"The military nuclear investigations will be closed": The West's latest concessions to Iran were revealed in the Vienna talks | Israel today

According to a report by the "Wall Street Journal" in an attempt to prevent a final explosion of the current round of talks in Vienna, in recent months the Europeans drafted a far-reaching compromise proposal that will actually bring pressure from all the powers on the International Atomic Energy Agency to accept Tehran's vague explanations for the abnormal activity at the sites The undeclared



Two days after the flash meetings between the powers and Iran as part of the eighth round of talks of the nuclear talks ended again in a stalemate and with a European call to accept the "final compromise" they proposed, the "Wall Street Journal" revealed on Thursday how ready the Europeans and the Americans are to go towards the Iranians. 

According to the report, in order to get Iran to accept the renewed nuclear agreement, which is in fact the same as the original one with minor changes, the Europeans managed to insert a clause that also refers to the pending investigations of the International Atomic Energy Agency against Iran, which deal with Iran's abnormal activity at undeclared sites and which are not related to the agreement the nucleus

This is an activity that took place both in the early 2000s but also much later, even in 2019, in which uranium remains were found at suspicious sites or components that allegedly indicate an attempt to build a bomb or hide part of the nuclear program from the inspectors. 

The original nuclear agreement is not related to these investigations, as the IAEA is an independent body, but Iran conditions its return to the agreement on closing the "military nuclear file". 

According to the report in the "Wall Street Journal", in the final version of the compromise, a clause was inserted that Iran "clarifies to the IAEA what these actions mean" and then the parties will determine that Iran is indeed cooperating with the IAEA.

Even though the IAEA does not have to close the nuclear file even if the powers ask it to, this is a pressure test that will probably have a hard time meeting it.

Western officials who spoke with the newspaper said that the concessions they proposed to include in the text of the nuclear agreement that refer to the IAEA were mainly presented by the European Union, which mediates between the superpowers and Iran. The representatives of the superpowers saw the text on Monday.
