Lok Satta Party national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today described the Iran nuclear deal as a triumph of restraint, diplomacy and commonsense and congratulated US Secretary of State John Kerry, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif and other key players.

The historic deal between Iran and the U.S., France, Britain, China, Russia and Germany, struck after tortuous negotiations on Sunday, seeks to curb Iran's nuclear development program in exchange for lifting some sanctions.

Dr. JP said in a media statement the U.S. acted with foresight and wisdom in brokering the nuclear deal with Iran and the chemical weapons deal with Syria. “The world cannot afford a war now.”

Dr. JP said India has a lot to gain from stability and peace in West Asia. “We need to promote our energy security through diplomacy.”
