Arab sheiks gave a thorough report to their oversea boss

Arab sheiks gave a thorough report to their oversea boss

Arab states of the Persian Gulf seem to be satisfied with the nuclear deal reached between Iran and a group of six countries.

Qatar foreign minister Khalid bin Mohammad Al-Attiyah claimed at the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) that the nuclear deal was the best decision of a long-lasting argument between the mediators and the official Teheran. Al-Attiyah commented on the reached agreement after the meeting of six countries’ foreign ministers. The US secretary of state John Kerry attended the meeting too.

On behalf of GCC, Qatar minister said to Kerry that the political power of the region welcomed the nuclear deal. Kerry also reassured everyone (including himself, apparently) that the agreement was unanimous. Yet, its implementation is open to question as the Congress of the USA might not ratify the treaty.

Many countries welcomed the Iran nuclear agreement and called it a historic breakthrough. However, not all the states of the region were quite satisfied with the results of the long-lasting negotiations (the stage of finalization and approval only took 20 months). Among such countries are Saudi Arabia and Israel. They consider Shia Iran as their principal opponent. Official Riyadh has already started seeking for potential allies should a conflict with Iran occurs. The prime minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu is going to Washington to convince the US congressmen that Iran will be extremely dangerous in case of the nuclear programme development under the international supervision.
