U.S. to form global coalition monitoring Iran’s activities

United States and Iran

On May 8, United States President Donald Trump announced withdrawing from the Iran Nuclear deal, which was reached in Vienna in July 2015 between Iran and the P5 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council) plus Germany and the European Union.

The United States is concerned about the agreement because it does not mention Iran's ballistic missile program, in addition to Trump's objection to the end of the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program after 10 years.

According to observers, the deal has enabled the regime in Tehran to be more powerful. It uses the assets released after the deal to finance terror groups and form militias across the region.


After withdrawing from the deal, Trump’s administration has begun to take serious actions in order to form an international coalition monitoring Iran’s nuclear and missile activities.

Observers believe that this step, announced by the U.S. administration, would completely restrict the mullahs’ regime.

During this week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will discuss the idea in his first foreign policy speech since taking office in April.

"The United States will work hard to form a global coalition. We will bring together a lot of countries from around the world with the specific goal of looking at the Iranian regime through a more realistic lens, including all of its destabilizing activities that are not just a threat to the region but a threat to the entire world”, U.S. State Department spokesperson, Heather Nauert said.

Nauert added that the coalition will not be “anti-Iran” as the United States stands firmly behind the country's people, unlike the Iranian regime and its “bad actions”.



The spokesperson said that the new coalition will be the same as the international coalition against ISIS, which was launched in 2014 and currently includes 75 countries. Nauert did not determine whether the new coalition against the Iranian regime will also take military actions or not.

She said that the State Department had received about 200 foreign ambassadors to explain to them the decision of U.S. President Donald Trump to pull out his country of the Iran nuclear agreement signed in 2015, as well as discussing the Unites States’ next steps.

In response to a question about the willingness of Europeans to participate in this new coalition despite their rejection of Washington's decision to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran, the State Department confirmed that many of United States’ partners "fully understand" the U.S. concerns and "do not overlook" the Iranian position.


Writer and political analyst at Tehran University, Hussein Roui Waran said that The United States tries to form a coalition with new frameworks due to the existence of a current alliance between Israel and the Gulf States, stressing that nothing will change in the region after the formation of the new coalition.

An expert on regional affairs at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, Mohamed Ezz Al-Arab said that the United States is trying to create a coalition that include some of anti-Iran countries such as Saudi Arabia, United Arab of Emirates and Bahrain.

Observers who spoke to The Baghdad Post confirmed that the new coalition against Iran will be the same as the international coalition against ISIS, stressing that Tehran will be targeted military.

The observers pointed out that the coalition against Iran will expose the mullahs regime’s “real face” to the world, as it support and finance terrorism.
