Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Iran’s leader blames U.S. for nuclear deal impasse; Biden vows no bomb for Tehran”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

U.S. President Biden and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said in separate speeches to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday that they want to reach a new nuclear deal, but their remarks underscored how difficult striking an agreement will be.

Mr. Raisi told the United Nations General Assembly that Tehran is “not seeking to build or obtain nuclear weapons,” and accused America of “trampling” the 2015 nuclear deal Mr. Biden has spent the past two years trying to revive with the Islamic republic.

Just hours later, Mr. Biden told the world body that Iran cannot be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon, while underscoring he still hopes to save the tattered multinational deal that was negotiated under President Obama and repudiated three years later by President Trump.

“The United States is clear: We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. Diplomacy is the best way to achieve this outcome,” Mr. Biden said in a speech that focused heavily on the Ukraine-Russia war and other matters.

Mr. Raisi, an Islamist hardliner whom Republican lawmakers sought to block from attending the General Assembly, seized on his moment in the spotlight before world leaders to push the theory that the Islamic State terror group (ISIS) was “created by the United States.”
