CND Slams Trump's Iran Deal Decision
WASHINGTON - Kate Hudson, CND general secretary, said:
"Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Iran nuclear deal is a dangerous and irresponsible move, rightly condemned by the international community.
"The groundbreaking 2015 deal achieved its central aim: Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons programme. Only a president hellbent on making the world a more dangerous place would consider such a belligerent and counterproductive move. It will be seen as a step towards war and sends a threatening message to the world.
"The announcement may also shake peace talks taking place on the Korean peninsula. What faith can leaders now place in US involvement in peace deals when they see such a clear example of a US president not fulfilling his country’s agreed obligations?"
