PEACE IN OUR TIME

Statement by President Obama on First Step Agreement on Iran’s Nuclear Program

white-house-logo

That international unity is on display today. The world is united in support of our determination to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. Iran must know that security and prosperity will never come through the pursuit of nuclear weapons — it must be reached through fully verifiable agreements that make Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons impossible.

As we go forward, the resolve of the United States will remain firm, as will our commitments to our friends and allies –- particularly Israel and our Gulf partners, who have good reason to be skeptical about Iran’s intentions.

Ultimately, only diplomacy can bring about a durable solution to the challenge posed by Iran’s nuclear program. As President and Commander-in-Chief, I will do what is necessary to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. But I have a profound responsibility to try to resolve our differences peacefully, rather than rush towards conflict. Today, we have a real opportunity to achieve a comprehensive, peaceful settlement, and I believe we must test it.

The first step that we’ve taken today marks the most significant and tangible progress that we’ve made with Iran since I took office. And now we must use the months ahead to pursue a lasting and comprehensive settlement that would resolve an issue that has threatened our security — and the security of our allies — for decades. It won’t be easy, and huge challenges remain ahead. But through strong and principled diplomacy, the United States of America will do our part on behalf of a world of greater peace, security, and cooperation among nations.

Thank you very much.

  5. Apolos Landa says:

    There is not greatest blindness than that of those that do not want to see, Mr President. Iran should first show clear signs of halting its path towards nukes and its rethoric towards its use in exterminion before any relief in the sanctions. What you led the other five nations to do is colluding altogether with a new holocaust attempt.

  6. Jay Sprueill says:

    If Netanyahu was a bible believing person he would know that Israel can bomb IRAN and GOD will have thier back. END OF STORY

  7. It is hard to belive Obama, he is a big lier, now the US Coongress has to enforce the sanctions to Iran, the worst is that Netanyahu has believed Obama, he is to naive, now negotiations with Iran, it would be the same Israel with the Palestinians, is crazy.

  8. It is hard to believe Obama, he is a big lier, negotiations with Iran in the next 6 months, this we heard the same with Israel and Palestinians, oi vey! the US Congress has to increase the sanctions to Iran.

  9. USA is putting itself in a problem. The day Almighty God answers to Israel's cry. U.S. will look for Israel and it will no longer be there.
