Rouhani: Nuclear Deal ‘One of Iran’s Greatest Successes’ Against the West
Iran’s president has expressed his complete satisfaction with the outcome of the nuclear deal reached between the Islamic Republic and world powers in July, regime-aligned Tasnim News Agency reported on Thursday.
Hassan Rouhani hailed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – which went into effect on Sunday – as “one of Iran’s greatest successes” against the West. He stressed that Iran had only agreed to the final version of the deal after “30 months of tough talks,” and that Tehran’s negotiators almost walked away three times.
Rouhani said that Iran had made sure the JCPOA would lead to the termination of the United Nations’ nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran, accomplishing the country’s long-term goals and objectives “without exception.”
