Graham vows to back Israel in preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
“The worst possible outcome for the world is to allow the Iranian regime to acquire nuclear capability,” says Graham.
“My hope is to find an alternative to the JCPOA “that will avert “the existential threat to Israel and the world at large,” he adds, referring to the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. US President Joe Biden is currently negotiating to reenter the pact.
