Top energy officials from the U.S. and Iran clashed on Monday with warnings that international peace is at risk as America’s sanctions noose tightens on the Islamic Republic.

The showdown took place at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, where hundreds of diplomats gathered for the nuclear watchdog’s annual meeting. IAEA inspectors are charged with monitoring the landmark nuclear accord between Iran and world powers that U.S. President Donald Trump abandoned in May.
