The Republican chairman of the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee criticized the nuclear agreement reached with Iran on Tuesday, saying it does not require Tehran to dismantle alleged bombmaking technology and will allow it to develop an industrialized nuclear program in 10 years.

Iran denies the allegation that it may have been seeking to develop a nuclear weapons capability, saying its program is solely for peaceful purposes such as generating electricity.  

“The deal they have struck is looking like a tough sell,” US Representative Ed Royce, who was to convene a hearing on the deal Tuesday morning, said in a statement, Reuters reported.
