While everyone’s wondering about the agenda of President Trump’s talk during the grand event, Nikki Haley US Ambassador to the UN clarified the talking points of President Trump’s talk at the UNGA, while talking to the media on Thursday.
RT @USUN: ”Iran treats Iraq like it’s not an independent nation. Iran sees Iraq as a transit point for weapons and a training ground for its proxies. Iran seeks to keep Iraq economically weak. Why? Because Iran wants to use a weak Iraq to illicitly fund its terrorist activities.” pic.twitter.com/T9kij3PESS

Talking about Iran, the top diplomat said that the country has a presence everywhere termed as dangerous and that it continues to be a problematic country.

The United States will not compromise on the country’s sovereignty and this is something every American wants, said the Indian-American diplomat. The Republican will give a speech on the US Foreign Policy, laying out where the country will go from here, while also focusing on the country’s sovereignty. The countries sharing similar values with America will be taken into confidence and from there, the expansion of bilateral ties will be pondered upon.

Not that the US is against the idea of multilateralism, we cannot allow the platforms and countries to dictate us what to do; she cited the decision to quit Paris Climate Change Accord and Global Migration Compact. She said that mandating things on the States is not going to be an option and President Trump would be talking about it in detail at the event.
“Anytime the US talks about sovereignty, it’s always going to be the will of the American people and not the will of the international community”, she said during the media talk.
