US steps up campaign against Iran


Arab Times - - FRONT PAGE -

WASH­ING­TON, Sept 10, (AP): Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s ad­min­is­tra­tion is step­ping up its campaign to get other na­tions to boost pres­sure on Iran as world lead­ers pre­pare to meet at the United Na­tions this month.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion says the world should take note of and act on ad­mit­ted Ira­nian non­com­pli­ance with the 2015 nu­clear deal and new ques­tions about Iran’s ac­tiv­i­ties raised by the UN atomic watch­dog. The US has been ratch­et­ing up its own sanctions on Iran since Trump with­drew from the nu­clear deal last year.

Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo (pahm-PAY’-oh) said Tues­day that Iran is try­ing to de­ceive the world by refusing to fully co­op­er­ate with the In­ter­na­tional Atomic En­ergy Agency. The agency’s head said Mon­day he’d stressed the im­por­tance of “full” co­op­er­a­tion with it.

Iran says it has be­gun us­ing advanced cen­trifuges in vi­o­la­tion of the 2015 nu­clear deal.
