Baku, Azerbaijan, May 30
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
The entire region would benefit from Iran ’s nuclear technology, the Islamic Republic president Hassan Rouhani said.
“We will prove to the world that despite the enemies’ claims our nuclear activity is peaceful,” Rouhani added.
The Islamic Republic’s nuclear achievements are in favor of Iranians and the nations of the region as well, the Iranian president said, adding Tehran ’s nuclear program is not against anybody.
Rouhani further said that the nuclear negotiations are a sensitive issue because its success or failure would affect economy, business, value of national currency and every other thing in the country.
He added that the country’s nuclear negotiators are professional and move within the Islamic Republic’s red lines, Iran ’s official IRNA news agency reported May 30.
Rouhani also slammed the conservatives due to their harsh criticism of the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif over nuclear talks.
No one has right to insult Iran ’s FM, Rouhani said, adding the administration will inform people about the hard mission of the nuclear negotiators after the negotiations.
He said that the issue of nuclear negotiations does not pertain to only this or that political party but one that involves the whole nation and system.
Tensions rose between Zarif and Iran ’s hardliner MP Mahdi Kouchakzadeh in Iran ’s parliament during a closed-door session on May 24, as Kouchakzadeh called Zarif a "traitor."
Zarif and deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqchi attended the closed-door session to brief the MPs on the ongoing nuclear talks with the P5+1(the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany).
Iran and the P5+1 reached a mutual understanding on Tehran ’s nuclear program in the Swiss city of Lausanne on April 2. The parties have agreed to finalize a comprehensive deal on Tehran ’s nuclear program by the end of June.
