Int’l deals with Iran worth over $40bn in post-JCPOA era: Iranian VP
Iran’s trade agreements with the foreign countries are worth over 40 billion dollars in the post-July 2015 deal era, first vice-president said in this southern Iranian city on Saturday evening.
More than 30 billion dollars of those contracts have turned into bank-to-bank transfer agreements, Eshaq Jahangiri said at a provincial meeting in Shiraz.
The Iran Deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), should be used for the country’s development, said Jahangiri, adding that the foreign resources should be utilized to support the projects and make investments in Iran
On the US measures against implementation of the JCPOA, Jahangiri said a person has taken office in Washington who, according to the Americans themselves, is mentally imbalanced and should see a doctor
US President Donald Trump has already withdrawn from the Paris Agreement. His withdrawal is considered by the world analysts as another example for Trump’s easily-changing personality which has been slammed by global leaders and has created mistrust between the Americans towards the White House.
Referring to the US lack of commitment to the international deal between Iran and six world powers: US, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany, the veep said Washington’s unfaithfulness [to the international agreements] is clear.
Talking of the regional developments, Jahangiri said Iran, in a critical region, is playing a leading role in solving the regional problems.
Even the US, despite its hostilities towards Iran, well knows that Tehran has the last word on the regional questions, the official added.
Touching upon the social issues, the vice-president said criticism and [constructive] protests in a society are the fruits of democracy.
Jahangiri flew to Shiraz on Saturday to inaugurate several development projects in the southern Iranian province of Fars.
