“It’s not going well,” the Biden Administration admitted.
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan was less than optimistic on December 17 when speaking about efforts to bring Iran back in line with a 2015 nuclear agreement.
“We do not yet have a pathway back into the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA),” Sullivan continued. “Since we walked away from a deal that had fundamentally put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program, they have raced that program forward.”
Iran’s chief negotiator, Ali Bagheri Kani, was the one to come out of the meetings excited, saying that “good progress” had been made and that talks were going to “break for a few days.”
The entire JPCOA fell apart when Donald Trump didn’t want to be a part of it in 2018, as the group couldn’t survive without him leading it.
Since that time, Biden has promised time and time again to re-enter the JCPOA and bring Iran back to the negotiating table.
Like most things Biden gets involved with, “it’s not going well.”
