NSN Statement: P5+1 and Iran Framework Agreement

April 2, 2015

Washington DC – the National Security Network’s Executive Director John Bradshaw gave the following statement regarding the framework agreed upon by Iran and the P5+1 in Lausanne, Switzerland:

The framework announced today between the P5+1 nations and Iran represents historic progress toward the goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. While much work remains to be done to achieve a final agreement, the framework demonstrates that the Obama Administration and international partners have taken a responsible approach to the negotiations and have resisted signing any deal that would not adequately achieve the vital goal of preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons.

Those who have called for taking military action against Iran should step back and look at what diplomacy can achieve. The framework reached today will lay the foundation for an agreement that limits Iran’s enrichment program and ensures that it is used only for peaceful purposes. This framework addresses all of Iran’s potential pathways to a weapon and a final comprehensive agreement will ensure that all of those pathways are blocked.

The Obama Administration and its international partners have held firm in waiting until this significant understanding could be reached. This is an important day in the history of diplomacy and global non-proliferation efforts.
