Damascus, Syria – Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that his country’s nuclear deal with the West would facilitate faster political solutions for crises in Syria and Yemen, which are considered the worst conflict zones in the Middle East.  

Rouhani said during an appearance on Iranian state television that: “The July 14 agreement had shown that diplomacy and engagement were the only way to solve serious political problems and end crises.”

“The final solution in Yemen is political, in Syria the final solution is political,” he said.

“The agreement will create a new atmosphere. The climate will be easier.” 

According to Rouhani, the two years of talks between Iran and six world powers (The United States, Russia, Britain, China, France and Germany) “was a Herculean task, but was worth it.”
