Iranian Regime Shaking Under Heavy Pressure
Representatives from Iran, the EU,  the UK, France, Germany, Russia and China were scheduled to meet in Vienna on Wednesday in an effort to find some way to salvage the 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal which has progressively unravelled in recent months as Iran has taken incremental steps to violate it.“This is a chance -- though not of 100 percent -- to stop escalation before it’s too late,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

In related news, public anger against the clerical regime which rules Iran has been growing over its poor response to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak in that country.

Following announcements by several of Iran’s neighbours that they have diagnosed cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus among people who had recently returned from Iran, virtually all road, air and sea links to the Islamic Republic were blocked. In a poignant sign of the seriousness of Iran’s predicament, the country’s  deputy health minister, Iraj Harirchi, announced that he himself has contracted the disease and is self-quarantined in his home. The regime has admitted that 15 people have died of the illness while several hundred more are infected, but many Iranians have taken to social media to register their belief that the numbers are far higher.
