Iran: JCPOA successful model of resolving complicated issues

 IRNA – Big events like Syria, Yemen, Daesh, Saudi Arabia and some changes in the Persian Gulf countries have taken place in the region, First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri said in a gathering here on Thursday afternoon.

‘Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was a great and most complicated task undertaken by Iran and the six world powers, which could be a model for mechanism in internationally complicated issues,’ Jahangiri said.

Iran’s first vice-president said that changes in the international scene cannot solely create a complicated situation for Iran because in a period of time the European envoys left the country and Iran managed to successfully pass through the difficult situation.

Jahangiri reiterated that the new situation involves several factors such as politics, economy and international issues which have combined somehow together to create a new situation for the country.

The first vice-president pointed to quadrilateral bills. and said that one of the bills ‘Financial Action Task Force’ (FATF) is a law to fight money-laundering which was approved by parliament.

Today fighting against money-laundering and illegitimate moneys in Iran that has caused the country to face crisis, is important.

The next bill is Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) and that Iran has always been harmed by terrorism and if there would be no exact framework, Daesh might be financed through financial system.

Jahangiri added that FTAF was approved twice in the supreme council of heads of branches of powers, which is so necessary for the country now.
