Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 16

By Fatih Karimov, Khalid Kazimov – Trend:

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has called the closure of the PMD (possible military dimensions to Tehran’s nuclear program) file a “political victory”.

He made the remarks in an address to the nation aired live by state TV channel IRINN Dec. 15.

President Rouhani congratulated the nation over the closure of the PMD, saying “yesterday’s achievement was not just a legal or technical achievement.”

He said that yesterday it was proved that the Islamic Republic was honest towards its nation and the world.

The International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors, with a view to pave a way for implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), adopted a resolution Dec. 15 bringing an end to a 12-year probe into Tehran’s nuclear program to certify that the Islamic Republic’s nuclear activity is peaceful – a key step towards lifting international sanctions on Iran.

Iran expects the deal to be implemented within the coming month, which will enable the country to trade through international financial systems, to receive $100 billion of its frozen assets, as well as resume petroleum trade on international markets.
