The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) has asserted that the nuclear agreement between Iran and the international community would not be at its best at the moment. As they mentioned, the main cause of this discomfort should be sought in the lack of trust between the parties involved.
As claimed by Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency of United Nations, this could have serious consequences. In the worst case scenario the nuclear deal established may even break should the mutual distrust situation be extended over time.
Amano also explained that in case what has been termed as “technical failures” happened, this could have enormous consequences. Not only that, it could even lead to the situation degenerating into political problems that may destabilize the area.
The nuclear agreement allows trade relations between Iran and the rest of the international community.
On the other hand, relations between the US and Iran do not seem to have evolved as planned. This increases the tension between the two countries, which hinders the smooth running of the agreement. They seem to have positioned in a climate of mutual distrust of which neither is doing anything to get out.
The nuclear agreement met by both Iran and the international community imposes restrictions on the country on its capacity to generate nuclear energy. In return, the international community has lifted the sanctions and restored trade relations with it.
The turning point that has served to illustrate this mutual distrust took place recently. A bilateral meeting between Iran and Germany that was intended to address trade issues was planned. However, finally, the meeting was canceled. The reason for cancellation was due to the position maintained by Germany regarding the Syrian war as opposed Iran´s position on the Tehran government.
