The U.S President Donald Trump has announced to scrap the Iran deal after nearly three years of signing Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
In his speech, full of inflammatory language against Iran, Donald Trump said “at the heart of the deal was a giant fiction that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy program,” without providing any evidence.
The U.S. President accused the Iranian regime of leading state sponsor of terror in the world.
Donald Trump said: “Iran and its proxies have bombed American embassies and military installations, murdered hundreds of American servicemembers, and kidnapped, imprisoned, and tortured American citizens.”
Donald Trump said although the JCPOA was supposed to ensure security for the U.S. and stop Iran from achieving nuclear weapons, “in fact, the deal allowed Iran to continue enriching uranium and, over time, reach the brink of a nuclear breakout.”
He demanded that Iran lied in terms of its promises. “Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.”
He referred to Israeli allegations that Iranian regime and its allies were pursuing weapons “long concealed by Iran.”
Blaming the JCPOA of having ‘a giant fiction’, Trump said “even if Iran fully complies, the regime can still be on the verge of a nuclear breakout in just a short period of time. The deal’s sunset provisions are totally unacceptable.”
President Trump added: “it is clear to me that we cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement.”
Donald Trump, defying the urges of the allies, announced: “I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”
Donald Trump warned, “We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction. Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.”
