“The U.S. and European participants (Britain, Germany, and France) to the nuclear agreement with Iran have submitted on June 7 to the Board of Governors of the IAEA, the UN nuclear watchdog, a resolution seeking to censure Iran’s illicit activities. … Iran’s transgressions followed the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from the agreement under Donald Trump. Iran kept fulfilling its commitments for more than another year. Since Joe Biden has not fulfilled, so far, his campaign pledge to return to the JCPOA, Iran continued to expand its nuclear program beyond the limits of the deal. The solution to the current stalemate is a swift and full return to the JCPOA by all sides, starting with the United States as the party that violated it first.” (06/08/22)
