The US will consider using military force against Iran if diplomacy to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program does not help. This was stated by the United States Special Representative for Iran Robert Malley.

“There are other tools – sanctions pressure,” he said. At the same time, if they do not work, then as a last resort, US President Joe Biden would consider a military option, Mulley emphasized. About this on Monday, October 31, informs TASS.

He noted that such a development of the scenario is possible in order to prevent the appearance of a nuclear warhead in Iran. However, diplomacy towards Tehran is the preferred way. In this way, the Iranian nuclear problem can be solved, Malli pointed out. At the same time, as the US Special Representative for Iran noted, over the past two months there has been no progress on the issue of restoring the JCPOA.

Earlier, the White House reported that the US presidential administration does not seek to the resumption of negotiations with Iran on the restoration of the JCPOA. At the same time, according to the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Washington sent several signals to Tehran, which confirm the determination to achieve the restoration of the nuclear deal.

JCPOA is an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. It was concluded in 2015. The document was signed by the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain, France, Germany and Iran. In exchange for the lifting of sanctions, Tehran pledged to limit its nuclear activities. The United States withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018.
