Israel does not anticipate a renewal of Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers before the U.S. mid-term elections in November.
Speaking to Radio Islam International on this week’s Media Lens report, analyst Ebrahim Deen says Israel has managed to scuffer the deal through a few processes.
“With the upcoming U.S mid-term elections, it is very unlikely that there is going to be any deal now. Biden would not want to indanger democrats chances,” he says.
Regarding the media coverage, Deen said the big issue surrounding the nuclear deal is the bias and inherent prejudice in the scope. Adding, “There is very little focus on the fact that Iran was complying with the deal. But it was the U.S under Trump that called out of the deal.”
The UAE and much of the region seem to be accustomed to Iran now becoming a big player in the area.
Deen says, “Regionally, Iran is in a stronger position now compared to a few months ago, but economically the country is still struggling. And domestically the legitimacy of the regime is still very questionable.”
However, the lack of a deal means oil prices stay higher. And so, globally, it does have a negative impact. Deen said an agreement would be good, but it currently seems as if the U.S situation and the Israeli lobby have ensured that, for now, the best comprehensive deal is not necessarily going to work and be concluded.
