Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took a celebratory stance on the announcement of an Iran nuclear agreement and said he looks forward to reading up on the fine points of the agreement.
He applauded the agreement as a “victory for diplomacy over saber-rattling” and said it has the potential to “keep the United States from being drawn into another never-ending war in the Middle East.”
“I congratulate President Obama, Secretary Kerry and the leaders of other major nations for producing a comprehensive agreement to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” Sanders said in a statement. “I look forward to learning more about the complex details of this agreement to make sure that it is effective and strong.”
Sanders is the only Democratic candidate who is a current member of Congress, which will be debating the deal.
