President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that the advice of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to Iranian nuclear negotiating team accounted for significant achievements in nuclear talks.
Designation of the current Iranian year as Year of ‘Harmony and Unanimity’ by the Supreme Leader has coincided with the significant achievements made by Iran in nuclear fields, he said.
President Rouhani made the remarks in a meeting with a group of cabinet ministers and executive managers Saturday morning.
Referring to recent intensive nuclear talks in Lausanne, he said the government welcomed the views of Iranian officials in the three branches of governments and believed that the guidelines of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei led to these achievements.
Nuclear talks at international level were very tough and complicated, he said, adding that the success of the Iranian nuclear team in talks with P5+1 was due to harmony and unanimity of the Iranian people and the efforts of the Iranian nuclear negotiators.
Nuclear talks once again legitimized Iran’s uranium enrichment on its soil, he said, adding that Arak heavy water reactor is to continue its operation with a most updated technology and so are other nuclear installations in Fordo and Natanz.
Sitting with six world powers at the negotiating table to defend the country’s rights should be considered as a great achievement, he said.
Final deal will also ensure a promising situation for exercising resistance-based economy in the country as world powers have reached this conclusion that their continuation of sanctions would never bear any fruit, said President Rouhani.
