Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney admitted that his “red line” on an Iranian nuclear program are identical to the stated policies of his political opponent, incumbent US President Barack Obama.
In an interview with ABC, portions of which were published online Friday, interviewer George Stephanopoulos asks Romney if his “red line” is the same as Obama’s.
“Yes,” the Republican candidate answered.
“My red line is Iran may not have a nuclear weapon,” Romney explained. “Iran as a nuclear nation is unacceptable to the United States of America.”
Romney did attempt to differentiating his proposed policies with Obama’s, saying he thinks Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should have been indicted for incitation to genocide and that “crippling sanctions” should have been put in place immediately.
