Araqchi: Iran acting upon Leader’s guideliens on JCPOA

Tehran, Oct 22, IRNA – Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araqchi said Iran was acting according to viewpoints of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

In an interview with IRIB late Wednesday, Araqchi reiterated that Arak reactor modernization contract is at the final stage.

He said the deal would be binding after the foreign ministers of Iran and 5+1 sign the agreement.

Commenting on the content of the JCPOA document, he said it would be a violation of the nuclear agreement if the US Congress refuses to remove Iran sanctions.

Araqchi underscored that document on modernizing Arak reactor would be inked and six world powers would announce their strong commitment on modernizing the reactor.

‘For instance, China is slated to construct the buildings of the new reactor and the other countries would help in other issues,’ he added.

He also appreciated Supreme Leader for his supports during the nuclear negotiations and approval trends of JCPOA.

He said the US and China will play a pivotal role in modenizing Arak reactor though the other memebrs of the 5+1 too are to cooperate in the project.
