Tehran - FNA
Iranian President's Chief of Staff Mohammad Nahavandian underlined that different states have shown enthusiasm for economic and trade interactions with Iran after the country and the world powers struck a final nuclear agreement.
"Now many countries have come to the conclusion that the unnecessary and fabricated crisis on Iran's nuclear program was a big hurdle on the way of their benefiting from Iran's high economic and trade capacities," Nahavandian said in a meeting with State Secretary at the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) Yves Rossier in Tehran on Wednesday.
He said that removal of all financial and economic sanctions imposed against Iran shows Iran's positive economic role in the world, adding, "All international powers have realized Iran's role during the nuclear talks quite well."
Iran and the world powers reached a final agreement in Vienna on July 14 to end a 13-year-old nuclear standoff.
After the agreement, the UN Security Council on Monday unanimously endorsed a draft resolution turning into international law the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Iran and the 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) group of countries over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
All 15 members of the UNSC voted for the draft UN resolution in New York, setting the stage for the lifting of Security Council sanctions against Iran.
The text of the draft UN resolution calls for the “full implementation” of the Vienna agreement “on the timetable established,” and urges UN member countries to facilitate the process.
