Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has argued that those countries with nuclear weapons calling nuclear power plants a threat do not trust the world community.
Speaking at an Iftar dinner for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on Monday, Erdogan specifically focused on the issue of nuclear proliferation.
“Those who have more than 15,000 nuclear warheads are currently threatening the world,” he pointed out.
According to him, “the countries with nuclear weapons, that portray nuclear power stations as threats, have no credibility in the international community.”
Touching upon Iran nuclear deal, officialy known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Erdogan said Ankara does not “accept re-igniting issues” and that the deal has been “put to bed.”
“We find the other signatories stating their loyalty to the agreement in the face of the US administration’s decision very positive,” he underscored.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, earlier this week warned that the “sting of sanctions” will not ease until Iran changes its course, saying that the new sanctions against Tehran will be the “strongest in history.”
