(Worthy News)-- U.S. President Barack Obama told Israeli television that the emerging deal between Iran and world powers is the only way to prevent Tehran from obtaining nuclear weapons, and that "a military solution will not fix it," the Times of Israel reported.
In a preview aired Monday on Channel 2 of an interview with veteran journalist Ilana Dayan, Obama said that military action against Iran would not deter its nuclear ambitions and that he could prove that a "verifiable" agreement with Iran was the best way forward.
"I can, I think, demonstrate, not based on any hope but on facts and evidence and analysis, that the best way to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon is a verifiable, tough agreement," he said.
"A military solution will not fix it. Even if the United States participates, it would temporarily slow down an Iranian nuclear program but it will not eliminate it," Obama added. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/obama-a-deal-only-way-stop-iran-no-military-option/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
