Iran deal opens chance to stop spread of nuclear weapons in Middle East: Obama

New Jersey, July 14: President Barack Obama has said that the nuclear deal with Iran opens a chance to stop the spread of nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

According to a CNBC report, President Obama also said that he would use his veto power if the U.S. Congress moved to block it.

Obama also said that the deal helps them in moving in a new direction, adding that the world will only join them in this deal in sanctioning Iran until the country “completely dismantles its nuclear program”.

Obama claimed that the global community will be able to verify, through this deal, that Iran does not develop a nuclear bomb.

If Iran violated the deal, then all sanctions will snap back into place, he said, adding that the option of using military force would always be available to him and to future presidents of the United States should Tehran renege and acquire a nuclear weapon. (ANI)
