US President Joe Biden’s administration is expected to announce the appointment of Robert Malley as special envoy to Iran.
Informed sources said on Thursday that the announcement would be made today or tomorrow. Robert Malley was a foreign policy adviser to former President Barack Obama’s administration.
Note that Malley served on the US National Security Council from February 2014 to January 2017. He was one of the most senior US negotiators on Iran’s nuclear program in 2015. He is also considered an expert on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. He has also been an aide to former US President Bill Clinton.
He also attended the 2000 Tripartite Summit at Camp David. The meeting was held between US President Bill Clinton, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
Robert Malley is currently the head of the International Crisis Group. The group works on research studies on political issues and war avoidance.
New US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has made it clear that a US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal is possible only if Tehran keeps its promises it has backtracked on. In his first press conference, Blinken said that on n many fronts, Iran has lost respect for its guardianship. If it is intended to return to these guardianships, it will take some time. It will take time to assess respect for the Guardians. We are far from it right now.
Since the beginning of this year, the United States has continued to show strength in front of its rivals, especially Iran. An American B-52 bomber flew over the Gulf region. This aircraft is capable of carrying nuclear weapons. A statement from the US Central Command stated that “the purpose of this mission is to demonstrate that the US military has the capability to send airpower around the world to prevent any possible attack.”
The B-52 has flown three times in the region since the beginning of this year.
