US Senator: Trump JCPOA choice ‘reckless’

Tehran, May 9, IRNA - Bernie Sanders, the longest-serving US independent Senator has described as reckless US President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon the July 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

“President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is the latest in a series of reckless decisions that move our country closer to conflict,” Sanders wrote on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

“Real American power is not shown by our ability to blow things up, but by our ability to forge international consensus around shared problems. That is what the Iran agreement did,” he said.

The US senator went on to say that “today President Trump put us on a very different, more dangerous path.”

US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran.

This is while most world powers including Russia, China, and European Union have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of world peace and security.
