Iran's nuclear aspirations

China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany continue to pursue ways of preserving the Iran nuclear agreement, voice their frustration at President Donald Trump's decision to immediately withdraw the United States from commitments made by his predecessor, Barack Obama; in which President Trump decreed Washington's vote in favor of U.N. Security Council resolution 2231 that endorsed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – which is the technical term of the nuclear agreement with Iran – as null and void.

To further discuss the current situation on the Iranian front, I'm join here in the studio by; Lt. Col. Res. Reuben Ben Shalom - Cross-cultural strategist and columnist at the Jerusalem Post; Mr. Meir Javedanfar – Iran lecturer, IDC Herzliya; and Dr. Eldad Pardo, Research Director – Impact SE & Lecturer on Iran Hebrew University Jerusalem. TV7 Analyst Mr. Amir Oren.

It is important to note that while the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action was not signed by any of the powers that formulated the deal, its endorsement by U.N. Security Council resolution 2231 has demanded from all parties involved to abide by its terms and conditions multinational deal "would contribute to building confidence in the exclusive peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program."

The resolution 2231, has called upon Iran:

Paragraph 3 of Annex B "not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missiles technology,"

a call Iran had rejected time-and-again, stressing Iran will not negotiate over its ballistic missiles program until the U.S. and E.U. dismantle their nuclear weapons. Until that happens, Iran's Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri emphasized 'Iran will continue its ballistic Missiles capabilities.
