As reported by The New York Times, the top nuclear researchers have announced their support for the agreement in a letter to President Barack Obama. They’ve called the nuclear deal a major security achievement, which can serve as a guidepost for future nonproliferation agreements. Six Nobel laureates are among the signatories. The letter comes at a time when the Obama administration is intensifying efforts to convince the skeptical members of Congress to back the agreement. Lawmakers are due to vote on the nuclear conclusion reached with Iran in September.
