Iran sanctions to be lifted one after another, says Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday said the sanctions against Iran will be lifted one after another with the conclusion of the recent agreement between Tehran and the world powers.

Rouhani made the remark in an address to a large crowd of people in the western Iranian city of Hamedan, Press TV reported.

The president said his administration has reached a point where it had the anti-Iran sanctions annulled at the very institution and by the very group that had imposed them in the first place.

Rouhani said Tehran has succeeded in not only having the sanctions resolutions annulled — without even a moment of having implemented them — but also in establishing its right to uranium enrichment “not just as a slogan but through UN resolutions”.

He was referring to Resolution 2231 (2015), which was unanimously approved by the UN Security Council on July 20 to endorse the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 countries.

Representatives and nuclear experts from Iran and the P5+1 group — the US, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany — succeeded in finalising the text of the agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on July 14.
