‘Even greater danger’: Iran boasts about breaching set uranium enrichment limits, and Mike Pompeo is not happy
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo put out the following warning to Iran regarding its effort to enrich uranium, saying the rogue regime is expanding its program.
Iran’s latest expansion of its nuclear program will lead to further isolation and sanctions. Nations should restore the longstanding standard of no enrichment for Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s regime, armed with nuclear weapons, would pose an even greater danger to the world.
