USA: The Iran deal is a 'good deal for the world' - Kerry

United States, Washington D.C.
July 28, 2015 at 20:27 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Secretary of State John Kerry described the Iran nuclear deal agreed in Vienna as a "good deal for the world" during a House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee in Washington D.C., Tuesday. Kerry was questioned by several members of the House on the Iran deal alongside US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and US Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew.

Discussing the deal, Kerry said that "the outcome here is critical" and stated that it was "a good deal for the world, a good deal for America, a good deal for our allies and friends".

Answering concerns about Israel's safety in the region, Kerry said he understood the "concerns our friends in Israel have" but made clear that he was "absolutely convinced beyond any doubt that this deal makes Israel safer, and the region and the world."

Discussing the implications of not agreeing to the deal, the US secretary of state stated that "if we walk away from this deal and then we decide to use military force, we're not going to have the United Nations or the other five nations who negotiated with us because they will feel we walked away." He also suggested that any attempts at renegotiating the agreement would be foolish, saying "the alternative to the deal we have reached is not some kind of 'unicorn fantasy'".
