US Vice-President Mike Pence called for Europe to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, and urged allies to back US sanctions.
Speaking at a conference in Poland on Thursday attended by Israel and senior Arab leaders, Pence denounced Iran as the “greatest threat to peace and security in the Middle East” and accused the clerical regime of plotting a “new Holocaust” with its regional ambitions.
He lamented that Britain, France and Germany created a special financial mechanism that Washington believes is aimed at “breaking” tough US sanctions on Iran. Those sanctions were eased by the Obama administration under the terms of the nuclear deal but were re-imposed after President Donald Trump withdrew from the agreement last year.
