Iranian President: Israel Shuddered by N. Agreement
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani described the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers as a victory for all nations, and said Israel is the only regime which is angry and frightened by the agreement.
Addressing the Iranian people in the Western part of Tehran province on Thursday, Rouhani said that during the past three decades after the Islamic Revolution’s victory in Iran, Israel grew disappointed and dreadful three times; first, right after the victory of the Islamic Revolution and ruling of the Islamic Republic in Iran (1979); second, after the end of Iraqi-imposed war against Iran (1988); and today, after the agreement between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) in Vienna (July 14).
“Today, you observe that the only regime which is crying out since morning to night is the usurper Zionist regime,” he said.
“Today all the regional nations and the great Iranian nation, except the usurper Zionist regime and the American warmongers, are happy with this big agreement,” Rouhani underlined.
Iran and the world powers reached a final agreement in Vienna on July 14 to end a 13-year-old nuclear standoff.
A week later, the UNSC unanimously endorsed a draft resolution turning into international law the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) of Iran and the G5+1.
After striking the agreement, President Rouhani said his country has achieved all its four goals.
President Rouhani said his nation started talks with the world powers in a bid to remove all sanctions while maintaining its nuclear program and nuclear progress as two main goals.
All sanctions, including the financial, banking, energy, insurance, transportation, precious metals and even arms and proliferation sanctions will be, not suspended, but terminated according to the Tuesday agreement as soon as the deal comes into force, he said, adding that Iran will only be placed under certain limited arms deal restrictions for five years.
Meantime, Iran will inject gas into its highly advanced IR8 centrifuge machines, continue its nuclear research and development, and keep its Arak Heavy Water Facility and Fordo and Natanz enrichment plants under the agreement, he said, elaborating on Iran’s gains.
Another goal, Rouhani said, was taking Iran off Chapter Seven of the UN Charter, “and we did it”.
Yet, he said Iran will scrutinize implementation of the agreement to see if the opposite side would comply with its terms.
He stressed that certain powers have left a dark record in complying with their undertakings under previous agreements, and Iran will keep a watchful eye on powers’ compliance with the agreement.
Rouhani underlined that Iran will remain fully loyal to the terms of the agreement as long as powers comply with their undertakings.
