In ritardo, ma volentieri diffondo:
Today’s deal is a major triumph for peace. For more than a decade the Iran nuclear negotiations were defined by failure. However, through persistence and commitment to diplomacy Iran and the P5+1 powers have reached an agreement that avoids a catastrophic war. It’s time to show the same commitment to improving human rights and civil liberties in Iran.
In the last few months, as the world’s attention was focused on the negotiations, Iranian women were once again banned from entering sports stadiums, a new wave of musicians were prevented from exercising their freedom of expression, the legal rights of those facing “security” charges were curbed, and the father of a political prisoner was imprisoned for talking about his son’s condition.
Today’s deal is a victory for commitment to peace. The international community should now show the same support for improving the human rights and civil liberties of Iranians.
