A deal with world powers ended a "manufactured crisis" over Iran's nuclear program, its foreign minister said Wednesday as he arrived home from negotiating the agreement which angered U.S. lawmakers.As attention turned to the lengthy process of implementing the complex accord, Mohammad Javad Zarif said the world had no cause to fear Iran's nuclear activities. Zarif, who led Iran's negotiating team in the 18 straight days of "tough" talks that culminated in Tuesday's historic agreement, said common ground had been found. Only hours earlier in Washington the deal came under intense scrutiny.Iran has always denied seeking an atomic bomb and that stance was reiterated by President Hassan Rouhani after Tuesday's agreement.Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the deal paves the way for a "broad" coalition to fight the Sunni extremist group which is as hostile to Shiite Iran as it is to the West.France was with Britain, China, Germany, Russia and the United States one of the six powers that reached the deal with Iran.
