open new horizons for dealing with serious problems that
affect our international community.”

“I believe this is a historic moment. We are reaching an
agreement that is not perfect for everybody but it is what
we could accomplish and it is an important achievement for
all of us,” said Zarif.

“Today could have been the end of hope on this issue, but
now we are starting a new chapter of hope.”

Mogherini said the decision demonstrated that “diplomacy,
coordination, cooperation can overcome decades of
tensions and confrontations”.

“It is a decision that openned a way to a new chapter in
international relations,” she said.

the presidents of the United States and Iran were expected
to speak about the deal.

“For them it is a historic deal that would serve some kind of
a re-set after decades of mistrust,” he said.
