Deputy FM: JCPOA achievement of all Iranian nation

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 10, IRNA -- Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said that achievements of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) belong to the whole Iranian nation and as long as the public power is maintained, the country will continue its path strongly and honorably.

Addressing activists of virtual environment in President Rouhani Campaigning Headquarters on Saturday, he referred to terrorist attacks on the Parliament building on Wednesday, saying that Daesh resorts to barbaric terrorism which is too much worse than terrorism itself.

Adopting terrorism signifies abjection, failure, fear and cowardice, he said, noting that shooting randomly at innocent people reveals that they have not reached their objectives.

Blind terrorism sees no way, but killing innocent people and this is a catastrophe which is repeated in Iraq and Syria every day, Araqchi said.

If it was not for Iran's powerful presence in Syria and Iraq, terrorist groups such as Daesh should be fought at home, he said.

"We thank God JCPOA have had achievements for the country in various fields such as health sector," he said, noting that in times of sanctions western companies refused to provide Iran with medicine although it was not included in the list of banned goods.

But in the wake of JCPOA, medicines are bought from the main companies, eliminating middlemen as well as avoiding buying fake medicines, he said.

Araqchi, also head of Headquarters for Pursuing Implementation of JCPOA, noted that the nuclear deal ensured Iran's indisputable right to nuclear energy and removed all nuclear-related sanctions.

JCPOA is the achievement of the Iranian nation which tolerated all sanctions and shortcomings and got the enemies disappointed with their sanctions, he said, noting that that was resistance of the people that brought the six world powers to the negotiating table.
