United States will stay in international nuclear deal with Iran

Vastavam web: The United States for the time being will stay in an international nuclear deal with Iran, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Sunday, adding that the Trump administration wanted to weigh a “proportionate” response to Tehran’s actions on the world stage.Haley said the reason the United States was looking closely at the Iran nuclear deal is because of escalating tensions over North Korea’s nuclear weapons development. “What we’re saying now with Iran is don’t let it become the next North Korea.”

The U.S. Congress now has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose economic sanctions on Tehran that were lifted under the deal.Haley, also interviewed on ABC’s ”This Week,“ said of Iran: ”We have to hold them accountable. They can’t be continuing to support terrorism around the world like we are seeing they do. They can’t continue to test ballistic missiles, which will lead to a nuclear Iran.
