Deputy FM defends Iran’s rights in nuclear deal

IRNA – Iran’s top nuclear negotiator on Sunday stressed defending nation’s rights secured in the nuclear deal which was reached between the Islamic Republic and G5+1 (US, UK, Russia, China, France plus Germany) in 2015.

Addressing local people to mark the 39th anniversary of Islamic Revolution, Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araqchi underlined Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal and said that the Islamic Republic ‘will not withdraw one iota from its legitimate rights.’

Araqchi said that during the nuclear talks, the nation did not give in to enemies’ excessive demands.

Tehran seeks peace and stability in the region, he added referring to Iran’s powerful stance in the West Asia region.

Iran will continue the fight against terrorist groups and arrogant powers, Araqchi added.

Millions of people in Tehran and thousands of other cities and towns all across Iran poured to the streets on Sunday to mark the 39th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

Iranian people through a popular revolution toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, ending 2,500 years of absolute monarchy in the country.
