The British prime minister, for his part, congratulated President Rouhani the achieved successes, and thanked him for his very constructive role in striking the final deal, and said, ‘You had a very constructive role in striking this final deal; we will try to implement this agreement in the next phases.’.
That is good for the region, that is good for regional stability, but we’re not aligning with Iran.
Back in 2013, when Iran’s nuclear negotiating team reached an interim deal that paved the way for this week’s agreement, hard-line elements within Iran denounced them as traitors.
The country’s pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani is seeking to end Iran’s long worldwide isolation by settling its nuclear dispute and bringing about a lifting of sanctions.
“By fixing the factitious disaster about its nuclear program diplomatically, a new alternative for regional and worldwide cooperation has emerged”, Zarif stated.
In a tense face-to-face exchange that reflected the gulf between Israel and the six world powers who negotiated with Tehran, Mr Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, rejected the visiting British statesman’s efforts to sell the pact signed this week in Vienna. Rouhani said he would like to have bilateral relations based on mutual respect and thetwo sides also discussed the reopening of their embassies, the official IRNA news agency reported.
The Iran nuclear deal will not result in any lessening of pressure on Tehran over its support for terrorism and its destabilising influence in the region, Prime Minister David Cameron insisted as he sought to reassure Gulf allies.
Under the nuclear deal, sanctions will be gradually removed in return for Iran accepting long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West has suspected was aimed at creating a nuclear bomb.
The Obama Administration isn’t the only government facing opposition to the Iran nuclear deal from conservative hawks.
Turkey, which maintains close economic ties with Tehran despite serious disagreements over Syria, welcomed the deal that is expected to boost Turkey’s trade with Iran and contribute peace in the region.
