14. Iran nuclear agreement (debate)
Video of the speeches

  David Campbell Bannerman (ECR ). Mr President, as Chairman of the Iraq Delegation, I have been following the talks between the West and Iran with great concern. Just one day after signing this deal, and Iran is shelling our allies in Yemen. While dressed up as a peace deal, this is just appeasement. This agreement trivialises the Iranian regime’s human rights violations. More than 2 000 people have been hanged by the ‘moderate’ President Rouhani whom you, Ms Mogherini, were happy to take tea with. This is the highest level of executions for 25 years, 1 000 forecast by this year end: the highest number of executions per head in the world. The group-think mentality of the EU and P5+1 has resulted in every obstruction from the Iranians, rewarded with more giveaways. Iranian officials have described negotiations as a form of Jihad by other means. This deal frees up millions of euros for yet more sponsorship of terror. They are just laughing at us. Under the agreed framework for 10 years, Iran will never be further than one year from a nuclear weapon, and then it will get the bomb. This deal is utter folly.

(The speaker agreed to take a blue-card question under Rule 162(8)).
