Making Sense of The Iranian Nuclear Agreement
The Middle East is often depicted in the news as a scary place. One that is full of war, terror and all kinds of scary things. It is interesting to learn that the countries in this area are quite endowed as far as oil and other resources are concerned. One of the commonly mentioned countries, Iran, also referred to as old Persia is also quite a controversial state. If you know a thing or two about nuclear weapons in Iran, then you may have heard about the Iranian nuclear deal. Here are some facts that will help you make sense of the Iranian nuclear deal.
An exiled Iranian group discovered that the country was involved with Uranium and that they intended to use it to come up with a dangerous nuclear arsenal. Of course, if you follow international news than you know how dangerous this could be especially if not controlled and left in the hands of dangerous people such as the Iranian head of state. This discovery was made back in 2002.
The discovery was followed with stern action from not just the UN, but also the EU and other stakeholders such as the USA. Each of these parties agreed that Iran was to be sanctioned for as long as they were not willing to do away with their malicious involvement in creating nuclear weapons.
After a while, there was a deal brought to the table. The goal of the deal suggested that Iran's sanctions would be removed. However, there was a catch. The Middle Eastern country was to be completely transparent regarding her dealings with Uranium and that any activity involving nuclear power had to be strictly related to civilian use. The agreement was signed between Iran and various stakeholders including the USA, and other countries of interest.
This was all back when the Obama administration was still in power. In fact, the then president Barack Obama believed that it was a step forward in the right direction. However, Barack and all the countries for the deal had a lot of opposition form mother states that viewed this as a bad idea. Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, thought it was not a good idea at all.
When Donald Trump came into power, he was supported by Mark Dobowitz CEO of FDD in his new belief that Iran did not deserve to be relieved of their sanctions. In effect, he reverted to sanctioning Iran.
