"I know that this is something that's gotten a lot of attention in Israel has gotten next to none here in the United States. Adam credo reporting yesterday that U.S. Iran envoy Robert malley, whose name is very familiar to those of us who follow these things, says that the Biden administration is preparing for, quote, a world where Iran doesn't have constraints on its nuclear program. Comments that show how little progress has been made in negotiation with Tehran regarding a return to the JCPOA the 2015 Barack Obama ran deal. Doctor Oren, I mean, if that deal had remained in place, we'd still be dealing with in Iran didn't have any constraints on its nuclear weapons program. I mean, I think that that's one thing that should be said right off the bat. That deal wasn't going to prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons. It only it only had a ten year pause in it, maybe. And that's only if you believed Iran was complying with it. Yes, that's true. It was ultimately going to his line was ultimately going to have an unlimited nuclear program. The big difference was that while it restrained itself somewhat, and some aspects of the program, just on the nuclear enrichment, not a missile development, not on the development of advanced centrifuges, not on developer warheads, didn't do anything about any of that. But when I was going to get paid a 100 billions of dollars that it wasn't going to spend on schools and hospitals, you can believe that. I think the major thing that rob valley is saying, believe it or not is the truth and the truth that has been around for a long time. I've been talking about on these really news. And that is the United States is willing to coexist with an Iran that has threshold capacity. I mean, the ability is created a bomb within a matter of weeks, because you've been a matter of days. Among the professionals, if referred to as Japan like capabilities, there's Japan has that capability, but of course, you can't threaten to wipe anybody off the map or is not supporting financial payers. Big difference. America, that's what's important Biden or other Americans as they say, you know, Iran will never get a bomb on our watch. Yeah, but do they have the ability to make one real quickly? So America may be just for the threshold capacity law. If you can like people honestly will, but as you can simply can, every single war with Hamas, Iran can have threatened to break it out, and this could be a huge constraint on our ability to defend ourselves. And I definitely won't even get a bomb. It won't be satisfied with threshold capacity. Well, doctor ordon, I mean, the problem here is multi fold, really. First off, Iran's IRGC having a nuclear weapons is one concern. But the bigger concern I think, especially for Israel is that Hezbollah and Hamas will get nuclear weapons clandestinely and deploy them without Iranian fingerprints on them. And I mean, there are literally on your doorstep, Iran is at least some distance away. That's, I think the biggest concern am I correct about that? You are correct. So Iran can hit the threshold capacity. Maybe it doesn't break out. But it could pass on nuclear technologies to its proxies to his ball of the Hamas. They could develop for what we know tactical nuclear weapons. And right on our order. In reality, well, we don't have a nuclear weapon. These guys, hey, we don't have anything to do with these guys. And that was just real with an existential threat. So Iran having a threshold capacity is just intolerable for this country. And it's interesting yesterday, the foreign minister Europeans met with 20 blank in the Secretary of State. And he was up front about it because we will not let Iran have a threshold for that to the English line. Quite say that. He said that all Washington could be on the table. He did not repeat what signal and you would also say was that all optimism. Administration does not say that anymore. And he's actually pressed by a journalist blinking was to save the options include a military option. He does the question. Well, that doesn't surprise me. What's the debate been Israel on this? Clearly, the American media is not doing a great job of covering this particular development, but in Israel, I know they're very concerned. What's the debate been like there about what the options are? It's not even a debate that the truth is really focused on other things. I'm running for being the head of the Jewish agency, the largest Jewish philanthropy in the world. That is from page news every day. No one has wants to be think about the Iranian issue. Press conference yesterday. I thought it was hugely significant. Hugely significant. Maybe it's just too awful to contemplate. But as the winter comes and the skies cloud up in our air force can operate at the same set of freedom as one during the summer in the spring and Iran reaches military grade in Richmond. Their ability to break out while the world is occupied with something else, maybe there'll be a storm somewhere, maybe they'll be an earthquake. And then you wake up from morning, Iran is a nuclear power. It is just like that. That's how the North Koreans even have the Indians. And but we're up. How was it? Completely intolerable situation. And this was the reason why we were applying the sanctions on one of the reasons why we were playing the sanctions on Iran that we were Robert malley just really briefly, we only got a couple of seconds left Robert melly was saying that he would have dropped all the sanctions. Doctor Oren, I got ten seconds to let you respond to that. Yeah, of course. I think we'll do anything possible to get that agreement back. Knowing that in the end, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. Doctor Michael oran, thank you so much for joining us. We're going to stay tuned on that story, believe me..

Iran's President-Elect Says Talking About Missiles Is 'Off Limits'

"On Iran is getting ready for another round of indirect talks aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal. But a newly elected president of Iran doesn't want to take on other issues The Americans are hoping to discuss. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports hardliner Ibrahim Breezy, will be sworn in as Iran's president in August, and he's already making clear that some topics are off limits like the country's missile program. But the Biden administration wants to talk about missiles and get a better nuclear deal with Iran. The first step is getting back into the one the Trump administration left. That job falls to US envoy Robert Malley. I don't think that this window is going to be open forever at some point will have to conclude that this is not succeeding, but we're not there yet. We still think that it's that it's possible. We still think that it's certainly in our interest. We think it's in Iran's interest to, but they'll have to make that decision for themselves. In an interview to air on Fridays morning edition, Malle says the negotiations in Vienna have been tough. Iran wants more financial relief than the U. S. Is willing to offer and the U. S. Wants to. In Malley's words, rewind the tape on work Iran has done since the Trump administration left the deal like building its supply of nuclear fuel. Get back to where we were in 2016. With a cap on on the levels of enrichment, with the cap on what centrifuges they could use and rich with a cap on the amount of enriched uranium they could have. And with the IAEA, the nuclear inspectors being able to monitor Everything they're doing, which is not occurring today. Iran refuses to meet US diplomats, O'Malley passes messages through European diplomats He's also raising the cases of detained Americans, though Biden administration officials insist that this is separate from the nuclear diplomacy.

"That arafat refused. This is the standard line. So robert malley had written a few articles trying to provide a different narrative which was to say that it is really not true that it was very quote unquote generous offer on the table. So this is really what churned. Robert malley in do ten of a bit to the controversial figure because he had gone against the dominant narrative and so prior to his being picked by now president biden as the special representative for iran. And incidentally this is a position that doesn't require senate confirmation. They were still attacks in the media against mali. Saying that molly is going to picked for that position and again the the the accusation was that mali's like to beef too soft on on iran and to prompt to make to make a deal. So this is briefly. The background of robert malley with otherwise. It's an eminently qualified person for for that role. He knows many of the actors and he has proved to be very effective as as negotiator. But still i think that a nurse criticism of him if that he's likely to come to an agreement so the american right. The hawks are fundamentally opposed to any kind of revival of the iran. Deal that would that would be fair to say that. That is sort of adding fuel to the fire because molly to them represents someone who might be too conciliatory as they would see it to around but in fact any any attempt to to get it off the ground again or to get the us reinserted into it would be taken as as provocative to them very much so and what the listeners should should be aware of is that they are still quite a few people in the us certainly they were quite dominant in the trump administration who did not want an agreement with iran because what they wanted was quote unquote regime change in iran that is their objective was to get the islamic republic out of the picture to get a different regime in place. One thing that this faction of public opinion and public policy doesn't take into account the fact that the more the us called for regime change the less likely. It is to happen despite the fact that there's obviously a huge segment of the iranian population. Who's very dissatisfied with the regime in place but coming from a us perspective recommendation that you should change regime any kind of regime that would be actually approved by the us would almost by definition of your rejected by by the iranians. And of course things didn't stay still in iran jarring the trump years things were evolving within the country and also in response to what was happening outside the country in what was being done to the country and.

But 70% of Republicans Don't even though the election wasn't close, they believe the falsehood that somehow Trump won and had the election stolen from him.

"All things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. Try to walk towards the U. S capitol or the White House today and blocks before you get there. You will hit a security perimeter, concrete barriers, armored trucks, armed security. City is braced, of course for disruptions in the run up to Joe Biden swearing in braced for a possible repeat of violence from right wing rioters. Well, whatever happens or hopefully does not happen with the inauguration. The challenge of combating domestic violent extremism is not going away, and as of two days from now, it will like every other National security challenge fall to the incoming Biden team. Which prompts us now to take a look at what new ideas The Biden team may bring to the table. And for that, we're joined by Mary McCord. She was acting assistant attorney general for National security at the Justice Department. Mary McCord welcome. Thank you for having me. I'm going to start broad and then get specific. Do we know yet whether the Biden administration might take a dramatically different approach to this threat than the outgoing administration has? I think we know that the new administration will simply because if you think back to the launch of Biden's campaign he launched by men talking about Charlotte's bills unite the right rally, which, of course, was a He in devastating example of domestic political violence and extremism. And so although we haven't heard any specific announcements yet, I think from the very beginning, you will see an emphasis on the threat that is posed by domestic violent extremism. Now. This will of course, be a area that various agencies and departments across the federal government will be working on, but I want to call attention to one person who will be playing a prominent role. Rust. Trevor's the incoming deputy homeland security director for for president Biden. He was head of the National Counterterrorism Center until he was fired last year under the Trump administration. On do over the summer. This past summer, he made what now appears a very prescient prediction, he said. If the president loses the presidential election Russ Travers said. I wouldn't be surprised if right wing domestic terrorist group stage attacks, which is, of course, is exactly what we've now seen. That's right. And of course, I think Russ is a great appointment. You know, he understands that you need to bring a whole of government and frankly hole of community, not just government and certainly not just federal government. But also state local etcetera. You need to bring that approach to this problem set. Kind of like an international terrorism. You had to bring Ah, hole of the international community as well as the U. S community to the problem set and you know, although he was prescient, he wasn't the only one. I mean, There's been a lot of us that have been talking for some time. Now about the danger of the you know the expanding Recruitment and and, you know, propagandizing of the far right in this country and some of the radicalization toward violence that we've seen it. We've seen it escalating through this year. You're talking about a whole of government approach. But of course, ultimately someone has to take the lead wandering around downtown. Do you see this past weekend? I was struck by all the big wanted posters at bus stops, which reads seeking information on the assault of the U. S capitol, and they give the number to call and it is 1 800 call FBI because the FBI currently has the lead role in countering terrorism in the U. S. Is that the right set up is that something that the incoming team might look at changing, maybe standing up a new agency to deal with an emerging threat? I don't know that we need a new agency. But I think what we're going to see is the so much information is going to come out of these current. In fact, investigations and this invest this information needs to be shared broadly because there are lots of tools that can be used and we need to have accountability. Whether it's federal level accountability, State level accountability, local level accountability and we have to have prevention and we're gonna learn a lot. You know, if you just read the complaints that have been filed so far in federal court in an instant in local court, you're gonna learn a lot about the sources and roots of the problem. Okay, that is Mary McCord. She was an acting assistant attorney general for national security at the Justice Department. She's now at the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection. Mary McCord, Thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Thank you for having me. To Europe now, where Europeans are welcoming the new Biden administration, in particular its top diplomat, Anthony Blinken, He's the nominee for secretary of state. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports that in France, they see Blinken as one of their own. Europeans say Secretary of state Mike Pompeo didn't take the European Union seriously. They had a hard time connecting with the hawkish evangelist from Kansas, but they believe things will be different with Tony Blinken. I think it will be like day that's Ian, Lesser, vice president of the German Marshall Fund of the United States, a think tank that promotes US European cooperation. The selection of Tony Blinken is been greeted with tremendous enthusiasm in Brussels. But you know, it is part in parcel of the sense that after four very difficult years, there's an opportunity to set things back on course not only in terms of style but also in terms of substance. Lester says One key policy change they're looking forward to the U. S. Is immediate return to the Paris climate accord in France. There, particularly looking forward to working with Blinken. He spent much of his school age youth in Paris and speaks native French. That's not all, says former French Prime Minister Jean Pierre Raffarin, who's known Blinken since he served in the Clinton administration in the nineties. No ceremony. The popular Front for coffee is not only Francophone is also a sympathy person. He knows how to listen. And he's not arrogant is respectful in Europe. We appreciate that, and he knows it.

Robert Malley, president and CEO of an international crisis group. Do stay with us. Thanks for your insight. So far, I think we could go back to Riyadh and join these do set. Lee's just tell us why this is such a tricky meeting for the Saudis toe say Yes, indeed, it has taken place. Our news harvesters may remember the reporting on what are called the Abraham Accords. Historic peace deals, normalizing relations between the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in the Gulf. So the Neighbors and allies of Saudi Arabia, and it's being asked repeatedly will the Saudi kingdom the jewel in the crown for Israel also normalized relations and it was always said it's simply too sensitive because The Saudi king is not in favor of it. He does not want to be seen to be turning his back on the Palestinians, and also he's not just the king of Saudi Arabia. He also holds the position of the custodian of the two holiest mosques in Islam, Mecca and Medina. And therefore in these, he has to be mindful off the reaction in the in the Islamic world, and that is why this is so sensitive and we have this curious situation now where we have two conflicting accounts of whether the meeting took place it all on given that we have those conflicting narratives going on. I mean, presumably the Saudis. Won't really know what what to say. And how to how to frame What has we assume he clearly has taken place? The Israelis have no reason T lie even if it was a meeting taking place in secret. Well, they're conservative Kingdom took a thoroughly modern method to issue their first denial and maybe the only denial in public, which is the tweets. I Prince Faisal Bin Farhaan saying regarding those media reports that no meeting occurred and I've sent messages to senior Saudi official and I said, Well, Somebody is giving fake news and they said Well, the situation is clear cuts. It's not us. Dude. Does the aviation tracking data live? Let's go to the fax this This is how this story broke. It was a plane spotter tweeting about an absolutely rare flight direct flight between the Israeli coastal city of Tel Aviv. And the Saudi coastal city of Neon had taken place and it was also established that the aircraft was a private jet that had been used by Benjamin Netanyahu before for his for his visits, including to see Vladimir Putin. So the question was well, who went to neon. That in itself was very, very interesting, sensitive and crucial. And then it was Thies really journalists you can keep. It is very hard hard to keep a secret in Israel, who first broke the story, saying that they had been told that not just Benjamin Netanyahu, but the head of Mossad had been on a few hours visit. Highly significant, highly sensitive a great coup for these radios to neon. So that is the Saudis found themselves. I mean, either they're either there's been an agreement not to leak it to the Israeli defense minister whose arrival off rival and ally Of Benjamin Netanyahu, sort of accused Netanyahu of leaking this information. Okay, causing this huge political and diplomatic spat now leads to set in Riyadh and Rob Malley in the United States. Thanks both always very useful to.

I think that is the diplomat and Tony, who tries to Put himself in other people's shoes and what is going to insist very much on a resumption of multilateral, very transatlantic view of the world. So all those people who have been so nervous on terrified by the damage that they perceived the Trump administration had done to international alliances, institutions internationally collaboration and so on. Will be very pleased that Antony Blinken is the man who is tipped to be the secretary of state. It is true, though, isn't it? That foreign policy may not actually be Joe Biden's pressing issue, given the impact of covert 19 in the United States. Correct. I mean his priority. I think the part of the administration is going to be domestic because of the health implications of the pandemic and the economic implications of the pandemic. I mean, we're facing a as much of the world is a severe economic crisis. And I'm not having mentioned that the racial tensions and the polarization of a country that has gone through an election, the result of which is still not been acknowledged by the by the sitting president and many of his followers, so the party's going to be domestic. Joe Biden is somebody who is a senator. As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Foreign policy is in his DNA's A Tony Blinken is probably his closest partner. When it comes to Ah, colleague when it comes to foreign policy, So I think you're going to see a big emphasis on the themes that you just mentioned, which is re stitching multilateral alliances. Resuming U. S participation in some of the treaties and some of the organizations that President Trump withdrew from. But both the president and Antoni if he is, in fact, if he does become secretary of state are going to face a world that is very different from the world that they were they were participating in the Obama administration is short four years ago. Image of the United States the credibility of the United States the fragmentation of the world order. Everything has accelerated over the last four years. Well, let's talk about some of the treaties that he might decide to rejoin. We we know that on on climate change, he is going to rejoin the Paris accord. It's also been reported that Jake Sullivan, another Joe Biden adviser, is expected to be named his national security advisor. And in the context of the J C P o a the Iran nuclear deal. The combination Of Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan. Pretty significant. And let's not forget that as you're buying himself, wrote an article not long ago in which he said that the U. S. Should rejoin the JCP away if Iran agrees toe come back into compliance with his provisions. So that has been a commitment that he made during the campaign. It's by the way, the position that I think every other maybe, with one exception, every other candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination made So I think it is. The intent of it would be the intent of the administration to come back in. Now That's easier said than done. They're going to be obstacles. Iran is not in compliance, President Trump has added and continues to add weekly a huge number of sanctions that are going to be Difficult to deal with. But the intense that projector I think has been clear. And as you say, with both Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan again, if both of them if the rumors are confirmed, I think you have a pretty strong sense that That's what the United States is going to try to do, and we'll work with European partners and others to get there.

"At the United Nations. The Trump administration wanted support to restore economic sanctions on Iran. European nations as the U. N. Security Council were having none of it. It was a humiliating defeat for Washington. Robert Malley is here to help us make sense of this rift. He's a former White House negotiator for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and the current president of the International Crisis Group in Brussels. Robert. Why are European nations rejecting Washington's request for more sanctions? Well, I think it's going to take a step back and and try to look at what the Trump administration was trying to do. President withdrew from disagreement some time ago and value to the agreement by reimposing unilateral U. S sanctions even though Iran at the time had been living up to the deal. That is not just me saying it. The U. S. Was saying it itself. The nuclear inspectors were saying it as well. So the US withdraws from the deal and then comes back a year or two later and says. We now want invoke a provision of this deal that we have withdrawn from him that we have violated in order to force other countries. The U. N system as a whole to reimpose collective sanctions on Iran and European countries have been saying for some time. Something that says you do not have the ability to bring back these sanctions since you walked away from the deal under which these sanctions were going to be re important, but at the same time Iran is violating the terms of the 2015 around nuclear deal. So why not hold him to it? I mean, the European countries are trying have invoked a dispute resolution mechanism in the deal itself to try to work out this problem with the rains. That's the way to tell is supposed to work. Iran into European nations and others. Russia and China are supposed to sit down, which they have done episodic in covert. 19 has since gotten in the way, so they still keep the calibrating the response. But it just doesn't compute for Europeans and they told the U. S. For a long time. Let's try to work together to try to resolve this rather than you going your own way and violating the deal withdrawn from the deal. And then, as I said, invoking A provision of the deal to try to reimpose sanctions. But why can't the remaining countries who are in the deal with Iran? Why can't they snap back the sanctions? They could. Of course, we could send back the sanctions. They certainly would be in their right to snap back the sanctions. They just don't see the logic to snapping back sanctions against the country that had been faithfully respecting the provisions of the deal until the U. S withdrew. From their view is the best way to get back into compliance is for the U. S. Two. Restore its sanctions relief and for Iran to come back into compliance with the deal, But they're hard to imagine that happening under the trump. Well, yeah, it's not. So where does that leave? The European countries were still part of the deal? What's the strategy? It is them ism in a waiting game. They want to see. You know the vote that happened of Security Council was one vote. The important one is the one that's gonna happen in the U. S on November 3rd and they want they're waiting to see as so many whether vice President Joe Biden is elected or President. Trump has re elected vice president Biden is elected he has committed To returning to the in which case if Iran returns into compliance, we're back to no more or less where we were before, and if they don't then the Europeans might well consider reimposing sanctions. If President Trump is elected. I think their view is the secure. The nuclear deal is buried. And at that point, let's turn the page and see where we go. Just happened to you and Was an exercise to buy time by the Europeans and others. Let's see what happened in November and see whether the nuclear deal can live to fight another day in job after General 20. Okay, let's turn to Russia and China Since the nuclear deal was signed in 2015, Russia and China have kind of changed their behavior toward Iran, and they're reportedly now interested in resuming arms sales to Tehran. How do you see their change of heart towards their own? Not that it's really change of heart. I think they've always wanted to maintain strong relations with the RAF, although they were concerned by the prospect of Iran developing a nuclear weapon, I've suspected you might see some arm cells to Iran occurring and the conventional weapons in balance between Iran and neighbors is such a lot would have to do a lot to make up. I think this is not necessarily going to be a game changer. I don't expect that we're going to see a major arms purchase from Iran's simply because they are suffering from huge economic problems of their own. What could this diplomatic standoff mean for the future of the Security Council? You know, it's not good for the Security Council security because we really are in analysis in Wonderland world where the U. S is going to say, 30 days from now, the U. S will say sanctions back the rest of the council and the rest of the world will say no, That's not the case And so you'll live into with two parallel universes. That's not good, but let's also put it in perspective. It's not the first time the Security Council has gone through a crisis. Just think back to the Iraq war, so there have been other cases. Where the council has got through huge divisions. I think there's two lessons to be drawn. We're going to see those crises and the Security Council will survive them. On the other hand, the Security Council is not that effective a body when the main powers that comprise it are not able to speak in one voice that's reflected in the Security Council, which is simply a mirror image of the state of global politics.

"Europeans well now that you've triggered this another you're gonna see Iran is not going to grant into compliance it's time to reimpose sanctions today trying to buy time but they risk being squeezed by both Iran and the United States well when you say that trying to buy time I mean how much totally missed that because if it if it is a risky strategy it's quite likely that it'll fail not least in the light of what we were hearing from a previous speaker that already the hardline elements inside Iran appear to be providing correct I mean they they have as they say they have a they have a few months maybe they could try to extend beyond the because they don't there's no obligation to reimpose sanctions adjust the pressure will will rise if they cannot resolve this issue and if Iran continues to be in breach of of provisions of the nuclear deal so they are putting a little bit a gun to their own head of by a by starting this clock but as you say I mean that there's a very real risk that the the deal collapses crisis group every year publishes its report that looks back at what's what the status of the J. superiors and not coincidentally the title of the one we're coming out with tomorrow is called a requiem question mark because the odds of this deal surviving are getting lower and lower by the day a grim picture painted that by Robert Malley president of the international crisis group former special assistant to president Barack Obama who of course that led the United States toward signing that deal in the first place say you're listening to the BBC world service I'm resit call this is news out it's the BBC news hour on WNYC in New York the Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments on the bridge gate case today in coming up on the Brian Lehrer show here what the legal issues are in that case and another on this week's stock it is age discrimination we'll have that plus the environmental and human costs of the fires in Australia that's the Brian Lehrer show coming up at ten o'clock this morning here on WNYC there's a fifty percent chance of rain mainly after two o'clock otherwise mostly cloudy with a high near forty six degrees W.

Peace deals: conflicts can be resolved or mitigated

"Did on vietnam which was fantastic i had him on the show he was well you know i just watched it not long ago and every case is so generous but i don't think that is serious thinker about american foreign policy can still consider him herself serious and not watch it because it has lessons about how how once stumbles into war and how difficult it is to get out of them all i want to try as best i can to end on a hopeful note here let's see that their conflicts that maybe made the list last year but improved to the point that they didn't make it on the list in two thousand eighteen and what happened there or is it not necessarily a case that the crisis got better but simply that much worse crises of emerged over the past year so i mean they always there was a change as i say we try not to repeat ourselves too much i if i want to end on a note of optimism i mean they're always successes maybe the success is far less than than than the than the failures but he of the columbia peace agreement which is you know it's not solid but it we believe strongly that it needs to be needs to be supported we have the iran nuclear deal which averted a conflict which was you know if you remember in two thousand fourteen is ready prime minister was saying we'd go to war if if iran continued which with its enrichment program the obama administration was preparing war plans so there's the that is a success you know north korea i'm not saying i don't wanna be optimistic but there's a chance there's a real chance we think of trying to capitalize on what's happened now with olympic games to try to put it from the belligerent and bellicose tone to something that's more diplomatic so that always is always opportunities i mean that's not forget conflicts are made by men and women much more often by men than by women and they can be resolved by men and women and that's the mandate of our organization does not there's no conflict that is either every convict can either be resolved or it's worse impacts can be mitigated and that's what we're fighting for and we think that it this is there's always room for hope and they always are small victories even even amidst a pretty.
