Deal preventing Iran acquire nuclear weapon finally reached

Iran together with P5+1 group which includes France, China, Germany, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States have achieved a long-term comprehensive nuclear deal with Iran that will verifiably prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and ensure that Iran’s nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful going forward, July 14.

P5 group is composed of permanent members of the UN Security Council (France, China, Russia, UK and US).

“The Philippines welcomes the just concluded agreement on nuclear matters reached between Iran and the six negotiating countries,” the Department of Foreign Affairs said today.

DFA added that the agreement is an important measure in promoting security and stability, both regional and global.”

“We call on the countries involved and the international community to help maintain the positive momentum for long-term peace that this agreement creates,” DFA said.

The US government says this deal removes the key elements needed to create a bomb and prolongs Iran’s breakout time from 2-3 months to 1 year or more if Iran broke its commitments. Importantly, Iran won’t garner any new sanctions relief until the IAEA confirms that Iran has followed through with its end of the deal. And should Iran violate any aspect of this deal, the U.N., U.S., and E.U. can snap the sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy back into place.
