Verification, not trust behind nuclear deal – Obama

The deal with Iran is based on verification mechanism and not trust, US President Barack Obama said speaking from the White House after the Vienna talks’ success, in an apparent deflection of criticisms his administration faces over the agreement.

He insisted the action plan agreed in Vienna on Tuesday leaves no way for Tehran to make a nuclear weapon and stops nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.

“I believe it would be irresponsible to walk away from this deal,” Obama said. “I am confident that this deal will meet the national security interests of the United States and our allies.”
