House Speaker John A. Boehner said Sunday an interim deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program should be met with “healthy skepticism and hard questions,” making it clear he thinks negotiations have just begun.
“Iran has a history of obfuscation that demands verification of its activities and places the burden on the regime to prove it is upholding its obligations in good faith while a final deal is pursued,” Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, said.
The U.S. government and its allies want to dismantle Iran’s uranium and plutonium enrichment programs, he said, but they need to work “equally hard” to keep tough sanctions on Iran in place until that goal is achieved.
“Otherwise, we will look back on the interim deal as a remarkably clever Iranian move to dismantle the international sanctions regime while maintaining its infrastructure and material to pursue a breakout nuclear capability,” he said.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, was less kind in his assessment of the deal announced Saturday by the Obama administration.
