A major purpose of Iran wanting to enlarge its footprint in Syria may be to hide aspects of its nuclear program from the International Atomic Energy Agency, former top IDF Military Intelligence official Yossi Kuperwasser said on Wednesday.
Speaking at a Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs conference on the Iran nuclear situation, JCPA fellow Kuperwasser, a former IDF brigadier-general, noted that IAEA inspectors are limited to inspecting Irans territory, as the Iran nuclear deal did not grant IAEA inspectors complete access to Iranian scientists.
Based on that limited access, Kuperwasser said Iran could move and conceal its nuclear scientists and various nuclear activities in Syria.
He noted that Iran holding on tight to the deal, even though the US has already left it, shows that Iran knows it got a good deal; that a better deal could have been negotiated; and that Iran may lean toward compromising so as not to lose the deal.
