Earlier this week, United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson harshly criticized Iran’s policy and the final agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. According to political analyst Dmitry Solonnikov, such criticism is a sign of Washington’s support for its allies in the region.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) does not achieve its goal of keeping Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, Tillerson told reporters on Wednesday.

“The JCPOA fails to achieve the objective of non-nuclear Iran. It only delays their goal of becoming a nuclear state,” the State Secretary said.

Tillerson added that the JCPOA ignored all other serious threats from Iran.

He also accused Tehran of sponsoring terrorism, cyberattacks and human rights violations.

“Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and is responsible for intensifying multiple conflicts and undermining US interests in countries such as Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Lebanon, and continuing to support attacks against Israel,” Tillerson said.
