The Iran nuclear deal: the Iranian and US domestic factors that put its implementation at risk

Post thumbnail print


The Iran nuclear deal with E3+3 and P5+1 is not without its detractors. The Iranian Conservative Party, the US Republican Party and Israel disapprove. This policy brief aims to understand the Iranian and US domestic factors that could challenge the implementation of the deal. The 15-year implementation process is likely to be affected by the state-centric Constitution of Iran, which leaves no room for foreign and, in particular, Western considerations, and by US Republican fears relating to the security of the state of Israel. Other objections come from Arab Sunni States as well as US Democrats also concerned about Israeli security.
