Baku, Azerbaijan, June 12
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said no new sanctions have been imposed on the Islamic Republic following the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Addressing a parliamentary open session June 12, Zarif said no new nuclear related sanctions have been imposed on Iran but new individuals have been put on an existing list of sanctioned people over Iran's missile program, IRNA news agency reported.
He further added that Iran has not held any talks with the West over its missile program.
During the today's parliamentary open session, Zarif briefed the new parliament on the process of the implementation of JCPOA, foreign investments and economy of resistance.
The foreign minister, however, noted that implementation of JCPOA does not mean that all hostilities and oppositions against the Islamic Republic have been removed.
