George Stephanopoulos On ‘This Week’By: Courtney Wills - November 24, 2013
George Stephanopoulos, host of ABC News’ This Week, a political interview and commentary program, interviewed Secretary of State John Kerry recently about the nuclear deal with Iran, as well as Senator Saxby Chambliss.
Secretary Kerry told Stephanopoulos on This Week Sunday, “Israel and the United States absolutely share the same goal here. There is no daylight between us, with respect to what we want to achieve at this point, We both want to make it certain Iran cannot have a nuclear weapon. And Iran cannot be in a place where they can breakout and suddenly get that nuclear weapon.”
Stephanopoulos also interviewed the head Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) on the show that he doesn’t have much hope that this deal will make much difference whether Iran builds a nuclear weapon or not.
“They’re going to destroy uranium enriched to 20 percent, but irrespective of what [Kerry] just said, they’re going to be able to continue to enrich uranium to 3.5 percent,” Chambliss argued. “They’ve got six tons now. They’re going to allow them to go to seven tons, and then they’ll come back down to six tons within the next six months, but they’ll still have that capability.”
Senator Chambliss then added, “I just don’t see this movement in the direction of preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon at all.”
