London, 21 Aug - The pro-Iran Lobby in the US has warned against conflating the Iranian and North Korean regimes, claiming that Iran does not have access to nuclear weapons.

Reza Marashi of the National Iranian American Council. (NIAC) recently wrote: “First, conflating Pyongyang and Tehran is troublesome for an obvious reason: One has the bomb, and the other does not.”

However, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Iranian lawmakers last week, if Iran walked away from the 2015 nuclear deal it could restart its nuclear programme in mere hours and have access to a bomb in little time.

London, 18 Aug - As Iranian President Rouhani introduced his new cabinet to parliament on Tuesday, he made remarks that showed his concern over the consequences of new sanctions for human rights abuses, export of terrorism, and ballistic missile development. However, his remarks also revealed that regime has not abandoned the nuclear weapons program.

He warned, “If Americans want to return to those experiences, Iran certainly in a short time – not weeks and months but hours and days - will return to a more advanced situation than the start of negotiations.”

London, 17 Aug - The Iranian Regime colluded with Russia in order to violate UN sanctions with regard to the 2015 nuclear deal, according to reports by German media and state intelligence agencies.

Iran and Russia used a secret smuggling route to transfer illegal weapons in violation of UN Resolution 2231, according to German’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

Their report, published on Sunday, read: “In June, two aeroplanes from Iran flew directly to the Khmeimim Air Base [southeast of Latakia] – the most important Russian military base in Syria – in order to bring the military equipment for transport to Russia.”

London, 14 Aug - American sanctions on Iran are a step in the right direction but they must be coupled with a whole new policy on the Iranian Regime, according to a human rights activist.

Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of the Washington office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, wrote an op-ed on Fox News in which he welcomed the US sanctions against the Iranian Regime but advised the government to also support the Iranian people’s resistance.
