Don961: Despair in Iranians: We want a normal life
- 6 Hours Ago
DUBAI - Iran's decision to continue defying the United States to raise uranium enrichment beyond the limit set by the nuclear deal in 2015 has deepened the Iranians' fear that their country would remain in a protracted crisis.
Iran's pessimism has been further exacerbated by Tehran's announcement that it has upgraded uranium enrichment to a level higher than that allowed under the agreement, which means crossing red lines that even put European "allies" at the door of withdrawal.
"Yes, life is difficult because of the sanctions," said a 43-year-old housewife named Fairuzah in Babelsar. I think the price of this nuclear program is high for the Iranian people. "
The confrontation took on a military dimension as Washington accused Tehran of attacking oil tankers and Iran dropped a US aircraft, which was the motive behind Trump's unfinished strikes. Under the nuclear deal with world powers, sanctions that have been in place for years have been lifted to allow Iran to conclude global trade deals in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program. But did not reap any benefits until Trump decided to withdraw from the agreement.
Trump's goal of imposing "maximum pressure" on Iran is to push for tougher restrictions on its nuclear activities, abandon its missile program and reduce its support for militant factions in Middle East conflicts.
Commodity prices have risen sharply in Iran and the number of job seekers among young Iranians is increasing. In April, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted that Iran's economy would shrink for the second consecutive year and inflation could reach 40 percent.
"Look at Syria, Iraq and Yemen, these countries have been suffering for years and I am not a supporter of the Iranian regime, but sanctions harm people, not their leaders," she said. Prices of bread, cooking oil and other commodities have seen significant increases.
The devaluation of the Iranian riyal has forced more than 60 percent of some small factories to close because of the scarcity of raw materials and hard currency.
"Living is very expensive," said Ghorban Ali Husseini, a teacher at Shiraz Elementary School. Prices are rising almost every day. My salary is about $ 200 and I have two children. " "I work in three jobs and yet I find it difficult to meet the needs of my family. America must stop hurting Iranian people like me by imposing sanctions on our country. "
Iranian authorities say 15 percent of the workforce is unemployed. Salaries are low in many official jobs, which means that the actual figure for those who do not have an appropriate job is likely to be much higher.
"I want to live a normal life," said Sorush, who blames the confrontation policies of Iranian leaders. I have a university degree but I am unemployed and desperate and sad. Now with these tensions, I have become less optimistic and scared. "
Many Iranians say they are tired of the conflict caused by the leadership in both countries. "I appeal to you, political leaders in America and in Iran, to allow us to live in peace," says Nira Seddat, 56, a retired school in Bushehr.
