N-deal potential geopolitical game changer: EC

Brussels: European Council president Donald Tusk said the agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1 on Tuesday over Iran’s nuclear programme could drastically change the current geopolitical paradigm, including Tehran’s ties with the international community.

“If fully implemented, the agreement could be a turning point in relations between Iran and the international community, paving the way to new avenues of cooperation between the EU and Iran,” Tusk said on Tuesday, adding that “geo-politically, it has the potential to be a game changer”.

Tusk said “the agreement reached today in Vienna represents a breakthrough, bringing to an end a 13-year nuclear standoff”.

“The text of the agreement is precise, we must now join forces to see it through, taking into account regional sensitivities,” he added. (IANS)
