Iran Nuclear Deal Inked, Then Immediately Slammed by Israel

Iran reached a nuclear deal with the United States and five other world powers on Tuesday that negotiators say puts strict limits on the country's nuclear program, but the so-called "historic compromise" hailed in Britain by The Guardian was immediately slammed by Israel.

The deal hammered out in Vienna involved the United Kingdom, France, Germany Russia and China, as well as Iran and the United States. Under the agreement, Iran must take apart much of its nuclear infrastructure and in return the United Nations, United States and the European Union will begin to ease economic sanctions against it.

 


Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted a message on social media, calling the deal "a mistake."

President Barack Obama in a statement Tuesday morning began trying to sell the agreement as the best of all other alternatives.

"This framework would cut off every pathway that Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon," Obama said, according to Al Jazeera. "I am convinced that if this framework leads to a final comprehensive deal, it will make our country, our allies and our world safer. This deal is not based on trust. It's based on unprecedented verification."

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the agreement was a win for his country because it meant the end to economic sanctions.

"We have stopped a cycle that was not in the interest of anybody, not in the interest of non-proliferation," said Zarif. "We have built mutual distrust in the past...So what I hope is that through courageous implementation of this some of that trust could be remedied. But that is for us all to wait and see."

Saudi Arabia researcher Mansour al-Marzouki told Al Jazeera in April that his country feared an Iran nuclear deal because it would improve Iran's economic standing while still allowing the country to maintain its nuclear program.
