John Kerry: U.S. Will Not Hurry Nuclear Deal With Iran

John KerrySecretary of State John Kerry has said in an interview that the U.S. government aims to gain “unprecedented access” to inspect the nuclear capabilities of Iran but will not settle or rush the process for just any deal, The Hill newspaper reported Sunday.

Jonathan Easley writes negotiations held last week in Geneva fell through because France said the proposed terms did not adequately restrict the nuclear capacities of Iran.

Lesser economic sanctions on Iran are on the table if the country stops its nuclear program, the report said.

“We need to get the right deal,” Kerry told NBC’s Meet The Press. “No deal is better than a bad deal and we are certainly adhering to that concept.”

The Hill reports Kerry said Iran agreed with the negotiation because of the present sanctions and the U.S. plans to use the opportunity for its goals.

“Now that they’re there, you have to act in some good faith and an effort to be able to move towards the goal you want to achieve,” Kerry said in the interview.
