London, 21 Jan - In September 2015, Donald Trump said that the Iran nuclear deal was a “bad” deal. He said that if he was elected president he would renegotiate with Iran to make it better. But it must be recognised that the Iranian regime’s plans are not just with regards to nuclear weapons. It is developing ballistic missiles and technology transfers and the nuclear deal does not include these.
The Iran nuclear deal was laid out by John Kerry Secretary of State and was validated by the UN Security Council. It is thus improbable that Britain, France, Russia and China will agree to changing the deal. These countries have already started to do business with Iran worth billions of dollars. Boeing in the US has also started doing business with Iran meaning that if the deal was scrapped or amended, sanctions would be applicable again meaning the US and allies would be economically damaged.
