Antony Blinken announced Monday by videoconference to the Conference on Disarmament meeting virtually in Geneva: “Diplomacy is the best way to achieve the goal” of an Iran without nuclear weapons. The US Secretary of State made a clear speech: “If Iran complies again with the nuclear agreement (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, JCPOA), the United States is ready to do the same. . “
We are clearly far from the maximum pressure policy pursued by the Trump administration which, in 2018, withdrew from the hard-negotiated agreement in Lausanne and signed in Vienna in 2015 and which significantly limited the nuclear capacities of the Islamic Republic. . But to get out of the current impasse, the road will still be long and complicated.
