Sara A Carter: Even though the coronavirus pandemic has taken a heavy toll on Iran, the Islamic Republic’s government has continued to ramp up its nuclear capabilities, rather than focus on the immediate needs of Iranians.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Wednesday that he was giving the Iranian government 60 days to wind down its nuclear operations.
“I am ending the sanctions waiver for JCPOA-related projects in Iran, effective in 60 days,” Sec. Pompeo revealed Wednesday. “Iran’s continued nuclear escalation makes clear this cooperation must end. Further attempts at nuclear extortion will only bring greater pressure on the regime.” more
