What do Iran’s neighbors think of the nuclear deal?
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said, "The Iran Deal expresses a common will to bring peace and security to our region."
Syria's President Bashar al-Assad went with, "[The nuclear deal is an] unequivocal recognition by the world countries of the peacefulness of the Iranian nuclear program." (Video via Presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic)
Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammed al-Attiyah, speaking for the GCC, said, "This was the best option among other options — to come up with a solution … through dialogue."
Pakistan welcomed the agreement as well, saying it would "auger well for peace and security in our region."
Yemen is somewhat split. The Iran-backed Houthi government called the agreement a “landmark deal”. The internationally-backed Yemeni government-in-exile has yet to comment. (Videos via Al Masirah TV & Saudi TV Channel 2)
King Abdullah II of Jordan didn't really indicate a side, instead simply saying he didn't see any "negative impact" from Iran deal.
And Egypt's Foreign Ministry released a middle-of-the-road statement saying it "expressed hope that the deal between both sides is complete and prevents an arms race in the Middle East."
And of course, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had his own words to describe the deal. "What a stunning, historic, mistake."
