Rabat – Iran and a group of 6 nations reached a historic deal on Tuesday to increase control over Iran’s nuclear abilities, after 20 months of discussion among negotiators.
In response to the deal, most leaders seem hopeful for their future relations with Iran, yet will remain cautious over Iran’s nuclear activity.
The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabian officials believe the deal can help to transform the relations within the region and turn over a “new page,” as stated by the United Arab Emirates.
“Given that Iran is a neighbor, Saudi Arabia hopes to build with her better relations in all areas on the basis of good neighborliness and non-interference in internal affairs,” an official spokesman cited by the Saudi Press Agency stated.
Egypt said it hopes the deal will prevent an arms race in the Middle East as well as ensure the region is free of all weapons of mass destruction.
The United States also looks forward to the deal preventing nuclear violence, however President Barack Obama notes that the deal is “not built on trust — it is built on verification.”
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyaju remains pessimistic towards the deal, and referred to it as a “historic mistake” that would create a “terrorist nuclear superpower.”
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani commended the deal, which will bring economic relief to the people of Iran.
“Negotiators have reached a good agreement and I announce to our people that our prayers have come true,” Rouhani said in a live address to the nation.
