Last week, the Biden administration took a major step toward resuming the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran when it announced that it was ready to begin negotiations with the Islamic Republic unconditionally and by European states In an initial meeting the broker has accepted the invitation. There may be a meeting this week.

The administration also dropped several restrictions imposed on Iran by the Trump administration, including a travel ban on Iranian officials.

The timing of the Biden administration’s announcement was keen because of a surge in threats and militant actions by Iran, such as a rocket attack on February 15 by an Iranian-backed militia and step-up attacks against a US base in Irbil, Iraq. An Iranian terrorist surrogate, against Houthi rebels against Yemeni civilian targets and Saudi Arabia.


Iran has recently accelerated its nuclear weapons program by producing uranium metal and increasing uranium enrichment.

In addition, Tehran has threatened to expel international nuclear power inspectors if oil and banking restrictions are not lifted by Feb. 21 and has released a list of seven prerequisites for the United States to meet before it Agree to resume nuclear talks. Iranian officials have also insisted that they would refuse to discuss any changes to plug the flaws in the original agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or a follow-up deal.

It is also strange that a new president can plan such a big policy change in his administration before conducting a full policy review.

Typically, the new presidential administration, considering significant changes in foreign policy, will spend several months reviewing enforced intelligence as part of a policy review to consult with allies and generate policy options for the president.

For example, the Trump administration conducted a 90-day review of the JCPOA from April to July 2017. President Trump delayed the withdrawal of the nuclear deal to allow American diplomats the opportunity to work with European leaders and members of Congress to find ways to fix the JCPOA flaws or negotiate a better follow-up agreement. When these efforts failed, Trump pulled out of the JCPOA on May 8, 2018.

Conversely, without conducting any internal review and with only a few brief discussions with foreign officials, Biden officials plan to change America’s Middle East policy and US policy toward Iran, even if President Biden is a whole Haven’t been in the post for months. To date, Biden has spoken to only one Middle East state head – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Making it more worrisome, when Biden was Vice President, Iran was far more dangerous to the region and the world.

Despite huge concessions made by the US to negotiate the JCPOA – including the relief of billions of dollars in sanctions – Iran’s belligerent behavior deteriorated significantly following the nuclear deal. Iran’s support for mediation in terrorism and regional disputes worsened.

Sound and competent foreign policy-making cannot be pursued.

And over the past two years, Iran has used ballistic missiles and drones to attack US bases in Iraq and Saudi Arabia, including an oil facility. There is also conclusive evidence of a large-scale deception of Iran over the nuclear deal to continue its secret nuclear weapons program.

So why is Joe Biden in such a hurry to restart the Iran nuclear deal?

Donald Trump reveals an important reason Biden’s passion for reversing everything quickly as president. This has become evident in dozens of executive orders Biden has signed since his first day in office.

The new president is presumably particularly committed to re-inducting the JCPOA as soon as possible because Trump did a great deal to thwart the deal, which most Democrats consider a foreign policy achievement of President Barack Obama’s legacy. For Biden and his allies, Iran’s return to the nuclear deal is – and is – personal.

The other reason for the haste is probably that Biden’s colleagues, many of whom worked on the JCPOA during the Obama administration, feel they know they need to know about the JCPOA and therefore do not believe that A policy review is necessary. They saw no need to consult with Middle East leaders before sending Biden to a potential EU-brocade meeting with Iranian officials.

It was common in the Obama administration to have such information — and that is why Obama did not usually meet his daily intelligence briefers. This attitude hurt Obama’s foreign policy-making, particularly over threats from ISIS, and hurt the Biden administration, because despite his experience working on the Iran nuclear issue, he had been working with intelligence on the issue for the past four years. You will learn a lot by gaining information and consult carefully with foreign leaders and experts of US government. Biden will meet with officials after speaking with Middle East leaders who supported Trump’s Iran policy and strongly opposed the JCPOA-linked US.

And finally, Biden could go so fast when he opens nuclear talks with Iran in response to Iran’s recent upsurge of provocation and threats. It would be very disturbing if it were true because it would mean Biden giving in Iranian blackmail and telegraphing Tehran that it could manipulate Biden policymaking by committing acts of violence. Biden officials must reassure the American people and the world that this is not the case.

Sound and competent foreign policy-making cannot be pursued. Careful deliberation and intelligence must be reviewed to make decisions based on the best possible and most objective information of the President. Taking part in the decision to restart the Iran nuclear deal because of his hatred of Trump, everyone knows of the Biden allies or the Iranian threats that the result of the poor will surely result in US and global security as well as the US Global reliability will fall. .
