IRAN DEAL BEING IMPLEMENTED
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.
