“The nuclear deal — (is a) victory over war,” Xinhua news agency quoted Rouhani as saying.

“(It) has managed to disperse the clouds of hostility and perhaps even the specter of another war and extensive tensions from the Middle East,” he said.

The statement came as the Iranian president was speaking at the General Debate of the UN General Assembly, which opened here on Monday morning.

In July, Iran and six world major countries adopted an agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue that will put Iran on the path of sanctions relief but more strict limits on its nuclear program. The nuclear deal reached with the six world major countries is expected to help build confidence.

The comprehensive agreement was clinched between Iran and the P5+1 group — Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States plus Germany — after more than two weeks of tough bargaining in Vienna, the capital city of Austria.

Under the deal, the Security Council is expected to lift sanctions against Iran in return for Iran meeting strict conditions regarding its nuclear program.

Rouhani said that Iran would continue to seek peace within the region, adding that he had been elected two-years ago with a “mandate for consolidating peace and constructive engagement with the world”. He said that the deal also represented an opportunity for economic growth and development.
