Landmark agreement reached on Iran's nuclear program
WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama says every path to a nuclear weapon will be cut off for Iran under a historic agreement announced in Vienna.
Obama spoke from the White House Tuesday morning after the deal was announced.
Addressing skeptics of the agreement, Obama said, "This deal is not built on trust. It is built on verification."
He says the nuclear agreement with Iran ensures that Iran "will not develop a nuclear weapon."
He says Iran's compliance will be verified by inspections.
Secretary of State John Kerry says the Iran deal he spent the last 19 days negotiating in Vienna is "the good deal that we sought." Throughout nearly two years of talks, U.S. officials have said that "no deal is better than a bad deal."
