Ayatollah Khamenei is lone nuclear holdout after Kim’s invitation to Trump
North Korea’s Kim Jong Un invitation to meet US President Donald Trump to talk about denuclearization has left Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei high and dry. He is now the only world ruler still holding out against discussing his country’s nuclear program. Instead, the ayatollah using it as muscle for trying to impose Iran’s will on the United States in the Middle East. “Rocket man” in Pyongyang may have factored into his provocative policies the inevitability of having to face Trump at some point to discuss terms for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, while preserving his regime. His escalations were countered by the pressure of biting world sanctions, in the imposition of which even China was active. Now, Khamenei can no longer escape the realization that he will have to face the US and renegotiate the changes Trump is demanding for filling in the loopholes in the nuclear deal which Tehran signed with six world powers in 2015.
The first reference to this could be found between the lines of the message Trump posted on Twitter early Friday, March 9, after he accepted the invitation delivered from Kim by South Korean officials: “Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!”
The content of the Trump tweet closely followed the outline of the proposal delivered by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian this week to Tehran, on behalf of Presidents Emmanuel Macron and Trump, DEBKAfile’s sources report. It was brushed off within 24 hours by senior Revolutionary Guards generals and regime officials. As one of them tellingly put it: “European countries come to Tehran and say we want to negotiate with Iran over its presence in the region. It is none of your business. It is our region. Why are you here?”
While this response was brazen enough, it interestingly omitted mention of nuclear arms and ballistic missiles.
The Iranians appeared to be suggesting that when Europe (and the US) were ready to quit the Middle East, Tehran would be open to discussing its nuclear and missile programs.
The milestone opening for leader-to-leader talks between the US and North Korea – possibly in May – is a long way from substantive negotiations, or a promise of their success. There will be crises, impasses and muscle-flexing along the way, but Trump’s policy of doggedly turning the screw on the North Korean dictator by maximizing sanctions pressure produced the very breakthrough that escaped all his predecessors for six decades.

I can’t see the Iranians backing off completely, disarming their weapons or regional moves unless the west allays their fear of western “interference” in the region, which they see as targeting their not so nice regime. Israel would have to be involved in any future Iranian negotiations and the Iranians will need to accept that – at the end of the day the key stakeholders (whatever their status or ambitions or fears) would have to be talking otherwise there’s no “negotiations” for a solution and we’re talking bloody and messy and probably endless war impacting everyone in some way. This NK move gives a reasonable hint to the Iranians, albeit the Chinese would’ve probably been instrumental in this one. Despite the Iranian push back, perhaps the EU will soon unlock the same sort of thing from the Iranian perspective and get some level of engagement going. If the Palestinian issue is made less severe any excuses that Iran would use to be militarily active in the region to “support the dispossessed brothers” etc would probably help medium term.
Not many people know this, but both President Trump and Kim Jung Fugly have the same barber – who apparently Hates both guys and styles their hair with extreme prejudice.
As a side note, that barber is safe with President Trump, but look out with Kim Junk Fugly who had his Uncle and Half Brother executed because they accidentally parked in his spot.
Is that supposed to be funny?
Good development. Maybe this might free up resources for dealing with the iranian cancer.
Whose resources? Not the U.S.’s. Get your hands out of our pockets Shlomo.
Hey Jesus, did you know you’re named after a “Shlomo”?
North Korea just need little more time to complete its nuclear arsenal. It is too stupid to believe that they will give up.
yeah make a deal with the psycho tyrant kim , keep him in power while he obliterate his people. what kind of a ballshit deal is this ? oh yeah the usa deal, this is what the states been doing , fukcing everyone up
We should nuke iran and its proxies secure syria then eradicate KJY
Wow, you have quite a laundry list there. Anybody else you want to add?
fckng jewish superman nonsense. really he’s this weedy little guy holed up in the bank with aload of child and women human shield hostages and threatening to kill everyone.
RatSputum, Go back to raping goats.
Indeed just buying time.
Sorry, it’s the US who will back down after all this – no matter how jewish liars try to spin the news. N. Korea will talk from the position of strength.
The issue of illegal Israeli nuclear weapons will be discussed in future – and soon enough, BELIEVE ME!
Iran has no nuclear weapons program – no matter hard how jewish liars try to prove that black is white.
Does Israel have nukes? I hope so. That means that if Israel suffers a nuke attack, Israel can retaliate and totally DESTROY Tehran, Qom, Masshad, Isfahan and their “mahdi”.
Simple truth is, that “simpletruths” is a defective, low-life Jew-baiter – and those creatures, blinded and deafened by hatred, are truly incurable…
Well he is simple. But eouldnt kniw the truth if it bit his goats, I mean wifes ,ass.
I knew it! Some anti-Semite would somehow bring in “The Jews” as behind a possible meeting between Donald Trump and NK leader. It is really funny the length of anti-Jew paranoia and demented thinking of these people. How can anyone take them seriously? If you do, you are a fool, only giving these irrational Jew haters a level of credibility. Best to ignore them and their dark fantasies.
a pity hitler did not finish the u k monsters
NKorea will buy time and prestige and credit and sell what? Their nuclear program will end? Impossible! Their rockets will be destroy? Impossible! It would end up like iran nuclear deal for them. The end of the day they will have the nukes and the rockets
who is lone ?
Iran has a nuclear agreement with USA / EU
Rubbish usual crap from Debka..DPRK is stalling for time,The same old trap they used on every other US administration
wanker, President Trump is NOT like every other US administration.
President Trump will ridicule Kim Junk Funk and cause Kimchi to lose face. Those NK’s have an Honor/Shame culture. Goof on the NK piglet and he falls.
The only difference being they never mentioned denuclearization.
Kim and Trump should each bring their barbers to the summit to exchange ideas. Trump comes up short on top, but has enough on the sides to accomplish a pretty complex combover; while Kim is pretty lush on top, but the tree line is pretty stark on the sides. I mean, when they get done saving the world from a brush with nuclear armageddon, and all that. Maybe Trump can also get Kim to stop assisting Iran in their aggressive proclivities.
Maybe we are engaging in wishful thinking: Iran discussed its nuclear program, and Obama decided it was in fact a good thing and made sure sanctions were dropped and that they’d have a clear path to obliterate the world.
The fat mommy in North Korea figures he can twist Trump to give him the fast- track to nuclear AND enjoy all the cash from sanctions being lifted.
Iran will continue to purchase nuclear bombs from N. Korea in parts and then have N. Koreans and Russians unpack and assemble them in Iran. This will go on with ir without deals.
The Axis of Evil cannot be trusted.
Looks to me that NK may have lured the US into another internationally visible public “honey trap.” Recall the game Iran played in its “bait and switch+ seven-year teaser for Obama? this, to my mind, appears a repeat. And the outlook for the out-classed US negotiators could spell the same disastrous consequences the US now faces in the Middle East!
David, You sound as dumb as Obama or Maxine Mumbly Waters You really think that Trump is a dumb as Obama? Trump is a businessman, not a fascist fat dictator like Kim Junk Ugly.
President Trump will TOWER over that NK midget, physically and strategy wise.
Without going into comparative IQ’s, Marg, I certainly hope you are correct. The consequences of you being wrong will be a disaster for the US.
A disaster for the US will be a fatal disaster for Fascist Iran and NorKs.
Iran has already discussed their nuclear weapons program in 2015 and the west agreed. Israel is the ONLY country in the world with a nuclear weapons program that has not been discussed or agreed upon by world leaders. That’s a fact!
Bruce, Let’s agree that Fascist Iran should be nuked. Fission or Fusion? Who cares.
And all the aya-tool-ah pigs need to spend 1 year hanging by their necks from the same construction cranes they hang your fellow gays from.
You are a lame one track record.
Game over Anglo Zionists, the region is no longer your little safe space.
Time to start accepting reality.
IslamoFascist Iran is heading towards its Worst Nakba in History. Even MOOOhammed / Mahdi in HELL will feel it.
The Yankee pigs are also squatters. They squat at Tanf and Rojava in Syria, but will be kicked out in what will bet yet another strategic defeat.
No wonder why the Zionists look up the Yankees, both squatters live by leeching off others.
In what warped reality is the UK in league with Israel? You Israel haters are a truly deranged group.
Nobody really cares about Israel’s nukes. They’ve had them for 50 years and never threatened to use them let alone hardly admit they have them. Iran on the other hand is run by people filled with hatred for Jews (following quran dictates), that almost daily threatens to wipe Israel off the map. Waste of time anyway:- iran will provoke Israel again shortly and they’ll get what they’ve been asking for.
strange that you do not mention pakistan,probably because a pakistanese is fucking you mother in her ass:
last Updated: April, 2016
In the mid-1970s Pakistan embarked upon the uranium enrichment route to acquire a nuclear weapons capability. Pakistan conducted nuclear tests in May 1998, shortly after India’s nuclear tests, declaring itself a nuclear weapon state. Pakistan currently possesses a growing nuclear arsenal, and remains outside both the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).
figure out that israel does not want to be slaughtered like the yezidis,kurds,assyriacs;copts,……by the adepts of the religion of peace
That’s because the only democracy in the Middle East that want to live in peace with everybody that’s why nobody is questioning the nuclear capability they’ve never tried to use it against anybody except for improper see if they will against Damascus if you read Ezekiel 38 and 39 in Psalm 83 in Isaiah 17 check it out
What nuclear program? where is your proof.
People are confused by Masters of Illusion: they all say one thing but do just the opposite. For example Trump said many things, but did just the opposite. yesterday, for example, he said he is against killing last animals into complete Extinction, but he authorized killing of all elephants for their nails and hair and teeth (also called “tusks”). That is just yesterday’s example. There are too many to list here. Lesson for us: do not give much weight to what they SAY. Watch what they DO. The rule “Say one thing and do just the opposite” is the only rule of the Communists like Russia, Putler, North Korea. Haven’t we learned for the last 100 years already about this main rule of Communism? And now Trump adopted that rule, too. No wonder he likes Putler so much: they think alike.
A “lonely” Iran would become even more of a liability to the civilized world – so Debka may be rejoicing prematurely…The rag-heads in Teheran put even the most stubborn donkey in kindergarten.
Bahahaha you squatters are still paranoid about Iran
What’s even better is you lost regime change in Syria
mossadissu:soon our beloved breivig will come back and you will take a good shower in auschwitz
What ya gonna Hajj to when it and Tehran, Qom get turned into radioactive dust
I am squatting on your Sharmouta Mother’s face right now and she is THRILLED
America cannot watch the Trojan Horse flood of containers. Free Trade…
When Carter relenquished control of Panama, he created an existential vulnerability.
WMD component shipping linking Iran and PDRK has already been intercepted. America and Israel must assure Faraday Cage protection on solid state controls for strategic utilities and essential transport. Strategically and Biblically, Israel and America are facing attack meant to neutralize. Second and third strike capability for America requires rebuild of secondfary rail lines to assure hedge against famine. See Clarke; Koppel; and Forschen on the EMP/Cyberwar threat. Forschen’s book ONE SECOND AFTER is definitive narrative of long road back from Nuclear Detonation in Troposphere. PDRK is now very capable of this.
There are are more than 3 Bn Muslims worldwide and only a handful of Jews who will soon be again outnumbered in Israel. Why dont all Muslims unite as commanded by Allah and at one go invade and settle Israel for once and for all. As ordained all the enemies of Allah have been gathered in one place and the Muslims have the power hence it is the right time to exercise our right
I don’t know if you are a troll, but those 3 Bn Muslims might want to think long and hard before they try to invade Israel.
Soo-ee-man, There are more rat in the world than Mooose-Limbs and the rats aren’t going to take over the world either.
Behave or MeKKKa gets it. Then you’ll have to Hajj to HELL.
Mudslimes are too busy sucking off their Camels pricks to FUCK with the Jews
what utter nonsense. Iran discussed and satisfied the world over its program. Iran has fulfilled its obligations. the idolatrous jewish terror state is the holdout. If you nuke Iran, you will lose it all.
Satans Fascist Iran is heading for oblivion. The only way to avoid it is for the Persian people to rise up and arrest and execute the ayatollahs of Satan.
The fat Kimchi needs to be deprived like the FAGATOLLAH of his favorite ANIMALS prick juice. Destroy all Korean horses with large schlongs and the bloated Kimchi will surrender everything. I say Poison all the well hung Camels and watch the FAGATOLLAH sue for peace.
I’m surprised Debka is writing so naively. North Korea will not de-nuclearize, and everyone knows it. They are just following the classic writings of Mao: “negotiate peace while preparing for war” (from his little red book). And if Obama were president, he would give them taxpayers cash, too, as a gift, like he gave iran.
What a bunch of morons. The Iranians had their own religion (Zoroastrianism). Then they adopt the barbaric religion of the barbaric Arabs who invade and enslave them. Not being content with their weakness, defeat and stupidity, the Iranians turn around and become the co-champions (along with the Saudi Arab savages) of the WORST self-serving religion ever devised. Islam is evil and the Iranians are morons.
Let the Iranians build planes that cannot even fly and bombs that can’t explode whilst oppressing their own women instead of loving them.
Iranians, what a waste of time.
Hey, nothing’s done yet. The fact that Kim will meet Trump does not mean at all that he will give up his nukes. Most probably, The fat kid will flatter the Dotard’s ego just as Xi Jinping did and Orange man will come back saying it was “the best, ever, bigly, most successful meeting”, without having achieved anything except give Rocket Man international stature and recognition.
Lil Kim is a brat. Trump should put him on his knee and spank him – put the video on Youtube – and the NorK will go nuts and overthrow FatBoy Lil Kim. Hang Lil Kim like Mooose-a-lini
Between the communist, whom one cannot trust and the immature religious nuts who spout obscenity at each other and talk about nuking, it will be a statistical miracle if this planet survives our common religious insanity, much into the future. We should all be ashamed.
I always looked at Jewish people as among the most mature and serious people especially dealing with the matters discussed here. Those who write the trashy and immature comments on this site do an injustice to the many.
Kim only wants VIP at NBA
Meeting will never happen. Why? As a pre condition Trump will insist on N. Korea’s agreement to de-nuclearization, which they wont do. Besides, where would this meeting take place? Geneva? LRM (Little Rocket Man) would never leave the safety of the Korean Peninsula because the moment he did there would be a coup and Trump would never go to NK.
Oh and Debka do you really think the Iranians give a crap about being the only nuclear holdout? They’ve held out on just about everything else, civil rights, civil justice, women’s rights, gay rights, non-muslim rights, and just about every other form of social justice or progressive reform there is. What’s a little warfare to such inbred cattle. Hell, they are just going to light one off anyway because the sooner the world’s population is brought down to about 5,000 then the hidden Imam can spring out of his well and then half of the 5,000 muslim survivors can start hating (and killing) the other half because they can’t agree on the what color burka to wear. And the whole damn thing would just start all over again.
Actually, when and if Kim, the overt leader of NK, meets and speaks with Trump, the Ayatollah may be represented at the meeting, as well. I say that, because Iran and NK have collaborated on their nuclear weapon and missile programs for more than a decade. When Obama made his “deal” with Iran, he didn’t know what to do about the collaboration with NK, and so, he simply pretended that it didn’t exist. As a result, the collaboration was able to continue on with its development and testing of nuclear weaponry, even as Iran was promising to curtail its refining of weapons-grade uranium. It remains to be seen, if talking to only one member of the collaboration can be productive.
