Zarif hails deal as ‘new chapter of hope’

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tells reporters at a joint press conference with negotiators from world powers that the nuclear accord is “an important achievement,” that will enable all sides to turn a new leaf and move forward.

“[The deal] is an important achievement for all of us. Today could have been the end of hope on this issue. Today we are starting a new chapter of hope. Let’s consider this everybody’s achievement,” Zarif says, adding “this is a historic moment.”

“We are reaching an agreement that is not perfect for anybody,” Zarif adds.

According to a Channel 10 report, the accord is more than 100 pages long and contains multiple appendices.

The pact will be formally signed following the conference.
