History has shown that the longer we ignore a threat, the more dangerous that threat becomes. For this reason, upon taking office I've ordered a complete strategic review of our policy toward the rogue regime in Iran. The Iranian regime has committed multiple violations of the agreement. There are also many people who believe that Iran is dealing with North Korea.
So today, in recognition of the increasing menace posed by Iran, and after extensive consultations with our allies, I am announcing a new strategy to address the full range of Iran's destructive actions. First, we will work with our allies to counter the regimes destabilizing activity, and support for terrorist proxies in the region.
Second, we will place additional sanctions on the regime to block their financing of terror. Third, we will address the regime's proliferation of missiles and weapons that threatened its neighbors' global trade and freedom of navigation. And finally we will deny the regime all paths to a nuclear weapon
