Rand Paul Backs Tillerson In Trump Administration's Internal Iran Deal Dispute

Rand Paul Backs Tillerson In Trump Administration's Internal Iran Deal Dispute

On Wednesday, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani warned that his country will "respond decisively" to any violation of the agreement that reins in its nuclear program and called Trump's "ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric" about Iran unfit for the United Nations.

President Trump said he had reached a decision, but offered no clues as to when he would announce whether the USA will recertify Iran.

"The deal is fundamentally flawed".

Trump used part of his landmark first speech at the body's general assembly to berate a 2015 nuclear deal agreed with Iran, referring to it as an "embarrassment" to the US.

He also called Kim Jong Un's threat more risky now, due to his advancing nuclear weapons program.

"Why should we discuss an addendum?", he asked.

Tillerson argued that the agreement implied that it would lead to a more stable Middle East and criticised Iran for propping up the "horrible" regime of Syria's Bashar al-Assad and carrying out missile tests.

Iran has developed in recent years a large ballistic program that worries the United States but also saudi Arabia, its main rival in the region, european countries, including France, as well as Israel, its sworn enemy.




Iran will strengthen its missile capabilities and not seek any country┬┤s permission, President Hassan Rouhani said on Friday rejecting demands from US President Donald Trump.

"Now we will all try to convince the Americans in the remaining weeks... that calling the agreement into question will not increase security", Gabriel told reporters in NY. "I have decided. I'll let you know what the decision is", he said.

But Trump has been a staunch critic of the deal, claiming it makes the U.S. look weak on the global stage.

Tillerson told reporters Trump did not wish to leave the Iran nuclear issue to the next president.

For Iranian people, President Trump's speech was encouraging, as he talked about change in the country.

On Sept. 18, Trump blasted the JCPOA during a speech before the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Iran has repeatedly emphasized that at no point did they have ambitions to develop nuclear weapons, and only wished to use the technology for peaceful purposes.

Gabriel said Germany would have to consider whether to stick to the agreement even if Washington backed out, but said that could prove "very difficult", given that the United States would immediately impose new sanctions against Iran.
