(U.S. Mission to the UN) U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Tuesday: "Today, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threatened that Iran would break its commitments under the JCPOA if the United States chooses to take additional steps to hold Iran accountable for its destabilizing behavior outside of the JCPOA." "Iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage. Iran, under no circumstances, can ever be allowed to have nuclear weapons.

The nuclear deal must not become 'too big to fail'."
