      It’s from .

      As noted in the article,

      Washington unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018 under former President Donald Trump, who later imposed fresh sanctions on the Islamic republic despite Iran abiding by the deal. As a result, Iran ramped up its uranium enrichment to unprecedented levels in violation of the terms of the agreement.

      Unless I’ve missed recent developments, I haven’t heard any proposal from President Diplomacy First to withdraw sanctions or to return to the original agreement.

      The article begins with

      US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has stated that nuclear deal negotiations “cannot go on indefinitely”, but says the White House is still willing to engage in diplomacy with Tehran over the issue.

      During a news conference in Kuwait on Thursday, Blinken expressed dissatisfaction at the lack of resolution over negotiations on Iran’s nuclear deal. The secretary of state upheld that “the ball remains in Iran’s court”.

      “We’re committed to diplomacy, but this process cannot go on indefinitely… we look to see what Iran is ready to do or not ready to do and remain fully prepared to return to Vienna to continue negotiations”, Blinken asserted.

      How about we leave other countries alone.They woud then feel less pressure to develop nuclear weapons in the first place. Ya think? Even North Korea.
      Now, what about Israel, the foremost terrorist nation in the Middle East, except for us, U.S.?

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.
      Don't forget that the S in IoT stands for Security.

      From the preamble of the NPT:

      Recalling that, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, States must refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes
      of the United Nations, and that the establishment and maintenance of international peace and security are to be promoted with the least diversion for armaments of the world’s human and economic resources,

      Article 4

      1. Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.

      2. All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of
      nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world.

      The NPT forbids imposing arbitrary agreements on other States through coercion and force . Clearly, it is the US and not Iran, who is in violation of the NPT.

        Fortunately, she wasn’t Secretary of State by 2014 or Crimea and eastern Ukraine would have plenty of bomb craters. Well, eastern Ukraine has its share now, but that’s from western Ukraine, not the US . . .
