EU’s Mogherini: This is a good deal

A press conference of top diplomats from Iran and world powers begins in Vienna to finally confirm the nuclear deal has been reached.

EU foreign policy head Federica Mogherini says in English that the Iran deal is “a good deal, a good deal for all sides and the international community.”

“Today is an historic day. It is a great honor for us that we have reached an agreement. With courage, political will and leadership, we have delivered on the what the world was hoping for.”

“No one ever thought it would be easy. Historic descisions never are,” she says.

“Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances that under no circumstances will it seek, acquire or develop nuclear weapons,” she adds.”These documents are detailed and specific. All sides want clarity to assure the full and effective implementation of the agreement.”

“It is a balanced deal that respects the interest of all sides.”

The statement is then repeated by Iran Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif in Persian.
