Joint List hopes Iran nuclear deal will lead to Israel's denuclearization

July 14, 2015 12:36

The Joint List, the predominantly Arab faction in the Knesset, praised the nuclear deal between the West and Iran on Tuesday as “a victory of the will of the Iranian people and their struggle to remove the siege and sanctions against its country and its refusal to capitulate to international dictates.”

The faction, an amalgamation of the main parties representing the Arab sector in Israel, said that it was hopeful the agreement reached in Vienna “would be applied to Israel,” leading to the dismantlement of its own nuclear arsenal.

“The goals of Israel’s opposition [to the deal] is to remain the only nuclear power in the region and to deflect international public opinion away from the occupation, which is the source of tensions, warfare, and instability in the Middle East,” the party said.
