Leader hails Iranian negotiating team

TEHRAN, Jul. 15 (MNA) – Iran’s Leader Ayat. Khamenei has expressed his gratitude to the Iranian nuclear negotiating team for its honest and diligent efforts in bringing the talks with the 5+1 to a conclusion.

The Leader made the remarks in an annual meeting on the occasion of holy month of Ramadan with president and Cabinet members on Tuesday, the day Iran and the six states reached a conclusion to over-a-decade talks over Tehran's nuclear program.

President Rouhani, for his part, thanked Ayatollah Khamenei for extending his support and blessing to the Iranian nuclear negotiating team of his administration.

The president further expressed hope that the nuclear deal reached in Vienna would prepare the ground for relieving pressure on Iran and invalidating contrived allegations made by Iran’s enemies.

He also hoped that the nuclear deal sealed on Tuesday in Vienna would open new doors to national progress.

Noting the expansion of ties with neighboring countries and the continuation of nuclear negotiations as his administration’s achievements in foreign policy, President Rouhani added “under circumstances in which the region is gripped by conflict and terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue extending its support to regional countries which are struggling with the issue of terrorism.”

President Rouhani addressing the nation and the region just following the historic deal between Iran and the E3/EU+3 announced July 14 said that the nuclear deal has cancelled all six UN resolutions against Iran.

The Iranian president further stressed on Tuesday that the Iranian nation has always lived up to its promise, and will continue abiding by its commitments in regard to the nuclear agreement.  

After 18 days of intensive talks in the Austrian capital of Vienna, Iran and the 5+1 group of countries - the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany - reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which will put limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

The 159-page conclusion will be presented to the Security Council, which will adopt a resolution in seven to 10 days making the JCPOA an official document.
