  The road to Joe Biden's foreign policy runs through Bob Menendez The powerful chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee isn't going to let Biden repeat Obama's mistakes.The chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has been in this role before, and didn’t much like the way the Obama administration conducted international affairs as if it were the sole discretion of the White House. As a result, he often made things more difficult for former President Barack Obama, especially in areas that required congressional approval.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States repeated on Thursday that it ruled out taking unilateral measures for the benefit of Iran in order to incite that here to take part in discussions on the return of the two countries within the framework of the 2015 agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.

  It's time for Biden to channel Trump, Reagan and meet Iran's Rouhani A Biden-Rouhani meeting needs to happen fast – very fast – if the White House has any interest in charting a bold new course towards peace in the Middle East. For one, a meeting between the two leaders would undermine Iran's conservatives. Like congressional Republicans, Iran's hardliners oppose diplomatic engagement with the other side.Moreover, should Iran's elderly supreme leader become seriously ill in the coming year, a series of Biden-Rouhani engagements might allow the United States to exert subtle influence on the complex process of picking his successor.

"If the Iranians have the impression that, in the absence of any gesture on their part to respect all the terms (of the 2015 agreement) again, we will grant favors or unilateral gestures, c 'is a bad impression, "added Ned Price.

Washington could consider, once possible discussions, simultaneous measures of the two countries to return within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA, or JCPoA in English), he continued.

Reuters learned earlier this month from European sources that Iran had recently given encouraging signs about a possible opening of informal talks with world powers and the United States over its nuclear program.
