intolerance” that are emerging.
NCRI - The French Foreign Ministry has stated that it is imperative to the stability of the Middle East that Iran stop interfering in the domestic affairs of Lebanon.
Agnes Romatet-Espagne, the foreign ministry spokesperson told reporters in a daily briefing on Monday: “We wish that all those who exert an influence in Lebanon allow all the political actors in this country to exercise fully their responsibilities.
NCRI - Recent developments in the Middle East show that the Iranian Regime is becoming increasingly isolated as countries like Lebanon and Yemen are turning away from them but could this be the beginning of the end for Iran’s interventionism?
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri unexpectedly resigned in a shock conference from Saudi Arabia at the beginning of the month, only one day after Hariri met with Ali Akbar Velayati, international affairs advisor of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, citing Iran’s malign influence over Hezbollah ( a terrorist group which has major sway in Lebanon) and a potential assassination plot.
