Obama says 'I will walk away' from bad Iran deal Obama says 'I will walk away' from bad Iran deal

US President Barack Obama warned Tuesday he will "walk away" from a bad nuclear deal with Iran, as Tehran and six world powers gave themselves until July 7 to reach an agreement, AFP reports.

Insisting there must be a "strong, rigorous verification mechanism" for monitoring Iran's nuclear sites, Obama sent a fresh warning to Iran's leaders and negotiators.

Obama said his instructions to negotiators in Vienna had been "extremely clear" -- that a deal must block Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

He said there had been "a lot of talk" from Iranian negotiators questioning the terms of a framework agreement reached in Switzerland in April. 

"If they cannot, that's going to be a problem because I've said from the start, I will walk away from the negotiations if, in fact it's a bad deal," he told a joint press conference with visiting Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

"If we can't provide assurances that the pathways for Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon are closed and if we can't verify that, if the inspections regime, verifications regime, is inadequate, then we're not going to get a deal."

Obama said that "ultimately, this is going to be up to the Iranians."

Iran and the so-called P5+1 -- the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany -- on Tuesday gave themselves an extra week to clinch a historic nuclear deal as a midnight deadline approached with no breakthrough in sight.
