Pence Repeats Anti-Iran Accusations Pence Repeats Anti-Iran Accusations

US Vice President Mike Pence repeated the Trump administration’s allegations against Iran and the 2015 nuclear deal. Addressing the 53rd session of the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Saturday, the new vice president kept up his boss’s hostile rhetoric, claiming that the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, including the US, has given Iran “additional resources” to “destabilize” the region, Press TV reported. The hawkish Republican also accused Iran of being “the state sponsor of terrorism”. Let me be clear again! Under President Trump, the United States will be fully committed to insuring that Iran never obtains a nuclear weapon capable of threatening our countries, our allies in the region, especially Israel,” the former Indiana governor alleged. The peaceful nature of the nuclear program has been emphasized by Tehran time and again, even before the nuclear accord was clinched with world powers in 2015. Pence’s anti-Iran remarks came days after Donald Trump met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington, where the latter continued the regime’s efforts to rally support for opposing Tehran. The new US administration has been stepping up its anti-Iran rhetoric, criticizing the nuclear accord as a “bad deal” and accusing the Islamic Republic of supporting “terrorism”.
