Sherman Promises New Approach to Iran, Says Facts on Ground Have Changed
[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] Nominee for US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman stressed the importance of addressing Iran's nuclear ambitions, its support for terrorism and human rights
...which are usually entirely different from personal liberty...

Speaking at her Senate Foreign Relations Committee confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Sherman promised a new approach to Iran.

"With respect to Iran, as the lead of the US negotiating team for the JCPOA, I remain clear-eyed about the threat that Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence.

poses to our interests and those of our allies," Sherman said in her opening remarks.

She went on saying that the approach of the new administration must "be decided on the merits of where we are today," not nostalgia for what might have been.

The world had changed since 2016, when the deal was implemented, stressed Sherman.

"The facts on the ground have changed, the geopolitics of the region have changed, and the way forward must similarly change," she noted.

Sherman said she did not know what the administration’s ultimate Iran policy would be, but stressed that Biden was determined not to let Iran obtain a nuclear weapon.

"Iran is a long way from compliance (with the nuclear agreement), as we well know," she said.

For his part, Senator Jim Risch, the panel’s top Republican, also called for bipartisan policy and said he opposed a return to the nuclear pact.

He stressed that Iran was testing the Biden administration, saying that Tehran should not be trusted.
