Abstract:

Nation-state efforts to develop or acquire weapons of mass destruction WMD, their delivery systems, or their underlying technologies constitute a major threat to the security of the US and its allies. The international community seeks the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. Iran must meet the demands for implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action JCPOA, its international obligations and demonstrate its nuclear program is entirely peaceful. The nuclear deal assures Irans nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes. On the contrast, the alternatives of the nuclear deal do not provide solid and reliable results. Thus, the deal provides the international community the toolset to limit the challenges in Middle East where long-term economic, political, as well as social problems contribute to the terrorist threat worldwide. Moreover the deal aims to increase the flow of oil to the global market, to advance the US interests in the area, and mainly to strengthen the global nonproliferation regime. However, the international community retains all options to achieve the objective of preventing Iran from producing a nuclear weapon.
