Kerry: ‘Scientists Praised’ the Iran Deal ‘for Its Creative Approach to Verification’
“Two months ago in Vienna, the United States and five other nations, including permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, reached agreement with Iran on ensuring the peaceful nature of that country's nuclear program.
As early as next week, Congress will begin voting on whether to support that plan. And the outcome will matter as much as any foreign policy decision in recent history. Like senator Lugar, president Obama and I are convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that the framework that we have put forward will get the job done.
And in that assessment, we have excellent company. Last month 29 of our nation's top nuclear physicists and Nobel prize winners, scientists, from one end of the country to the other, congratulated the president for what they called a technically sound, stringent and P though straight difference deal that will provide the necessary assurance that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons.
The scientists praised the agreement for its creative approach to verification and for the rigorous safe guards that will prevent Iran there obtaining the fissile material for a bomb.”
