Rouhani: Shadow of War Faded Away with Iran Nuclear Deal

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani praised the country’s negotiators for their major role in securing a recent nuclear agreement with six world powers, saying that after months of intensive talks, Iran managed to make the dark “shadow of war” fade away, tasnimnews reports.

“After 23 months of efforts and negotiations by (our) revolutionary sons and heroic diplomats, we reached a point where we were able to make the dark shadow of war ... fade away and restore real security to the country,” Rouhani said in a speech in the western province of Hamedan on Tuesday.

He further pointed to the removal of anti-Iran resolutions adopted by the United Nations Security Council, saying that the country managed to convince the international body to terminate the “wrong, cruel and anti-human rights resolutions”.

The Iranian president went on to say that the Islamic Republic made the world acknowledge its right to enrich uranium on its soil.

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 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), particularly 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.
