Iran is doubling down on earlier threats by now claiming that not just nuclear sanctions must be lifted but rather all sanctions must be lifted before they will speak with President Joe Biden.
“Officials in Iran once again debunked claims by the U.S. State Department and friendly media that the Biden Administration is in ‘indirect’ talks with Tehran on Wednesday, stating the Islamic regime has nothing to discuss without an end to every American sanction on the rogue state,” reports Breitbart News.
The Biden administration earlier said they were sending an envoy to speak with Iran at a conference but “Iranian officials quickly dismissed this claim, asserting that ‘no representative from the United States will attend the Joint Commission meeting or related expert meetings and no direct and indirect negotiations with the United States are on the agenda of Iran’s delegation.'”
This is a poor look for a Biden Administration that hailed itself as respected and competent in foreign policy.
