Israel's deputy FM says Iran nuclear deal is 'historical capitulation'

July 14, 2015 10:15

The nuclear accord agreed upon in Vienna is a “historical capitulation of the West to the axis of evil led by Iran,” Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said Tuesday morning.

Hotovely issued her statement on the accord before it was formally announced.

The short term ramifications of the accord are “very grave,” she said, adding that Iran will continue to spread terror around the globe, continue to destabilize the region, and take a giant step toward becoming a threshold nuclear state.

“Israel will use all its diplomatic means to try and prevent the confirmation of the agreement,” she said, in an obvious reference to what will now be Israel's attempts to persuade Congress to vote against the accord.
