Iran nuclear deal appears close to collapse
May 26, 2016
No sooner had the Iranians finish ceremonies nuclear agreement, which was to lift the harsh economic sanctions on Their country, have become so evident before the fact; namely, that the agreement Astmataat Tehran and Washington in order to reach it could collapse sooner than pessimists had expected more.
The reason for this is to prevent the continuation of Iranian banks from dealing with their American counterparts, and then not being able to get a dollar, to which Iran desperately needs to complete commercial transactions and to attract investors who fear the wrath of the United States.
Suzanne Maloney, an expert disputes in the field of energy and international security in the nuclear deal, unable to continue, describing “a vehicle traveling on the road, but he began to lose its wheels before reaching the desired station,” and in less than a year of signing.
International Sanctions are not related to the Iranian nuclear file still exist in ways that lead to paralysis of the Iranian economy, which increases gradually from the wrath of the top leadership in Tehran.
Although the application of the nuclear agreement led to the lifting of a lot of penalties, but it has only allowed the Persian carpet Iranian pistachio to enter the US market among Iran’s exports.
US promises to Tehran, reported by large US negotiator Wendy Sherman, it did not materialize and said her that “the whole world will race to get to Iran so that Tehran Stvid foreign investors.”
The Iranians are gradually discovers that these promises were likely to “fake a bonus.”
Tehran has not been able to benefit from more than $ 100 billion is still in international banks. The reason for this is that the laws of the United States, which were not included in the nuclear deal, is still very tight on Tehran.
These US sanctions that come out of US-Iranian understanding to make the majority of foreign investors are moving away from the Iranian market, with foreign banks refrain from financing any projects in Iran, fearing breach of US sanctions.
In parallel with this, the Iranian leadership is almost lose patience, as began to accuse the US administration that it did not abide by its commitments.
And Iran is one of the most exporters affected since the sharp decline in oil prices in the summer of 2014. Even in the best of times, were not the Islamic Republic never an easy place, especially to do business, and a lot of structural economic problems exacerbated ten years ago as a result of sanctions, have continued since the rule of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Tehran wants Washington ease these sanctions, but this will require a resolution from Congress, which is unlikely amid the momentum of the election, as some Democrats are not in the mood allows them to reconsider the agreement considered by many faulted.
US experts believe that the time is well suited to achieve the wishes of Iran, as members of Congress tends to move in the opposite direction, which means more sanctions on Iran, which recently resumed its program for ballistic missiles.
In contrast hardliners close to the supreme leader does not want to continue in the application of the nuclear deal, and urged the president “moderate” Hassan Rowhani to cancel it.
He says Taylor Collis legal expert who specializes in US-Iranian relations that “the political atmosphere shut the doors to the two parties.”
Obama is also facing similar attacks and criticism from senior figures accusing him of being “intentionally” lied to Congress, after recognition of the adviser in the White House for giving inaccurate information in terms of timing to the Congress which led to the ignition of conservative criticism toward the president.
It is believed Roger Cohen, a writer on international affairs and diplomacy, that American policy would put the deal with Iran at high risk.
Cohen says that the hardline policy adopted by Washington by blocking US and European banks to finance investments in Tehran through sanctions is to maintain the policy of “shoots himself in the foot.”
He added that the US sanctions will make Rouhani in next year’s election bad situation, because he will not be able to convince voters that the agreement reflected positively on the Iranian economy and thus moderates will fall and be replaced by hardliners.
