(Worthy News) - A historic deal with Iran will close off any possibility the country can develop nuclear weapons, halting a potential arms race in the Middle East, President Barack Obama said.

The accord, which will take months to be fully implemented, will stand as one of the chief foreign policy accomplishments of Obama’s two terms. Obama said it builds on a U.S. tradition of negotiating with foes including the former Soviet Union.

"This deal demonstrates that American diplomacy can bring about real and meaningful change, change that makes our country safer and more secure," Obama said Tuesday at the White House. [ Source ]

Obama says deal is chance for 'new direction' in Iran ties

Describing a "difficult history" between Iran and the United States that "cannot be ignored," Obama shaped it as a diplomatic victory that showed "it is possible to change." "This deal offers an opportunity to move in a new direction. We should seize it," he said.

Firmly tethering his presidential legacy to Tuesday's deal, Obama had a further warning to domestic opponents. He said it was "irresponsible" to walk away from the agreement and vowed to veto any effort in the Republican-controlled Congress to block it. [ Source ]
