On Tuesday, President Obama announced that after nearly two years of negotiations, the United Nations’ P5+1 group had reached an agreement with Iran which limits the country’s nuclear activity in exchange for the lifting of sanctions. Bryan R. Gibson argues that the deal is a win for the US, Iran and Israel. He writes that resolving the Iranian nuclear question aligns perfectly with America’s strategic objectives for the region, and opens the door for cooperation with Iran on important regional issues. While Iranian leaders now face the challenge of selling deal to Iranian public as a victory, the deal will give the country desperately needed relief from sanctions, and the chance for new investment. For Israel, he writes, despite the concerns of the country’s leaders, any reduction of the threat of an Iranian nuclear weapon corresponds to an improvement in its security.
