In today’s Daily Dispatch, we again raised concerns over the impending nuclear deal that the U.S. and other Western powers seem determined to make with Iran. One Western nation is not so enthralled with the idea of a nuclear Iran, however. Arutz Sheva reports that the United States’ neighbor to the north is skeptical of the deal, and will not lift its sanctions against the Islamic Republic:
The Canadian government has not shared US President Barack Obama’s enthusiasm over the deal reached with Iran over its nuclear program last Thursday, by which the Islamic regime continues enriching uranium at reduced levels in exchange for the removal of sanctions.
Canadian Foreign Minister Rob Nicholson responded to the deal, warning that the Islamic regime may still be able to obtain a nuclear weapon even with the agreement.
“We have to make every possible diplomatic effort to ensure that Iran will never be able to achieve the ability to develop a nuclear weapon,” said Nicholson, noting such a development could spark a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
The foreign minister added that “Iran’s track record is not one that encourages trust.”
