WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has promised to rejoin the Iran nuclear agreement if Iran abides by the deal, but both sides will have to race against the clock and navigate a political minefield to reach that goal.
Iran and the bombThe 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers lifted punishing economic sanctions on Tehran in return for strict limits on Iran's nuclear activities.
If Iran returns to strict compliance with the nuclear deal, the United States would rejoin the agreement as a starting point for follow-on negotiations," Biden wrote.
Iran faces shortages of medicine and medical equipment, including insulin, drugs for cancer treatment, influenza vaccine and test kits for the coronavirus, according to Iranian officials.
Conservative gainsWithout a deal before Iran's June 2021 elections, Biden may have no willing counterpart to negotiate a deal.
