Of course, President Joe Biden’s job is not an easy one. His predecessor, Donald Trump suggested, and succeeded, that he leave an amalgamated path towards where he must highlight his efforts to reverse the chaotic situation, both nationally and internationally.
Whether or not the United States will return to the nuclear agreement with Iran is one of those fronts, so far, with more speculation than the unconditional return decisions to the country. The former ruler unilaterally abandoned her, deafening his ears to the international demand for what was considered one of the most important victories in world diplomacy.
Biden promised, during his election campaign, that on his first 100 days in the White House, he would return to the nuclear agreement, signed in 2015 between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the P5 + 1 group (which at the time consisted of the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Russia and China in addition to Germany), which Trump threw at sea, in May 2018, to reimpose sanctions on Iran.
There was no reason for such an absurd act, as the United Nations and the international community knew and shared the standards that Tehran complied with for each section of the agreed document. The International Atomic Energy Agency, which is responsible for monitoring the agreement, has also repeatedly stated that Iran respects what was agreed upon.
After the United States withdrew, the other European governments that signed the agreement condemned this decision, but did not take practical measures that, in the opinion of the Iranian authorities, would contribute to reducing the effects of the sanctions imposed by Washington again. This is how Joe Biden arrived at the White House, and at the international level he may be one of the most important issues that he must study on his agenda.
However, despite his announcement that he would return to the agreement with Iran, the new Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, made clear to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that “the Biden administration is ready to return to the nuclear agreement, if Tehran abides by its agreement. Obligations.” Logically, this approach caused negative reactions in the Persian nation, because if it was the United States that abandoned it, then the new government of that country should be the one that would return to it, without the right to demand new conditions.
Faced with the possibility of delaying a return to the good path on which peace is moving on the Iranian nuclear file, the foreign ministers of Russia, China and Europe, gathered by video link, affirmed their commitment to “preserving the agreement without preconditions or changes. And without the need to amend what was signed in 2015.” .
The permanent obstacle is the government of Israel. Not surprisingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is jumping like a bunny at the prospect of the United States returning to the nuclear agreement with Iran, and is planning to send Mossad Director of Intelligence (Mossad) Yossi Cohen to Washington to present Biden with his demands before a possible understanding with the Persian nation.
For its part, the Chinese Foreign Ministry warned that the urgent necessity at the present time is for all parties to accelerate the implementation of consensus, push for the unconditional return of the United States as soon as possible, and resume the lifting of sanctions.
I think that there should be no other step on the part of the new US administration, other than returning to the nuclear agreement with Iran, abandoning the policy of harsh and irresponsible sanctions against any country, and implementing the peace policy, which is absolutely necessary. Urgent to the world.
