Iran's Nuclear Program

Serhiy Polyovyk

Attention of world news agencies and political analysts in recent days has been drawn to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech of April 30, 2018, regarding the capture by Israel's special services of Iran's secret “atomic archive”.

Meanwhile, May 12 is coming, the date on which the USA should decide on its participation in the JCPOA, namely either to continue the freezing of sanctions against Iran, or to declare the agreement void and re-impose sanctions.

Keeping the JCPOA, can mean continuation of fragile peace in the region. The USA's withdrawal from the “nuclear deal” with Iran with a high degree of certainty would mean a regional war with undesired consequences for Ukraine. In view of the above-mentioned, it is most likely that the USA will decide to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action over Iran's nuclear program, which will have serious consequences for the development of the geopolitical situation in the region and in the world.
