Bolton claims Trump admin’s pressure campaign against Iran is working
U.S. national security adviser John Bolton has claimed that the Trump administration’s pressure campaign against Iran is working.
“I am here to tell you today President Trump's pressure campaign against Iran is working,” Bolton said at the Christians United for Israel conference in Washington on Monday, Tehran Times reports.
Bolton who is notoriously famous for his anti-Iran remarks again accused Iran of seeking to build nuclear weapons.
“We will continue to increase the pressure on the Iranian regime until it abandons its nuclear weapons program and ends its violent activities across the Middle East, including conducting and supporting terrorism around the world,” he said, according to Reuters.
However, Bolton and others who make similar claims don’t say that if Iran is actually seeking to build nuclear arms why has it signed the NPT and agreed to the most robust inspection regime by the UN nuclear watchdog.
