與伊拉克8年具破壞性的戰爭（1980-1988年）、及充滿爭議性的總統執政8年後（2006-2014年內賈德（Mr. Ahmadi Nejad）總統），伊朗再也無法負擔更多威脅國家穩定的經濟及政治壓力。於是伊朗人民投票支持新總統，這位總統承諾會與國際社會合作，並減少聯合國、歐盟與美國針對伊朗核計畫的經濟制裁。
The Nuclear Agreement between Iran and the World
A Historical Event for Iranian People and the World
After 36 years of hostility and no diplomatic relations between two countries, Iran and the USA, last week’s agreement between Iran and 6 powerful countries is a very important step not only for Iran, but also for the Middle East and even the whole world. Confronting the big challenge and danger of ISIS for the international community and the instability of the Middle East which is threatening the peace and relationship between the followers of the biggest religious groups, at last everyone was convinced that the nuclear program of Iran, which was under suspicion by many western countries, should be resolved by diplomatic means, to make room for paying the attention to more important issues.
The nuclear agreement, which was mostly discussed by the two longtime foes, Iran and the USA, at last was signed and more than anywhere in the world, Iranian people would feel it’s positive impacts on their every day’s life.
After having a destructive war with Iraq for 8 years (1980 – 1988) and having a problematic president (Mr. Ahmadi Nejad) again for another 8 years (2006 – 2014), Iran could no more bear the economic and political pressure that threatened the country’s stability. Iranian people voted for a new president, who promised to work with the international community and bring down many economic resolutions and sanctions which were issued by the UN, European Unions and US against Iran’s nuclear program.
On the other side when the western world realized that without solving the nuclear issue with Iran, it is almost impossible to deal with so many problems in the Middle East; they decided to try their best, maybe for the last time, to get to an agreement with the new Iranian government.
When the agreement was signed after a marathon of meetings and discussions for more than a year, Iranians all around the country rushed to the streets and began to celebrate it. Many photos and videos taken by ordinary Iranians show that for most of Iranians it means the end of an era of hostility with the world and the beginning of a new era which will bring them peace, prosperity and normalized relationship with so many countries around the world. However, many hardliners in Iran are not happy about this agreement, because they consider USA and the whole West their eternal enemy.
After signing the agreement, Tehran stock market reacted immediately and the stock index rose considerably, which was the reflection of trust about the future and skepticism changed into optimism. The equivalency of US dollar and other main currencies against Rial was plunged down though still it is too early to see the practical economic and political consequences of such an important event.
Still there is a long way ahead to go with so many details in the agreement and the different interpretations which both sides have about the points of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
It must be mentioned that there are countries and parties which don’t welcome this agreement, as they don’t believe that Iran would compile with it, or they think that the agreement will not stop Iran from its will to follow its ambitious nuclear program in a near or far future.
However, most of the world powers and people are happy about the historical event of signing nuclear agreement with Iran, as they believe the world is a safer and better place now.
