I. Why it Matters

The Biden administration, unlike its predecessor, sees the JCPOA as a key achievement in line with U.S. national security interests and attributes the increase in Iranian nuclear activity and the rise in regional tensions to President Trump’s 2018 decision to quit the agreement. It has stated its intent to rejoin the deal if Iran resumes full compliance, and to build the foundation for follow-on agreements over Tehran’s regional activities and missile program. But even if the U.S. and Iran are able to resume diplomatic reengagement, the administration will have to contend with vocal domestic opposition as well as deep reservations from regional allies.
