Trump: Iran is playing with fire


In response to Iran’s decision to exceed the uranium enrichment limit allowed under the nuclear deal, President Trump told the reporters at the White House: “Iran is playing with fire.”

On Monday, the White House released a statement repeating the United States’ position that the U.S and its allies will never allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.

In a part of the statement, the White House says it was a fundamental mistake to allow Iran to enrich any level of uranium. The statement goes on to say that even before the implementation of the JCPOA there were doubts that Iran would violate the deal.

The White House has emphasized the continuation of the “maximum pressure” policy to stop Iran’s “destructive behavior”.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also tweeted on Monday: “Iran's regime has taken new steps to advance its nuclear ambitions. Once again, the regime uses its nuclear program to extort the international community and threaten regional security. The world’s top sponsor of terrorism can never be allowed to enrich uranium at any level.”
