Sullivan: We must ensure Iran never gets nuclear weapon

United States National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Tuesday that Washington is determined to ensure Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon and that "diplomacy is the best way" to achieve this goal.

Asked about the activity of Iran's proxies in the Middle East, Sullivan stated that former US President Donald Trump's decision to leave the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) didn't stop them from moving forward in Yemen, Iraq and Syria and insisted a return to the deal would not stop Washington from dealing with those proxies.

The official insisted that it would be easier for the US to tackle the issue if Iran returned to the deal because Iran would be a "greater menace" in its partnership with the proxies if it had a nuclear weapon than if it didn't.
