Diplomats in the Biden administration have vowed to loosen the US grip on Iran as long as they agree to return to the negotiating table regarding denuclearization. While speaking at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield warned time is running out to reach an agreement.

The ambassador stressed that Joe Biden is willing to lift sanctions on the rouge state, a move Ayatollah has been asking for since Biden first proposed returning to the 2015 nuclear deal. She is concerned that Iran is talking with its mouth when it claims to want peace.

“But Iran’s continued nuclear progress and its lack of urgency in the negotiations are detracting from the nuclear non-proliferation benefits that would be gained when the two sides turn,” said Thomas-Greenfield. return to full JCPOA compliance. “Iran’s continued nuclear escalation is inconsistent with its stated goal of returning to JCPOA compliance.”

The Biden administration’s handling of Iran reflects concerns 45th President Donald Trump drew attention to when he pulled out of the original deal in 2018. He fears Barack Obama’s deal is not sufficiently deterrent. Ayatollah develops their nuclear program.

“At the heart of the Iran deal is a giant fiction that a murderous regime desires only a peaceful nuclear energy program,” Trump announced in 2018. “We have proof today. It is certain that this promise of Iran is a lie.”

Other diplomats have expressed similar concerns that Iran is on the run with its nuclear ambitions. In a joint statement by the ambassadors of France, Germany and Britain, French ambassador to the United Nations Nicolas de Rivière warned that Iran’s nuclear program was stronger than ever. He also warned that the situation was dire.

“For two years now, Iran has taken unprecedented steps and has recently accelerated the pace of resolution of the most sensitive violations of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” the French ambassador explained. “Iran’s nuclear program has never been more advanced than it is today. This nuclear escalation is undermining international peace and security and the global nuclear non-proliferation system.”

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) further downplayed Biden’s hopes of returning to the deal, highlighting the agency’s limited access to Iran’s nuclear facilities.

IAEA Director Rafael Grossi claims cameras have been down at a nuclear site of interest for some time, which he says is hampering the group’s ability to monitor Iran. He called on Iran to lift restrictions on the watchdog and cooperate with international standards if it wants to be recognized as a global leader.

“There is no way around the IAEA,” Grossi declared. “If you want to be a respected nation in the community of nations, there is no other way. We have to work together.”

Meanwhile, Iran has been weighing its nuclear policy with European diplomats in Vienna. The European delegation expressed frustration with the Iranian foreign ministers while declaring that they did not attach importance to the negotiations and continued to point the finger elsewhere because of their reluctance to work towards peace.

Additionally, the White House is looking to rally allies in the Middle East against Iran and will send Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, to Israel next week to discuss the “Iran issue.”
