The Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) has hailed the interim deal between Iran and the Sextet over Tehran’s nuclear energy program
“The [P]GCC states have expressed their comfort towards the preliminary Geneva agreement pertaining to the Iranian nuclear program, and we look forward to its success to lead to a permanent pact that drives away the specter of tension from our region,” Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said on Tuesday.
Al-Sabah made the remarks at the opening of the 34th PGCC Summit in Kuwait City, the first since Iran and the Sextet – Britain, France, China, Russia and the US plus Germany – sealed the interim deal in Geneva on November 24.
The interim deal is aimed at paving the way for the full resolution of the decade-old dispute between the West and Iran over its civilian nuclear work.
During his first official visit to Kuwait earlier in December, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said resolving the impasse over Tehran’s nuclear energy program serves the interests of all countries in the region.
