Tehran, Iran, Aug. 3
By Mehdi Sepahvand -- Trend:
The nuclear deal was a win for the Islamic Republic of Iran, since it abolished the great powers' intention to deprive Iran of its nuclear rights and diluted the harsh demands about annihilation of the Iranian nuclear program to mere restrictions.
There are words spoken by Mohammad Kazem Anbarloui, editor of leading Iranian newspaper Resalat and political director of the Islamic Coalition Party.
All the great world powers had gathered around to say that Iran does not have the right to enrich uranium, stressing that the Islamic Republic had to shut down its entire nuclear program, Anbarloui noted in interview with Trend August 3.
Referring to President Hassan Rouhani's remarks the previous evening that through the nuclear deal, Iran has gained more than what was initially expected, Anbarloui said the deal was a great deed since it marked the first time a developing country stood up to "arrogant" powers and succeeded in achieving its demands.
Rouhani in a live public address on the national TV (IRIB) August 2 said what has been gained through the nuclear deal is far greater than what he had expected two years earlier when he set out for the nuclear negotiations.
The deal also called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was reached between Tehran and P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) 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.
