Prime Minister David Cameron comments on international agreement with Iran.

David Cameron said:

We now have an international agreement with Iran that moves it further away from getting a nuclear weapon. This is an important first step, which must now be fully implemented. We will continue to enforce sanctions robustly in order to secure a comprehensive and final settlement that fully addresses the real and substantive concerns of the international community.

Today’s deal with Iran demonstrates how persistent diplomacy and tough sanctions can together help us to advance our national interest.
