North Korean Foreign Minister: 'The United States Declared War'

  • North Korean Foreign Minister: 'The United States Declared War'

In fact, Iran fired two long-range nuclear-capable missiles in March of the following year which specifically defied an existing U.N. Security Council resolution 2231. During a meeting of the foreign ministers of Iran and the six signatories to the nuclear deal, hosted by the European Union's foreign-policy chief, Federica Mogherini, the tone was clearly and bluntly against the Trump administration and in favour of the continuation of the agreement with Iran.

There has been speculation, particularly from Iran critics in Washington, that the Khoramshahr was based on North Korea's intermediate-range Musudan missile.

But Iran is working hard to test the limits of America's patience. German Ambassador Peter Wittig said anyone advocating walking away should consider "larger issues", including an increased danger Iran would resume enrichment, danger of a nuclear arms race in an unstable region and impact on global nonproliferation efforts. He spoke about scrapping the nuclear deal during the election campaign and has mentioned it on several occasions since.

"By the nuclear deal, Trump has lost the possibility for aggression, violation and assault (against Iran) and in such atmosphere, he feels obliged to destroy all world and worldwide pillars", Qassemi said.

"The ballistic missile which Iran fired is a provocation of the United States and its allies, including Israel", the Israeli defense minister said. However, the USA could impose new sanctions that make it risky or impossible for companies to do business with Iran, by declaring that they can't do business in both Iran and the United States.

After Trump's address, Rouhani said many reporters, officials and European heads of state said explicitly that they opposed the USA president's remarks. "Not much of an agreement we have!" he added.

Iran said on Saturday it had successfully tested a new ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km and would keep developing its arsenal, despite western pressures to stop.

"I think the outcome of this one way or the other will be Trump would try to subvert the deal or undermine it", Lendman argued.

The US went against the tide and was "the most isolated country at the United Nations over the nuclear agreement, which has been certified by the United Nations", he added.

French Ambassador Gerard Araud noted that the other countries that signed the pact - Russia, China and Iran - had made clear that they do not support renegotiating.

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu's speech was so complimentary to the US President and corresponded so well with the US policy position on Iran that The Guardian's Peter Beaumont, reporting from the United Nations, commented sarcastically that the US President's speech "... could have been written by the Israeli embassy"!

Three months later, there was the speech senior officials "reviewed and vetted" for the United Nations, which adopted a more measured tone, and then there was the speech Trump delivered, which included juvenile references to "Rocket Man".
