What the IAEA doesn’t know — or want to know — about Iran’s nuclear program

By Joshua S. Block

 

“The gaps in the IAEA’s knowledge — of Iran’s past nuclear work, of its military sites, of items mentioned in Section T of the nuclear deal, and of the nuclear sites discovered by Israeli intelligence — raise questions about the full extent of Iran’s nuclear program. These gaps are important as we approach November, when President Trump has said the United States will impose sanctions on Iran’s energy sector that could ‘cripple’ its economy to account,” writes Joshua S. Block, President and CEO of The Israel Project, in The HiIl.
“Defenders of the nuclear deal have argued that the United States is wrong to impose sanctions on Iran because the IAEA confirmed it has been complying with the deal. But with its failure to establish a full picture of Iran’s nuclear ambitions, it can’t be said to have confirmed the country’s compliance; just that Iran didn’t blatantly violate the deal at any site that the IAEA has access to.”
