The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Nikki Haley said that Iran under no circumstances should be allowed to have nuclear weapons. About it reports Reuters.
According to the diplomat, the nuclear deal with Tehran “should not become so important that its collapse would have disastrous consequences.” In addition, Hayley added that the Islamic Republic should be held responsible for “their missile launches, support of terrorism, violation of human rights and the resolutions of the UN Security Council”.
The words of the US Ambassador to the UN were a response to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who on 15 August said that the Islamic Republic could withdraw from the agreement on its nuclear program if the U.S. restrictive measures against him will be extended. “The failure of sanctions and containment has led them (us) of the previous administration to the negotiating table, — said the Iranian leader. If they want to return to this practice, definitely in a short time — not weeks or months, but in the scale of hours and days — we will return to our former situation.”
Iran and the six international mediators (US, Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany) in mid-July 2015 reached agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program and signed a Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD). The Islamic Republic pledged to restrict work in the field of uranium enrichment in exchange for lifting some sanctions.
