Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif assured the business community that the future of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action–the formal name of the nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers in 2015- is safe after the US pullout.
Addressing representatives of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture on Sunday, Zarif said the key to benefit from the multilateral agreement lies in a new partnership between Iranian and European small- and medium-sized enterprises. 
The foreign minister revealed that as part of Iran's negotiations with European partners, they will introduce 5,000 SMEs for participating in joint ventures with domestic companies. 
Zarif saw this as a good omen for Iran's "real" private sector to seize the opportunity to leave their bigger semi-state rivals behind.
