Obama makes historic Nuclear Deal with Iran 

Iran nuclear deal built on verification not on trust: Barack Obama

Hailing the landmark nuclear deal with Iran, US President Barack Obama on Tuesday said the pact ensuring Tehran does not acquire a nuclear bomb was based on verification and not on trust as he warned the Congress that he will veto any legislation aimed at scuttling the agreement.

“After two years of negotiations, the United States, together with our international partners, has achieved something that decades of animosity has not: a comprehensive long-term deal with Iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” Obama told reporters at the White House.

Led by the United States the so-called P5+1 countries –the US, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — reached the landmark agreement with Iran after more than 20 months of intense negotiations, mostly held in Vienna or Geneva.
Obama asserted that this deal has achieved what the US and the international community wanted from day one — to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
For the next 15 years, Iran will not build any nuclear weapons, Obama said at the White House with Vice President Joe Biden standing by his side.
