Since new US President Donald Trump sees a nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group as contrary to American interests, he is trying to find a way to abolish the international agreement, says Peter Koenig, a geopolitical analyst from Lima, Peru.
“You cannot believe any agreement that they (US officials) signed even if they are not the only signatory, after all there are P5+1 group plus obviously Iran that have signed that deal,” Koenig told Press TV on Friday night.
“Everything that comes out of Washington is just a sheer lie. There is nothing that can be believed that comes out of Washington, when it does not serve their interests,” he added.
Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China - plus Germany - signed the landmark nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015 and started implementing it on January 16, 2016.
What the American authorities need is “a pretext probably to go to war” with Iran; so, “they are lying about the Islamic Republic not adhering to the conditions of the nuclear agreement,” he argued.
“It is a demonization of Iran as they are doing the same thing with Russia, China and every country that is not following their dictate", he noted.
Someone “who is behind all this (anti-Iran policies) is Trump’s very close friend [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, the commentator said.
