Mr. Abbas Araghchi is currently responding to many questions in Tehran. He defended the deal as opening many opportunities for Iran’s economy bringing many Europeans to Iran. However, Mr. Araghchi criticized the general trend in the country’s political arena to interpret the deal in line with their parochial partisan interests which he believed indicated a sort of political development and a progress in party system of the country.
In terms of foreign impression the JCPOA had, nuclear negotiator believed the vilified image the international community had from Iran had been shattered by UN resolutions cancelled an now there had been a fresh image of the country as a member of the international community. Araghchi also held that frequenting by the Europeans to Tehran indicated government’s success in opening the space for international companies to find footholds in Iran which was impossible before.
Mr. Araghchi’s defense of the JCPOA reiterated the modest success the government had been citing as an outcome of the deal: small openings for Iran’s financial system to do transactions with global banking system at large. Peaceful cases of uranium enrichment was also cited as groundbreaking where Iran’s nuclear program was not deemed threat to international community.
