Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei has hailed the nuclear deal sealed between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.
Imam Khamenei on Sunday thanked Iran’s negotiating team, describing their achievement as “praiseworthy,” Press TV reported.
In response to President Hassan Rouhani’s congratulatory message, the Leader said the achievement could serve as a “basis for future prudent measures.”
Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei called on the Iranian negotiators to continue to resist any excessive demands in the future.
In a televised message to the Iranian people, Rouhani also hailed the interim nuclear deal between Iran and the Sextet, saying that a final comprehensive agreement will lead to the removal of all international and unilateral sanctions imposed against Iran.
After more than four days of intensive negotiations, Iran and the Sextet – the US, Britain, Russia, France, China and Germany – sealed an interim deal in Geneva in the early hours of Sunday.
The agreement paves the way for final resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program.
