US President Donald Trump urged the international community to isolate Iran on Tuesday, during a combative address before the United Nations General Assembly, in which he accused the Tehran regime of sowing “death and destruction,” LA Times reported.
Trump used his second address to the UN General Assembly to blast Iran’s leaders for sowing “havoc and slaughter” in Syria and Yemen. He urged leaders to join an economic pressure campaign against Iran “to deny the regime the funds it needs to advance its bloody agenda.”
“Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction,” Trump said. “They do not respect their neighbors, their borders or the sovereign rights of nations.”
Trump hopes that a campaign of “maximum pressure,” including new sanctions and other measures, will force Iran to come to the bargaining table, just as global sanctions helped bring it into the 2015 nuclear deal that Trump abandoned.
