Sputnik/Alexei Druzhinin/Kremlin via REUTERSANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday he discussed in a phone call with Russia’s Vladimir Putin the possibility of expanding efforts to maintain the Nagorno-Karabakh ceasefire to include other regional countries. The ceasefire signed on Nov. 10 halted military action in and around Nagorno-Karabakh, internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but populated by ethnic Armenians, after the worst fighting in the region since the 1990s. Turkey and Russia agreed to set up a joint centre in the region to monitor the ceasefire and Turkish parliament passed a troop deployment bill to send military observers.

But after three years of "maximum pressure" under Trump's sanctions and dramatically deepened distrust between Tehran and Washington, that may be a lot further off than it sounds. Iran's economy has contracted on average 6% each year since Trump unilaterally withdrew from the multi-country deal, brokered under the Obama administration to curb Iran's nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief. Fear of a Trump returnBut for Biden, the Iran deal is likely not a top priority post-inauguration: His first six months are set to be consumed with tackling the coronavirus pandemic and a battered U.S. economy. And within the U.S., national security experts are skeptical of real compliance from Iran if Washington dives into the deal too eagerly. "But we should probably expect Iran to take advantage of this initial goodwill rollback and to try to get as much as they can out of a Biden administration while giving very little themselves."

Biden’s staff says the former vice president aims to restore the deal provided that Iran again abides by it. Washington wants Iran to curb missile programmes which are not covered by the nuclear deal, and reduce its interventions in the Middle East. Government spokesman Ali Rabiei said on Tuesday that foreign companies were already preparing to return. “Recently, contacts about opening offices and the presence of foreign companies in Iran have increased,” Rabiei told a news conference that was streamed live on a government website.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has promised to rejoin the Iran nuclear agreement if Iran abides by the deal, but both sides will have to race against the clock and navigate a political minefield to reach that goal. Iran and the bombThe 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers lifted punishing economic sanctions on Tehran in return for strict limits on Iran's nuclear activities. If Iran returns to strict compliance with the nuclear deal, the United States would rejoin the agreement as a starting point for follow-on negotiations," Biden wrote. Iran faces shortages of medicine and medical equipment, including insulin, drugs for cancer treatment, influenza vaccine and test kits for the coronavirus, according to Iranian officials. Conservative gainsWithout a deal before Iran's June 2021 elections, Biden may have no willing counterpart to negotiate a deal.

On Jan. 2, Trump ordered the assassination by drone of one of Iran's most revered military figures, Gen. Qassem Soleimani. A critical and dangerous anniversary is fast approaching, and President Donald Trump is doing little to ease tensions. Trump hasn't conceded, but it seems clear that he will be leaving office, albeit without much grace. (France began withdrawing all its military forces from Iraq in March as the coronavirus began to spread.) Biden's ability to monitor real-time, actionable intelligence developed by U.S. agencies could give him insight into any moves Trump might be contemplating in Iran or Iraq.

Dalati Nohra/Handout via REUTERS/File PhotoDUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran would fully implement its 2015 nuclear deal if U.S. President-elect Joe Biden lifts sanctions on Tehran, which Zarif said could be done swiftly through “three executive orders”. “We are ready to discuss how the United States can re-enter the accord,” Zarif said. Biden can lift all sanctions with three executive orders.”Joe Biden has pledged to rejoin the 2015 accord, agreed by Washington when he was vice president, if Iran also returns to compliance. It began breaching the nuclear deal after President Donald Trump withdrew in 2018 and started ratcheting up unilateral sanctions on Tehran.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran’s president said on Sunday the next U.S. administration should use the opportunity to compensate for President Donald Trump’s mistakes, Iranian state TV reported after Joe Biden captured the U.S. presidency.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermidTensions have spiked between the United States and Iran since 2018, when Trump exited a nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, and then reimposed sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy. The next U.S. administration should use the opportunity to make up for past mistakes,” President Hassan Rouhani was quoted as saying. “The heroic resistance of the Iranian people proved that the policy of maximum pressure is doomed to failure,” Rouhani said.

Economic activity remains well below what it was a year ago as a surge in coronavirus cases and new lockdowns have raised the risk of another slowdown. The country’s death tolls from the virus this week have been among some of the highest in the pandemic. Credit... Muhammad Hamed/Reuters About three million total confirmed coronavirus cases, 75,000 related deaths, and the highest weekly number of new cases since the beginning of the pandemic. Jordan reported its deadliest days since the beginning of the pandemic this week, and Turkey has recorded its highest numbers of daily new cases since May. The state requires a county to have no more than seven new daily cases per 100,000 people for two weeks before schools can fully reopen.

Getty ImagesWASHINGTON — In one week, the United States will either reelect President Donald Trump or send former Vice President Joe Biden to the White House. His policy of menacing Iran makes fully getting out of Syria and Iraq impossible," Benjamin Friedman, policy director at Defense Priorities, told CNBC. As vice president, Biden pushed for troop reductions in Afghanistan and Iraq and has since called the invasion of Iraq a "mistake." Bloomberg | Getty ImagesTensions between Washington and Tehran have mounted following Trump's withdrawal from the landmark Iran nuclear agreement calling it "the worst deal ever." Benjamin Friedman policy director at Defense PrioritiesFriedman added that under a Trump administration, Iran may restart malign activities within the region.
