Trump urges NATO
He said today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process.
Trump also called on Britain, Germany, France, Russia and China to break off from the international nuclear deal with Iran.
Press TV reported that Trump, a stern critic of the historic deal, unilaterally pulled Washington out of the JCPOA in May 2018.
He had threatened the “toughest ever” sanctions against the Islamic Republic in defiance of global criticism in an attempt to strangle the Iranian oil trade.
The Iranian government announced in a statement on Sunday that the country will no longer observe operational limitations on its nuclear industry, including with regard to the capacity and level of uranium enrichment, the amount of enriched materials as well as research and development.
“As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior,” Trump said in his address.
Trump’s latest threat and baseless accusations against Iran comes despite his own massively provocative and unjustified killing of Iran’s most prominent anti-terror commander.
The US military carried out an airstrike on the direction of Trump at Baghdad’s international airport early on Friday, assassinating Iranian Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, as well as eight other companions.
Early on Wednesday, Iran responded to the assassination of Soleimani, the Middle East’s most prominent anti-terror commander, striking the American airbase of Ain al-Assad in Anbar province in western Iraq and another in Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.
