Qatar is ready to mediate between the US and Iran

Israel’s prime minister has rejected suggestions that the US leader has deliberately not called him since taking office on January 20

Qatari Foreign Minister met with his Iranian counterpart on Monday after Doha announced its intention to mediate between Tehran and Washington on the nuclear deal.

The meeting comes at a time when the future of the 2015 deal between Iran and world powers, limiting Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting international sanctions, hangs in the balance.

Doha, a U.S. ally, also maintains good relations with Tehran.

Sheikh of Qatar Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani met in Tehran with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the agreement with Iran in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Tehran, which, in retaliation, suspended most of its key commitments..

The White House administration has expressed willingness to return to the agreement, but has insisted that Iran first resume full compliance with the terms of the agreement, while Tehran has called for an immediate lifting of sanctions..

Iran said it would restrict inspections in late February unless U.S. sanctions are lifted or other parties to the deal help Tehran bypass them, according to a law passed by the country’s parliament in December.

Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Kazem Garibabadi, tweeted on Monday that the law will be respected from the moment it enters into force on February 23..

An IAEA spokesman told AFP that “the agency’s director general, Rafael Mariano Grossi, will report to the Board of Governors, and communicate with the Iranian authorities.”.
