President Obama on Monday marked the one-year anniversary of the Iran nuclear deal’s implementation, saying the challenges the U.S. faces today would be much worse without it.
Obama said in a statement that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) “has achieved significant, concrete results in making the United States and the world a safer place.”
Obama stressed that Iran’s nuclear program “faces strict limitations and is subject to the most intrusive inspection and verification program ever negotiated to monitor a nuclear program.”
He added that Iran has reduced its uranium stockpile by 98 percent, has removed two-thirds of its centrifuges, has not enriched any uranium at the Fordow facility and has not used advanced centrifuges to enrich.
“In short, Iran is upholding its commitments, demonstrating the success of diplomacy.”
