It is just the beginning of an effort to tackle the nuclear threat.”

In addition, he said, “We will demand greater transparency in provocative and dangerous weapons development programs, and will continue to work to reduce China‘s nuclear weapons threat.”
Secretary Blincoln repeatedly expressed his willingness to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue.
“The United States is committed to ensuring that Iran never acquires nuclear weapons,” he said. “Diplomacy is the best way to achieve this goal.”
“President Joe Biden said that if Iran again strictly adheres to the nuclear agreement (JCPOA, Comprehensive Joint Action Plan), the United States is ready to take the same action,” he said.
“We will seek to extend and strengthen the JCPOA in cooperation with our allies and partners,” Blincoln said. “We will also address other areas of concern, including Iran’s regional instability and the development and proliferation of ballistic missiles.”
At the same time, he urged, “Iran must comply with the agreement on safeguards and international obligations with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).”
