(ReliableNews.org) – Iran appears to be escalating its efforts to become a nuclear superpower. Iranian state TV reported Tehran asked a UN watchdog group to omit “unnecessary” details regarding its nuclear program efforts during a January 17 broadcast. Additionally, Iran recently confirmed it was producing enriched uranium.
Despite these acts of aggression, Breitbart News reported over the weekend that former Vice President Joe Biden’s team has begun secret talks with Iran about the US returning to the 2015 Iran Nuclear deal.

The Times of Israel reported on those efforts on January 16, adding that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is already working to assemble a team to develop a strategy for working to thwart Iran’s nuclear program with the aid of the Biden administration.
As former CIA station chief Scott Uehlinger noted, team Biden could end up stirring up a hornets’ nest in the Middle East if those efforts were to be successful.
President Trump enacted harsh sanctions on Iran, cutting off the flow of money paying for its nuclear program by bringing its oil exports down to zero. It appears Biden is bound and determined to reverse progress achieved by those efforts.
