Members of parliament hailed efforts by the nuclear negotiating team in remarks after Iran and the six world powers struck a historic deal on Tehran's nuclear program on Tuesday.

Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi praised the negotiating team, especially Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, for their endeavors, congratulating the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and the nation on "the success in the political arena."

"Without the guidelines of the Leader, reaching a deal with such significant achievements would have been impossible."

The deputy chairman of the commission, Mansour Haqiqatpour, described the accord as positive, saying the negotiators did a great job negotiating with the six world powers (the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany) in "unequal" conditions, ICANA reported on Wednesday.  

The gains achieved in the most recent round of talks in Vienna were "beyond comparable" to the ones attained in previous rounds of talks, Haqiqatpour said, noting that the real winner of the achievement is the Leader whose advice strengthened the negotiating team to stand firm on their stances. Member of the commission Ahmad Shouhani said the nuclear negotiators managed to stand up to the excessive demand of the West which together with the resistance of the nation during the years of sanctions led to the conclusion of a nuclear deal which safeguards national interests.  

  Changing a Wrong Image

Member of the Majlis Health and Treatment Commission Massoud Pezeshkian said efforts by the negotiators changed the world's attitude toward Iran.   "In recent years, a wrong image of the country had been presented to the world," he noted, adding that the performance of the previous administration had even served to fuel that picture.  

Pezeshkian termed as significant the role of the Leader and his support of the negotiating team in reaching a final agreement over the country's peaceful nuclear program.  

Another member of the parliamentary commission hailed the nuclear negotiators for fulfilling a difficult task. Alireza Marandi expressed hope that the West would keep its promise and lift sanctions at once.

Member of the Majlis Planning and Budget Commission Mohammad Reza Tabesh praised the performance of the negotiators in view of their "compliance with the set frameworks, control over technical issues, resistance against the world powers and insistence on the red lines."  

"We should now grasp this opportunity to remove economic constraints and develop the country," he noted, calling for making provisions for the post-sanctions era.  

Tabesh said with the probable injection of financial and human resources to the country as a result of the breakthrough, the required groundwork can be laid in the country with a view to helping develop the country in a situation that the sanctions have been removed.

"The positive results of the accord will be inherited by the next generations and will create job opportunities and curb inflation and will enhance the public trust to authorities," he noted.

  Decisive Resistance

The deputy head of the Majlis supervision board, Hossein Mozaffar, said the nuclear accord was the result of the "nation's resistance under sanctions, the guidelines of the Leader and the invaluable endeavors of the negotiators."

Describing the performance of the negotiating diplomats, especially the foreign minister, as "positive" and "optimal," Mozaffar said the wisdom of the negotiators made the West retreat from its unjust and illegitimate demands.

He expressed satisfaction over the fact that the red lines of the Islamic Republic have been observed in the final pact.  

Lawmaker Hossein Garousi praised the negotiating team for their tenacity and perseverance in defending the nation's nuclear achievements, calling the outcome of nuclear talks a win-win agreement.
