Five high-ranking religious figures in the holy city of Qom on Thursday acclaimed the management of Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif to bring the nuclear Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to a conclusion.
Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, Ayatollah Vahid Khorasani, Ayatollah Safi Golpaygani, Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili, and Ayatollah Javadi Amoli in separate meetings with Zarif said his management was crucial in making the deal between Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers happen.
