In April 2015, Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, comprising the United States, China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Germany agreed with Iran on a framework deal to permit Tehran a peaceful nuclear program and gradually remove all economic sanctions.
Iran agreed to cut back uranium enrichment activities and decrease its number of centrifuges in exchange for sanctions relief.
However, Walker said Obama had abandoned Iranians battling for democracy in his quest to achieve for a nuclear deal with the country’s authoritarian rulers.
“Six years ago today, a rigged election in Iran spawned the Green Movement protests demanding greater freedom for the Iranian people.”
