All Hail Nikki

U.N. ambassador speaks truth about Iran, Russia


It's an irony, but sometimes speaking the truth is remarkable.

Especially at the United Nations, where untruths are the common discourse.

Enter Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She told the world body on Thursday that one country -- Russia -- was trying to shield its ally, Iran, from thorough inspections of its nuclear sites. Haley says this is all part of the Iran nuclear deal, signed by world powers in 2015, but Russia and Iran insist it's not. Here's Nikki:

“If the Iran nuclear deal is to have any meaning, the parties must have a common understanding of its terms. Iranian officials have already said they will refuse to allow inspections at military sites, even though the IAEA‎ says there must be no distinction between military and non-military sites. Now it appears that some countries are attempting to shield Iran from even more inspections. Without inspections, the Iran deal is an empty promise.”

In other words, Iran is lying and Russia is helping them. Let's see if her words alone are enough to change things.
