NETANYAHU AIMS TO DISCUSS “VARIOUS WAYS” TO UNDO IRAN DEAL WITH TRUMP

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told CBS he hopes to discuss with the US President Trump five different ways, which have not been publicly declared yet, to undo theJoint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known also as Iran nuclear deal, after the president-elect moves into the White House next month.

The international agreement was signed in Vienna on 14 July 2015 between Iran and the P5+1, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - China, France, Russia, the UK, the US plus Germany - and the EU, and its main points are: the reduction of the Iran’s uranium enrichment capacity and of the stockpile of LEU, the limiting on the R&D work Iran can do on centrifuges, the removal of the Arak reactor, the IAEA’s access to all Iranian nuclear sites for inspections and its investigations in Iran past activities, and the suspension of the financial sanctions and the oil embargo against Iran.      

Netanyahu has criticized and rejected the agreement because it provides for the monitoring of Iran’s nuclear development in return for a loosening of sanctions related to the program; the deal does not prevent Iran from acquiring and building nuclear weapons within the next decade but paves its path to the bomb, and he has added that President Trump has the right attitude to support the Jewish state and people in this fight.

Internationally, the support for the deal is strong. US Democrats are urging Trump not to renege on the deal, while the major EU’s leaders keep praising the agreement as useful to neutralize Iran’s aggressive actions in the Middle East. Lastly, Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani has stated he will not let anyone dismantle the deal.
