US to accuse Iran of violating chemical weapons treaty


The Trump administration is poised to accuse Iran of violating an international treaty that bans chemical weapons, two US officials said on November 16.

The officials said the administration plans to announce next week that Iran is not complying with the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention, which outlaws the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons.
