In 2015, when Iran agreed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iran Nuclear Deal, the country’s leaders vowed to roll back their nuclear weapons program in exchange for sanctions relief. A new report from German intelligence shows evidence that the opposite is actually taking place.
According to a report coming out of Germany, the Iranians are making efforts to illegally obtain technology to advance the country’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.
“There is no evidence of a complete about-face in Iran’s atomic polices in 2016,” says the report, which also noted that three German citizens are facing criminal charges for violations of the export and delivery of 51 special valves to an Iranian company. The valves can be used to develop plutonium for nuclear weapons. Under the JCPOA deal, Iran pledged to “dismantle” their nuclear weapons facility.”
A second report from a German intelligence agency states: “Regardless of the number of national and international sanctions and embargoes, countries like Iran, Pakistan and North Korea are making efforts to optimize corresponding technology” which would lead to the proliferation of atomic, biological and chemical weapons.
According to the report, Iran is seeking products and scientific know-how for developing weapons of mass destruction as well as missile technology, and they’re using every illegal means possible including cyberwarfare, espionage, and leveraging terrorists.
Iran is also working on the development of ballistic missiles with the help of a Chinese company.
