The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Sunday that the Iranian regime refused to honor the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal by preventing inspectors from servicing monitored nuclear facilities two weeks ago.
On the eve of a meeting of the IAEA’s Board of governors, Grossi reached an agreement with Tehran, allowing the IAEA inspectors to service monitoring equipment. This joint statement was released while many western powers were considering adopting perhaps the most serious measures against Tehran’s provocative actions.
The regime has once again dodged the international community’s attempts to thwart their nuclear extortion while they continue to escalate their nuclear program. The only method that Western powers must control the regime’s nuclear program is through negotiations with the mullahs, however, the regime is continuously using those negotiations to bide time and secretly advance its activities.
This was confirmed in an interview with the regime’s current deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani in 2019. He explained how the regime uses negotiations as leverages to advance its nuclear extortion. Kani said, “…we bought some time. But when they were ready to negotiate a deal, the negotiation process expedited.”
In 2015, world leaders made an agreement with the regime, formerly known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This deal put supposed limits on the regime to reduce their capability to make any major advance on their nuclear program, but the regime has continued to defy these sanctions every step of the way.
In 2018, Tehran rapidly started violating its commitments under the JCPOA terms. In less than two years, the regime was able to rapidly enrich uranium even higher than 20%. In August 2021, the regime announced it would begin enriching uranium up to 60% purity.
Back in August, the IAEA reported on the regime’s current progress in their production of enriched uranium metal, the only purpose of which is to develop nuclear weapons.
The former head of the regime’s Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi acknowledged in 2020 that the regime was deceiving foreign powers during negotiations. He stated that while the Western leaders thought they had won the negotiations, the regime had countermeasures in place to prevent them from being ‘trapped in the enrichment deadlock’.
President-elect of the NCRI, Maryam Rajavi stated in 2020 that, “the policies and actions of the mullahs’ regime…leave no doubt that this regime has never given up the project to acquire an atomic bomb and continues the deception and concealment.”
Despite their best efforts, western powers have not achieved their initial goal of curbing the regime’s nuclear programs with their sanctions. The regime has only deceived the international community at every turn, despite warnings and information supplied by the Iranian Resistance.
Failing to achieve a nuclear bomb is an existential threat to the mullahs’ regime. The regime obtaining a nuclear bomb would be serious to the world’s peace and security.
