The agreement between world powers and Iran over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program is built on "lies and deceit," Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Tuesday, in the latest and most fierce criticism offered by him of the diplomatic process with Tehran to date.

Speaking soon after news of the deal's conclusion was confirmed by negotiators, Ya'alon stated, Iran "arrived at the negotiating table in a weak position, and has emerged victorious. Instead of fighting terror with all its might, the free world has granted legitimacy to Iran’s hateful, murderous ways. This agreement is a tragedy for all who aspire for regional stability and fear a nuclear Iran."

Ya'alon reiterated his warnings over the Islamic Republic regional aggression, describing it as "the world’s leading exporter of terror, maliciously involved in every angle of the Middle East conflict – either directly or indirectly, through its emissaries – undermining moderate Arab regimes, battling Israel and harming Western interests in the region."
