DA chief investigator: Biden’s plan to revert to Iran’s deal will not be easy

UN chief investigator nukes says President Joe Biden’s plan to restore nuclear agreement with Iran is not an easy task because Iran has gone too far as- is in breach of the original agreement.

“I can’t imagine they’re just going to say,‘ We’re back to square one ’because square one is no longer there,” said Rafael Grossi, who directs International Atomic Energy Agency, in an interview conducted by Reuters on Thursday. “It is clear that there needs to be a protocol or agreement or an understanding or supporting document that clearly sets out what we will do. “
Grossi said a new agreement could address Iran’s fraudulent activity. On Friday the Associated Press reported that the country has begun new construction work at an underground nuclear facility.

“There is more (nuclear) material, there is more activity, there are more centrifuges, and more are being named,” said Grossi. “So what happens to all this?” a question for them at the political level to decide. “

Biden has said he would try to renegotiate the current contract and renegotiate a new one.

“We are going to enter into ongoing talks and agreements to tighten and expand Iran’s nuclear barriers, as well as address the missile program,” he told Thomas Friedman earlier this month. .

The agreement, negotiated with the U.S. and other powers such as Russia and China but abandoned by President Trump in 2018, traded sanctions relief for Iran’s agreement to roll out its nuclear program back. Western intelligence agencies say Iran was targeting an arms program ahead of the agreement. Iran maintains that its program has always been for peaceful purposes.

Ioran began to defy some terms of the treaty, especially in areas of enrichment, after Trump lifted and lifted sanctions, pursuing a strategy of “maximum pressure” to force him to Iran completely completed its nuclear development, and bucking in other areas, including its program missiles and its daring in the area.

Iran is now enriching and accumulating uranium at levels far beyond the parameters of the treaty, but nowhere near the levels it was at before the 2015 treaty. U.S. partners in a treaty 2015 still adheres to its terms.
