Obama All Set To Operationalise Nuclear Deal With Iran Even As Netanyahu Cries Foul
Among the tough points to be discussed in operationalising the nuclear deal between the US and Iran, are the details of the check that is to be maintained against Iran. The degree and amount of access to military positions and other nuclear facilities in Iran that are to be available to inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) is a point of contention. An agreement cannot be possible unless the IAEA clearly stipulates on the amount of proliferation it is going to tolerate in Iran. This is to include a comprehensive control over all the nuclear establishments in Iran.
These points and several more are to be discussed by the Israeli delegation led by Israeli National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen. The team is to be in Washington on Monday to chalk out the technicalities in the operationalising of the nuclear deal. Some gaps are being perceived by the Iranian government in the deal. They are to be negotiated between the Israeli team and the US team. The deadline for doing so expires on June 30.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his objections to the deal. He said the deal is to put Iran in a better position to acquire the nuclear bomb rather than push it farther off. Netanyahu’s greatest fears from the nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers being operationalised is that Iran is going to develop a nuclear bomb. There is a strong possibility of it being used against Israel.
The deal is going to lift all kinds of economic sanctions effective on Iran. This will bring Iran in a better position to collect money that is going to support armed militants operative against Iran.
