HAVANA, Cuba, Oct 5 (ACN) Iranian television Press TV highlighted the speech delivered by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, who warned of serious repercussions due to the withdrawal of the United States from commitments related to the nuclear weapons sector.
The Cuban FM criticized the abandonment by Washington of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or nuclear agreement and the Treaty of Intermediate and Shorter-Range Missiles with Russia.
In the opinion of the head of Cuban diplomacy, the US withdrawal will have serious consequences for international stability and security.

There are about 13,400 nuclear weapons, of which almost 1,800 are operational and another 3,270 deployed, more than half of them belonging to the United States, he denounced.
