Trita Parsi on the Trump administration’s failed snapback effort

On DW News, Quincy Institute VP Trita Parsi discusses the fallout from the Trump administrations failed attempt to snapback sanctions on Iran through the U.N. Security Council.

Despite the administration’s unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA in 2018, administration officials attempted to use the “snapback” provisions of the JCPOA to restore U.N. sanctions on Iran, which was roundly rejected by both U.S. allies and adversaries on the Security Council.

Parsi also discusses the IAEA’s agreement with Iran granting it inspection access to two nuclear sites.
