Transcript for Iran officials issue new warning amid US tensions
Now to the escalating confrontation with Iran. This morning officials there issuing a new warning as secretary of state Mike Pompeo says the U.S. Has, quote, unmistakable evidence Iran is responsible for the recent attacks on two oil tankers. Martha Raddatz has more on all this in Washington. Reporter: Good morning. A very troubling announcement from Tehran this morning that means this standoff with the U.S. Could get much worse. A spokesman for Iran's atomic agency saying just a short time ago that in the next ten days, Iran will break the uranium stockpile limit that was set by that 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. This is a first. The trump administration had already withdrawn from the deal but Iran has stayed within the limits and, of course, president trump has warned that the U.S. Will not allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon. Again, you can't emphasize enough about the secretary of state saying unmistakable evidence is what he said about the attack on those oil tankers. Reporter: We have all seen that video that the U.S. Says shows members of Iran's revolutionary guard trying to remove a mine from the side of that tanker but secretary Pompeo spent much of the weekend to convince some allies the evidence was solid. Germany says they need more evidence as has Japan but Pompeo is saying we're considering a full range of responses with some members of congress calling for military strike, robin. Full range, all right, Martha, thank you.
