Iran Focus

London, 7 Dec - Iran’s nuclear program has cost more than $500 billion since 2006, according to the Arab Strategy Forum in Dubai.

In a new report, entitled ‘The Economic Costs and Consequences of Iran’s Nuclear Program’, the Forum said that international economic sanctions have cost Iran over $500 billion to date, while some $50 billion more has been spent to develop and operate infrastructure and facilities for the program.

London, 6 Dec - U.S. President Donald Trump had been threatening to pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or 2015 Iran nuclear deal as it is also known, since the beginning of his presidency. European leaders pleaded with him to keep the deal intact, trying to convince him that having a weak deal in place was better than having no deal in place.

London, 4 Dec - When U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or 2015 Iran nuclear deal as it is known, Iranian officials were very outspoken about what action Iran could take.

Many said that Iran will pull out of the agreement too, while others have said that the Islamic Republic would weight up the benefits and downsides of leaving before making a decision.

London, 5 Dec - Senior officials in Washington who are denying that Iran currently has nuclear weapons are basing their assertion on little more than wishful thinking.

How do we know this? Because back in 2016, just weeks after the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), came into place, senior Reagan and Clinton administration officials warned that Iran probably already has nuclear weapons.

London, 27 Nov - A senior Iranian official has admitted that Iran now receives little benefit from the 2015 nuclear deal since the US reimposed sanctions on the country earlier this year, which means that sanctions are working.

Speaking at a seminar on Iran-EU cooperation held in Brussels, on Monday, November 26, Abbas Araqchi, the Islamic Republic's deputy foreign minister for political affairs, said: "The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is in a ‘critical situation’… This is a reality".
