10/25/21 Trita Parsi on Biden’s Awful Approach to JCPOA Negotiations

Scott interviews Trita Parsi about Biden’s bizarre approach to JCPOA negotiations.  When Biden came into office, the Iranians wanted to work out some mechanism to limit any future President’s ability to pull out of the JCPOA in a similar fashion to Trump. The U.S. said no, so the Iranians said they would settle for a binding commitment for the rest of Biden’s first term, but even that was rejected by the Americans. Parsi explains that stability is necessary for sanctions relief to work. He also says Iran’s status as a signatory of the Non-Proliferation Treaty is at risk if the U.S. keeps refusing to move forward.
