President Rouhani: We Achieved Our Goals in Nuclear Talks
Thu Aug 20, 2015 11:09:23

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday hailed the recent conclusion of nuclear talks between Tehran and world powers, saying that the country achieved its goals in the talks.

Speaking in a cabinet meeting in Tehran, Rouhani said Iran managed to realize its major objectives in the important negotiations.

He went on to say that the termination of financial, bank, transport, and other economic sanctions was among the most important goals Iranian negotiators managed to accomplish.

It is a “great and outstanding” achievement that a country manages to make the United Nations Security Council nullify its previous resolutions against it and get its enrichment right ratified by UNSC members, he added.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14 reached a conclusion on a lasting nuclear agreement that would terminate all sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear energy program after coming into force.

The 159-page deal has its own opponents and proponents both in Iran and the other countries that are parties to the JCPOA, including the US.

While the United Nations Security Council has adopted a resolution to endorse the deal, the text of the document needs to be ratified by both Iran's Parliament and the US Congress.
