Obama’s Deal WORTHLESS – Experts CONFIRM

(5MinNewsBreak.com) – Confirming Democrats make America look weak on the global stage, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director Rafael Grossi revealed he was frustrated with a worthless deal Barack Obama signed with terrorists.

Speaking to Russia’s Izvestia newspaper, Grossi discussed the defunct status of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Grossi noted, “The deal exists only on paper and means nothing” and elaborated that further attempts to put it into action have not succeeded.

“Nobody applies it, nobody follows it. There have been attempts to revive it here in Vienna. But unfortunately, although they were relatively close to success, they failed for reasons unknown to me, because I was not involved in the process,” he explained.

Originally, the JCPOA aimed to curb Iran’s nuclear capabilities in exchange for lifting international sanctions, but the agreement has been caught up in controversy.

Citing documents obtained by Israeli intelligence in 2018, critics have long accused Iran of violating its commitments under the deal.

Since it was not working, former President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the agreement in May 2018 for being ineffective.

“We cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement,” Trump stated.

Following the U.S. exit, Iran stopped sticking to the deal significantly, even though European signatories remained formally committed.

Iran’s frustrations with the deal had begun even before the U.S. withdrawal, as it felt the economic benefits promised were not fully realized.

Renewed U.S. sanctions exacerbated Tehran’s economic difficulties, prompting the Iranian regime to blame American policies and dismiss European efforts to salvage the deal.

Grossi’s interactions with Iran have been challenging, particularly regarding access for IAEA inspectors.

“I continue to tell my Iranian colleagues that we must provide the agency with at least minimal access to help return to the second version of the JCPOA or any other agreement,” he stated.

In his efforts to maintain some semblance of the original nuclear deal, Grossi has often found himself balancing criticism of Iran’s actions with the need to keep Tehran cooperative.

However, patience is wearing thin internationally. In early June, the IAEA board, excluding Russia and China, voted to censure Iran for impeding nuclear inspectors’ access.

Following the IAEA’s censure, Iran announced plans to expand its uranium enrichment.
