Former Secretary of State John Kerry used an appearance in Oslo this week to tout the nuclear deal he helped to negotiate with Iran, arguing that it helped avoid conflict at a time when some leaders in the region had been urging the U.S. to “bomb” Iran.
“We were hurtling toward conflict. I mean, there’s just no other way to describe it,” he told reporters in the Norwegian capital. “Leaders in the region were saying to me personally, and to the president, President Obama, ‘You should bomb these guys – that’s the only way to resolve this issue.’”
Instead, Kerry said, “we chose a different path” – one that the Iranians too had to decide they would follow.
“What we did is to find a mutually acceptable way to guarantee that both sides were able to agree on a path forward that met both sides’ needs.”
