The comments Foreign Minister Zarif made during an appearance in parliament to present a nuclear report to MPs dominated the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday.


Ettela’at: “The nuclear deal amounted to the victory of logic over war,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Tuesday as he presented a report to deputies on the agreement he and his team struck with P5+1 over Tehran’s nuclear program.

“Our biggest achievement is that the UN has put a seal of approval on enrichment in Iran, something which is unprecedented in the 70-year history of the Security Council,” the top diplomat told MPs.
