Iran's nuke deal to increase nuclear activities within country
Baku, Azerbaijan, July 15
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran nuclear deal will change paradigms in international relations, because a developing country has made room for itself among the developed countries, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, said.
Talking to reporters after returning to Tehran from nuclear talks, Salehi said the nuclear agreement will increase nuclear activities in the country.
"In fact, the national nuclear industry will enter a new phase which will be justified both in terms of costs and benefits," Iran's ISNA news agency quoted Salehi as saying on July 15.
"We underwent huge costs in the past, because we were alone in this industry and did not cooperate with others. With this agreement, we will start the commercialization phase of the nuclear industry," he added.
"History will show how this achievement will affect our country and the global community, as well."
A final agreement was reached on Iran's disputed nuclear program in the Austrian city of Vienna on July 14 after some 22 months of talks between Iran and the P5+1 (five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany).
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said that the nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers has opened a new page, the basis of which is based on resolving global disputes in simpler ways.
