US eyes Iran's withdrawal from JCPOA

US eyes Iran's withdrawal from JCPOA

By Ali Mirbaqeri

Last year's nuclear deal between Tehran and the major world powers has recorded victories for the Iranian people and shocked the Islamic Republic's sworn enemies.

The agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), made seven anti-Iran resolutions null and void.

Likewise, it shattered the global consensus of world powers against Iran over its nuclear program.  

Furthermore, the accord revealed the divisive nature of the United States and dashed Israel's hopes aimed at provoking an all-out war against the Iranian nation.

These are regarded as victories for Iranians who are seeking peace across the globe. 

Meanwhile, a recent US Congress vote in favor of extending an anti-Iran sanctions law further tarnished the image of US Senators among Americans.

Presently, world powers are determined to comply with the terms of the JCPOA. Such nations have adopted a convergent approach against Washington's non-commitment to the nuclear pact.

The JCPOA is an international agreement which has lifted nuclear-related sanctions on Iran. However, the US Senate passed the Iran Sanctions Act, known as ISA, last week to renew penalties against the Islamic Republic for another 10 years.

ISA attempts to prevent investment in Iran's gas and oil industries. Such attempts will remain futile because Iran has gained major advancements in the energy sector since President Hassan Rouhani assumed office in 2013.

Tehran has boosted its oil output to the pre-sanctions level. OPEC has also authorized the Islamic Republic to increase its oil production. These gains will boost oil revenues and pave the way for luring foreign investment to promote oil and gas infrastructures.  The optimistic outlook indicates that ISA cannot deal a blow to the country's energy sector.

As a result, the approval of ISA is aimed at provoking Iran to scupper the nuclear deal. The US is dreaming of breaking the global consensus on the JCPOA by pushing Iran to withdraw from the deal.

Iranian seasoned politicians should take prudent and wise decisions to foil Washington's plots.  Tehran should make formal complaints to international bodies against the US for violating the JCPOA. 

These lawsuits can exert pressure on Washington to comply with its commitments under the nuclear deal.
