The Iran Crisis: How the Nuclear Deal Started to Unravel, and What’s Next
Recent announcements by the Iranian regime imply that the Iran nuclear deal framework may be beyond saving, four years after the agreement between China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, the European Union (EU) and Iran was announced, and one year after the US abandoned the agreement.
To be sure, the deal may not be completely dead yet, but Iran has already violated two provisions by exceeding both the amount of enriched uranium it is allowed to store and the 3.67% enrichment threshold. In addition, the country has warned that the remaining signatories have 60 days to mitigate US sanctions on Iran before it will violate the accord once again.
