CSUSB professor discusses continuing developments in Iran nuclear deal with European Union
Jan. 8, 2019
David Yaghoubian, CSUSB professor of history, was interviewed for a segment on the “SPV,” or the Special Purpose Vehicle, which the European Union is trying to implement to salvage the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, in the aftermath of U.S. President Trump pulling the country out of the agreement.
The SPV, which was to have taken effect in August, is meant to bypass U.S. trade and financial sanctions on Iran as the European Union works to keep the agreement intact to ensure Iran would not develop its nuclear program for military purposes
“I think the primary reason for the failure thus far for the EU to actually get the SPV operating and functioning as it was designed is primarily due to the fact that the EU does not enjoy financial autonomy,” Yaghoubian said.
The JCPOA was reached in Vienna on July 14, 2015, between Iran, the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States—plus Germany), and the European Union. The U.S., under the Trump Administration, withdrew from the JCPOA in May.
