Leading Iran experts offer 'scorecard' for nuclear deal

INTERNATIONAL. JINSA’s Gemunder Center Iran Task Force has released a new report at a panel discussion yesterday to provide an expert analysis of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA), the final agreement with Iran on nuclear disarmament.

The Task Force – co-chaired by Ambassador Dennis Ross, who played a leading role in shaping the Middle East peace process for 12 years under three administrations, and Ambassador Eric Edelman,former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy under President George W. Bush – has detailed a comprehensive series of questions and concerns in three previous reports this year.

This new report analyzes the extent to which the JCPA addresses these issues, which included:

    —  Key restrictions being removed in 5-15 years
    —  R&D on advanced centrifuges
    —  Front-loaded sanctions relief – including up to $150 billion in unfrozen
        assets – with no automatic “snapback” mechanism
    —  An end to the U.N. arms embargo against Iran
    —  No anytime, anywhere inspections

Dr. Michael Makovsky
JINSA CEO
