Erdogan slams Trump’s exit from Iran nuclear deal
Tehran (KNA) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed the US President Donald Trump administration for unilaterally withdrawing from the multi-nation Iran nuclear deal.
“As Turkey, we do not accept re-igniting issues, including the Iran nuclear deal, that have been put to bed. We find the other signatories stating their loyalty to the agreement in the face of the US administration’s decision very positive,” Erdogan said during an iftar (fast-breaking dinner) for the holy month of Ramadan on Monday.
He also slammed countries that have nuclear weapons for “threatening the world.”
“If we are to be fair, to show a just approach, then the countries with nuclear weapons, which portray nuclear power stations as threats, have no credibility in the international community,” he said, apparently referring to the US and the Israeli regime, which possess nuclear weapons but insist that Iran not have access to even civilian nuclear technology.
