Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 24
By Rahim Zamanov - Trend:
The U.S. President Barack Obama said that the deal reach in Geneva is an important first step toward comprehensive solution to Iran's nuclear program.
He said that now is not the time for U.S. to impose new sanctions on Iran, adding that no new sanctions would be imposed on Iran for 6 months if the deal is honored.
Obama also warned that new sanctions could 'derail' Iran deal.
The US president further said that the country wants to resolve Iran nuclear dispute peacefully rather than engage in a rush to conflict.
According to Obama, Iran cannot use its next-generation centrifuges under nuclear deal.
He said that the burden is on Iran to prove that its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes.
