Obama hails Iran nuclear agreement progress, prisoner release
(CNN) — President Barack Obama said Sunday engaging with Iran has created a unique opportunity.
“Engaging directly with the Iranian government on a sustained basis, for the first time in decades, has created a unique opportunity, a window, to resolve important issues,” Obama said, praising Saturday’s release of American prisoners by Iran, as well as implementation of the Iran nuclear deal.
He said yesterday marked a “milestone” in making sure Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.
“We’ve now closed off every single path Iran had to building a (nuclear) bomb,” he said. “We’ll know if Iran ever tries to break out.”
