Iran will not allow UN observers to visit Nuclear Sites. On Wednesday, the Iranian Guardian Council approved a law to strengthen their nuclear program.
As a result of the law’s passage, Tehran will no longer comply with the terms of the historic nuclear deal signed in 2015. But, Iran would comply with the sanctions if sanctions were lifted within two months.
Following this, the parliament of Iran approved not allow UN observers a new bill by the majority vote last Tuesday to strengthen its nuclear program.
The bill was later approved by the Guardian Council. The council ensures that any draft law does not conflict with the country’s constitution.
However, it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Iranian Fars news agency reported that the speaker of parliament had issued a letter on Thursday urging the president to implement the new law.
Under the new law, Tehran will give European partners in the nuclear deal two months to ease sanctions on its energy and financial sectors. The sanctions were imposed after Washington withdrew from an agreement reached between Tehran and the six world powers in 2018.
Later, when US President Donald Trump adopted a policy of exerting maximum pressure on Iran, Iran also began to slow down in complying with the agreement.
Iran’s extremist lawmakers are the initiators of the law. Analysts say now that the law has been approved, the country’s newly elected President Joe Biden’s efforts to get the United States back on the nuclear deal will be complicated.
He will be sworn in as president on January 20. Biden has said that if Iran adheres to the nuclear deal, he will bring the United States back to the deal and lift the blockade on Tehran.
Arian Tabatabai, a Middle East researcher at the German Marshall Fund and Columbia University, said in a tweet that the government of President Hassan Rouhani was now under increasing pressure to ensure a speedy withdrawal of the United States from the deal.
President Rouhani, the pioneer of the agreement, has criticized the latest move by parliament. He said it would undermine diplomatic efforts to ease the US blockade.
Earlier, all parties to the agreement including the United Kingdom, France and Germany called on Iran to abide by the agreement.
