US President Donald Trump said that if he wins the presidential election in November, he will conclude a deal with Iran in a short time.
“We will see what happens to Iran. After the election, I think in a week, maybe a month, but in a very short time, you will see Iran come and say they want a deal. They want a deal, but they want it more with “Sleepy Joe” (Joe Biden, Trump’s rival in the election) than with me, because my deal will be fairer. Just wait for the election to take place. If we win, we will make a deal with Iran,” Trump said at a meeting with the UAE Foreign Minister, answering questions from reporters.
Iran and the “six” international negotiators reached a historic agreement in July 2015 to resolve the long-standing problem of the Iranian atom. Months of negotiations concluded with the
adoption of a Joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPOA), which is completely removed from Iran’s previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UN Security Council, US, and EU.
The agreement, among other things, provided that the arms embargo would be lifted from Iran within five years, and arms deliveries could be made earlier, but only with the permission of the UN Security Council. The deal in its original form did not last even three years: in May 2018, the US announced its unilateral withdrawal from it and the restoration of strict sanctions against Tehran.
