The Russian foreign minister says the United States chose to pull out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with an eye to “a total confrontation with Iran.” Addressing the annual Primakov Readings conference in Moscow on Wednesday, Sergei Lavrov enumerated some of the reasons behind the aggravating problem of weapons of mass destruction in today’s world, criticizing US actions and the moves by Donald Trump as contributing factors. “I remember the apocalyptic predictions of the 1980s about a ‘nuclear winter,’” he said. “Fortunately, it did not come to pass, although the ‘Arab Spring’ came, which, through a series of tragic events, also exacerbated the problem of weapons of mass destruction, Sputnik reported. “I am referring to the withdrawal of the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program with the view of organizing a total confrontation with Iran, and many staged situations involving the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government aimed at changing the regime in Damascus,” he added.
