Iran's foreign minister and top negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif in landmark remarks declared attainment of a final nuclear agreement on Tuesday, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Zarif thanked all those who played a role in resolving the Iran-West nuclear standoff, including the Austrian government and IAEA.

"We, the EU foreign policy chief and the foreign ministers of the Islamic Republic of Iran, China, France, US, Germany, Britain and Russia, welcome the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that guarantees the fully peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program," he said.

He said that Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany) have ratified a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that ensures the path ahead for cooperation.

"The JCPOA includes removal of all sanctions, including banking, financial and energy embargoes," he said.

He said the agreement includes the JCPOA along with five annexes, including one on sanctions and another one on nuclear cooperation.

Zarif said the text will be approved by the UN Security Council in coming days.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran reiterates the peaceful nature of its nuclear program," the foreign minister said.

"What we declare today is not just an agreement, but a good one, which will provide good opportunity for global peace," Zarif added.

"We are committed to fulfill this program in full and ask the IAEA to help us in its implementation, and ask the international community to support us," he stressed.
