Insider news & Analysis in Iran

Yousef al-Otaiba, the United Arab Emirates ambassador to Washington, said last week in a panel discussion in a Carnegie conference in Washington that the UAE is not happy about the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. He said that the Iranian regime benefited the most from the deal because it still has its uranium enrichment program in place, adding “while we made a commitment to forgo uranium enrichment”, implying that other Middle Eastern countries would like to have the same uranium enrichment capability.

INU - On Monday, Agence-France Presse issued a report emphasizing the fact that the White House had apparently still not determined exactly how it would address the issue of the Iran nuclear deal spearheaded by President Trump’s predecessor. The report highlights the perceived successes of the agreement, in terms of lengthening the “breakout time” for Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. It also notes that the other negotiating parties – the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, and China – all appear to be averse to the notion of renegotiation that was put forward by Donald Trump when he was still just a candidate for office.
