Iran experts: Khamenei will back out of nuclear deal after a year

Some Iran expert in Washington believe that the nuclear deal signed in Vienna Tuesday will fall at its first hurdle in a year’s time. They predict that supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will terminate the accord on the pretext that the US and the West are in violation of their obligations. Khamenei hinted at this Friday when he said in his Eid el-Fitr speech that he was “not certain that the agreement would be ratified.” This pattern of behavior would follow a precedent: Tehran repudiated the commitments it undertook In 2003 and 2004 to abstain from enriching uranium.
