Iran's instrumental negotiation deal with the EU has angered hardliners of the Iranian parliament. But the chief negotiator, Hassan Rowhani, has contented that the comments were mostly personal ones of the members only and did not represent the entire layout. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme religious leader, however is more optimistic about the deal and is widely thought to have supported the deal with the Europeans.
"We agreed to make 13 precise commitments while the Europeans only made four vague ones," Ahmad Tavakoli, one of the hard-liners, fumed during a noisy Parliament session on Monday.

From the Europeans' perspective, the deal fell short of the comprehensive arrangement they had sought to permanently stop Iran from enriching uranium, a crucial step in the production of nuclear weapons.

The preliminary deal, far from being perfect, is of major importance in thwarting another nuclear nation from forming, and at the same time improving Iran-Western world relations.

Coming at the time when U.S. is playing the role of the much hated occupiers in the middle east, this deal shows there is much room for improvement.
