Supporting UK Actions Countering Iran’s Hostile Activities
We welcome the announcement today by the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary of plans to create a new sanctions authority to hold Iran accountable for its hostile activities. We will continue to stand with the UK and the international community in our shared commitment to counter Iran’s destabilizing actions, its proliferation of weapons, its brutal repression at home, and its threats and plotting against individuals around the world. We once again condemn Iran’s plots against U.S. citizens and citizens of other countries, and we reiterate our resolve to work with the UK and other allies and partners to deter and respond to any threats or attacks carried out by Iran. Iran’s hostile activities contrast starkly with the United States’ broader efforts to seek de-escalation and our vision for a more integrated, prosperous Middle East region.
