JCPOA clear example of constructive interaction, int’l negotiation: President Rouhani

Tehran (ISNA) - Referring to July 14 in Iran’s calendar as a day of dialogue and interaction with the world, the President said, "With the work of the 11th government in lifting the unjust sanctions of the enemies, July 14, 2015 and in the first 100 days of the government’s work, the interim agreement with the P5+1 was achieved, and with this agreement, the continuation of sanctions against Iran was stopped”.

Speaking in a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, President Hassan Rouhani said, "One of the most important goals of the government was for the realisation of the nation's rights in the field of modern technologies, saving the economy, trade and production”.

Stating that with the efforts made and the resistance of the nation, we were able to cancel the UN resolutions against Iran, which were adopted under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, Dr. Rouhani added, "Such a measure is unique or rare in the history of the UN”.

Pointing out that no one thought that the case of the so-called PMD case would be solved or that Iran's enrichment activities would be legally accepted, the President said, "What the 11th government did in this regard is a valuable step in the history of the country in the field of political activities and international relations”.

The President added, "The government took important steps to break the sanctions within 100 days with the people's vote and the promise it made to the people, which led to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)”.

Dr. Rouhani said, "The result of this agreement is that through dialogue and constructive interaction, complex and important issues that exist between our country and major countries and even international organisations can be resolved".

The President added, "As a result of the nuclear negotiations, everyone saw in practice that we were able to increase the sale of oil and condensates from about one million barrels to 2.7 million barrels, and with the revenues gained, we made investments in the country in the water and electricity sectors”.

Dr. Rouhani said, "The fact that we said that both centrifuges can rotate and people's lives can be provided was realized in practice, and during 2016 and 2017, we had a single-digit inflation rate that is unprecedented in the history of the country”.

The president said that the Zionists, regional reactionaries and American extremists and counter-revolutionaries were opposed to the JCPOA from the beginning, adding, "When a politically insane person took office in the United States, he was pressured and told to withdraw from the JCPOA, so that no JCPOA would be left 24 hours later, but this calculation also turned out to be wrong and Trump was under more and more pressure”.

Dr. Rouhani pointed out, "On the other hand, inside and outside the country, it was advertised that the nuclear industry was sold, while this industry remained strong, and the Atomic Energy Organisation has shown in recent months what capabilities it has by enriching 20%  and 60% in a short time”.

“Even if we need it one day, and our reactors need 90% enrichment, we can do it and we can do anything within the framework of peaceful activities,” he said.

The President described the resistance of the people as the main support of the negotiations and said, "Negotiations do not proceed without the resistance of the people, the guidance of the Supreme Leader and with differences and tensions, so we achieved what we needed to achieve through negotiations".

Referring to the problems caused by the economic war for the country's economy and people's livelihood, Dr. Rouhani said, "On average, we should have $60 billion in oil revenue per year, during which time this revenue was greatly reduced and the government managed the country without relying on oil revenues”.

Referring to the inauguration of the new president in the United States, Dr Rouhani said, "This person announced during the election campaign that he would return to the deal if he wins, and in this regard, in the first step, he withdrew the letter that Trump had given to restore UN sanctions, announcing that he intended to return to the deal”.

Noting that we wish everybody respected Articles 60 and 113 of the Constitution, the President said, "If Article 60 of the Constitution was in force, which was damaged in early December, the sanctions would be lifted in March and today things would be different in the country”.

The President added, "The 11th and 12th governments have taken various measures in the field of constructive interaction, including the Astana Process, the agreement in the Caspian Sea, the trilateral negotiation process, the Hormuz Peace Endeavour, and dozens of other cases, and yet there is only talk of the JCPOA for constructive interaction, because it is an important example of constructive interaction”.
