Statement from Ted Turner on the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement

The 2015
Iran nuclear agreement was a triumph of diplomacy and a victory for global
security at a time when the whole world is threatened by the proliferation of nuclear
weapons that could have catastrophic consequences for humankind and our
precious environment.

Trump’s decision to withdraw from the deal is a major setback for international
cooperation, global peace building and the long-term goal of a world without
nuclear weapons, articulated by leaders from Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama.

As co-founder and co-chair of the Nuclear Threat
Initiative, I am both saddened and angered by this reckless decision. I look
forward to the day when the United States regains its place as a global leader,
providing vision and actions to eliminate nuclear threats.
