Josh Earnest: ‘The Widely Criticized Iran Deal’ Should Be Used as a Model for N. Korea

‘One of the benefits of the Iran deal, while not perfect, does actually have in place a rigorous program to verify that Iran is not further developing a nuclear program’

EXCERPT:

EARNEST: "Just to pick up on where Richard left off, I actually think the widely criticized Iran deal that was negotiated by the Obama Administration actually may provide some bread crumbs about a path here. Because one of the benefits of the Iran deal, while not perfect, does actually have in place a rigorous program to verify that Iran is not further developing a nuclear program. So maybe that is where you get the outline of a deal, some kind of rigorous verification measures that the North Koreans agree to because we already do know that they’re having trouble with this process of essentially miniaturizing their nuclear capability to fit it on top of a missile. You can put into place some kind of regime that would verify that they don’t make further advances that would limit the risk that we face even if denuclearization is a longer term goal.”
