President Wants to Secure Iran Nuclear Deal

He talks to U.S. partners about Iran’s ambitions. 

On Sunday, President Biden spoke with three of the signatories to the Iran nuclear deal about the importance of containing Tehran’s “destabilizing regional activities” as the president moves toward renewing the 2015 agreement. 

He held wide-ranging conversations with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emanuel Macron, and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. They also covered other global issues including  Russia and China, which also signed onto the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran deal, but who were not part of the conversation. 

The four leaders “discussed ongoing negotiations  over Iran’s nuclear program” and “the need to strengthen support for partners in the Middle East region.” 

The U.S. and the European Union said last week that they were studying Iran’s response to what the EU has called its “final” proposal to revive the deal, under which Tehran curbed its nuclear program in return for economic sanctions relief. 

Israel had opposed the original deal and President Biden’s efforts to revive it. That nation has expressed concerns that the U.S. will make last-minute concessions that will make what it considers to be a bad agreement even worse. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president to seek God’s wisdom in his attempts to revive the Iran nuclear deal.
  • For President Biden as he discusses the provisions of the treaty with allies.
  • For discernment for the president’s advisors regarding the impact of the deal on Middle Eastern stability and relations.
