Iran deal will bring ‘regional stability’, Iraqi official says

The spokesman for Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi says the nuclear deal announced Tuesday between Iran and world powers in Vienna will be “a catalyst for regional stability.”

Saad al-Hadithi tells The Associated Press that the landmark agreement, designed to avert the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, is “an important step” and will lead to better unity in the fight against terrorism.

Despite their shared interests in defeating the Islamic State group, a US-led coalition has not worked directly with Iran, Iraq’s biggest ally, even as negotiations were underway in Vienna.
