Iranian officials have greeted the US-Russian deal on Syria’s chemical weapons disarmament with open praise, with parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani saying it was an example of “US rationality.”
Iran’s new Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif also cheered the deal, saying that he was glad that the apparent threat to military action against Syria has passed, while expressing hopes that it could spark trust-building between the two nations.
Iran’s new government has been pushing diplomacy with the US as a primary foreign policy goal, with President Hassan Rohani running on a platform of rapprochement and appointing reformists to his cabinet.
That the US is finally backing off the Syria war (more or less) has raised some hope that the US will be more reasonable in making a deal with Iran, but administration officials seem to be downplaying that so far.

Is a good deal when Israel sign the same deal too, than is a very good deal fir the world, but I wouldn't waste my penny over trusting USG nor Europeans present governments for that matter, there is always something about them prohibiting many others not to trust them at all, especially who they support fighting the Syrian people and those who supports terrorists-mercenaries that are fighting the Syrian people.
The US is bent on some form of regime change in Iran, so Iran's attempts at diplomacy won't work. It can't argue logic with an illogical, corrupt, bullying US government.
