Trump's tough talk will only make us weaker

Trump's tough talk will only make us weaker

During the Military Parade, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told that Tehran is dedicated to moving forward through the strengthening of its military defenses and missile capabilities, as reported by the Press TV.

Donald Trump has accused Iran of working with with North Korea.

Donald Trump is critical of the 2015 agreement between the USA and other world powers to limit Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Donald Trump has long vowed to tear up the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), pledging such a move even before he was elected as president.

He said that the United States was the most isolated country at the United Nations over its stance on Iran's nuclear accord, citing President Donald Trump's attack on the agreement while other world leaders defended it.

The ramifications of Donald Trump's very direct speech to the United Nations have continued to heighten tensions around the world.

But tensions between the two arch-foes, Tehran and Washington, have reached new heights since January, when Trump replaced Barack Obama, one of the deal's main architects.

This comes after President Trump criticized the nuclear deal with Iran, saying it's bad for America and needs to be renegotiated.

Mark Fitzpatrick, executive director of the Institute for Internal Strategic Studies-Americas, sad that Iran has a missile, that can reach can reach Israel. Common sense leads most people to think that, if the JCPOA is the only obstacle to Iran becoming nuclear-armed, it would be folly to allow the nuclear restrictions to lapse between 2025 and 2031 as the agreement envisages.

"You are seeing images of the successful test of the Khorramshahr ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km, the latest missile of our country", state television said.

Actually, it's Trump and his bombastic public statements that are an embarrassment to the United States.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi also said the tension on the Korean peninsula underlined the importance of the Iranian deal, and that China would continue to support and safeguard it, Chinese state media said.

Rohani said Iran will not be the first party in the nuclear accord to violate the agreement.

Trump must decide by October 15 whether to certify that Iran is complying with the pact, a decision that could sink the deal. But the extended sanctions was important because, if the nuclear-related sanctions are imposed again then Iran will break the deal and start enhancing its Uranium content rapidly.
