Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says further promotion of ties between Iran and European Union can be reached after the nuclear agreement, Al-Alam News Network reports.

“The nuclear agreement should mark [Iran’s] better cooperation with Europe,” Rouhani said in a meeting with visiting French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Tehran on Wednesday.

On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 countries – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany – finalized the text of an agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in the Austrian capital of Vienna.

Under the JCPOA, limits are put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for a set of commitments by the P5+1, including the removal of all economic and financial bans against the Islamic Republic.

Rouhani said that Iran-France cooperation over the Vienna agreement should constitute the base for future relations on the basis of mutual trust.

He said that the nuclear agreement benefits Iran, the P5+1 countries and all regional players, adding that it is a significant step in turning threats into opportunities.

The Iranian president also urged all countries involved in the nuclear talks to do their utmost to “safeguard the agreement.”

“The Iranian government is steadfast in the path of [implementing] the agreement, and we will fulfill our commitments as long as the opposite side is committed to its obligations,” Rouhani said.
