TEHRAN(Basirat): The United States is likely to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal, also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), within a month.
"Come January, the president may be extremely frustrated that neither
Congress nor the Europeans have responded to his request for ways to fix
the deal,” American newspaper Washington Times quoted Mark Dubowitz, an
analyst on Iran sanctions and CEO of the Foundation for Defense of
Democracies, as saying in an interview.
'It’s entirely possible at that time that the president will walk away from the deal,' he added.
October 13, Trump announced that his administration would not certify
Iran's commitment to the deal. The decision came after several reports
by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) approving that Iran has
been acting fully in accordance with the JCPOA.
This is while
Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukiya Amano
earlier said 'Iran is now subject to the world's most robust nuclear
verification regime, and the IAEA has so far had access to all the
locations it needed to visit in the country. IAEA inspectors will
continue to carry out their work in an impartial and factual manner.”
said after taking office in late 2009 he decided to clearly spell out
the IAEA’s assessment of the situation and the facts that it had
established through many years of verification efforts in Iran, as well
as the concerns it had.
After years of little headway, he said
there was movement in the right direction in 2013 after the election of
President Hassan Rouhani in Iran, eventually leading to the IAEA and
Iran signing a Road-map in July 2015 to clarify the possible military
dimensions to Iran’s nuclear program and a separate agreement between
Iran and the six countries known as Group 5+1, and the European Union,
on the JCPOA.
