Iran agrees to framework limiting its ability to build nuclear weapons
Iran is agreeing to limit its ability to build a nuclear weapon. The deal, which still needs to be expanded and finalized, offers Iran a way to have the United States and European Union lift select economic and financial sanctions. President Obama called the agreement “a historic understanding with Iran,” saying he was “convinced” that a finalized deal would make the world safer. “This framework would cut off every pathway that Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon,” Obama said. Final terms of the deal still have to be negotiated, which is scheduled to happen by the end of June.
