Iran to stay in nuclear deal only if it serves its interests: Deputy FM

“What matters to us is to make sure that staying in the accord is in the interest of our country,” Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi said in Vienna on Monday. “Iran will remain committed to the nuclear deal if the remaining signatories to the JCPOA abide by their commitments,” he noted, referring to the accord by the acronym of its official name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Araqchi also said that Tehran is willing to preserve the JCPOA despite the United States withdrawal from the deal and its restrictive measures against the Islamic Republic. The official, who is in Vienna at the invitation of his Austrian counterpart Johannes Peterlik, had earlier met with Yukiya Amano, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). During the meeting, he consulted with Amano about the latest state of Tehran’s cooperation with the IAEA. He said the Islamic Republic expected that the watchdog continues to act impartially and professionally, retaining its independence in the face of disruptive external pressure. Amano, for his part, expressed satisfaction concerning the level of cooperation between his organization and Iran in the implementation of the nuclear deal, and hoped that the cooperation continues. Separately, Araqchi voiced hope that the European Union, which coordinated the talks leading to the deal, heeds its “momentous historical” duty towards the accord, and restores the balance lost between the commitments and dividends associated with it “as soon as possible.” Otherwise, he said, there would be no reason for the Islamic Republic to keep honoring the agreement. The agreement was signed between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries -- the United States, the UK, France, Russia, and China, plus Germany -- in the Austrian capital after marathon negotiations. It removed nuclear-related sanctions against Iran, which, in turn, changed certain aspects of its nuclear energy program. The IAEA has, so far, endorsed Iran’s commitment to the JCPOA on 13 occasions. The US, however, unilaterally left the deal last May, although the agreement has been ratified in the form of a United Nations Security Council resolution. It later reintroduced the sanctions that had been relieved under the deal. The EU is working on a mechanism to facilitate financial transactions between Iran and European enterprises despite the American bans. Also on Monday, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said consultations continued among his country, France, Britain, and the EU concerning the special purpose vehicle (SPV) mechanism, adding it will be established soon.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
