Nikki Haley Accuses Iran of 'Holding the World Hostage' With Nuclear Deal

16 Août 2017

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in an address to lawmakers earlier in the day that Tehran could leave the nuclear deal "in hours", if the United States continues expanding sanctions.

Many in the Trump Administration are openly hostile toward the nuclear deal, and Haley suggested Iran was using the existence of the deal as a pretext for "support for terrorism, disregard for human rights, and violations of UN Security Council resolutions". "The nuclear deal must not become "too big to fail", Haley said in a statement, adding that new US sanctions were unrelated to the Iran nuclear deal.

He added the new "rulers" of the United States should know that the "failed experience of sanctions" brought their previous administrations to the negotiating table.

She plans to visit the United Nations nuclear agency in Vienna next week.

He explained that despite agreeing on several issues with Sarraj, the latter never committed to the deal. Both officials reiterated that all mediation efforts in Libya should be carried out via the UN.

The U.S. Treasury imposed sanctions on six Iranian firms in late July for their role in the development of a ballistic missile program after Tehran launched a rocket capable of putting a satellite into orbit.

The U.S. State Department recently certified that Tehran had met the terms of the nuclear deal.

The deal lifted nuclear-related sanctions against Iran in exchange for the country allowing inspections of its nuclear sites and reductions in its stocks of low-enriched uranium. The new USA administration notified Congress of Iran's compliance for the first time in April.

Haley added that "Iran, under no circumstances, can ever be allowed to have nuclear weapons".
