Biden Vows To Keep IRGC On Terror List

According to US President Joe Biden on Israeli television on Wednesday, using military force to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons was not out of the question “if that were the last choice.”

The president will not, however, confirm whether he had any contact with Israeli authorities over potential military measures.

In an interview with N12, Biden stated that he was also determined to retaining the Iranian Revolutionary Guard on the US list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, even if that meant that the nuclear agreement between Iran and the international community would be nullified.

Following years of disagreements between the partners regarding international diplomacy with Tehran, Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid will join forces on Thursday to sign a joint declaration that Iran would not obtain nuclear weapons.

Such subliminal warnings against Iran—which denies seeking nuclear weapons—have been made by the United States and Israel independently for years. Formally, expressing the discourse may increase mutual action commitment and deterrent.

“I think what you’ll see in the joint declaration is a pledge and a commitment never to allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon and that we’re prepared to use all elements of our national power to ensure that outcome,” one US official said.

On Wednesday, Biden began a trip through the region that will take him to Saudi Arabia for the GCC summit.

Biden responded, “The only thing worse than the Iran that exists now is an Iran with nuclear weapons,” when asked why his administration was so anxious to revive the deal, which the majority of US friends in the area oppose.

Biden claimed that as a result of the deal’s cancellation, Iran was now more dangerous and blamed his predecessor, Donald Trump.

“They are closer to a nuclear weapon now than they were before,” Biden said.

Because to Iran’s risky actions in the Middle East, Trump withdrew the US from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which Iran and the P5+1 group of nations (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Germany) agreed in 2015. The majority of US allies in the area supported the previous president’s action.

In exchange for Tehran, allowing nuclear activity inspections, the agreement provided Iran reprieve from sanctions.
