Washington: US President-elect Joe Biden has signaled a resumption of the nuclear deal with Iran. According to a report by a foreign news agency, US President-elect Joe Biden said in a TV interview that during his tenure, if Iran is ready to strictly implement the nuclear deal, the United States will resume its nuclear program.
Biden stipulates that for this, Iran must abandon its nuclear-stockpiling activities and abide by the agreement. According to Biden, if Iran builds an atomic bomb, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt, and other countries will be under intense pressure to acquire nuclear weapons.
According to the report, when Biden was asked if he would stick to his views on the Iran nuclear deal, he said it was difficult but that efforts would be made.
On the other hand, Iran says that the United States must fulfill its international commitments before further talks. It should be noted that even during the presidential campaign, the newly elected US President Joe Biden had talked about restoring the agreement with Iran.
Iran signed the JCPOA in 2015 with the United States, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom. It said Iran would withdraw its nuclear program and significantly reduce its uranium stockpiles in exchange for easing sanctions. The nuclear deal was scrapped by US President Donald Trump in 2018 and has since been scrapped.
