US top diplomat warns of Iran 'provocations'

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday slammed Iran's "alarming and ongoing provocations"، announcing a "comprehensive review" of U.S. policy toward the Middle East country.

"Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and is responsible for intensifying multiple conflicts and undermining U.S. interests in countries such as Syria، Yemen، Iraq، and Lebanon، and continuing to support attacks against Israel،" Tillerson said in a damning statement to reporters in Washington D.C.

"An unchecked Iran has the potential to travel the same path as North Korea، and take the world along with it،" he added.

Iran and major powers led by the U.S. made a deal in 2015 to curb Tehran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for easing economic sanctions.

Tillerson's statement came hours after the State Department confirmed that Iran continued to comply with the terms of the deal.

The U.S.'s top diplomat said the agreement "fails to achieve the objective of a non-nuclear Iran"، but stopped short of threatening to terminate the deal or slap more sanctions.
