US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Monday affirmed that as president of the United States he would prevent Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability.

In a major foreign policy speech, titled “The Mantle of Leadership”, in Lexington, Virginia, Romney warned that under President Barack Obama Iran’s nuclear program had advanced to the point whereby the Islamic Republic is now “closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability.”

Moreover, Romney said, as a result of Obama’s Iran policy, Tehran “has never posed a greater danger to our friends, our allies, and to us. And it has never acted less deterred by America, as was made clear last year when Iranian agents plotted to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in our nation’s capital.”

Despite the growing threat posed by the Iranian regime, Romney accused Obama of not supporting the Iranian people against the Mullahs: “When millions of Iranians took to the streets in June of 2009, when they demanded freedom from a cruel regime that threatens the world, when they cried out, ‘Are you with us, or are you with them?’ – the American President was silent.”
