Israel would be blamed by the international community if Congress succeeds in killing the nuclear deal reached with Iran, US Secretary of State John Kerry warned on Friday.

Kerry made an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, during which he launched an impassioned defense of the agreement while warning of the consequences of a congressional rejection.

"What happens is if the United States Congress unilaterally walks away from this arrangement that we have reached, we go right back to square one where we were with no alternative," Kerry said. "Iran is enriching. We have no inspections. We have no ability to know what they're doing. We don't roll back their program. We're right back where we were and we are going to head to conflict."

"I fear that what could happen is if Congress were to overturn it, our friends in Israel could actually wind up being more isolated and more blamed," the secretary said.
