Draft bill hardening Iran's nuclear stance clears first hurdle in parliament
  + stars: | 2020-12-01 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.98   time to read: +1 min
DUBAI (Reuters) - A draft bill requiring Iran’s government to pursue uranium enrichment of 20%, and to disregard other restraints put on its nuclear programme by an accord reached with foreign powers in 2015 cleared its first hurdle in parliament on Tuesday. The legislation was proposed in the wake of the assassination of a top nuclear scientist on Friday, and the hardline-dominated parliament cleared the draft on the first reading in a session broadcast live on state radio. Parliament has often demanded without much success a hardening of Iran’s position on the nuclear issue in recent years. Iran has already breached limits in its nuclear deal with world powers to protest at a U.S withdrawal from the accord. The maximum fissile purity to which it has enriched uranium has remained around 4.5%, above the deal’s 3.67% cap but below the 20% Iran has achieved before and the 90% required for a nuclear bomb.

Israel, long suspected of killing Iranian nuclear scientists over the last decade, has declined to comment on the attack. Iran long has maintained its nuclear program is peaceful. Though long suspicious of Iran's nuclear program, the Emirates has said it wants to de-escalate the crisis. Protesters hold the pictures of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran's top nuclear scientist, during a demonstration against his killing in Tehran, Iran on Saturday. The nuclear watchdog has provided an unprecedented, real-time look at Iran’s civilian nuclear program following the country’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Days after the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a top Iranian nuclear scientist, retired US Navy Adm. William McRaven said that retaliation is all but inevitable. I don't see any way around it," McRaven, former head of US Special Operations Command and the Navy SEAL who oversaw the bin Laden raid, said on ABC's "This Week." Retired Navy Adm. William McRaven, the former Navy SEAL and special operations commander who oversaw the bin Laden raid, said Sunday that Iranian retaliation for the assassination of a prominent nuclear scientist is all but certain. "The Iranians are going to be in a position where they have to retaliate," McRaven said. McRaven had a distinguished career as a Navy SEAL, serving as the 11th commander of Joint Special Operations Command and the ninth commander of US Special Operations Command.

The assassination of a top Iranian nuclear scientist was designed to derail President-elect Joe Biden's plans to return to the 2015 nuclear deal, according to experts and former US diplomats. One top expert on the Middle East told Insider that the assassination "fits with Israeli long-standing policy of targeting Iranian nuclear scientists." A former US diplomat told Insider there are "are ample reasons to suspect US involvement" in last Friday's attack, citing President Donald Trump's opposition to the Iran nuclear deal. The Trump administration aimed to cripple Iran's economy and squeeze it into negotiating a more stringent version of the 2015 nuclear deal. But the Soleimani strike essentially led Iran to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal altogether.

The IAEA and U.S. intelligence agencies believe it had a coordinated weapons programme that it halted in 2003. After Trump entered the White House promising to scrap the nuclear deal, Israel stepped up a campaign saying Iran had lied about the extent of its past nuclear activities. But she said his work in creating an infrastructure to support Iran’s nuclear work meant “his death won’t fundamentally alter the course of Iran’s nuclear programme.”This was echoed by Iranian officials. “He created a network of scientists that will continue his work,” said Fereydoon Abbasi, an Iranian nuclear scientist and former head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation, who survived an assassination attempt in 2010.

The killing, which Iran’s president was swift to blame on Israel, threatens to spark a new Middle East confrontation in the final weeks of U.S. President Donald Trump’s term. Trump pulled Washington out of the 2015 international nuclear pact agreed with Tehran. He was the only Iranian scientist named in the IAEA’s 2015 “final assessment” of open questions about Iran’s nuclear programme. It said he oversaw activities “in support of a possible military dimension to (Iran’s) nuclear programme”. He was a central figure in a presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2018 accusing Iran of continuing to seek nuclear weapons.

Some critics, however, call it a risky gambit that puts someone with a questionable human rights record and who has been close to Iran at the heart of the Iraqi military. Egyptian military officials denied Lami was among a batch of Iraqi officers undergoing training in Egypt. Kadhimi has made security sector reform a priority, focusing on a reshuffle of top state security posts. Yet U.S. and Iraqi officials say the militias continue to harass the 3,000 or so remaining U.S. troops based in Iraq. An Iraqi security official said recruiting Lami into the army was part of an attempt by Kadhimi to bring the PMF closer to his government.
