Years of sensitive negotiations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and World powers - the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK), France, Germany, China and Russia, culminated with a signed agreement between the parties in 2015 that limits Iran's nuclear bomb capabilities.
The agreement has brought a measure of stability to the Middle East and the wider world as Iran's trajectory to acquiring a nuclear bomb, has been curtailed. Moreover, if Iran violates the agreement, the global pact contains the mechanism to reimposing economy-crippling sanctions. European foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini has confirmed that Iran has not violated the agreement.
Yet, because US President Donald Trump does not like the deal, which he considers too lenient on Iran, he wants to change or scrap it. If the suspicions of French President Emmanuel Macron are true that Trump will ditch the agreement in May of this year, then Trump would in essence be contributing toward Middle East and world instability.
Any deal is better than no deal. That the Iran Nuclear Deal holds the provision for punishment upon any violation thereof, is more than sufficient reason to support the treaty.
To ditch the deal just because it is not pleasing to one president, is preposterous. If such undertakings had to be taken each time a particular head of a nation does not like something, then our would would be mired in perpetual chaos.
Therefore, with no violations to the pact, the Iran Nuclear Deal deserves support so that this element of international cooperation could mature toward greater stability in the Middle East and the wider world.
