Tehran, Aug 15, IRNA -- Nuclear deal with the world powers stabilized Iran's nuclear rights, said the Iranian President on Tuesday expressing Iran's readiness to 'hold talks on removal of all sanctions.'

'Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) should be preserved,' said President Hassan Rouhani at the Majlis (Parliament) open session this morning stressing that the country should make use of the international agreement.

Addressing the Majlis session held to review the government's plans and give vote of confidence to the proposed ministers, Rouhani noted that Iran's banking transations with the world are being carried out.

The JCPOA does not only include the economic questions, the president noted, adding it first refers to the issue of national security, stabilization of nuclear rights and neutrlizing US fiendish plots against Iran.

Rouhani was reelected as Iranian President for the second term after winning a landmark victory at the May 19 presidential election.
