Explaining the future of Iran Nuclear Deal
The political earthquake that occurred in the United States with President Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal (P5+1) has severely jolted the international politics. If we cast a glance over the history of this Deal – also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – since 2015, we find that almost the entire world endorsed and embraced the agreement between Iran and P5+1 with an open heart. The majority of America’s European allies also voted in favour of the deal. However, sticking to his campaign promise, President Trump has torn it up and has materialized the narrative of his Republican base; without even taking into account the response from Iran that could bring the entire world on the brink of a nuclear catastrophe.
A CNN report outlined that around 62.5 percent US population has supported the Iran Nuclear Deal and only 28 percent voted against it. The significant statistics which unveil the reality of Trump’s decision are that nearly 51 percent of Republicans, overwhelmingly representing Trump’s power base, remained firmly against this deal.
A practical and rational analysis of Trump’s decision raises a question: if deal with Iran to abandon its nuclear designs has failed to yield desirable results, what would be the way to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions and barricade the damming indictment?
Iran was strictly in compliance with the deal. The opinion of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the five signatories of the deal and even the American officials showed that they were deeply satisfied with Iranian cooperation in this regard. The US media also expressed uncertainty on Trump’s possible move on the way forward or indication of any further deal to deal with this conundrum.
