The U.S. Senate would block a “bad deal” on the Iranian nuclear program, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) of South said in an interview with Israel Hayom published Sunday.
In Graham’s view, a bad deal is any agreement that permits Iran to enrich uranium.
“With Iran, we do not want to end up getting the same result we got with North Korea, which ultimately, despite the negotiations and the agreements, became a nuclear power,” he said. “It is very important that the Senate examine the agreement [with Iran]. Today, a majority of senators from both parties oppose the idea that Iran will enrich uranium.”
Graham said he intends to submit a bill to the new Senate majority leader, expected to be U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), that would require President Barack Obama to allow the Senate to review any nuclear agreement with Iran.
