PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: This deal provides the best possible defense against Iran's ability to pursue a nuclear weapon covertly. That is in secret. International inspectors will have unprecedented access not only to Iranian nuclear facilities but to the entire supply chain that supports Iran's nuclear program. From uranium mills that provide the raw materials to the centrifuge production and storage facilities that support the program.
If Iran cheats, the world will know it. If we see something suspicious, we will inspect it. Iran's past efforts to weaponize its program will be addressed. With this deal, Iran will face more inspections than any other country in the world. So this will be a long-term deal that addresses each path to a potential Iranian nuclear bomb.
