A member of the Majlis majority faction said Iran's performance in nuclear negotiations with the major powers thwarted the plot to promote Iranophobia.

"The Iranophobia strategy adopted by some reactionary regional states has failed thanks to the nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany)," Gholamali Jafarzadeh said.

Iran and the six nations reached a comprehensive deal on Tuesday after marathon nuclear talks which requires Iran to accept temporary constraints on its nuclear program in return for the lifting of international sanctions.

The nuclear deal proved that Iran is an advocate of peace, he said in an interview with IRNA on Monday.

"The agreement shows the West and our neighboring countries that Iran does not seek to wage war and such an allegation is baseless."

The lawmaker praised the Rouhani government for prudently handling the country's foreign relations, saying, "Iran had been portrayed as an isolated country in the region."

"However, with the adjustments made to the foreign policy… and the instructions by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Iran showed it favors logic and does not seek to build a nuclear bomb."

Jafarzadeh said he is opposed to holding a "nuclear celebration" for the deal because it might give the US the impression that it has earned the Iranians' satisfaction.
