Two years after President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the erroneous “nuclear deal” with Iran, it is clear that the head of state made the right decision then. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo stated in a statement.
According to Pompeo, today ” the American people are safer, and the Middle East is calmer than if the United States remained a party to the Joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPOA)” – a political agreement between Iran and leading world powers that gave Tehran the right to conduct peaceful nuclear activities.
Since the US withdrawal from the JCPOA, “we have imposed the strictest sanctions in history and prevented Iran from financing and supplying terrorists with billions of dollars,” Pompeo said in a statement.
The Secretary of state recalled that 75 years ago, the United States joined with its allies “to rid the world of the Nazis and their hateful ideology. Today we face a serious challenge to the world we call again on the international community to join us in thwarting the world’s leading state sponsor of anti-Semitism.”
Pompeo stressed that the US “will use all diplomatic means to ensure the extension of the UN arms embargo.” The United States, he said, “will never allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.”
