Following a historic deal to limit Iran’s nuclear program, President Obama delivered remarks on the deal, calling it an “important first step towards a comprehensive solution.” He made it clear the U.S. was drawing a line in the sand, saying, “In these negotiations, nothing will be agreed to unless everything is agreed to.”
Obama said that after years of Iran being unwilling to “meet its obligations to the international community,” the election of President Hassan Rouhani provided a new “opening for diplomacy” that allowed for this round of negotiations.
The president went through some details of the agreement, including that Iran cannot pursue next-generation centrifuges nor create new ones, saying the U.S. will provide “modest relief” while still keeping economic sanctions in place.
