Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday shot back at critics who said Iranian leaders cannot be trusted.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani delivers his speech in a conference to commemorate late Khadijeh Saghafi, wife of late revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khomeini, in Tehran, Iran on Sunday.
Secretary of State Kerry on Sunday defended the nuclear deal with Iran against critics who say the country’s leaders can’t be trusted.
“We don’t trust. There is no element of trust in what we’re doing,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“This is an agreement that is based on transparency, accountability, verification.”
Kerry said he will brief the House on Monday and the Senate on Tuesday on the negotiations, but said Congress must not try to scuttle the agreement.
