Cruz: World Powers Should Publicly Outline Parameters Of Iran Deal
You mean we shouldn’t have to wait till it’s passed to find out what’s in it?
Via The Hill:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is demanding six world powers and Iran to produce a single outline of the framework agreement reached over Tehran’s nuclear program.
“While there appears to be consensus that some agreement was reached … there is no consensus on the actual parameters of that agreement — including such critical items as the scope of Iran’s ongoing nuclear program, the extent of the [International Atomic Energy Agency] verification regime, and the schedule for nuclear-related sanctions relief by both the United States and the international community,” Cruz, a 2016 presidential contender, wrote Friday in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry.
Therefore, Iran and the United States, France, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and Germany — the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) — should “make public a joint framework agreement outlining the parameters that have been agreed upon, and those that will be addressed in the event negotiations continue in both classified and unclassified form,” he argued.
