gzt: At the same time the the Trump team is playing Iran: (opinion from former US diplomat)
CNN: Last week, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) once again reported that all parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) -- including Iran -- are in full compliance with the agreement. This marks the 8th time the agency, in its regular reports mandated by the JCPOA, has confirmed that the nuclear deal is working -- and it must be noted that since the implementation of the JCPOA, not once has the agency found Iran to be out of compliance.
The deal took the threat of a nuclear Iran off the table, but President Donald Trump seems ready to ignore the evidence and declare Iran out of compliance in defiance of all the experts. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley even made the case for the withdrawal from the Iran deal on Tuesday.
Thats good news. if the US want to withdraw from the deal so be it. IAEA can manage it itself. Its things like this that need to happen more often, Trump gradually diluting US involvement in international affairs, leaving them to nations that have a normal leader.
