Taking the High Road - Iran's Option to Staying within the Nuclear Deal

In spite and despite of United States (US) President Donald Trump's laments, charges and actions against the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal - the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which brought a greater sense of security to the globe, the Islamic Republic now faces a unique opportunity to demonstrate to the international community that it is rational, diplomatically abled and truly peace-seeking by remaining within the nuclear non-proliferation pact.

That nuclear pact was signed by world leaders - the US, the United Kingdom (UK), France, the European Union (EU), China and Russia, and Iran back in July, 2015 bringing a greater sense of stability to the world after some 40 years of hostilities with Iran. It was rightly heralded as a positive step forward to providing a more secure world atmosphere. 

The Trump administration's withdrawal from the agreement fractured the core purpose of the pact. Opposition from Israel also hindered the pact's purpose. 

Adding to the fracture of the already weakened nuclear non-proliferation deal, the US administration earlier this week dispatched a naval group to the Gulf region on allegations of supposed Iranian interference with US interests and holdings. Iran has responded by vowing to forgo compliance with some aspects of the pact and by planning a return to greater uranium enrichment within 60-days, if the remaining non-American members of the pact did not compensate Iran for losses incurred via US actions. 

Earlier today, the EU issued a statement rejecting any ultimatum from Iran and called upon Iran to remain committed to the specs of the Nuclear Deal.

In light of current affairs and now higher risks of conflict, Iran has the opportunity to demonstrate its worthiness and credibility to peace by remaining within the Nuclear Deal. Its continued compliance would convince the EU, China and Russia that Iran is worth defending from any undue further crippling economic sanctions and that Iran is credible enough to buffer from any impending chances of conflict.
