Iran WARNS The U.S. NOT To Cross ‘Red Line’
Obama apologized yet?
Borrowing from President Barack Obama’s own rhetoric, Iranian leaders have warned the U.S. not to cross its own red line regarding Tehran’s ballistic missile program.
Brig. Gen. Massoud Jazzayeri, deputy chief of staff of the Iranian military, claimed the Obama administration has been intentionally prolonging the removal of sanctions as outlined by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly referred to as the Iran nuclear deal. He believes that the U.S. is trying to connect the terms of JCPOA with Iran’s ballistic missile program.
“The White House should know that defense capacities and missile power, specially at the present juncture where plots and threats are galore, is among the Iranian nation’s red lines and a backup for the country’s national security and we don’t allow anyone to violate it,” said Jazzayeri, as reported by Iranian media outlet and government mouthpiece Fars news.
