Hezbollah: Iran deal a ‘world-class’ victory
Tue Nov 26, 2013 09:53:03

Hezbollah says the weekend nuclear deal between Iran and world powers was “a major victory” for its regional ally.

“What was achieved through this agreement is a major victory for Iran and to all the people of the region and it is a defeat for the enemies of these people,” Hezbollah announced in a Monday statement.

“[It is] a model victory and world-class achievement which the Islamic state adds to its record which shines with victories and achievements.”

Hezbollah’s arch foe Israel denounced the nuclear deal as a “historic mistake.”

An interim deal to restrict Iran’s nuclear program was reached after five days of top-level talks in Geneva, Switzerland, Sunday.

The deal represents a historic breakthrough in the world’s decade-long nuclear standoff with Iran.
