Today, the Zionist regime has suffered the greatest loss from these agreements, as its propaganda against Iran will be ineffective from now on,Abbasali Mansouri Arani, a member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said Monday.
The five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany, known as the P5+1, announced a deal with Iran on Sunday to start implementing an interim nuclear deal on January 20, the EU's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said in a statement.
Mansouri Arani said the implementation of the plan would spell the end of the sanctions against Iran that Israel has sought to increase, according to the agency.
Bloomberg Businessweek reported Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared at the funeral for former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that Israel would not allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons capability.
Bloomberg also reported that as many as 59 U.S. senators have signed on in support of bipartisan sanctions legislation, which was submitted by Democrat Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Illinois Republican Mark Kirk.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor issued a response to the agreement on Sunday, declaring: "This expected and overdue implementation only furthers a deeply flawed agreement that legitimizes Iran's flagrant violations of multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions calling for the full suspension of its nuclear program."
