Rouhani: Nation's decision to sign nuclear deal precise

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Sanandaj, July 26, IRNA -- Labeling Iran as a threat for international security was in world powers' agenda, but nation's precise decision to sign nuclear deal annulled that decision and return of hazard atmosphere to Iran is impossible, said President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday.

Rouhani made the comment in a meeting with Kurdistan province economic activists and industrialists arguing that the nuclear agreement was the result of 22 months of tough and complicated negotiations which had lots of marginal difficulties.

'The margins of the negotiations were at times more important than the main theme of them and some regional countries spent tremendous amounts of money to lead the nuclear negotiations into a big defeat,' said the president.

Rouhani said that Iran was from the very beginning after signing a win-win deal and now the Iranian nation should be able to see the image of a bright future ahead of it.

The Iranian president argued that a country that is capable of making yellow cake from what it excavates from its mines, turn it into uf6 and turn the uf6 into 3.5% enriched uranium initially and into 20% enriched uranium later on could have from the beginning manufactured the nuclear weapons as well if it really intended to do so.

'The world powers do know these things, but all the same they claim today that they managed to block the path for Iran's manufacturing of nuclear weapons, or to delay its process,' said President Rouhani.

He added that the thoughtful analysts in the world as well as the world powers know well that Iran due to ethical reasons and a decree issued by our Supreme Leader neither intended to manufacture nuclear bombs in the past, nor will ever do so in the future.
