New York, Headquarters of the United Nations— According to what the media obtained during an interview with the National Security Agency’s Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby, the United States border will require “record” investments to ensure that criminal or terrorist elements do not make their way into the country.
Kirby responded, “We are working hard to secure the border by attempting to invest in sophisticated capabilities,” in response to a question about whether or not it would be beneficial for the country to have an open border despite the fact that remnants of ISIS and al Qaeda are still active.
“We still have troops that are down there assisting Border Patrol personnel in an effort to help them so that they can focus on this,” said the spokesperson. “We are trying to assist them so that they can focus on this.” We requested record amounts of money for the Department of Homeland Security, but sadly, there was no support from the Republican party for that.
“So, we’re going to keep at this, and we definitely want to certainly encourage more support coming from the Republican side for some of the things that we’re trying to achieve,” he said.
Kirby’s main worry is not just about the possibility of terrorist attacks but also about other potential dangers. He reaffirmed Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s candid assessment that talks with Iran regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) have gone backward, saying, “It’s unlikely that we’ll be able to address the gaps here in the very near future.
“That’s sad because, just a few weeks ago, we believed we were actually a little bit closer to returning to the contract,” Kirby said. “We just thought we were a little bit closer to returning to the deal.” “Unfortunately, I don’t think we are as close as we thought we were just a few weeks ago,” the speaker said. “It’s been a few weeks now.”
