If Tehran is not convinced to return to the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan on Iran’s nuclear programme, the Islamic Republic will be able to acquire nuclear weapons in the foreseeable future.
This statement was made by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of France, Jean-Yves Le Drienne.
“If they do not comply with the terms of the Vienna agreement in the future, then of course in the short term – in one or two years – they will have access to nuclear weapons”, – е said the French official.
As News Front reported earlier, Iranian authorities have announced that they have terminated most of their nuclear programme obligations under the PRSA. This happened against the backdrop of a high-profile and highly provocative attack by the U.S. military that targeted Qasem Suleimani, commander of the elite Iranian unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The strike was carried out on the personal order of President Donald Trump, allegedly in order to “protect U.S. personnel abroad”.
