The United States enacted economic sanctions on Iran and successfully led the worldwide community to adopt additional restrictions with the goal of bringing Iran to the negotiating table and halting nuclear weapon development.
He also said the Iranian nation continues to “officially declare” it will not end support for Hezbollah, the Shiite Lebanese terror group which consistently attacks Israel interests in the region.
