Canada's "radical" policy toward Iran after the conclusion of nuclear talks with major powers lacks any "rational basis," said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham.

Afkham on Wednesday denounced a statement by the Canadian Foreign Ministry released after Tehran and major powers reached a landmark nuclear agreement in Vienna on July 14.

"Continuation of a radical position against Iran by Canadian authorities, especially under the current conditions, indicates that that government's approach toward Iran does not have any rational basis," Press TV quoted Afkham as saying.

Ottawa's "adherence" to Israel's stance toward Iran has "led to the isolation of the country's conservative government within the international community and even among its closest traditional partners," she noted.

She called on the North American country to "embrace rationality and logic instead of warmongering and radicalism."

A statement by Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development accused Iran of being a "significant threat to international peace and security."
