Mulley: Biden ready to take military action to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons
WASHINGTON, November 30 – RIA Novosti. US President Joe Biden is ready to resort to military intervention as a last resort to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons. declaration US Special Envoy to Iran Robert Mulley during a discussion hosted by Foreign Policy.
“The President said he would accept a military scenario as a last resort if it would help prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. But the time has not yet come.”
As a senior diplomat noted, the American leadership, meanwhile, prefers diplomacy as the best way to resolve the issue of Iran’s possible acquisition of nuclear weapons.
Rafael Grossi, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has previously expressed hope for a technical meeting with Iranian representatives to resolve open issues. However, on November 17, the IAEA Board of Governors adopted a resolution stating Tehran’s obligation to cooperate with the agency in an investigation into the detection of traces of uranium in three undeclared sites. Russia’s permanent representative of the organization, Mikhail Ulyanov, told RIA Novosti that the 20-year-old issue on the discovery of uranium particles in Iran has gained inappropriate value in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (COEP) negotiations.
Iranian media reported that, in response to the IAEA decision, Tehran has started enriching uranium up to 60 percent at the Fordow nuclear facility, creating new IR2M and IR4 centrifuge steps at the nuclear facilities in Netanza and Fordow, and launching new centrifuges there.
