A renewed Iran nuclear deal appears closer than ever. Here are the remaining sticking points

Iran appears the most optimistic it’s been in years about finally clinching an agreement on a renewed version of the 2015 nuclear deal with the U.S. and other foreign powers.

Iranian negotiating team adviser Mohammad Marandi said on Monday that “we’re closer than we’ve been before” to securing a deal and that the “remaining issues are not very difficult to resolve.” And the European Union’s “final text” proposal for the deal, submitted last week, has been approved by the U.S., which says it’s ready to quickly seal the agreement if Iran accepts it.

Still, there are obstacles to rescuing the Obama-era pact, which lifted sanctions on Iran in exchange for a range of limits on its nuclear program. Iranian negotiators responded to the EU’s proposal, pointing out the remaining issues that may yet prove impossible to reconcile.

And the stakes are high: the more time goes by, the more Iran progresses in the advancement of its nuclear technology — far beyond the scope of what the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the 2015 deal’s original signatories say is acceptable.

Clearly nothing is certain but there is reason for optimism. It would be quite a success for the world's and the ME's security if Iran agrees not to develop nuclear missile capabilities after the colossally idiotic decision by Trump to blow up the previous agreement. Not to mention it would likely lead to more oil being added to the world's market, further pressuring the downward price spiral oil has been on for months. Lowering the price of oil being good for the country but bad for the political fortunes of those who wish the country harm, Repubs.

Only if China and Russia allow Iran to sign that deal and how does that deal benefit China and Russia seeing China get it oil from Iran at a discounted price and Russia just agreed to buy Iranian made cars?

After Trump, I don’t see why Iran would trust us to keep our word
That was one of the concerns expressed at the time of his monumentally moronic decision. But then he never contemplated the consequences of his buffoonery. Nor was he interested in them. He isn't a strategic thinker. He's a self-serving reactionary.

The rest of the world does not trust America not to elect another Republican
And they expect the U.S. to elect their approved candidate?

All Trump cared at the time was that it was an Obama achievement and he was going to undo it

As you bash Trump let ask ourselves how Iran has gotten closer to having a nuclear bomb and let be factual are they going to honor the deal or just lie and still obtain the technology?

Iran two main trading partners are Russia and China, so again how does this benefit Russia and China if Iran agrees to this new deal?

It (Iran) also wants a guarantee that the deal will be binding regardless of future U.S. administrations. Biden cannot legally guarantee that, and the reality remains that another administration could cancel any deal just as former president Donald Trump did.

That would mean a treaty ratified by the Senate. Something I suspect McTreason would try to block since his goal in life is to deny beneficial advances for the country while a Dem is in the WH.

Stalag 17...Two packs of cigarettes say Israel will bomb Iran anywhere there is a hint of a nuke.

Iran threw that into the deal knowing it couldn’t be done and yet you believe Iran is the victim here!

The IAEA had consistently verified Iran was in compliance with the agreement until Trump sabotaged it.

If Sleepy Joe sends the agreement to the Senate for ratification, I don't see why they wouldn't. After all, the US Constitution isn't a "top secret" document.

Iran showed the IAEA what they ( Iran ) wanted them to know, so let be clear Iran has never been truthful about anything just like their buddies Russia and China!

You!

You play them off as the victim and believe they are going to honor the deal when it is well known they will not and you will then blame the next Republican when Iran does not!
