Iran's nuclear Ambitions amid Latest developments

With President-Elect Joe Biden’s inauguration a little over a month away, the Islamic Republic of Iran is anxiously awaiting the formulation of Biden’s cabinet and policy, as well as the corelation of forces in Washington, which could depend on the results of the two Georgia Senate contests. But even if the Republicans keep their Senate majority, they could at most block some of Biden’s nominees and initiatives, not impose any on him. So for the time being Tehran is in a waiting mode, accumulating low-enriched uranium as a signal it could do more if it wanted, keeping its powder dry so as not to give the outgoing Trump administration a pretext for a major military strike, and prepare for a resumption of talks and the lifting of sanctions promised by Biden once the US reverts to the Obama-era line rejected by Trump.
