Sputnik News– US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said during testimony before a US House of Representatives committee on Tuesday that she has not seen any violations by Iran of the Joint Plan of Comprehensive Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — However, Haley noted that making the agreement with Iran only delayed what will happen eventually, saying “They’re going to continue their nuclear capabilities and we just gave them a lot of money to do it with.”
“In reference to the JCPOA, we’re not seeing any sort of violations of that,” Haley stated.
The 2015 nuclear agreement, signed between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries — the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany — stipulates the gradual lifting of the economic and diplomatic sanctions imposed on Iran in exchange the peaceful nature of the country’s nuclear program.
In May, the administration of US President Donald Trump has decided to stick with the nuclear deal reached with Iran by his predecessor Barack Obama and extended the sanctions waiver.
Trump has repeatedly slammed the Iranian nuclear deal and calling it disastrous for Israel.
