FM: Iran to carry out JCPOA in compliance with Leader’s views

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif asserted that implementation of a nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers will take place in conformity with the guidelines set by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

Addressing an open session of the Iranian parliament on Monday, Zarif said that from now on, everybody in Iran will be at the same front to make constant efforts to implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the best way, in compliance with the Leader’s views.

The minister noted that the nuclear accord should be implemented in such a way as to bring the highest degree of benefits to the Iranian nation, the Islamic resistance front and Iran’s allies and proponents.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany – also known as the P5+1 or E3+3)  on July 14 reached a conclusion on a 159-page nuclear agreement that would terminate all sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear energy program after coming into force.

The agreement was officially adopted on October 18, and is going to take effect within the next two months.

On October 21, Ayatollah Khamenei in a letter to President Hassan Rouhani highlighted nine main points that the administration will need to take note of regarding the course of implementing the JCPOA.
