Iran won’t produce highly enriched uranium, plutonium, Obama says
After reaching an agreement with P5 +1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany), Iran won't produce highly enriched uranium and plutonium needed for creating nuclear weapon, the US President Barack Obama said.
The agreements signed with Iran deprive the country of all the opportunities to create a nuclear weapon, Obama said while speaking at the White House, RIA Novosti reported.
Any way to the nuclear weapon is closed for Iran, he said.
The deal is based not on trust, but verification, said the US president.
Barack Obama added that he will use the right to veto if the Congress attempts to hinder the successful implementation of the agreements with Iran.
In accordance with the compromise earlier reached between the US administration and Congress, the latter got 60 days to revise the deal with Iran.
Obama said that the Congress will be able to study the agreements with Iran in details.
The talks held in Vienna July 14 between Iran and P5 +1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) ended with adoption of a joint comprehensive action plan. If Iran carries out this plan, the economic and financial sanctions earlier imposed on it by the UN Security Council, the US and EU will be lifted.
The talks between the two sides started over 10 years ago. After the adoption of an interim joint action plan in Geneva in November 2013, the discussions between Iran and P5+1 have been held in Vienna, Montreux, Lausanne and Geneva in many rounds since February 2014. The final negotiation round has lasted in Austria's capital for over 18 days.
