Trump has accused Iran of supporting terrorism
The US President announced a new strategy toward Iran, which is controlled by the “regime of fanatics.” Trump has not confirmed that the Islamic Republic has executed a nuclear deal, this creates the possibility for U.S. withdrawal from it.
The President of the United States Donald trump announced on Friday, October 13, on a new comprehensive strategy of Washington against Iran. “Iran is under the control of mode fanatics,” — began his speech at the White house, the President of the United States. This mode of spreading death and chaos through the world, he said. In his speech he recalled the seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979 and the Iranian support for the terrorists. There is also evidence that Tehran transfers technology to the DPRK, said trump.
Among Tehran’s support of terrorist groups trump called “al-Qaeda” and “Taliban” (both a terrorist organization banned in Russia), as well as Hizbullah.
Iran is also organizing cyber attacks against the U.S. and its allies, said trump. “The U.S. is not the only goal of the campaign of the Iranian authorities, they suppress their own citizens,” the President recalled the crackdown of mass protests in the country after the 2009 presidential election.
Iran also supports the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and hostile to Israel, said trump.
After this introduction, the tramp moved on to the assessment of the Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD) — agreement Iran, Germany, France, UK, USA, Russia and China in 2015, which came into effect in January 2016. Tehran, according to AGREEMENT, undertook to limit its nuclear program — to get rid of inventory sredneoblastnogo uranium, to reduce stocks of low enriched 98%, reduce the number of gas centrifuges for the enrichment of radioactive materials, and adhere to other restrictions in the field of nuclear energy. In return for compliance with the requirements of the United States, the European Union and the United Nations have pledged to gradually remove the international economic and financial sanctions, which hit the oil and banking sectors of the economy.
Trump pointed out that Iran had not complied with the terms of this agreement regarding the centrifuges and not allowed a full inspection of its nuclear facilities. Therefore, the behavior of the Islamic Republic does not meet the “spirit of transactions,” concluded trump.
Iran does not respect the deal
Continuing the speech, the US President said that he could not confirm Congress of Iranian compliance with AGREEMENT. Congress requires the U.S. President every 90 days to confirm the implementation by the Republic of liabilities AGREEMENT. Trump has twice reported to the legislators (in April and July) and both times have affirmed compliance with the conditions. Now the legislators have 60 days to make the decision to withdraw from the transaction and the renewal of the sanctions against Tehran.
Trump also instructed the administration to explore the possibility to change the terms of the agreement. If to renegotiate the deal on new terms will be impossible, the US will come out of it. The President in this regard, recalled that the United States may at any time withdraw from the deal in his decision.
In the meantime, the Congress will conduct an assessment of the agreement, the United States will continue to impose sanctions against Iran. Trump has instructed to impose sanctions against the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps — an elite unit of the Iranian army. The US President called the personal unit of the terrorist organization of the Tehran regime.
Trump also promised to impose sanctions against the official government of Iran to “suppress the financing of terrorism.”
The American leader criticized SVPD even during his own election campaign and threatened to break “the worst deal that was ever discussed.” The responsibility for its conclusion, trump put on “myopic” administration of his predecessor Barack Obama. He said that during the past decades, priority of US foreign policy was the fight against “Sunni extremists”, while neglecting the constant expansion of terrorist networks in the region, protected Shiite Iran.
