The Iranian Americans for Liberty (IAL)’s Executive Director Bryan E. Leib and The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA)’s National President Morton A. Klein issued the below joint press release regarding the failed 7th round of nuclear talks in Vienna:
“Senior diplomats from France, Britain and Germany that were in Vienna last week have voiced “disappointment and concern” at the Islamic Republic’s proposed alterations to a text that had been agreed on in previous rounds. Secretary Antony Blinken has announced that Special Envoy Robert Malley and his team have returned to the United States after the Vienna talks collapsed.
We are not shocked in the least that the Islamic Republic’s representatives have backtracked on the previously agreed points. This deception is part of their playbook and we expected this would be . The Islamic Republic has shown the world time and time again they cannot be trusted and that they are not negotiating in good faith.
“The time is now for President Joe Biden to immediately pivot back to a maximum pressure campaign against the Islamic Republic because strength, not appeasement, is the only language that works with the Mullahs.
“The State Department must stop placing any level of faith in a terrorist regime that has the blood of Americans, Israelis and others, including the Iranian people on their hands.”
