Iran to dominate Tillerson's talks in Europe: Western media

Tehran, Jan 20, IRNA – Iran will dominate many of US Secretary State Rex Tillerson’s talks in Europe next week, when visiting London, Paris, Warsaw and Davos, said a senior US State Department official on Friday.

“Inevitably, Iran will dominate a lot of the conversations that the secretary has with our NATO allies and partners in Europe,” the official told Reuters, on condition of anonymity.

“We really emphasize close coordination with the British, in particular, and the French in our efforts to close the gaps (in the Iran nuclear deal) and in next steps on how we curtain Iranian malign influence in the (Middle East) region, so I think that will be a very high priority of his conversation.”

While the American official calls Iranian regional influence 'malign', It's crystal clear that the US interventionist policies in the Middle East in the past decads have brought the most destruction to the region.

The US President Donald Trump just recently reaffirmed Iran's sanctions relief but threatened that he won't do the same and will unilaterally call off the Iran nuclera deal also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, unless there is an agreement on the Iran Missile Program in the coming 120 days. Other signatories of the deal reacted against the decision.
