Canada to keep sanctions against Iran despite nuclear deal

Canada will keep its sanctions in place – at least for now – despite the nuclear agreement Iran has reached with major world powers.

Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson issued a statement saying that Canada “will continue to judge Iran by its actions not its words,” and that the government in Ottawa will examine the agreement carefully before making any policy changes.

“We will examine this deal further before taking any specific Canadian action,” Mr. Nicholson said in the statement.

    “…judge Iran by its actions not its words”

    There is more good sense in these 8 words than in the entire Obama administration.
