Blinken: Biden Working To Lift Sanctions on Iran, Despite Iran Funding Terror

Secretary of State Antony Blinken told George Stephanopoulos on ABC News that despite proof that Iran is engaged in destabilizing actions throughout the Middle East, the Biden administration thinks that the best way to engage and contain Iran is to bring it back to JCPOA agreement.

“You know, George, Iran is engaged in a number of activities including funding extremist groups, supporting terrorism more broadly, supporting very dangerous proxies that are taking destabilizing actions throughout the Middle East, proliferating weapons,” said Blinken during his interview on “This Week” on Sunday.

“An Iran with a nuclear weapon or with the capability to build one in very short order is going to act with even greater impunity in those areas, which just adds to the urgency of trying to put the nuclear problem back in the box that the nuclear box put it in, and of course, many of these actions are going forward now while they, you know, have gone forward over the last few years under the so-called maximum pressure being exerted by the — by the previous administration and clearly did not get the result we all seek which is to curb all these activities, but the first thing we need to do is put the nuclear problem back in the box and see if Iran will come back into compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). That’s what we’re engaged in, and use that as a platform to build on and deal with these other issues.”
