Iran Foreign Minister Zarif: WH Wrong About Deal, 'We Did Not Agree to Dismantle Anything'Topics: Iran, Political News and commentaries
Iran Foreign Minister Zarif said on CNN that the White House is getting the nuclear deal wrong ... that they've been exagerating, and that they don't have to give up anything:
Via The Weekly Standard:
Said the Iranian foreign minister, "The White House version both underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitment. And I'm not interested in that. I'm simply saying, why don't we all stick to what we agreed? Why do we need to produce different texts?"It appears that there is essentially very little, if anything, that we can believe that comes out of the WH. It's indeed a sad day when one finds themselves trusting the Iranians more than our own government. If the Iranians are lying, Obama can easily prove it by releasing the text of the deal ... which so far he has refused to do.
CNN reporter: "Explain, then, to our viewers, what's different in terms of Iran's commitment to what you agreed to and what the White House says you agreed to?"
The Iranian responded, "Well, the terminology is different. The White House tries to portray it as basically a dismantling of Iran's nuclear program. That is the word they use time and again. And I urge you to read the entire text. If you find a single, a single word that even closely resembles dismantling or could be defined as dismantling in the entire text, then I would take back my comment."
Zarif clarifies, "What Iran has agreed is not to enrich above 5 percent. We did not agree to dismantle anything."
The White House refuses to release the text of the Iran nuclear deal.
