President of the United States, Donald Trump, has stated that Iran will never be allowed to have nuclear weapons as long as he is President.
The President has said his administration won’t respond militarily to Iran following the Islamic Republic’s missile attacks on US airbases Tuesday night, though he revealed that he won’t allow the country to own nuclear weapons.
On Tuesday night, Tehran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at the Ayn al Asad airbase and Erbil base in Iraq housing American troops in a revenge attack for the US drone strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on Friday.
Trump in the White House press conference said he will impose more economics sanctions on Iran, asked Europe to get behind his maximum pressure campaign on Iran, asked NATO to get more involved with Middle East peace and said that the US military had new hypersonic weapons to use if needed.
Iran will never have a nuclear weapon as long as I’m president’‘Good morning ladies and gentlemen. No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime.’
“Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned,” he added.
”We will be imposing additional financial and economic sanctions on Iran, which would remain until Iran changes its behaviour”.
“Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism,”
‘We must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place,”
