Iran nuclear agreement will help world peace: Analyst

Hagopian says a nuclear agreement with Iran is a victory for the world.

Investigative journalist Joachim Hagopian says a nuclear agreement with Iran is a win-win situation and Democratic Representative Seth Moulton was speaking “words of reason to his compatriots” in warning US Congress against rejecting it.

“It is a win-win for Iran and the P5+1 group of nations and obviously it is a win for the world because it increases the chance that there might be world peace,” Hagopian told Press TV on Sunday.

He maintained that the deal will be finalized by the UN and the world “will move forward and leave Netanyahu and his diehard warmongering worshippers behind.”

He made the comments one day after Moulton said that the Iran deal was “by far the best viable option before us” and it was “the best course of action to prevent a nuclear Iran.”

This is while Republican lawmakers in Congress have threatened to derail the agreement.

The text of the agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is currently being reviewed by Congress.

Republicans will need a two-third majority in Congress to prevent the JCPOA from becoming law.

Hagopian said that the anti-Iran GOP senators are not in majority and need help from Democrats which is not going to happen.

The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee has also formed a group dubbed “Citizens for a nuclear-free Iran,” which is spending millions of dollars to oppose any accord with Iran.

The group has reportedly deployed 300 lobbyists on Capitol Hill to convince lawmakers to vote against the nuclear agreement.

AIPAC, along with other pro-Israel groups, are funding a national television advertising campaign to inform the public “about the dangers of the proposed Iran deal.”

“They [opponents] are on the wrong side of the history and they are going to pay for it too,” Hagopian said.

“They are going to be held accountable” for supporting Netanyahu and his lies, he added.
