The reason the regime was willing to agree to this much of a deal was the “explosive social state in Iran, the erosive impact of the international sanctions, the deadlock of the regime’s policies in the region as well as its grave concern over the toughening of the terms of the agreement by the U.S. Congress,” said Maryam Rajavi, President Elect of the NCRI.
Rajavi called the agreement a “lose-lose” proposition for regime. Since the Iranian regime has seen its nuclear ambitions curtailed, but not eliminated, this will fuel a power struggle within the regime. Thus, the internal balance of power controlled by the Khamenei will be disrupted. So greater control will not be achieved in Iran and their nuclear ambitions have been curtailed.
The deal, which eliminates sanctions and gives Iran much needed assistance for its populace, also includes some nuclear monitoring. The current agreement reduces Iran’s centrifuges by two-thirds and limits where enrichment, research and development can occur.
According to the United States’ President Obama, the agreement is not based on trust but verification. The deal includes inspections by the IAEA indefinitely. The amounts of nuclear material that Iran will be allowed to have has been limited and the spent material must be shipped out of the country, not retained.
Rajavi indicated that any agreement needs to address the human rights violations within the borders of Iran. Numerous executions, among other human rights issues, have been documented within Iran.
According to the NCRI, the Iranian people were told that this agreement meant their bread, butter and their lives. Rajavi pointed out that without controls to guarantee the money given to Iran is spent on the people, not only for necessities, but also for salaries for various public personnel, funds will be funneled into the Iranian Regime Guard Corps (IRGC).
The NCRI encourages the world powers to yield their power to force Iran to give up all nuclear capabilities. They also support a 10 point plan that includes sanctions meant to force a regime change. Rajavi and her cabinet have released several reports, documenting how Iran is attempting to deflect the talks away from key areas. These reports were released throughout the talks.
