Netanyahu called the deal “terrible,” but he made no claim about its efficacy. This was perhaps the most striking aspect of the Israeli leader’s presentation. S.—and was willing to share it with others, as well.
He did not explicitly say Iran was working on a bomb. He railed against Iran and its nuclear activities, and called the JCPOA a “terrible deal” that “should never have been concluded.” But he stopped short of urging withdrawal, simply saying he hoped Trump would “do the right thing.” It may be that the Israeli leader didn’t want to be seen as putting public pressure on Trump, who must decide by May 12 whether or not the U. In Washington, Trump said: “We’ll see what happens.
in 2015 when it didn’t come clean to the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency] as required by the nuclear deal.”Netanyahu said the JCPOA required Iran to fully disclose its nuclear activities, though this is not in the text of the deal.
Netanyahu asserted that the Islamic Republic had violated the agreement through its pointed denials that it even had a weapons program.
Since signing the nuclear deal in 2015, Iran's government has made significant attempts to attract investment into the country and offers Western business large market opportunities.
Also, based on PPP (purchasing power parity), Iran has the 18th largest economy in the world.
With a total population of 80 million, over half of which are under the age of 30, it is an educated, urbanised and tech-savvy population.
But Netanyahu said that some of the same individuals who had worked on Iran’s nuclear-weapons program went on, after the weapons programs formally shut down, to work in dual-use projects disguised as civilian nuclear work, which may be going on to this day. 100,000 files right here prove that they lied.”Netanyahu has long been a critic of the deal—and of Iran.
(International monitors say Iran is complying with the agreement.)“The nuclear deal is based on lies. He believes that the regime in Tehran cannot be trusted, and his presentation was intended to persuade his allies in the international community in general, and in Washington, D. As Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who is a staunch critic of the JCPOA, said on Twitter: “Simple takeaway from Netanyahu presentation: Iran regime conducted nuclear weaponization activities, lied to the IAEA and to the world & hid 100,000 documents, videos, photos with the instructions to restart a nuke weapons program at a time of its choosing.” What Netanyahu did not say about the JCPOA is perhaps as important as what he said about Iran’s actions. Even some of the JCPOA’s critics concede that it is, in the short term at least, achieving its stated goal: preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
