Obama rejects Israeli criticism of Iran Nuclear agreement, Hezbollah welcomes agreement

US President Barack Obama responding to Israeli demands, said that a nuclear agreement with Iran would not be determined by Iran’s commitment to recognising Israel as state, reports Reuters.

“The notion that we would condition Iran not getting nuclear weapons in in a verifiable deal on Iran recognising Israel is really akin to saying that we won’t sign a deal unless the nature of the Iranian regime completely transforms,” said Obama on national radio.

Meanwhile the leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah ,welcoming the agreement between Iran and the world powers, said it ruled out the possibility of regional war.

“There is no doubt that the Iranian nuclear deal will be big and important to the region. The agreement, God willing, rules out the spectre of regional war and world war,” said Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Syrian television.
