REPORT LAUNCH: "The Iran Deal a Year On: Assessing Iranian Ambitions"
On the anniversary of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the so-called 'nuclear deal' with Iran, a new publication by The Friends of Israel Initiative and The Henry Jackson Society lay bare the failure of the P5+1 strategy to normalise Iran's international relations.

Despite the lofty promises and high hopes on the part of the deal’s supporters, a year after the nuclear deal, far from being better, the resulting situation is worse. Worse for international security, worse for nuclear non-proliferation, worse for regional stability, and above all worse for the people of Iran themselves. Iran has not become a regular nation-state in the international community, has breached the JCPOA and associated agreements, and has neither changed its course in the region nor made any significant steps towards easing repression domestically.
