UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — US Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that President Donald Trump will ask Europeans to withdraw from a nuclear agreement with Iran.
“The president will ask our allies in the coming days to join the United States in withdrawing from the disastrous nuclear agreement,” Pence said in an interview with Fox News.
“The president will demand that Iran give up its long history of spreading terrorist violence, give up its nuclear ambitions, and join the family of nations,” he added.
In May 2018, Washington withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, signed in 2015, between Iran and the 5 + 1 group, which includes Russia, Britain, China, the United States, France and Germany, and imposed economic sanctions on Tehran.
The agreement provides for Tehran’s commitment to abandon, for a period of no less than 10 years, vital parts of its nuclear program, and to restrict it significantly, with the aim of preventing it from acquiring the ability to develop nuclear weapons, in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.
