Listen: Iran, American Bank, Ernie Monis Jim discussed on FUTURE STATE
"That's always been the point where we could never get to come back, but Virk as the hard bit because you you're allowing foreigners or potential enemies into your country to wander around, inspecting your sensitive facilities, and you're able to get from Iran of all places better of verification than we ever got from the Soviet Union. Absolutely. And one provision that we got, which people really don't understand. There's been a lot of talk that the International Energy Agency can't get into military sites, and that's a problem. And the additional protocol which exists for the i. e. AOL over the world only allows you to negotiate with the country, and ultimately you have to agree to what the country will do in this case. However, there is a process. That can't take any longer than twenty eight days the end of which if the a group of countries that negotiated, this believes that there is sufficient evidence to get into a site Iran must give access during those twenty days. You're watching that sidewalk that Hong bad of course. Now, I think of as a as a geek about verification in other, I'd very many of us, but compliments to you and complimented team into the team to the team. And I would say on the verification measures secretary Ernie Monis Jim, Tim, be two people have been around this world for a very long time. The both earning agrarian line. MIT professor as well. A secretary veggie, Jim. TIMMY, the son of elmo's grease of all arms control, ending the last thirty years at the State Department. And yet critics of the agreement say, why didn't you get them to agree to stop subversion and terrorism? And you got to admit they're doing subversion the narrator and terrible things. Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria Palestine would completely agree. So here's why. First of all, Ron wouldn't agree to discuss those items in this negotiation of, but even if they had imagine what they might have said to us was, okay, we won't give. We won't have Hezballah said rockets across to Israel, but then we want more centrifuges or we want more. I are five's not just I are once a more sophisticated centrifuge. We would be negotiating against ourselves and we had all agreed in the international community that the most important thing was to make sure that Iran could not obtain a nuclear weapon because as bad as their activities are in the region we can do with them, we can deal with them. And if it had a nuclear weapon, they would be able to project such deterrent power, trenches change the whole game. And the other thing I would say is that we were very clear with Iran throughout this negotiation that all the sanctions. That apply to their nefarious activities in the Middle East as well as human rights, weapons sales round the world, although sanctions we're going to stay on the only sanctions that would come off for those specific on for the nuclear indeed, indeed. And so, no, you got this grim, which I think is a major accomplishment. The Trump administration has ripped it up. Walked away without any obvious game plan for what comes next. They renting's trying to keep it in playing all the other signatories at trying to keep it in play. Doesn't look to me like that last very long, very hard to do a by November beginning of November. The oil embargo will be back in place the US the US oil embargo US secondary sanctions will be in place. So that's, that's key. So explain explain the people because I don't think there's a lot of understanding about the. So what that means is if a company does business with the central Bank of Iran will say a German company, right? They can't do business with American banks. And quite frankly, all of the big companies have already left Iran, other totals the run knows Siemens. So too tall is the big French oil, bright, and they were gonna develop a whole field there. And because the American said, if you do that, you can't clear your money through the American Bank ever right? On any deal anywhere the American market marked them obviously than the Iranian market, then they'll be true for almost everybody except the Chinese. Yes. Now what Europe has been trying to do and I don't know whether they'll be able to do it. I think it's very big challenge is to help small and medium enterprise through European financing of some sort to keep the investments going.."
