The Iran nuclear deal, which was abandoned by the US President Trump earlier this year, may be quickly restored according to European leaders. Joe Biden, former Vice President of the United States and current chair of the Council on Foreign Relations said that he is convinced that it can be easily fixed.
Biden is certain that it can be done, because the United States got everything we needed up front in order to be able to move forward with this deal. The only reason why Trump stopped the deal was because he wanted to undo anything Obama did. But Biden says that there are enough people in Congress who understand how important the deal is.
The Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2015 after years of negotiations. It allowed Iran to develop their nuclear program for civilian purposes, as long as they obeyed the limits set by this agreement. According to Biden, it has been successful so far and Iran has not violated a single clause.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif agreed with Biden’s statement. He said that Iran is committed to the deal and will remain in it as long as there are no violations from the other side. But he also added that if they see any signs of a violation, they will act accordingly.
Biden added: I think we can fix this.And this is why he is going to discuss the topic with European allies and other world leaders soon.
He is a firm believer in a multilateral foreign policy. He said that dealing with the problems in the US and in Europe is much more successful when they all work together. According to him, Trump’s foreign policy “has been remarkably counterproductive”. But despite his negative attitude towards Trump’s policies, he refused to comment on whether or not impeaching Trump would be a good idea.
Biden also commented on the protests in Iran, which are very similar to the ones that took place several years ago. He said that it is necessary for all democratic countries to support peaceful protesting, but he did not mention whether or not the US will financially aid them.
Last week, Joe Biden announced that he will be running in the 2020 election. This is when Trump responded with a tweet where he said: I look forward to facing whoever it may be. But Biden did not comment on his future political rival yet, because there are many other things to worry about before the race begins.

Zarif added that they will act accordingly if there are any signs of violation, although Iran is committed to deal as long as there aren’t. Biden wants to discuss the topic with European allies and other world leaders soon. Finally, Trump responded to Biden’s 2020 election run by saying that he looks forward to facing him.
