In contrast, in late August, a group of 900 rabbis signed an open letter from Kalman Topp and yonah Bookstein asking Congress to reject the agreement. [257] The Orthodox Union and the American Jewish Committee also announced their opposition to the agreement. [258] [259] By declaring that he would not confirm the agreement, Trump left it to Congress to reintroduce sanctions against Iran and «inflate» the agreement. But Trump`s accomplices have tried to enact rules on how the United States could «impose sanctions» and Trump has listed three points that could provide such a «trigger» for The deal`s exit: Iran`s intercontinental missile, Iran`s refusal to «extend the limitation of the agreement to its nuclear activities» and «proof that Iran could make a bomb in less than 12 months.» Trump called the deal «one of the worst and most unilateral deals ever made by the United States.» [394] Carter stated that the agreement had prevented Iran from «maintaining a nuclear weapon in a complete and verifiable manner.» [277] He assured the Committee that the agreement would not reduce the ability of the United States to respond with military force if necessary. [282] To a question from McCain, Carter replied that he had «no reason to foreshadow» that the agreement would continue to change Iran`s threatening behavior: «That is why it is important that Iran does not have a nuclear weapon.» [278] [283] Dempsey offered what he called a «pragmatic» vision. [276] He neither praised nor criticized the agreement, but testified that the agreement reduced the chances of a short-term military conflict between the United States and Iran. [276] Dempsey stated that the agreement was aimed at deterring Iran from developing nuclear weapons, but did not respond to other concerns about Iran`s malicious activities in the region, ranging from ballistic missile technology to the arms trade to… malicious activities in cyberspace.» [284] He stated, «Ultimately, Iranian time and behavior will determine whether the nuclear agreement is effective and sustainable» and said he would continue to provide military options to the president. [284] Senator Joni Ernst disagrees with Obama`s statement that the election is the nuclear deal with Iran or war. When Dempsey testified that the United States had «a number of options» that he had presented to Obama, Ernst said, «It is imperative that everyone on the board understands that there are other options.» [285] U.S.

experts estimated at the time that it would take two to three months for Iran to have enough 90% enriched uranium to build a nuclear weapon called «breaking time.» «This would be a step in the right direction that, for now, would avoid a full arms race,» Kimball said, adding that it would give Washington and Moscow more time to continue talks on a new agreement to reduce their nuclear arsenals. Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah welcomed the framework agreement between the 5-1 group and Iran over its nuclear program and called it a «historic agreement.» He called on all parties to reach a final agreement by the June 30 deadline. [40] Several NPT parties have renounced nuclear weapons or nuclear weapons programs. South Africa undertook a nuclear weapons programme, but in the meantime abandoned it and joined the treaty in 1991 after destroying its small nuclear arsenal; Subsequently, other African countries signed the treaty. The former Soviet republics in which nuclear weapons were deployed, namely Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan, transferred these weapons to Russia and joined the nuclear non-proliferation programme in 1994 after the signing of the Budapest Memorandum on Security Guarantees.
