The United States is reportedly considering offering the Islamic Republic a new, “interim” agreement that would lift some sanctions on the regime in exchange for Tehran freezing parts of its nuclear program. Though Israeli officials familiar with the matter told Axios that regime officials “have so far rejected the idea,” this development suggests the Biden administration still fails to acknowledge that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is dead and that a shift to a new policy on Iran, focused on providing maximum support to the Iranian people, is necessary.
