One of the first international challenges facing incoming US President Joe Biden will be tackling a brewing nuclear crisis with Iran. In recent weeks, Tehran has increased its uranium enrichment to the critical 20 per cent threshold, far in excess of the level allowed by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 nuclear agreement that US President Donald Trump abandoned in May 2018. Iran has also said it will conduct research into producing uranium metal, necessary for making nuclear warheads. Europeans and the US will have to quickly revive the JCPOA if they want put a brake on Iran’s nuclear programme and dampen tensions in the Middle East.
