Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the impact of the removal of sanctions on the economy takes time to appear, FNA reports.

In a press conference in the central province, Zarif said the implementation of the nuclear deal which Iran has reached with six world powers will prepare the ground for implementation of policies on the resistance economy.

He further said full implementation of such a strategy calls for national will, public contribution and precise government planning.

Zarif then described the JCPOA as a social, economic and political opportunity for the country.

By implementation of the JCPOA, the anti-Iran sanctions will be lifted in two to three months, noted the top Iranian diplomat.

However, he added, it will take longer for the country to experience its impacts on Iran's economy.

Zarif arrived in Isfahan on Wednesday evening to open several projects and meet with provincial officials and elites.

The development plans are to be inaugurated by ministers and top officials in different parts of the country coincident with the Government Week, on August 24-30, in Iran.

The Government Week marks the martyrdom anniversary of the former Iranian President Mohammad Ali Rajaie and his Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar who were martyred in a bomb blast 34 years ago by the terrorist Mojahedeen Khalq Organization (MKO).

Iran and the six world powers reached a landmark nuclear agreement on July 14 in the Austrian capital.

Under the JCPOA, limits will be put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all economic and financial bans against the Islamic Republic.

The UNSC on July 20 unanimously adopted a draft resolution turning the JCPOA into an international law. All 15 members of the UN body voted for the draft UN resolution in New York, setting the stage for the lifting of the Security Council sanctions against Iran.
