Wendy Sherman: Interim Agreement Froze Iran's Nukes


The six-month interim agreement that was reached with Iran was "not perfect" but it bought time to try to secure a comprehensive deal, a top U.S. official said on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

"We see this as a first step so we don't consider the gaps that exist loopholes because this is not a final agreement," the lead U.S. negotiator with Iran, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman, told lawmakers.

"This is not perfect but this does freeze and roll back their program in significant ways and give us time on the clock to in fact negotiate that comprehensive agreement," Sherman told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
