At the start of his final week in the White House, Barack Obama issued a warning to the incoming Trump administration about the value of the nuclear deal with Iran.
The Trump interviews: what he said about Brexit, Putin, Israel, Syria … and Twitter
“The United States must remember that this agreement was the result of years of work,” read a statement released by the White House on Monday, which did not mention the new president by name.
The deal, the statement said, “represents an agreement between the world’s major powers – not simply the United States and Iran.”
The White House said the agreement, implemented one year ago on Monday, “must be measured against the alternatives – a diplomatic resolution that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon is far preferable to an unconstrained Iranian nuclear program or another war in the Middle East.”
