Baku, Azerbaijan, July 21
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: UN approval of Iran's nuclear program was the country's greatest achievement, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said.
"During talks with the six world powers, it was revealed that nuclear enrichment, research and development would not be stopped. And principally, none of nuclear facilities in Iran will be shut down," Iran's Fars news agency quoted Zarif as saying July 21.
Zarif made the remarks in an open session of the parliament, aiming to outline outcomes of the Vienna nuclear deal.
"The nuclear deal was welcomed by the world. All referred to the deal as the symbol of victory of wisdom and logic against warmongering and termed it as a turning point in the international relations history."
The level of anger among enemies of the Islamic Republic, especially Israel, shows Tehran's power in the region and in the world, Zarif said.
On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 group - the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany - reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in Vienna following 18 days of intensive talks over Tehran's nuclear program.
The UN Security Council on July 20 unanimously adopted a resolution endorsing the JCPOA reached between Iran and the P5+1 on non-proliferation.
