Farid Zakaria: The JCPOA is worth preserving

Farid Zakaria, foreign policy analyst and CNN presenter, has written in the Washington Post: If confirmed as secretary of state, Mike Pompeo will arrive at a State Department that has been battered by proposed budget cuts, hollowed out by resignations and vacancies, and neutered by President Trump’s impulsive and personal decision-making style. But Pompeo’s most immediate challenge will not be rebuilding the department and restoring morale; it will be dealing with an acute foreign policy crisis that is largely of the president’s own making — the Iran nuclear deal.

Hadian: Iran uranium stockpile may increase if US exists JCPOA

If the US exists the 2015 JCPOA nuclear agreement with Iran and the world powers, Iran will have four options: 1) Continue to remain committed to its obligations in the JCPOA if the other signatories (EU, Russia, and China) remain committed to theirs; 2) If the US tears up the deal, Iran will set it on fire; 3) If the US exits the deal, Iran will adjust its obligations accordingly; for instance, if our uranium stockpile is 300kgs, this will increase to 400kgs in the event of a US exit; and 4) If the US exists the JCPOA, Iran can counteract this by increasing its obligations to show its goodwill to the world.”
