Iran launches annual war games ahead of nuclear talks

The Iranian military has launched its annual war games in the Gulf of Oman. According to a report on state television on Sunday, the exercise began a month before the upcoming nuclear talks with the West. The report said that the Navy and Air Force, as well as ground forces, participated in the exercise in an area of ​​more than 1 million square kilometers east of the Strait of Hormuz. The exercise comes amid growing tensions between Iran and the United States after former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the United States from Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers in 2015.

“These war games are aimed at improving preparedness to deal with foreign threats and any possible attack,” state television said. U.S. officials said last week that Iran had seized a Vietnamese-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman and was still holding it in its port. But Iran has claimed that elite Revolutionary Guards commandos seized a US tanker carrying Iranian oil in the Gulf of Oman and freed the ship.  The United States has argued that dramatic footage was broadcast on Iranian state television and did not elaborate. After the United States pulled out of the deal in 2018 and imposed sanctions on Iran, the Islamic Republic has gradually but publicly lifted the agreement on its nuclear development, saying it has reached 210 kilograms (463 pounds) of its 20 percent enriched uranium. Under the landmark nuclear deal, Iran was barred from enriching uranium above 3,675. More than 90 percent enriched uranium can be used for nuclear weapons. However, Tehran has claimed that its nuclear program is peaceful. After months of delays, the European Union, Iran and the United States last week indirectly said they would resume talks in Vienna on November 29 to renew the agreement. Iran launches annual war.
