US President Barack Obama said on Monday he was yet to hear a strong factual argument against a nuclear deal with Iran and criticized rhetoric about the agreement from some leading members of the Republican Party.

Obama, speaking in Ethiopia during a tour of African nations, said the majority of the world’s nuclear scientists and non-proliferation experts backed the July 14 accord, indicating it was the best way to resolve the Iran nuclear dispute, Reuters reported. “There is a reason why 99% of the world thinks it’s a good deal – it’s because it’s a good deal,” Obama said at a joint press conference with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn in Addis Ababa. “The good news is that I’ve not yet heard a factual argument on other side that holds up to scrutiny,” he added.
