Speaking with a common voice, the nuclear powerhouses have created a possible new starting point from which they can reconfigure their relationships, enhance global strategic stability and avoid war.

Both the United States and Iran want the other to make the first move. But even if the Biden administration were to lift sanctions tomorrow, international investors will not return to the Iranian market quickly. They fear a new Republican administration in the U.S. will scuttle the program again.

China and the United States should cooperate to remove the fundamental causes of failure — lack of trust, differing definitions of denuclearization, timetables and peace mechanisms — while accounting for the DPRK’s wariness of the so-called Libya model.

The United States and other nuclear powers are part of the problem. But they can also be part of the solution. The existing nuclear order isn’t perfect, but no country can afford to let it fall apart. Now is the time to act.

If the United States is serious, it can begin by trying to establish basic trust through the removal of some sanctions. It can also push off to the future its demand to consider other issues beyond the JCPOA, which only complicate matters at this stage.

AUKUS partnership’s nuclear submarine deal destabilizes the Indo-Pacific region and serves no one’s interest — least of all France, which was stabbed in the back. Will the vessels ever be delivered as promised? Washington couldn’t care less. It’s all about money and American jobs.

A fundamental shift in thinking is needed under which inspections become an interactive, two-way process. The accusatory hunt for a presumed cheater that has been used in the past needs to change. What's needed is a process that builds trust and provides incentives for cooperation.

Japan seems developed and orderly, but that’s only its outward appearance. In truth, it is a vassal of the United States, which has adopted chaos as standard diplomatic theory. Now Japan wants to discharge radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear accident into the sea. Who will say no?

In engaging with North Korea, the Biden administration must avoid the “strategic patience” employed during the Obama years. China may be in the prime position to mediate between Pyongyang and Washington.
