Rouhani Hails” Glorious Victory: Iran Opens New Chapter in Int’l Relations
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said the Islamic Republic has opened a new chapter in its relations with the world, as Tehran and the six world powers begin implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“We Iranians have reached out to the world… have opened a new chapter in the relations of Iran with the world,” the official IRNA news agency quoted Rouhani as saying.
Iran is “not a threat to any government or nation”. The agreement, he said, “is not a loss for any country”.
“No one suffered any defeat neither in nor out of Iran due to nuclear agreement except for the Zionists, those who are seeking to sow discord within the Islamic Ummah and also extremist lobbies inside the United States,” Rouhani addressed the Iranian parliament.
The Iranian president noted that the official announcement of the implementation of JCPOA has desecuritized Iran’s nuclear case, and has led to removal of the “cruel” sanctions against the Islamic Republic, while establishing the nuclear rights of Iran.
Rouhani added that implementation of JCPOA will pave the way for Iran’s economy to be reintegrated into the global economy.
The Iranian president also stated that Iran reached the agreement with the world through “professional and complicated” negotiations while maintaining its dignity and strength.
“Implementation of JCPOA does not harm any country. Iran’s friends are happy and its rivals must not be worried. We are not a threat against any government and nation,” President Rouhani emphasized.
“While being fully ready to safeguard Iran’s sovereignty, we are the messenger of peace, stability and security in the region and across the world,” he said.
