It could be meaningless. Iran’s announced deal with the IAEA on Wednesday only gets rid of one of its many blatant violations of nuclear inspectors’ access and does not provide obligatory answers to unresolved questions or stop its continued hovering around the weaponized uranium threshold. But it does build a case that Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi can be handled and blinks like other Iranian leaders and human beings when faced with stark choices.

For months and even within 24 hours before Raisi and Iran gave in on restoring IAEA camera-monitoring of nuclear facilities, the Islamic Republic maintained that it would not move an inch. Until it did.

The author of this article is spinning things. Iran didn't blink, they simply pretended to agree to the deal, while they continue to argue about not turning on the cameras monitoring compliance to the deal.

They are buying time, not "blinking".
