Tirman: JCPOA opportunity for EU to leave US dominance
Speaking about Donald Trump turning down European requests about the US staying in the 2015 JCPOA Iran nuclear deal and the deepening gap between the US and EU, John Tirman says: “This is a golden opportunity for the EU to rebalance the alliance, which for decades has been dominated by the U.S.”
John Tirman: Sanctions will not be re-imposed in JCPOA
John Tirman, Professor at MIT, says: “I don’t think JCPOA will be destroyed, even with U.S. withdrawal. I don’t think sanctions of the kind that existed before could be re-imposed.”
Tirman on JCPOA: Trump's pattern of withdrawal
I expect him to withdraw from the deal. This is his pattern. Unfortunately, there are many in the U.S. besides his political base who do not like the deal, so-called neocons, the Israel Lobby, and some in the national-security community.
