What’s going on with the US’s latest nuclear deal?

Posted November 30, 2018 09:20:22 President Donald Trump signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) with his counterparts from Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Russia in New York on Friday morning.

The pact will prevent nuclear weapons from being transferred to Iran and will allow a new round of talks with the Islamic Republic about the long-term future of its nuclear program.

The agreement was reached with the United States in the wake of a major US intelligence assessment that the Iranian regime is seeking a nuclear weapons capability.

The White House said the agreement will allow for a dialogue between Iran and the P5+1 group of powers, including the United Kingdom, France and Russia, and the international community.

But it was not clear if Trump was happy with the deal, as he said during his speech.

The deal will allow the United Nations to resume its inspections of Iran’s nuclear sites and allow inspectors to continue working to verify compliance with the NPT.

It will also allow the US to allow inspectors access to any sites deemed sensitive.

The US has said that any nuclear facility would be checked, but has not said what type of inspections they will have to conduct.

“This agreement is an important step in the right direction to ensure that the world’s nations take decisive action against Iran’s destabilizing nuclear program,” the White House tweeted on Friday.

“It will make the world safer by protecting the security of our allies and partners and ensuring that Iran is able to continue its dangerous pursuit of nuclear weapons.”

US Secretary of State John Kerry told the UN Security Council on Friday that he expected the agreement to be implemented within days, though he acknowledged that “some details are still missing”.

He said the US would make a formal announcement “as soon as possible”.

Mr Kerry, who was travelling to New York for a UN meeting on the Middle East peace process, said he hoped the agreement would be implemented “within days”.

Mr Trump’s announcement also raised the possibility that Congress would take up the NPN.

Congress is likely to consider whether to pass a new nuclear arms control treaty with the P2+1 grouping of nations, including China, Russia and the United Arab Emirates.

However, Mr Trump has said he intends to veto any deal that contains provisions that would weaken the US nuclear deterrent, which he says would allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon.

“The only reason why we have not had this deal is because the Congress has been totally obstructionist, and that’s what they want to do,” Mr Trump said.

He added that he believed the deal could be implemented without Congress.

The Trump administration said the deal would reduce the risk of Iran obtaining a nuclear bomb by at least $1 trillion over the next 30 years.

“We have not yet been able to get a deal with Iran that would allow us to stop that from happening,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.

“But it’s very, very important that we do not see Iran getting a nuclear program.”

The deal includes sanctions relief, and US companies can resume exports of uranium to Iran.

However the White New Deal would allow the lifting of certain sanctions, including a ban on the export of US goods to Iran, a move the White Senate said would reduce Iran’s revenue.

The Obama administration had said it wanted to ease some of the sanctions, but the Trump administration’s position was that sanctions should remain in place until the deal is implemented.

It said the Iran deal would make it easier for Iran to continue enriching uranium.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing on the Iran nuclear deal on Friday afternoon.

The full Senate has voted to pass the deal by a vote of 38-4.

A new round with Iran will begin on October 29.

The talks have already been fraught, with the administration claiming the P4+1 countries have “not been forthcoming” in their discussions.

“At the outset, the P3+1 states were not forthcoming in their negotiations with Iran,” the US said in a statement.

“Now, in the face of unprecedented threats from Iran, the Trump Administration is working to get the nuclear deal done.”

It was the first time in more than 30 years that the Senate had voted to lift the sanctions imposed after Iran’s 1979 revolution that ended the US-backed Shah’s rule.

“President Trump’s decision to sign the Nuclear Posture Review and other agreements that he signed today will allow us all to get our lives back to normal and secure our borders, and help ensure that Iran can’t get nuclear weapons,” Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican who is a member of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, said in the statement.

The P4 and P5 countries are Russia, China, France (the European Union) and the UK.

Iran has not been in talks with any of the P6 countries.

The United States has accused Iran of violating the nuclear accord by trying to develop nuclear weapons.
