In a long conversation with the media, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh discussed whether Iran would renegotiate the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran deal, of 2015.
Iran slammed the US for violating the deal and UN Resolution 2231, which enshrines it. America must be held accountable to that, regardless of a new administration coming to power, Tehran said.
The US left the Iran deal in 2018, and Tehran has broken some of its obligations regarding stockpiling enriched nuclear material.
The JCPOA cannot be reopened, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said. Asked about US President-elect Joe Biden and his statements on the campaign trail, Khatibzadeh said Iran does not pay attention to debates, campaigns and think tanks, but rather to what had happened and the protocols of the Iran deal and UN Resolution 2231.
Anything to the contrary about reopening the Iran deal is not something Tehran will consider, he said, adding: “These words are also a sign of simplistic thinking that if one thinks, one can talk about [the deal] and open what has been signed, understood and sealed.”
“Iran has repeatedly stated that [the deal] is something of the past and cannot be reopened by anyone,” Khatibzadeh said. “The United States has violated UNSCR 2231 and has inflicted heavy losses on Iran, [which is] holding the United States responsible for its withdrawal, and Iran is in a position to demand that the United States be held accountable for its violation of international law against the Iranian people.”
Iran says the US has destroyed international norms, and the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign has failed. It says the administration violated or walked away from dozens of international treaties and was very outspoken, “setting examples for the history of international relations of this strange American government that will be analyzed for years in academia.”
“What happened in the United States has a big message for our region, which is that gambling on and buying security from those who think only of blood, weapons and more blood has no effect other than putting your eggs in a basket that is unreliable,” Khatibzadeh said.
This description was meant to allude to countries in the Gulf and their alliance with the US. The region must now turn to Iran for security, a kind of Tehran hegemony, and not rely on Washington, according to the Iranian regime.
“There are some limited neighboring countries that are still thinking about buying security and lobbying [in Washington],” Khatibzadeh said. “Our region is in crisis and has suffered many wounds and shortsighted rulers. The neighboring countries that Iran has reached out to and the neighbors that sought peace in Washington and the occupied territories should return.”
This means that those who worked with Trump on the “Deal of the Century” should return to talks with Iran now.
“The Trump administration has gone in a very wrong direction over the past few years, and the maximum pressure has reached the maximum failure,” he said.
Asked whether Iran had been contacted before or after Biden’s victory, Khatibzadeh told Fars: “No… The government has not come to power yet, and the US government should come to power in January, and then we will make our decisions based on the new conditions and environment.”
He seemed to mock “speculation and media and think tanks.”
Iran is now opening an investigation into the US killing of IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in January. It appears to indicate that some of its own partners or forces were somehow complicit in leaking information. “They must answer to justice and be accountable for the assassination,” the Foreign Ministry said.
Asked about the war between Iran and Israel, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said: “Israeli officials are very war-loving and want to do it with the blood of American soldiers.”
Iran claims that Israel pushes “Iranophobia.”
Ultimately, Khatibzadeh circled back to accuse the US of breaking UN Resolution 2231 and damaging Iran.
The US needs to take “legal responsibility,” he said, “and any government that wants to change course must pay attention to the facts… We in the UN Security Council have various obligations, the most important of which has been the lifting of sanctions, and the United States directly prevented this... after the extraterritorial sanctions, the European parties were unable to fulfill their obligations.”
Iran is paying attention to foreign actions.
“The path of Iran’s national interests is a path that we are taking seriously, and all our energy is spent on preserving the national interests and the interests of the people,” Khatibzadeh said. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has one of its inherent duties to expand Iran’s relations with other countries. Yesterday’s government directive emphasized this. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Iranian embassies abroad have a facilitating role, and we are seriously pursuing this role.”
“Maximum US pressure has not failed on its own, and the failure of this policy is the achievement of the youth, the private sector and anonymous Iranians around the world who helped to defeat this policy,” he said. “Our economy is becoming a people’s economy.”
This “popular economy” cannot be sanctioned, Iran says.

THE AKAN Copied from the book, Reality as Myth by Onyeji Nnaji . The influence of the Akan on their content nations lies on their population and commonwealth of their brother nations. The Akan are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Their population is scattered across West Africa and beyond. Among this huge population of the Akan, the Ghanaians are more popular, perhaps because of the political influence of the Ashanti Empire in the area. Not much is heard or known about other Akan settlements like the Akwamu, the Akyem , the Akuapem, the Denkyira, the Abron, the Aowin, the Ahanta, the Anyi, the Baoule, the Chokosi, the Fante, the Kwahu, the Sefwi, the Ahafo, the Assin, the Evalue, the Wassa the Adjukru, the Akye, the Alladian, the Attie,the M'Bato, the Abidji, the Avikam,the Avatime the Ebrie,
Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers that founded many of the nations of antiquity mentioned earlier. Discussing them in beat will pose a little challenge since

This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
T he name Nkalaha is a coinage which stands for a people occupying a geographical land and regional setting in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is a coinage which attempts to explain the direction of movement and adventure of the men who founded the community in the 15th century AD. According to oral sources and some documentation about this community, some of these men were believed to have traveled from Ida, old Benue state of Nigeria to inhabit the land. These men had traveled on different days to locate the place. Onojah who originally founded the land was said to have been in a deep search for a place of safety as he was besieged by a fate that appeared to make him somewhat incompatible with his own people. Nkalaha is one of the communities that make up Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Nkalaha occupied the northern part of Ishielu Local Government Area. She is located through the zip 135.031.000. The community sits on 923.768km 2 . She shares boundaries
The Mystery of Number, “Five” in the Igbo Cosmology. From: Aspects of the Ancient African Metaphysics; Chapter: Seven; Topic: Igbo Geometries and the Metaphysics of Numbers. Author: Onyeji Nnaji. I n the Igbo cosmology, the word Isee is a definite symbolic word as revealed through the Igbo language and culture. A human being has five fingers, five toes. The hands and feet are fundamentals to the survival in life as they are necessary in ensuring that man moves to places where he gets food and grapples on the food to sustain his life. To this view, the rhetoric that binds vocatives in the form of incantation (anchoring on the heart-lock: four ) and the concomitant reprisal in the manner of affirmation that holds the human life bind to his original spiritual person, therefore defining existence and essences are unified by the corresponding echo: Isee!!!!! Therefore it stands that anytime a prayer is said in the Igbo land, the attendants who would want the fulfillment of the
INTRODUCTION One thing that made Udi remarkable is the indubitable legacy adopted in commemoration of the legendry fighter, Uto at Nsude. It was one of the greatest contributions of the descendants of Agbaja to the survival of Nsukka civilization of memory. Uto held from Oshie. Uto dies of small pox after a mercenary battle he was hired to fight in the ancient Benin. His body was buried in the evil forest as the tradition demanded. Although he lived no longer, the stepped pyramids above were adopted to commemorate the lasting peace he brought to the entire Oshie and Udi nation of people. Another remarkable thing about Udi is the fertility of the land. This has contributed widely in sustaining the inhabitants and provided a name for the inhabitants in the manner of Abakaliki, Umudike, Ogbaru, Igboariam, Ohaji, Uzouwani, etc., especially in Amofia-Agu, Affa. Udi is a land of great rivers and springs: Adaada, Ajali, Oji, Aria, Nvenu, Ngene Evu, Iyi Ububo, etc. as was the situ
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peopling of Ancient Nsukka One of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people call
by Onyeji Nnaji Eha-Amufu road newly constructed by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state in 2019 A part from the strategic location of the Federal College of Education, one central reason remarkable about Eha-Amufu is her central position and her boundary situation. Eha-Amufu stands at the centre of many communities; as a result she has served as the gateway to different communities. She is bounded to Nkalaha, Agala, Ikem, Umuero and other communities, including Obeagu (pronounced Ubegu). Aside from that, Eha-Amufu embodies the route that traces the way to the northern part of Nigeria for travellers travelling from Ebonyi axis. Eha-Amufu also forms the remarkable boundary community between Enugu State and Ebonyi State. This situation makes Eha-Amufu very strategic in the discussion of the road and rivers across Ebonyi and Enugu. In the era when transportation on rail was the order of the day, the most popular then ‘Express Train and la
