TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Israel wags US President Donald Trump tail in dealings with Iran, American political analyst Dennis Etler says, adding that US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley’s claims against Iran fly in the face of reality.
“The US under Trump is embroiled in aggressive actions throughout the world to maintain its imperial rule. It has initiated a trade war with China, engaged in sanctioning Russia, threatening the DPRK (North Korea), and supports Israel against the Palestinians and the Saudis in Yemen. It has boots on the ground in Afghanistan and Syria, ostensibly to combat terrorists. Now it is once again threatening to abrogate the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran, commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, and reimpose sanctions,” said Etler who has a decades-long interest in international affairs.
“Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, in a lecture at Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina, intimated that the US was ready and willing to withdraw from the JCPOA because Iran supports terrorism and is violating the terms of the 2015 agreement. This assertion flies in the face of reality.
Iran has been in the forefront combating Takfiri terrorism and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed Iran's commitment to the terms of the nuclear agreement,” he told Press TV on Saturday.
