Iran nuclear deal details: It will boost its war efforts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen

After years and years of sanctions and back and forth negotiations that always looked going the wrong way, Iran nuclear deal has finally been reached. The deal comes at a time when the Iranian regime was facing immense difficulty in managing the economy and its war efforts in at least three nations namely Syria, Iraq and Yemen. We discount Lebanon where its proxy Hizbullah is leading the fight on its behalf.

The negotiations that were going on non-stop for the last eighteen days in the Austrian capital Vienna have been more fruitful than anyone thought. As the Iranian foreign minister and European Union officials announced the successful and historic nuclear deal, the Iranian leadership erupted in joy.

The Mullah led Iranian theocratic regime has been busy in the last four years managing wars in Iraq and Syria and pumping billions of dollars in Bashar Al Assad’s empty coffers to keep him afloat. Besides it has also to finance one of the biggest illegal armies in the world in Lebanon in the form of Hizbullah. And without doubt this all requires lots of money.

GRAND AYATOLLAH ALI ALSISTANIThe signing of accord means that the Iranian regime will get hundreds of billions of dollars, frozen in the US and other European nations under very tough sanctions that have been imposed on it for a long time.

It is now clear that Iran is going to make full use of the massive amount of money that it will get in boosting its war efforts and Shia hegemony in the region. Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers reached a “good deal” here on Tehran’s nuclear programme, an Iranian official close to the negotiating team told Press TV. The result of the talks between Iran and the six countries — China, Britain, France, Russia, the US and Germany — would be formally announced soon, Xinhua quoted an European Union (EU) spokesman as saying.

There is no doubt that the nuclear talks have been aimed at reaching a final deal to limit Iran’s nuclear programme in exchange for lifting economic sanctions imposed almost a decade ago in accordance with a UN resolution after Iran refused to suspend its uranium enrichment programme. Iran for long has said that its nuclear programme was for peaceful purposes. The West fears it could be used to build an atomic bomb. A movement toward a deal has been marked by years of tough negotiations. The deal was meant to impose long-term, verifiable limits on nuclear programmes that Tehran could modify to produce weapons. Iran, in return, would get tens of billions of dollars in sanctions relief.

The breakthrough was looking likely for quite some time. On Tuesday, Iran’s chief negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif met his German, French and British counterparts. A formal announcement about the deal was expected after a final meeting between all the negotiators. The foreign ministers of Iran and the six powers will meet at the UN centre here, a spokeswoman for the European Union said. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and EU’s Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini are expected to read a joint statement, diplomats familiar with the talks said.

Diplomats said most of the nuts and bolts of implementing the deal have been agreed upon. But over the past week, issues that were previously on the back-burner have led to new disputes. Among them was Iran’s demand for a lifting of a UN arms embargo and its insistence that any UN Security Council resolution approving the nuclear deal be written in a way that stops describing Iran’s nuclear activities as illegal.
