Tunisia Welcomes Iran Nuclear Deal (allAfrica.com)

Tunisia has welcomed the nuclear deal between Iran and a group of six nations led by the United States that puts an end to a ten-year crisis.

The agreement will restore confidence between all sides and guarantee peace and stability in the region, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press statement Wednesday.

Tunisia, which welcomes this deal, reiterates its constant position of principle against the proliferation of nuclear arms and weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East region.

Tunisia insists on the right of all countries to have nuclear technology for peaceful use and within the respect for international conventions and the conditions and guarantees set by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Tunisia hopes to see this agreement ushers in a new stage in regional relations, based on good neighbourliness and mutual trust and rids the Middle East of weapons of mass destruction, said the same source.

A group of six nations reached a deal with Iran last Monday in Vienna on limiting nuclear activity in return for the lifting of international economic sanctions.
