Powerful voices all across the globe are trying to pressurize President Trump to support the Iran deal. However Trump wants to reconsider the deal and may be scuffle it altogether. He says that he will try to improve the deal or reject it completely.
The opinion of Mark Dubowitz on the Iran deal
According to this deal the President will have to certify every 90 days and Iran is properly implementing the deal. He also needs to certify that Iran has not made any major advancement with its nuclear weapons. This deal is vital because it lets everyone know as to whether America is protected against any nuclear attacks by Iran. It is also an effort made by Iran to stop all its illicit activities.
He says that if the President continues certifying the JCPOA then the status quo and inertia will capture him completely. This will be similar to the policy of “Strategic Patience” that captured President Obama. It will then guarantee the pathways to the nuclear weapons delivering missiles.
Mark Dubowitz further says that the JCPOA will be very similar to the mess that was created by North Korea. Certifying this would mean giving access to the advanced centrifuges, and inter-continental ballistic missiles.
The U.N inspectors will no longer have an access to the military sites. There is a very high possibility that Tehran has conducted work related to the nuclear weapons in the past. This will definitely pose a threat to America because Iran will secretly continue making nuclear weapons.
Mark Dobowitz states that decertifying in no way breaks the deal
Mark says that if US does not certify the JCPOA then it is no way breaking the day. The deal is broken only if the sanctions that were removed are reapplied. On the 14th of September the sanctions on Iran’s oil exports as well as the central bank was completely removed.
However, though these sanctions were removed there were other sanctions that were imposed on Iran. This sanction was however only on individuals and companies who were in some way related to the ballistic missile programs of Iran.
