Determination Missing in European Efforts to Save Nuclear Agreement

Determination Missing in European Efforts to Save Nuclear AgreementDetermination Missing in European Efforts to Save Nuclear Agreement

The nuclear deal between Iran and world powers was hammered out as a result of the "collective will" of the parties involved, so it can be saved only if all the signatories are also determined to do so, says a political observer. 
"Determination has always helped expand relations or advance agendas. If the parties negotiating the JCPOA were not determined, talks could have stalled and there would have been no agreement," Ali Mousavi Khalkhali, editor-in-chief of the Iranian Diplomacy website, wrote in a recent article, using the abbreviation for the 2015 deal's formal name—the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. 
So the co-signatories, particularly the Europeans, need to show a strong will once again to help offset renewed US sanctions against Tehran and keep the accord alive following the US unilateral withdrawal, he added.
