(Persia Digest) – Ex-Obama advisor has called Trump a big liar by saying the IAEA and Trump’s own military and intelligence community all confirmed Iran’s compliance to the 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal.
Ben Rhodes tweeted: “This is a just a total lie. The IAEA, Trump’s own intelligence community and military leaders all confirmed Iranian compliance. A foreign policy based on lies will not win international support or address reality.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that US President Donald Trump had earlier posted this tweet, accusing Iran: “Iran has long been secretly “enriching,” in total violation of the terrible deal.”
The IAEA, however, has of today confirmed Iran’s compliance fifteen times. But the US unilaterally withdrew from the deal on 8 May 2018 and reinstated harsh sanctions on Iran. Other signatories to the deal, including the EU, took no practical steps to counter the US violation of the deal. After fourteen months of patience, Iran finally had to diminish its obligations under the nuclear agreement.
