Nuclear Agreement Between Us And Iran

Under the JCPOA, Iran must submit a full report on its nuclear history before sanctions can be received. [287] The IAEA has confidential technical agreements with many countries as part of the standard operating procedure. [287] [289] „Republican legislators call these agreements „secret secondary restrictions“ and assert that the JCPOA depends on a series of agreements that no one in government has really seen.“ [288] Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, a Republican opponent of the agreement, said Kerry had „behaved like Pontius Pilate“ and „washed his hands, kicked the IAEA, because he knew that Congress would not receive this information if no one came out to find it.“ [290] On July 30, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz introduced a resolution requesting a delay in the audit period and argued that „the 60-day period for reviewing such an agreement in the Senate can only be considered beginning when the majority leader certifies that all documents that must be submitted under such legislation according to the definition of „agreement.“ , including any ancillary agreement with Iran and the guidelines for Iran issued by the U.S. government, were forwarded to the majority leader. [179] On 5 August, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano met with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in a briefing on two IAEA documents: an agreement on inspection protocols with Iran and an agreement with Iran on the disclosure of its previous nuclear activities (known as potential military dimensions). [288] [291] After this briefing with Amano, Corker told reporters: „The majority of the members here left the group with many more questions than before the meeting“ and „We cannot even make him confirm that we will have physical access inside Parchin.“ Cardin told reporters, „I thought it was useful today, but it wasn`t a substitute for seeing the document.“ [292] Cornel Feruta, current Director General of the IAEA, meets with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, President of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi and other representatives in Tehran to discuss the implementation of the Agency`s nuclear security measures. Feruta said the IAEA`s work required „full and timely cooperation from Iran.“ Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said an exit from the Iran nuclear deal would entail a „high cost“ to the United States,[395] and that no president should „revoke alone“ the agreement signed by the United Nations. [396] In March 2012, the EU`s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, speaking to Western powers, announced that she had „proposed to resume talks with Iran on the nuclear issue“. [78] On 14 April 2012, Iran and the P5-1 countries met in Istanbul to resume talks on Iran`s nuclear programme. The talks lasted two days and were described as constructive, with both sides saying they were out of conflicting rhetoric and saying they were ready to hold a new round of talks in Baghdad in May 2012.
