Tehran (ISNA) - An international political expert with referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as the most important priority of Iranian Foreign Ministry said, "Regarding the impacts of lifting sanctions on livelihood of people, undoubtedly this issue will remain the main focus of the Ministry".

An international political expert, Reza Zabihi in an interview with ISNA referred to the priorities and challenges of the Foreign Ministry during current Iranian calendar year and said, "The biggest challenge that is still on the agenda of Iranian Foreign Ministry is the revival of the JCPOA, and it seems that the authorities and negotiators are pursuing this purpose seriously".

"Of course, the revival of the JCPOA is not the only issue; also how to deal with international crises is another important and serious issue with which the Foreign Ministry is facing," he added.

Zabihi declared, "Afghanistan's crisis has had noticeable impacts on Iran since the Taliban took control in August; the crisis has led almost one million Afghan refugees to immigrate to Iran. This issue has raised concerns over resolving Afghanistan's crisis with collaboration with other neighbors and the powers in the region".

Zabihi as an international affairs specialist continued, "Ukraine's crisis is another issue being on the agenda of the Foreign Ministry, and one of the most immediate and important aspects of the issue is refraining the crisis from influencing the revival of the JCPOA".

"Strengthening and expanding the relations between neighboring countries and regional ones; particularly, those Persian Gulf states are other important priorities of the Foreign Ministry, and they should be taken into consideration as well," he said.

"Strengthening these relations is a significant issue on the revival of the JCPOA; therefore, this belief must be promoted by the country that the revival of the JCPOA is not a threat against the Persian Gulf states."
