Leading Scientists Urge Trump to Honour Iran Nuclear Deal

By John Lee.

Thirty-seven leading scientists, including Nobel laureates, have urged US President-elect Donald Trump not to dismantle the Iran nuclear deal, calling it a strong bulwark against any Iranian bid to make nuclear arms.

In an open letter sent to Trump on Monday, they said the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has resulted in the deactivation of machinery used to enrich nuclear material, the export of 95 percent of Iran’s low-enriched uranium, and the ability for nuclear inspectors to monitor enrichment facilities daily.

The letter was organized by Richard Garwin, a physicist and science adviser to the U.S. government who helped design the hydrogen bomb, according to The New York Times.
