Kerry: Iran ‘Absolutely’ Deserves All Benefits of Nuclear Agreement. (SP)
On Monday, State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said that the US government had no intention of allowing Iran to access the US financial system.
Asked during an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe why the US Department of Treasury was ‘sanctioning’ the idea of helping Tehran get access to the US dollar and get more investments, Kerry said that Washington was "working very hard to do what is fair."
Moreover, when pressed about whether or not Tehran deserves such consideration, Kerry explained that in terms of the nuclear agreement Iran "absolutely deserves the benefits of the agreement they struck."
"We’ve in fact tried to work to make sure that the banks that are supposed to be doing legitimate business with respect to the transactions that are okay after the agreement that they’re operating,"
Kerry said. "It’s fair for Iran to get what it deserves because it kept it’s part of the bargain to date, with respect to the nuclear agreement." Hmmmm.........High crimes and misdemeanors. Read the full story here.
