Können Weltmächte den Iran in neuen Verhandlungen einschränken?

November 29, 2021 - In Wien gibt es neue Gespräche mit Iran und Weltmächten zum Atomabkommen von 2015, das der damalige US Präsident Donald Trump 2018 aufgekündigt hat.

The nuclear deal saw Iran limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. Since the deal’s collapse, Iran now enriches small amounts of uranium up to 60% purity – a short step from weapons-grade levels of 90%. Iran also spins advanced centrifuges barred by the accord and its uranium stockpile now far exceeds the accord’s limits, AP said.

Iran maintains its atomic programme is peaceful. However, U.S. intelligence agencies and international inspectors say Iran had an organised nuclear weapons programme up until 2003. Nonproliferation experts fear the brinkmanship could push Tehran toward even more-extreme measures to try and force the West to lift sanctions.
