KONFRONTASI - US Secretary of State John Kerry has called on the Republican opponents of a nuclear understanding between Iran and the P5+1 to “hold their fire” until they see a final agreement later this year.
In an interview with CBS News on Sunday, Kerry said the agreement reached in Switzerland between the P5+1 and Iran over Tehran’s nuclear energy program is just an outline of a tentative accord and the Republicans should wait for the final version.
“In the end, it’s really the final agreement that will determine it,” Kerry said.
