• US SEEKS 20-YEAR INSPECTION OF IRAN NUCLEAR PROGRAM

    0

    WASHINGTON, D.C.: Key US lawmakers, reduced to outside observers of the closed-door nuclear negotiations with Iran in Vienna, are demanding that any final agreement include decades of international inspections of Tehran’s atomic program. “A final agreement with Iran must put in place a long-term inspections and verification regime that lasts at least 20 years,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Robert Menendez and hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said in a letter they intend to send to President Barack Obama this week and were circulating on Tuesday. Several other lawmakers are likely to sign on to pressure the executive branch to stand tough as the Sunday deadline in Vienna nears for striking a historic nuclear deal between Iran and six major world powers including the United States.
