Nepal welcomes Iran deal
KATHMANDU, July 15
Nepal has welcomed the agreement concerning ‘Iran’s Nuclear Programme’ reached between Iran and P5+Germany.
Nepal hopes that the agreement will be instrumental in promoting international peace and security and upholding friendly relations among countries, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.
“The Government of Nepal congratulates the parties on reaching the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action after the hectic negotiations that lasted for months.” “Nepal believes that the Plan of Action paves the way for peaceful resolution of this issue,” said MoFA. After 18 days of intense negotiation, world powers and Iran struck the deal to curb Iran's nuclear programme in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions — an agreement designed to avert the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran and US military intervention in the Muslim world. The accord will keep Iran from producing enough material for an atomic weapon for at least 10 years and impose new provisions for inspections of Iranian facilities, including military sites.
