Obama on Iran deal: This is an opportunity that we can't let slip away

July 15, 2015 20:35

US President Barack Obama spoke Wednesday on the deal signed between world powers and Iran Tuesday to roll back Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Obama said that the deal cuts off all of Iran's pathways to a nuclear weapons program, and without a deal, those pathways would remain open."This deal makes our country and the world safer and more secure," Obama said, adding that "the alternative would endanger our security, that's the choice we face."

"Future generations will judge us harshly if we let this opportunity slip away," Obama added.
