Majid Asgaripour/WANA (West Asia News Agency) via REUTERS/File Photo(Reuters) - Iran’s Health Ministry on Saturday reported a slowdown in coronavirus infections, saying that 89 of 160 cities were out of the designated high risk category. “I thank our dear people for taking the appropriate precautions and tolerating the restrictions,” deputy health minister Alireza Raisi said on state TV, adding that public adherence was 90 percent. Still, the government on Saturday announced the closure of most non-essential government offices in an effort to stem the spread of the virus. A health ministry spokeswoman reported 13,402 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, pushing the national tally to 935,799 in the Middle East’s worst-hit country.

The killing, which Iran’s president was swift to blame on Israel, threatens to spark a new Middle East confrontation in the final weeks of U.S. President Donald Trump’s term. Trump pulled Washington out of the 2015 international nuclear pact agreed with Tehran. He was the only Iranian scientist named in the IAEA’s 2015 “final assessment” of open questions about Iran’s nuclear programme. It said he oversaw activities “in support of a possible military dimension to (Iran’s) nuclear programme”. He was a central figure in a presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2018 accusing Iran of continuing to seek nuclear weapons.

President Hassan Rouhani has said that Iran will respond in a manner and at a time of its own choosing. With temperatures running so high, the incoming Biden administration now faces a serious challenge. Britain, France and Germany should seek a swift convening of the commission that monitors implementation of the Iran nuclear agreement. The Johnson administration gave Iran its first small nuclear research reactor a decade later. In the more than 60 years since Iran’s nuclear efforts began, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea have all developed bombs.

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.
