Trump again blasts Iran nu­clear deal

The Hitavada - - WORLD -

PRES­I­DENT Don­ald Trump again dis­missed the Iran nu­clear ac­cord as “ter­ri­ble” for Amer­ica, as he pre­pares to an­nounce a key de­ci­sion on whether to cer­tify Iran’s com­pli­ance with it.

“This is the worst deal. We got noth­ing,” Trump told Fox News, in ref­er­ence to the 2015 ac­cord ne­go­ti­ated with Iran by the United States and five other world pow­ers.

It gave Iran sanc­tions re­lief in ex­change for curbs on its nu­clear pro­gram in a bid to pre­vent it from de­vel­op­ing nu­clear weapons.

“We did it out of weak­ness when, ac­tu­ally, we have great strength,” said Trump. “We will see what hap­pens pretty soon,” said Trump, who must an­nounce his de­ci­sion on whether to cer­tify Iran’s com­pli­ance by the end of the week.
