Tehran, Feb 27, IRNA – Provisional Friday Prayers Imam of Tehran referring to upcoming final steps towards a comprehensive nuclear agreement with six world powers appreciated President Hassan Rouhani for his wise management of the negotiations.

Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi meanwhile thanked President Rouhani for expressing clear and precise stands during his recent visit of the holy Qom City about the Iranian nuclear program and the nuclear negotiations.

‘We thank the Almighty Allah that the respected president in Qom and during his meetings with the prominent clerics in that city… declared clear and promising stands and announced that Iran will not yield to humiliation, shutting down (of nuclear facilities) and continuation of the sanctions,’ said Seddiqi addressing thousands of Tehrani worshippers.

He said that His Eminence the Leader of Revolution in his last address about the nuclear negotiations stated that the westerners are used to lengthy bargaining as it has been 60 years now that Palestine is occupied by the usurper Zionist regime, but they are still negotiating while Israel, too, is busy destroying and those useless talks keep going one and on and on.

‘His Eminence added that if that is going to be the case, we insist that the main points and the minute details need to be resolved all together; but they intend to keep the sanctions in effect and block the path for our country’s progress and prosperity, which is not acceptable as all sanctions need to be lifted and annulled together,’ he said.

Seddiqi reiterated that the westerners are not allowed to interfere in Iran’s internal affairs and neither allowed to define the quantity of the fuel that we can produce.

‘Such blackmailing was a characteristic of the colonial era, not the Islamic Revolution’s period in which Iran is conquering the peaks of scientific progress,’ he stressed.

Hojjatoleslam Seddiqi added that the Arak Heavy Water Reactor must be activated; the Fordo Site needs to continue its activities and the extent of enrichment must not be restricted as these are our people’s demands and they will not suffice in getting anything less.
