“What we’re looking at and what we want to remind the public of is why we are at this point now,” Psaki said. “Most importantly, none of the things we are looking at now – Iran’s increased capacity and capacity, their aggressive actions that they have taken through proxy wars around the world – would happen if the former president did not ruthlessly had withdrawn from the nuclear power plant. deal without thinking about what might come next. “

In 2018, Trump announced that he would pull the United States out of the nuclear deal with Iran, saying at the time that the deal was “defective at its core.”

Psaki said Trump’s decision left an “impact”, meaning that Iran’s nuclear program “was no longer in a box, no longer had the most robust inspection regime ever negotiated, no longer had the strict restrictions on nuclear activity.”

At one point during the “ongoing” negotiations, Psaki said, the Biden administration became a little frustrated by the lack of seriousness with which the negotiators came to the table. “Now we’re back at the table again,” she said.

“Because of the last administration that withdrew from the nuclear deal, now Iran’s program is rapidly accelerating, Iran directly attacked our partners in the Gulf, and its allies began attacking US troops again in Iraq,” Psaki said. “The United States had become totally isolated internationally.”

Below 2015 nuclear agreement affected by the United States under the Obama administration, world powers, and Iran, sanctions against Tehran were lifted in return for Iran’s cooperation to curb its nuclear program.

“At the heart of the Iran deal was a gigantic fiction that a murderous regime only wanted a peaceful nuclear energy program,” Trump said in 2018. “Today, we have conclusive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.”
