Nikki Haley: US 'not looking to do regime change anywhere'
Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that despite increased tension with Iran, the United States was not seeking regime change there or anywhere else.
“The United States is not looking to do regime change in Iran,” Haley said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’re not looking to do regime change anywhere.”
Haley’s comments came as rhetoric between the two nations has grown increasingly heated, and as the Trump administration has made overt focus on Iran a cornerstone of its foreign policy, including President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement and to reimpose sanctions on its economy.
Trump is due to chair a UN Security Council meeting in the coming days.
