    Iran Nuclear Deal

    President Obama on Iran nuclear agreement: 'It is a good deal'

    By Colin Campbell, Hunter Walker and Armin Rosen1 hour ago


    (AP/Susan Walsh)President Barack Obama speaks in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, Thursday, April 2, 2015, about the breakthrough in the Iranian nuclear talks. President Barack Obama just gave a speech reacting to the framework for a nuclear deal with Iran that was reached by negotiators on Thursday."Today, after many months of tough, principled diplomacy, we have achieved the framework for that deal. And it is a good deal," Obama said.



    Obama delivered his statement from the Rose Garden where he described it as an "historic" agreement. He said he is "convinced" that, if the framework leads to a final agreement, "it will make our country, our allies, and our world safer."
    "This has been a long time coming. The Islamic Republic of Iran has been advancing its nuclear program for decades," Obama said.
    Here are key highlights from the president's remarks:

    • He said Iran has "eliminated its stockpile of dangerous nuclear material."
    • Obama said the deal was the "best option" to address concerns about Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon because the country had agreed to a "robust and intrusive inspections and transparency regime" that ensured it would not be able to produce a weapon covertly.
    • According to the president, the agreement outlined in the framework "shuts down Iran's path to a bomb using enriched uranium" because Iran will not be permitted to enrich uranium for ten years.
    • Obama noted the deal would include sanctions relief for Iran. However, he specified some US sanctions would not be lifted and said "sanctions can be snapped back into place" if Iran violates any agreement.
    • The negotiations have been criticized by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama acknowledged this and stressed the US staunchly supports Israeli security and will work to address its concerns.
    • Some members of Congress have also criticized the deal and there have been proposals for lawmakers to review any agreement. Obama described it as an "international agreement" that satisfied many key allies and warned the US would be "blamed" if it is killed. He also said he will give Congress "oversight" over the agreement.

    Obama, who described the framework simply as a "good deal," alluded to critics who have been skeptical of the negotiations when he said they "succeeded exactly as intended."
    "Iran has met all of its obligations," Obama said.

    Establishing a framework for further negotiation is a good start, but it isn't a finish. I hope that a comprehensive agreement can be reached that will become a starting point for normalizing Iranian relations with the rest of the civilized world.

    I applaud the effort but its liable to open a can of worms. Will Saudi now try to go the nuke route? Netanyahu has already come out against it, how does US/Israeli relations continue? I think most of the people in Iran like this and deserve it, but it will depend on their govt to uphold their end.

    That never seems to work very well. Besides, there are numerous threads here on any given day that are duplicitous in nature.

    A framework is not a deal.

    They failed.

    Iran Accuses U.S. of Lying About New Nuke Agreement

    Just hours after the announcement of what the United States characterized as a historic agreement with Iran over its nuclear program, the country’s leading negotiator lashed out at the Obama administration for lying about the details of a tentative framework.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused the Obama administration of misleading the American people and Congress in a fact sheet it released following the culmination of negotiations with the Islamic Republic.

    Zarif bragged in an earlier press conference with reporters that the United States had tentatively agreed to let it continue the enrichment of uranium, the key component in a nuclear bomb, as well as key nuclear research.

    Thanks you for appealing to a greater mind than Barack Obama.

    Keep the sanctions and economically destroy them by ramping up oil and natural gas productions to levels where only the Saudi's could survive it.
