Tillerson calls for more limits on Iran's nuclear program

News ID: 4092508 -
TEHRAN, Sep. 20 (MNA) –The Iran nuclear deal must be changed if the United States is to remain in it, the top US diplomat said, suggesting its key limits on the Iranian nuclear program must be extended.

Making his debut appearance at the annual United Nations General Assembly, US President Donald Trump accused Iran of exporting “violence, bloodshed and chaos” and of seeking to project its influence in Yemen, Syria and elsewhere in the region.

His chief diplomat, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, went further, telling Fox News that the agreement must be changed or the United States could not stick with it.

Tillerson said the “sunset” clauses, under which some of the deal’s restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program expire from 2025, were of particular concern, reported Reuters.

“If we’re going to stick with the Iran deal there has to be changes made to it. The sunset provisions simply is not a sensible way forward,” he said.
