U.S. President-elect Joe Biden has stated that if Iran gets a nuclear bomb, it would put “enormous pressure” on Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt, and others to get nuclear weapons as well.
“And the last goddamn thing we need in that part of the world is a buildup of nuclear capability,” Biden announced to the New York Times on Dec. 2
Biden views, Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon is a straight national security threat to the USA and to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
“Look, there’s a lot of talk about precision missiles and all range of other things that are destabilizing the region,”
“the best way to achieve getting some stability in the region” is to deal “with the nuclear program,” Biden said in its interview.
“In consultation with our allies and partners, we’re going to engage in negotiations and follow-on agreements to tighten and lengthen Iran’s nuclear constraints, as well as address the missile program.”
The U.S. always has the option to snap back sanctions if need be, and Iran knows that he added.
