US President Donald Trump on Wednesday repeated his country’s threat to ratchet up sanctions on Tehran and again denounced the 2015 nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers.
Trump’s tweet came as the UN nuclear watchdog held an emergency meeting to discuss Iran’s nuclear programme.
“Iran has long been secretly ‘enriching,’ in total violation of the terrible 150 Billion Dollar deal made by John Kerry and the Obama Administration. Remember, that deal was to expire in a short number of years. Sanctions will soon be increased, substantially!” Trump tweeted without elaborating or offering evidence.
Iran responded to the US president’s allegations, saying “we have nothing to hide”.
