Iran grants access to IAEA to inspect the “suspected” nuclear sites
Libya– A dangerous news emerged from the G20 in Rome: During the summit, Erdogan officially stated, and in no uncertain terms, that Ankara refuses to withdraw its troops from Libya. A declaration that came to mind, the UN is committed to organizing and carrying out the withdrawal of all foreign troops present in the country, an indispensable precondition for the celebration of the elections that should sanction their pacification.
With its stance, Turkey throws fuel on the fire and threatens to bring the conflict between the factions competing for power in Libya back to very high levels, endangering the electoral process. A situation that would have severe and dangerous repercussions for Italy and the whole European Union. Libya is expected to hold the long-awaited presidential and parliamentary elections on December 24.
The hope is to end the long period of anarchy and civil war in which the country fell with the end of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, possibly safeguarding the unity of the Libyan territory. However, making the situation more complicated is the high number of mercenary and foreign forces present in the field. For this reason, the road map conceived by the United Nations provides above all the evacuation of foreign armed groups, to be defined through a ‘5 + 5’ negotiation format, which sees all the warring factions present at the table, under the aegis of the UN.
On October 8, the activities are believed to have been used for processing and converting the uranium ore in 2003. This second site too is said to have underwent major changes in 2004. There were also building demolitions to have been carried out.
In 2015, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran Deal or Iran Nuclear Deal was signed between Iran and P5+1 – the five permanent members of United Nations Security Council, China, France, Russia, United States, United Kingdom, plus Germany – along with European Union. The agreement on Iranian nuclear program was signed in Vienna.
The deal was to put a regulation on Iran’s growing nuclear activity. In 2018 United States withdrew from JCPOA after which the US sanctions on Iran were nullified. In 2020 when Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was killed in Baghdad Airport Airstrike, Iran declared that it would no longer follow and abide by the deal limitations but would coordinate with IAEA.
