FOL­LOW­ING THE fail­ure of the Repub­li­can party to gather suf­fi­cient votes to op­pose a pres­i­den­tial veto by Barack Obama and a vote taken last week by the Ma­jles in Tehran, of­fi­cial im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Ira­nian nu­clear deal be­gan this week.

The In­ter­na­tional Atomic En­ergy Agency (IAEA) has said that it had re­ceived the nec­es­sary as­sur­ances that Iran has curbed its ura­nium en­rich­ment pro­gramme and other nu­clear ac­tiv­i­ties.

De­spite the fact that or­ders have been given for the re­moval of sanc­tions, there are still ob­sta­cles re­main­ing.

Iran needs to pro­vide the IAEA with more an­swers, and Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial or­ders may not be enough to undo sanc­tions put in place by in­di­vid­ual US states.

There are fur­ther dif­fi­cul­ties, such as the test-launch of a lon­grange bal­lis­tic mis­sile by Iran last week, which Mr Obama claimed was not con­nected to the nu­clear agree­ment.
