Great win for Biden and the whole word. They would have been there all along if not for petulant Trump. Killing that deal was one of the dumber things he did and that is saying something.

by rolling back nuclear activities that it undertook in response to Trump's sanctions.

Oh so they are doing nuclear activities now.

But only after Trump scolded them? They were totally not doing anything at all up until that exact point in time.

I see.

No, the Iranians were never going to adhere to the “treaty” which in itself was a joke and should have never been signed. It should have been legislated through congress and the guy before Trump decided to bypass congress to get this deal done, now why would he do that? Because he knew congress would have never agreed to this, would never have passed. So this administration has the responsibility and duty to forge legislation to the Iran debacle, but they won’t.

Killing that deal was one of the dumber things he did and that is saying something.

Actually, it was the best thing he could have done to the treaty. Kick it back to congress.

Talking with the leaders of Iran is a waste of time. Talk and drag out the talks, but do not agree to anything.

Perhaps if they don't support terrorism for 5 yrs, then returning to the talks could make sense. Not before.

Biden blunders again.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said he backed diplomacy but also said the United States had "other options" if talks go nowhere.

The country possessing thousands of nuclear warheads in its arsenal telling other countries that they have no right to have them..

The most hypocritical and double standard country in the world..

Talking with the leaders of Iran is a waste of time. Talk and drag out the talks, but do not agree to anything.

Iran complied fully with the agreement they signed and it was American leaders that pulled out of the agreement without any reason for doing so but to satisfy Trump and Israeli desires to not have the agreement at all and so Trump could levy sanctions to look tough to his supporters.

Talking with the leaders like Trump was a waste of time. Talk and drag out the talks, but do not agree to anything.

Trump was and remains the great American embarrassment to the world.

Iran may do many things the world and it's region do not like or agree with, including supporting terrorists. But to be fair other nations like the US, Russia and Turkey have supported terrorist groups when it suited them to do so.

Iran had the chance to prove they would comply with a deal and they did so. They did not cause the current issue with the nuclear agreement, America did. Try to remember that.

Americans tear up an agreement they signed that was a UN treaty and go around the world preaching "rule of the Law "

You can't make this stuff up.

Good, perhaps now the grownup world can repair the damage caused by the man-child Trump and his pointless destruction of a treaty everyone except he and his cabal were satisfied was working.

Of course Iran can be trusted, who would think otherwise?  Just as they request, give them a one week notice before conducting inspections.  That gives them enough time to hide what they are doing.  Does anyone see anything wrong with this?

From the article, you'd never know that the meetings are about how to bring the EU3 states into compliance with the JCPOA.

Iran is, in fact, in compliance with the terms of the JCPOA, because it does contain a 'snapback clause' allowing a party that is fully in compliance to, in the face of sustained noncompliance by the others, to reinstate the status quo that existed before the deal (which was UNSC sanctions for the US, and abiding by the General Safeguards of the NNPT for Iran) as long as steps were taken to preserve the ability to return to the restrictions laid out in the JCPOA.

You'll note how Iran's deal with the IAEA director to temporarily preserve that ability for the restrictions that have a sunset clause coming due is described in a way to imply that it is a deal to temporarily remain in compliance with the General Safeguards of the NNPT, and that Iran's NNPT compliant civilian nuclear activities are implied to violate the NNPT.

You'll also note that the illegal and immoral crimes of the Israeli regime, specifically terrorist attacks on Iranian civilians, are described as if they aren't crimes by a nuclear rogue state against an NNPT compliant state.

Iran is meeting face to face with every other member of the JCPOA to discuss how the EU3, not Iran, can come into compliance with the JCPOA. The EU3 chooses to meet with the US because they seem to feel that they are not allowed to obey their own obligations without permission from the US. The only barrier that has ever existed for the US to rejoin the JCPOA is the American reluctance to come into compliance, for the first time EVER, with the agreement that they insistedon because they refused to abide by the terms of the NNPT when it comes to post dictatorship Iran.
