Tehran, Iran, August 2
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
Rouhani said what has been gained through the nuclear deal is far greater than what was expected two years ago when he set out for the nuclear talks.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has just started a live address on the national TV (IRIB) on August 2 about the recent deal on the country's nuclear program as well as his administration's economic plans.
Rouhani said that the mechanisms of nuclear deal have been devised to make sure Iran will not be the loser in the deal, he stated. He called the agreement a win-win deal.
"Global concerns that Iran has been aiming to make a nuclear bomb and that the deal has postponed Iran's developing of a nuclear bomb for one year are fantasy", he said, adding Iran has not been seeking a nuclear bomb in the first place.
In reaction to domestic concerns about how reliable the 5+1 group would be, he said Iran has tested the group's reliability during the past two years, adding he expected the group to remain faithful to the deal in the next 10 years envisioned for the implementation of the the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Iran and P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany).achieved the nuclear deal on July 14.
Through the deal, world powers have tried to intensify International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) monitoring over Iran's nuclear activities, while Iran has pursued the removal of sanctions on its economy.
