Cleric calls for realistic hold with Iran deal
The interim leader of this week’s Tehran Friday prayers commented on the results of vetting and the JCPOA.
Addressing Tehrani worshippers, the interim Friday prayers leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami touched upon a host of issues including the forthcoming elections of Iranian Parliament and Assembly of Experts.
The cleric described the protests to the results of qualification stage of the elections as old as the qualification practice itself and invited those disqualified to keep bound with law.
He also called for a realistic approach to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed in Vienna on July 14, between Iran and 5+1, and condemned too much pessimism or optimism toward the deal.
It is not the biggest victory possible, but something within reach, highlighted the grand cleric after offering gratitude toward President Rouhani and FM Zarif for their efforts.
Ayatollah Khatami condemned those who describe the deal as a defeat and underlined that the result made the evildoers (US and its allies) to respect the rights of Iranians.
