Trump promises action on Iran; Haley calls for UN crackdown on Hizballah

During a speech in Ohio on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump vowed Iran will face major consequences if it does not comply with its nuclear agreement with Western powers. "If that deal doesn’t conform to what it’s supposed to conform to, it's going to be big, big problems for them," the president said. Rather than being appreciative, Iran has "become emboldened. That won’t take place much longer," he said.
Meanwhile, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley called on the Security Council to enforce UN resolutions regularly violated by Hizballah, saying the dangers from the Iranian proxy "are getting larger, not smaller". She urged the council to recognize that Hizballah is "a destructive terrorist force" that is "dedicated to the destruction of Israel".
