President Obama said Saturday that opponents of his administration’s nuclear deal with Iran are engaging in “overheated and often dishonest arguments” to derail the accord.
“This deal will make America and the world safer and more secure,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. “We held out for a deal that met every one of our bottom lines. And we got it.”
But in Tehran, Iran’s top leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Saturday the historic nuclear deal won’t change Iran’s policy towards the “arrogant” United States. He said Iran will continue to support its allies in the Middle East including the Lebanese Hezbollah, Palestinian resistance groups and the Syrian government.
