Emadi believes that the downside of Salehi’s approach may be the credence it gives to the portrayed image of Islamic Republic by President Trump who repeatedly has stated that Tehran always intended to use its nuclear program toward military application. “I offer the view that this indeed could be a sever dent in the credibility of Tehran’s position that Iran does not wish to obtain nuclear arms. This position so far has been supported by the regular inspections undertaken by the IAEA staff.”
The remarks made recently by Ali Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, on resumption of uranium enrichment has a two tier dimension, Iranian economy expert Mehrdad Emadi told Trend.
“Salehi’s veiled message hinting at the resumption of certain aspects of the Iranian enrichment program and the fact that Tehran can initiate a fast tract recovery phase should the JCPOA partners (minus the U.S.) fail to deliver on their promise of access to the world finance, banking services and energy markets has a two tier dimension,” he said. ” The European dimension aimed at the E3 (Germany, France and the UK) which in my view is the more important part, as it is aimed at motivating E3 to increase their efforts toward encouraging their business communities to return to Iran especially in the automotive, energy and banking.”
