Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations slammed the US government for the lack of commitment to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).
Addressing the United Nations Disarmament Commission in New York on April 2, Gholam Ali Khoshroo denounced the US government for failing to honor its NPT commitments.
“The statement by a certain nuclear-weapon State that it wants more nuclear weapons to remain at the ‘top of the pack’ indicates that such extremely irresponsible policies will continue,” the Iranian envoy deplored.
In February 2017, US President Donald Trump expressed a desire for America to be an unparalleled military power, saying he wants to build up the US nuclear arsenal to make it “top of the pack.”
