US President Donald Trump has used his second address to the United Nations General Assembly to attack Iran, promising hard-hitting sanctions and urging the world to isolate the Islamic Republic.
Trump used a large portion of his address to the 73rd session of the General Assembly on Tuesday ranting against Iran, accusing it of sponsoring terrorism and sowing “chaos, death and destruction,” in the Middle East.
While Trump was making these accusations, several members in the audience laughed.
“We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues,” he continued. “They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations.”
He condemned “the horrible 2015 nuclear deal” between Iran and six world powers and called on other countries to completely isolate the Islamic Republic.
The US president said more sanctions will follow after the resumption of oil sanctions on Iran on November 5.
