Arms experts warn of 'Faustian bargain' with Iran

Stephen Rademaker, an advisor for the Bipartisan Policy Center, testifies about Iran's nuclear compliance during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, June 10, 2014Arms experts Wednesday voiced concern about an emerging nuclear accord with Iran, with one labelling it a “Faustian deal” amid calls for America to push for a tough inspections regime. “At a fundamental level what the deal … signifies is acceptance by the international community of Iran as a nuclear weapons threshold state,” he told the House foreign affairs committee, only days after lawmakers reached a deal with the Obama administration to have a say on the final accord. Iran and global powers on Wednesday resumed difficult talks in Vienna to finalize the deal by June 30 aimed at putting a nuclear weapon out of Tehran’s reach by dramatically scaling back, but not dismantling, its atomic program. If a ground-breaking deal is reached, the US administration says it will make the region and the world safer, ensuring that the Islamic Republic would need a year to acquire enough fissile material to make a nuclear bomb.
