Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator described the early adoption of Resolution 2231 positive and said the action taken by the UN Security Council on Monday was among provisions of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached on July 14 in Vienna.
Abbas Araghchi made the remarks at a session of parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Tuesday.
Resolution 2231 on removing anti-Iran sanctions was discussed in the session and Araghchi answered questions of members of the committee.
He said the removal of sanctions, continuation of enrichment, continuation of nuclear activities, cancellation of the UN Security Council resolutions, and removal of Iran from provisions of Chapter 7 of the UN Charter are among important achievements of JCPOA.
Araghchi said the resolution annulled former resolutions, because it envisions new relations with Iran and underlines the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear activities.
