There is nothing to be happy about. Iran is going to get tens of billions in cash after lifting the sanctions, which means development, expansion in all sectors as well as dramatic rise in support for it's allies in the region.I'm joking ! So happy my great brother.

You're exaggerating the amount of money that they will get back. Firstly, it's their money, they aren't being rewarding, they're getting access to it. Estimates claim 150$ billion will be freed or less. Which isn't much no matter how they use it. If they pump into Syria, it will cost minimum 10$ billion a year. With Lebanon/Iraq another $5 billion per year, since they pay salaries of all Hezbollah members including their normal employee services. If they use it for economic projects, it will be gone rather quickly. Then the corruption factor, some of it will be taken and added to wealth of elites.There is nothing to be happy about.

President Barack Obama telephoned Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz on Tuesday from Air Force One to discuss the newly completed Iran nuclear agreement, the White House said.
Saudi Arabia expressed hope Tuesday for an end to Iran's regional "interference" after a historic nuclear deal aimed at ensuring Tehran does not obtain an atomic bomb was struck.
"Given that Iran is a neighbor, Saudi Arabia hopes to build with her better relations in all areas on the basis of good neighborliness and non-interference in internal affairs," said an official spokesman cited by the Saudi Press Agency.
Both leaders also discussed the urgent need to stop the fighting in Yemen and ensure assistance for all Yemenis through international humanitarian channels.
Obama also spoke with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan by telephone to discuss the nuclear agreement.
The United Arab Emirates welcomed the historic deal saying it could turn a “new page” for the Gulf region.
“Iran could play a (significant) role in the region if it revises its policy and stops interfering in the internal affairs of countries like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen,” a UAE official said in the first reaction from the Gulf Arab monarchies to the Vienna accord.
Meanwhile, Egypt said it “hopes that the deal between both sides is complete and prevents an arms race in the Middle East as well as ensuring the region is free of all weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons.”
Obama emphasized the United States' commitment to working with Gulf partners, such as United Arab Emirates, to counter Iran's destabilizing activities in the region.
Following the calls, it was revealed that the U.S. president is sending his defense chief next week to the Middle East to reassure reassuring allies that the nuclear deal will not undermine America's commitment to their security.
U.S. defense officials told Reuters that Defense Secretary Ash Carter would travel to Israel and elsewhere within the region but declined to offer details.
The agreement between Iran and six major world powers could transform the Middle East, curbing sensitive Iranian nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief - and, in the process, upending assumptions about Tehran's isolation.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Tuesday's deal as "a stunning, historic mistake."
Offering a hint of his message to allies, Carter said in a statement about the Iran deal that the United States stood ready to "check Iranian malign influence".
"We remain prepared and postured to bolster the security of our friends and allies in the region, including Israel," he said.
Iran and major powers agreed on a mechanism under which the U.N. nuclear watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency could get access to suspect nuclear sites in Iran within 24 days, the text of the Iran nuclear agreement said.
Iran will also be allowed to conduct research and development (R&D) with uranium for advanced centrifuges during the first 10 years of a nuclear agreement with major powers, according to the text of the deal posted on the Russian foreign ministry website.
"Iran will continue to conduct enrichment R&D in a manner that does not accumulate enriched uranium," the text of the agreement said.
Tehran and the six powers had been holding marathon diplomatic negotiations at the ministerial level for more than two weeks to resolve a 12-year stand-off over Iran's nuclear program.

Iran nuclear deal should be scrutinized carefully: Khamenei

The text of a nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers should be carefully scrutinized and legal procedures taken so the other side does not breach it, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said in his first public statements on the accord.
Iran and six world powers reached a deal on Tuesday, capping more than a decade of negotiations with an agreement that could transform the Middle East.
Under the deal, sanctions imposed by the United States, the European Union and the United Nations will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West has suspected was aimed at creating a nuclear bomb.
In a letter to Iranian President Hassan Rowhani, Khamenei, the ultimate authority on all matters of state, wrote: “Reaching a deal is a significant step, but the text of the deal should be carefully scrutinized and the legal procedures should be taken so when the deal is ratified the other side cannot breach it.”
“Some of the members of the P5+1 are not trustworthy,” he said referring to the six world powers in the letter, published by state news agency IRNA.
He added: “I ask our dear nation to stay calm and united so we can preserve our national interests in a serene and sensible environment.”
