President Obama Comments on Iran Nuclear Talks After Meeting with Amir of Qatar

February 24, 2015

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear


And we also had a very useful discussion around Iran and the negotiations that are currently taking place to try to reduce the possibility of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. Those negotiations are ongoing.  I gave the Amir an update and assured him that our goal here is to be able to verify that Iran does not have a nuclear weapon, and that we will continue to press Iran on some of its other actions in the region that often have a destabilizing effect, recognizing, however, that we would greatly prefer to be able resolve many of these issues diplomatically.  And I know that Doha shares the same view.
