Washington is ready to re-impose sanctions on Iran in response to any provocation from Tehran, US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In her speech on Sunday, Clinton listed Iran’s “increasingly aggressive regional ambitions,” as a reason for the United States to strengthen ties with Israel.
“Tehran’s fingerprints are on nearly every conflict across the Middle East,” the politician said.
According to Clinton, Iran supports “bad actors from Syria to Lebanon, to Yemen and beyond.”
“There will be consequences, for even small violations [of Iran’s nuclear deal], and we are ready to snap back sanctions into place,” Clinton said.
The West imposed sanctions on Iran amid fears it was developing a nuclear weapon.
Iran signed a nuclear deal with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany on July 14, to ensure the peaceful nature of Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
Iran’s relief from multinational sanctions by the United Nations, the United States and the European Union is subject to the results of an inspection by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
