Jobbik welcomes the agreement on Iran's nuclear programme

Jobbik welcomes the nuclear agreement between Western powers and Iran, which was concluded in Vienna on Monday. It is a key step towards ensuring peace and stability in the Middle East. We hope that the agreement will put an end to the decades-long anti-Iran Western campaign, especially the wrong sanction policy of the past nine years.

Ever since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the USA, along with its Western and Middle Eastern allies have kept Tehran under constant pressure, going as far as to provoke a war against Iran as it happened during the Iraq-Iran conflict in the 1980s. The current agreement may give a chance to end this harmful process.

In recent years, Iran has shown exemplary patience and consideration and sat at the negotiating table, allowing insight into its nuclear facilities, unlike Israel or Saudi Arabia who happen to be the most fervent opponents of this agreement. While the Islamic State, which was created with the backing of these countries, is destroying the Middle East with unheard-of barbarism, they conduct their war-like policy against one of the region's most peaceful nations.

Jobbik hopes that the agreement will also make way for an anti-ISIS coalition and prompt Western powers to focus their efforts on organizations posing a real and serious threat instead of fighting against invented dangers and fabricated accusations.
