EU cannot jeopardize its security for vague US policy towards Iran
The new administration in the US took office on 20 January, 2021. US president, Joe Biden, reinstated Paris climate agreement and US participation in the World Health Organization from the first day of his appointment. However, the US policy towards Iran is not as straightforward as it was echoed in the west. Although the new construction of the secretary of state in the US includes most of Obama’s negotiation team for the Iran deal, a clear and determined policy towards Iran has not been declared yet. Of course, Biden is committed to reviving JCPOA, but the time is limited, writes Ali Bagheri.

On Saturday 12 September, 27-year-old Navid Afkari, an Iranian wrestling champion who was arrested during the August 2018 protests, was killed by the Iranian regime in prison. In trumped up charges and with no evidence against him, they tortured Navid to force a confession. He shouted in court that he had been tortured and asked for any evidence against him, but they had none. Despite a mass online campaign led by Iranians themselves, which attracted support from the sporting world, world leaders and human rights organisations standing together to try to stop his execution, they killed him and forced his family to bury him in silence. He was denied due process, a fair trial and according to recent reports, severely tortured before his execution, writes Amir Seifi.
Death is 'Ayatollah's trade'
However, every deal with the Iranian regime, JCPOA on the top of them, has failed to live long because of the irresponsible behavior of the Iranian regime. In fact, Iran fails to follow international norms and regulations. But, why does Iran fail to stay in the framework of the international community despite a strong enthusiasm by EU and US towards Iran?
