Time to ‘snapback’ sanctions on Tehran, experts say

...Jason Brodsky, the policy director of the U.S.-based United Against a Nuclear Iran (UANI), told JNS that “Iran continues to test international red lines to see what it can get away with in advancing its nuclear program. “Tehran has still not provided a sufficient explanation of the [84%-enriched uranium] particles, although the IAEA director-general maintains there has been no accumulation or production. Nevertheless, this shows the absence of deterrence on the nuclear file,” Brodsky continued. “Iran has advanced its program to such an extent because it has not paid a price yet. It is time for the U.S. and Europe to reset that calculus by holding it accountable. They can start by snapping back sanctions at the U.N. Security Council,” he added. “The process to revive the JCPOA has been dead for a long time. That is because of a confluence of factors—namely the internal political situation in Iran and its supply of arms to Russia for use against Ukraine. This is why there is a pressing need for the U.S. and its allies to outline a new Iran policy,” Brodsky said.
