US’ sanctions on Iran, a bad game: Pak analyst

A senior Pakistani analyst says the decision after the US' pulling out of nuclear deal to re-impose sanctions against Iran will not serve the ends of peace, stability or order in the region.

In an article, published in 'Express Tribune', Rasul Bakhsh Rais said it took years to assiduously craft the nuclear agreement by the then US' administration of President Barak Obama.

The major countries of the European Union, including Britain and Russia, had a role to play in getting the two sides � Washington and Tehran � to reach the historic deal, he said.

He said that all parties, including the nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, were satisfied with the nuclear agreement.

The analyst went on to say that actually beyond nuclear agreement, the Americans have another project in mind � the change of government in Iran.

He added that following rise of the new right in American politics and its power, that manifested in the election of President Donald Trump, Washington's outlook towards the Middle East has changed.

It was above and over the objections of allies in the region that the Obama administration signed the deal with Iran. Unsurprisingly, Zionist Regime and some Arab states are overjoyed by the American decision to slap sanctions on Iran, he noted.

He reiterated that American withdrawal from the agreement and imposition of sanctions against Iran will not serve the ends of peace, stability or order in the region.
