Kerry: Nuclear deal not intended to 'reform' Iran regime

US Secretary of State John Kerry testifies before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the Iran nuclear agreement on July 28, 2015 in WashingtonThe Iran nuclear deal was not intended to reform the country’s hardline regime but simply prevent atomic bomb development, Secretary of State John Kerry told US lawmakers Tuesday while defending the controversial accord. “Let me underscore: the alternative to the deal we’ve reached isn’t a better deal… some kind of unicorn fantasy that contemplates Iran’s complete capitulation,” Kerry warned before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “That’s a fantasy, plain and simple,” he said, adding that a rejection of the deal would essentially give Iran a “green light” to return full-speed to its enrichment efforts.
