Presidential Political and Media Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban said the nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group would allow Iran to play a more important role in fighting terrorism on the regional and international levels.
“We are so relieved at the signing of this deal as it is a fundamental point for the future of the region and the world,” said Shaaban in an interview with the BBC Arabic TV channel.
She added that the deal, which was reached on Tuesday in the Austrian capital Vienna, asserts the peacefulness of Iran’s nuclear program.
Iran, being a party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, is worthy of developing its peaceful nuclear capabilities and seeks the just peaceful approach for solving issues in the region and the world.
In her response to a question on the impact of the nuclear deal on the regional issues and particularly in Syria, Shaaban said there is no way that Iran would play other than a positive role in cooperation for establishing peace, justice and stability.
She explained that with this deal in hand and granting Iran full relief of pressures and intimidation it has suffered for tens of years, Iran is the best example of a country understanding the importance of helping other peoples against sanctions and intimidation, stressing that Iran has actually been a great supporter of the just issues of peoples.
Shaaban ruled out any room for worry over Iran striking under-the-table deals, as asked by the BBC interviewer, stressing that “history attests to our alliance and friendship with Iran.”
She however expressed concerns over Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction, hoping that Iran’s nuclear deal with the major world powers will be a “real step” towards establishing a zone free of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.

President Bashar al-Assad sent on Tuesday two cables to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani congratulating them on reaching the final nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced in the Austrian capital Vienna, the venue for the nuclear negotiations, that Iran has come to a final nuclear agreement with the six major world powers- the US, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.
In his cable addressed to Khamenei, the President described the deal as “a great victory” achieved by Iran, expressing on behalf of the Syrian people and on his own behalf “heartfelt” congratulations on this “historic achievement”.
“Indubitably, this agreement crowns the steadfastness of the Iranian people, with all their components and inclinations, in the face of the unfair sanctions that were imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.
Notwithstanding the cruelty of those sanctions, he added, the Iranian people have created a chance out of them to boost their own capabilities and take their researches, universities and achievements to high levels that earned them the recognition of the entire world.
The signing of this agreement constitutes a “major turning point” in the history of Iran, the region and the world, said President al-Assad.
It is also, he added, an “unequivocal recognition by the world countries of the peacefulness of the Iranian nuclear program,” one that safeguards the national rights of Iran’s people and asserts its sovereignty and the independence of its political decision.
“We are quite assured that the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue, with greater momentum, supporting the just issues of peoples and working for peace and stability to prevail in the region and the world,” the President said.
The President’s sincere congratulations and wishes for more success were also expressed in his cable sent to Iran’s President Rouhani, in which he reiterated that reaching the final nuclear agreement has guaranteed the Iranian people’s rights to possessing peaceful nuclear technology.
The deal, he said, has also constantly bolstered the possibility of “safeguarding your people’s national rights” after the world has attested to Iran’s credibility and the invincibility of its people, negotiators and government.
President al-Assad also hailed the deal as being a “fundamental turning point” in the history of Iran’s relations with the countries of the region and the world, voicing confidence that the coming days will see greater momentum in Iran’s constructive role in backing the people’s rights and establishing the foundations of peace and friendly relations among countries to the best interest of the whole humanity.

Final Iran nuclear deal clinched, Russia hopes for positive impact on fighting terrorism
Iran and the countries of the P5+1 group agreed on a nuclear deal on Tuesday, capping years of negotiations with a final agreement.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced that Iran has come to a final agreement with the six major world powers- the US, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.
“Today is a historic day, and we proudly announce that we have reached a nuclear deal,” said Zarif, addressing a joint press conference with Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in the Austrian capital Vienna.
Mogherini, for her part, said the deal on the Iranian nuclear file was officially announced.
During the final meeting with the six major world powers-the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany-before the announcement of the deal, Zarif described the announcement of the comprehensive joint work plan on the Iranian nuclear file as a “historic moment” and an important achievement for all the parties.
Prior to the announcement, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said in a Tweet that reaching a deal on Iran’s nuclear file would be a victory for “the logic of diplomacy over the language of pressures and arrogance.”
Under the deal, sanctions on importing and exporting imposed on Iran since 35 years by the United States, European Union and United Nations would be lifted in return for Iran scaling down its nuclear program.
Reports say that Iran would be able to enter the world markets as a nuclear materials-producing country.
Economic and financial blockade on the Iranian sectors of banking, financing, oil, gas, petrochemicals, trade, transport and communications would be lifted, and so would be the blockade imposed on armament and purchase of heavy equipment and airplanes.
Those sanctions would be replaced by some restrictions instead.
Alongside the deal, Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) signed on Tuesday a “road map” deal for clarifying aspects of Iran’s nuclear program.
Ali Akbar Salehi, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), who signed the deal, said Iran and the IAEA will take measures to settle all long-pending issues.
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin welcomed the nuclear deal, saying it brings the world “a sigh of relief”.
Russia, he said, will make maximum efforts to make the nuclear deal help in forming a wide alliance for fighting terrorism.
The United Arab Emirates also welcomed this deal, with President of the UAE Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan sending a cable to President Rouhani in which he congratulated him on this achievement and hoped that it will help boost security and stability in the region.
Likewise, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg welcomed the deal, describing it as a historic breakthrough.
In turn, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the deal which he described as historic, voicing appreciation for the leaders who approved it and hoping that it will lead to further agreements and cooperation in the Middle East.
