  • Iran, world powers meet to salvage nuclear deal

It is one of the agnostic decisions made by Donald Trump during his Presidency.

Referring to U.S. recent withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal, Shamkhani said, "There is no logical reason to negotiate with a country that does not abide by its commitments". With the re-imposition of such sanctions, Iran will no longer have any incentive to stick to its part of the nuclear deal.

For instance, 90 per cent of Uranium is required to create nuclear weapons so under the agreement, only 5 percent of Uranium enrichment is used for the goal of power plant in Iran and 20 percent used for medical research purposes in the country. IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano has been reiterating that Iran's nuclear activities are under the strictest control and is subject to the strictest inspections. The blandishment of the report also provides, where is the process of uranium enrichment is taking place in the country and how much of it is being used and for what goal. "The JCPOA defined the problem with Iran as being only the nuclear issue". The bemoaning of the JCPOA agreement was that it had various nuclear provisions, which had its expiration dates. The deal lets Iran enrich but under tight restrictions.

Poland's Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said Warsaw - a staunch ally of Washington - had not decided yet whether to back the ban, potentially complicating a decision that needs unanimous backing from the EU's 28 members.

After Trump's rejection of the Iran deal, North Korea now concedes that it can not cajole a flawed agreement with the current US president, who is mercurial rather than scripted in his reactions.

There is much at stake and not just for Iran. In exchange, Tehran was granted widespread relief from global trade, oil and banking sanctions. Instead of acting as if Iran is the strong power and the United States is too weak to defend its interests, Pompeo reminded Tehran that the reverse is true.

Germany, Britain and France as well as the European Union have announced that they would remain in the agreement, insisting that the JCPOA is functioning properly.

Many in the field remain impressed that the 2015 agreement secured monitoring of the entire supply chain that once fueled Iran's nuclear program, from the mines and mills that produce its raw materials to its storage facilities, to the research centers and the enrichment sites themselves.

The U.S. can also deter Iran and North Korea in a variety of other ways. Speaking at the conservative Heritage Foundation, the former Central Intelligence Agency director unveiled the administration's nuclear nonproliferation strategy against Iran, which strives to exert constant pressure on Tehran so as to goad it into a new nuclear deal without resorting to armed force.

China, Russia and several European nations have been trying to salvage the deal. As in the case when Trump dispersed America from Paris Accord and gave free space to China and Russian Federation to create its behemoth hegemony by leading global concern.

Suddenly, the status of Iran's nuclear program can not only be gauged and measured by nuclear scientists assessing yellowcake sourcing and centrifuge efficiency. Iran, a majority-Shiite country, must also stop funding rebels in Yemen and withdraw its forces from Syria.

In pith and marrow, it is evident that the Iran's nuclear agreement is paramount for the region and the world at large. It's that none of Iran's gains in the last five years had to happen. It can potentially create nuclear weapon to rampant the risk of war in the upcoming time.

That makes Pompeo's task more hard than the one presented to Kerry before he shirked the struggle in the course of a shift to appeasement of Tehran.
