News about the meeting of U.S. President Donald trump with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN fade into the background, and their place is taken by the analysis and comments are almost from all over the world. He expressed his opinion about the historic summit in Singapore and Iran.
Press Secretary of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic Bahram qasemi said that “Iran wants peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and welcomes any steps in this direction.” At the same time, he said, we should not be complacent and trust the promises of Washington.
“Given past experience, first and foremost, the decision of the President of trump out of US is signed in 2015, the nuclear agreement of Iran with deep pessimism refers to all the promises of the head of the White house. North Korea should act with extreme caution. The essence of the United States is that this country it’s hard to trust”, – concluded qasemi.
It should be remembered that review of Iran on the occasion of the summit in Singapore sounded the eve of the introduction of us sanctions against the Islamic Republic, which resulted in the world oil market can not count to 500 thousand barrels of Iranian oil a day, and possibly more.
Military exercises the U.S. and South Korea will not! They were rejected by President Donald trump at the summit, U.S. – North Korea. He said that “negotiations with Pyongyang are conducted in good faith.” And he even said that at one time will definitely go there for a visit.
8 may, trump launched a 180-day countdown for the re-introduction of all anti-Iran sanctions that were eased during the reign of Obama within the framework of the nuclear deal.
Immediately after that, the Iranian authorities asked the EU for support. Despite public statements of EU leaders on solidarity with Tehran, the Europeans are afraid of retaliatory sanctions from Washington. Major companies of Europe already announced the curtailment of its work in the Islamic Republic.
Then Iran has appealed to OPEC asking the cartel to act against the “illegal, unilateral and extraterritorial sanctions,” as he described the intention of the USA the Minister of oil of Iran Bijan Zanganeh. But it is hard to expect help from the organization in which the actual leader is Saudi Arabia, a sworn enemy of Iran and a close American ally.
With regard to the Iranian advice to Pyongyang, they seem to have been ignored. North Korea continues to publicly welcome a meeting with trump and Kim, calling it a victory of the North Korean leader and the head of the White house.
“Thanks to the hard decision and the Supreme leaders of the two countries to put an end to the hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. and open a new future for the interests of the two peoples and for global peace and security, was held the first summit meeting of the DPRK-US”, – reads the statement of North Korean TV immediately after the meeting in Singapore.
Giving a detailed report on the summit, the North Korean government newspaper Rodong Sinmun said that the talks had been met “with great enthusiasm and active support of the whole world”.
In his first statement on the summit’s official news Agency KCNA stressed that a breakthrough in relations was reached thanks done this year, “loving steps” of Kim. The North Korean Agency also welcomed the offer by the trump negotiations, despite the long hostile relationship between the two countries.
On June 12 the day of the summit in Singapore, trump said that he would like in the near future to achieve the “real agreement” with Iran. “I hope that at the appropriate time, once sanctions against Iran come into force – and they will never hard – the Iranians back to the negotiating table and will reach the real agreement, I’d like to see. But now is not yet the time.”
Evaluating complex geopolitical triangle (USA, Iran and North Korea) is still unknown, will the Americans to exert pressure on the DPRK in connection with its alleged military ties with Tehran, which could be a potential barrier to improved relations between Washington and Pyongyang.
In August last year, the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme people’s Assembly Kim Yong Nam, spent 10 days in Iran, during which he met with President Hassan Rouhani and other senior officials of Iran. The American media then suggested that official trip could be a cover for military cooperation between the two rogue States.
Now, when the United States promised to lift sanctions against the DPRK, the North Korean authorities will not seek public contacts with Iran, further isolating Iran in its confrontation with America.
