30 Iranian dissidents write letter to Trump against Iran Deal

canada

30 Iranian dissidents have written an open letter to U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump, denouncing the internationally- backed nuclear deal with Iran.

Real iran has obtained a letter being presented soon to Trump from a group of Iranian dissidents, asking him to follow through on reconsidering the deal, even as President Obama has cautioned against ripping it up.

“During the presidential campaign, we and millions of Iranians followed your forthright objection to the nuclear agreement reached between the Obama administration and the Islamic Republic of Iran,” the letter reads.

“We sincerely hope that with your election, the new administration and the United States Congress will have the opportunity for the first time to review the regional and international outcomes of that disastrous agreement without any reservations, as was promised to the voters.”

Signatories include several former Iranian political prisoners and human rights activists such as former political prisoners Ahmad Batebi and Siavash Safavi, also a member of the Iranian Liberal Students & Graduates.

According to a report published by Fox News, Iranian dissidents are seeking to hold a meeting with Trump, but it’s unclear whether Trump has any plans to take a meeting with Iran dissidents and groups.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a source has told Fox News that senior Trump advisers such as Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani and former ambassador John Bolton have “very close ties to the strongest component of the Iranian opposition, the NCRI.”

“These advisers, though, will be pushing a cooperation with the Iranian opposition to force Iran to cooperate,” he said.

During his election campaign Trump said that the Barack Obama Administration’s nuclear agreement with Iran was disgraceful for the United States. He vowed to achieve its revision, should he be elected president.

Comment:

The news comes as many analysts say that US president-elect, Donald Trump, will not cancel the deal concluded over the Iranian nuclear program when he takes office.

Although Trump described the deal with Iran as the worst-ever in history, he may find it rather hard to sever the deal

According to analysts, neither Russia, nor China, nor the three European countries concerned will agree to abrogating the agreement without sufficient reasons.

“If the next US president will eventually dare take such a step, the Congress will be the first to laud it. But the relations with both Europe and China will turn for the worse.” the science doyen of the Institute of US and Canada Studies, Sergey Rogov says.

Finally, it appears that Iranian dissidents are trying to reach their anti-Iranian state goals, this time through a new and different way, i.e. by destroying an internationally- backed nuclear deal. But the move is neither supported by the Iranian people nor the international community.

    Well, it is “Ahmad Batebi & Co.” we are talking about here. Collaborators with Iran’s foreign enemies and intimate friends with the neocons, and occasional native informers masquerading as “dissidents”. No wonder they oppose the only thing that will prevent armed conflict with Iran.

    If anyone thinks that by sanctioning and essentially ruining the economy, peoples jobs, and wealth in Iran, it will make the Iranian people pro american, then I dont know what youre smoking. If anything, youd be playing into the hands of the government of Iran ffs and pushing people towards radicalism.

    Dumb, dumb and dumber. No self respecting person writes to Trump to call for sanction against his own people. This is wrong on so many levels I don’t know where to begin. There is a reason you don’t see a signature from any well known or experienced figure here.
    These individuals would soon look at this as one of their worst decisions.
