Iran trusts JCPOA, not US

YASOUJ, Aug. 14 (MNA) – President Hassan Rouhani has told a group of people in southern province of Kohgiluyeh and Boyerahmad economic opportunities provided by JCPOA have been huge.

Mr. Rouhani is in a provincial visit, this time to a southern province of Kohgiluyeh and Boyerahmad. He told the crowd welcoming him to the province that the nuclear deal would not be possible except support lavished by the nation and the sage advices by Leader of the Islamic Revolution; Rouhani paid tribute to fallen soldiers of the province in War with Iraq in 1980s as defenders of the glory of the country. 

Rouhani’s address took an economic turn, mainly to eulogize the achievements and opportunities reached at by JCPOA, a boon he believed would help the government in making more optimistic estimates in economic growth of 4.4 per cent.

Rouhani also said that his government in July 14 2013 was subject to the benevolence of the nation and with humility and honor accepted forming the cabinet and serve this great nation. He cited some of difficulties when he assumed the position as sanctions crippling the economy, with a negative growth of 6.8 per cent already besetting the economic environment and warding off foreign investors and isolating the country further. Rouhani told people in Yasouj that his cabinet worked through thick and thin step-by-step to bring the economy to a terra firma where the economy would wait to see a growth of 5 per cent per annum.

Mr. Rouhani’s eulogies went on to cite frequenting by European and Asian delegations, economic as well as trade, to Tehran in the hope of clinching lucrative deals with a great market of consumers who had been inaccessible in times of sanctions. He was rejoiced to say that 150 economic and 160 political delegations had arrived in Tehran.

He told the gathering that some countries in the region had been enraged by the deal. However, he ensured the cheering crowd that Iran exported more and more barrels of oil despite the hostility and restrictions still biting country’s capacities to do trade with the world.

Rouhani also touched upon a painful issue which his cabinet had great difficulties in addressing, namely, unemployment. He instilled a wave of hope to the welcoming people that a working economy would not let nation’s capable young labor force and university graduates search employment in vain in a job market systematically flawed.

His closing remarks was reiteration of his previous position regarding the JCPOA and which was also a catch phrase of the Leader, that, Iran would trust the JCPOA, however, would not trust the US, the subject of much vilification as the major impediment in the true implementation of the deal.
