Shamkhani says JCPOA secures national interests

Tabriz, East Azarbaijan Prov., Aug 16, IRNA – Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA) secures Iran’s national interests.

Speaking in a local ceremony, Shamkhani noted that the SNSC would do its best to observe the JCPOA.
Studying the JCPOA is at its final phases, Shamkhani added.
Iran’s present nuclear capability is the result of reliance on native scientists, he underlined.
Shamkhani said that Iran’s native nuclear science is its bargaining chip in nuclear talks.
On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 countries finalized the text of the agreement, dubbed the JCPOA, in the Austrian city of Vienna.
Under the JCPOA, limits will be put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all economic and financial bans against the Islamic Republic.
The UNSC on July 20 unanimously adopted a draft resolution turning the JCPOA into an international law. All 15 members of the UN body voted for the draft UN resolution in New York, setting the stage for the lifting of the Security Council sanctions against Iran.
