The news and developments of these days indicate the tightening of the isolation ring of the Mullahs regime in the international arena.

While the regime was hoping to Europe for escape the fate of US deadline on nuclear deal, Europe was on the path to aligning America’s policy with a voluntary response to Donald Trump’s call for coordination in six areas to force the regime moves to change.

In this case, state media from both gangs of regime in Iran almost every day write about talks between US and EU about Iran Deal and expanding to other deals in relation of missile projects and Iran meddling in the region.

Meanwhile on March 29, France’s Radio quoted by the Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Ludrian, accused Iran of supplying weapons to Yemen’s Houthi militia. This position took place following the firing of seven Houthi rockets to Saudi Arabia, and displayed pieces of these missiles by Saudi officials.

Well, such news is still on the rise. The first question to start the discussion is what do we think about these news and events, and what are the reasons for this?

As reported in the introduction to the article, these reports indicate a tightening of the isolation ring of the regime. The change and developments in the US foreign policy team, which is clearly indicative of a sharpening of US policy toward Iran, shows the same. Many diplomatic trips and diplomatic visits are taking place in these days. Including the visit of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia to the United States, which, according to political observers, is the main theme of his apparent confrontation with the Mullahs regime and threats to the security of the region by the regime.

The news, which is, of course, only part of the mass of developments available, continues to be added. On the contrary, the regime has begun a series of measures in its foreign relations. Rouhani‘s visit to Central Asia and efforts to strengthen economic relations with the northern neighbors, the visit of Kamal Kharrazi to Pakistan, the Zarif visit to the Balkans and the trip of the Foreign Minister of Oman to Iran are another aspect of this boiling space of foreign policy.

There are other developments that are bad for the regime, like North Korea’s recent stance, which seems to want a deal with the United States and the West, which means that the United States and the international community are concentrating more on the regime.

It is easy to see that as soon as we reach the end of the deadline of the United States (May 12th), these developments are accelerating, and the isolation ring gets tighter over the regime. The Mullahs regime has counted Europe on the issue of nuclear deal against the US government, but is clearly EU is beside of US, and it is itself setting up and adopting new sanctions against the regime, independent of the United States. The goal is to push the regime to stop its missile and terrorist interference in the region and withdraw its forces from Syria and …. By that time, the pressure on the regime will increase, the sanctions will increase, and everyone in this direction will tell the regime that there is no other way than to drink poisonous cups for a missile and a regional project and of course, the Human Rights poisonous cup will also be coming after that.

The regime is also trying with all its power to refrain from drinking these poisonous cups. Because, according to Khamenei’s own words, this process is endless and ultimately leads to the negation of the regime of Velayat-e faqih. So we see that missile strikes continue to lead Saudi Arabia, which, of course, has different interpretations; an interpretation is that these gestures of demonstrative power indicate the regime’s decision to stand against the pressures of international community, and another interpretation of this is smoke and camouflage for a retreat. Because at the same time, we see a Zarif and Rouhani plea for negotiating with Saudi Arabia.

However, there are two more ways ahead of the regime, and the regime has no other option. Either surrender and missile, regional interference, or stand up to the international community and accept its deadly consequences.

Which is difficult to say which one is the most dangerous and deadly for the regime. It is important that the other regime, such as the nuclear deal, cannot make decisions and choices, and should be assigned in the coming days.
