Iran nuclear deal will help in establishing the region: Aziz


ISLAMABAD: Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Tuesday said that the historic nuclear deal of Iran with major world powers is a good omen for Pakistan.


Aziz said that the nuclear deal will help in the establishing of stability in the region.

He said that the deal will also help to take the project of Pak-Iran gas pipeline forward.

Major powers and Iran struck a historic deal Tuesday aimed at ensuring Tehran does not acquire a nuclear bomb, in return for sanctions relief, a diplomat close to the talks said.

The breakthrough came on the 18th day of marathon talks between Tehran and the so-called P5+1 — the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany in Vienna.

“The agreement is concluded,” the diplomat told AFP in the Austrian capital, where a final ministerial meeting between Iran and the world powers was called for 0830 GMT.
