Top nuclear watchdog: "We are flying blind" without Iran deal

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency says that it’s “essential” to have a nuclear deal with Iran because otherwise “we are flying blind.”

Former President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the deal in 2018. We’ve since learned that Iran is enriching uranium at levels that exceed the deal’s limits but technically fall below the 90% considered weapons-grade purity.

Combined with the international community’s reduced visibility in recent months, the stepped-up enrichment levels could spell trouble for the United States.

What does this mean when it comes to foreign relations with Iran and other potentially hostile countries?
