The implementation of the agreement with Iran on its nuclear program is an error, which the Western countries will regret. This opinion was expressed by the speaker of the house of representatives of the U.S. Congress Paul Ryan, reports RIA Novosti. He suspected that the benefit of the country from the lifting of sanctions will be used to finance global terrorism.

“Today, the administration of (U.S. President Barack –ed.) Obama will begin to lift economic sanctions from the world’s principal sponsor of terrorism at the state level. As admitted by the President himself, Iran is likely to use the monetary benefit is more than $ 100 billion in total – to fund terrorists,” believes Ryan.

On the night of Sunday the US and the EU confirmed the lifting of the economic and financial sanctions against Iran. This occurred after the submission of the final report of the International atomic energy Agency on Iran’s nuclear program. The head of the IAEA confirmed Tehran fulfillment of conditions for implementation of the nuclear deal.

In exchange for the lifting of sanctions, Iran undertook the conditions not to produce weapon-grade plutonium, to convert nuclear facilities and to use them solely for the purpose of production of the “peaceful atom”.
