Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif praised the nation for supporting the negotiators engaged in talks with the major powers on a final deal to resolve the long-running dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program.

“We always feel at the negotiating table that if it had not been for the people’s resilience against pressure, we would have not been able to put up resistance and insist on the nation’s views,” IRNA quoted the chief nuclear negotiator as saying on Saturday.

He pointed to the high voter turnout in the 2013 presidential election and said, “The presence proved to the world that the Iranian people will not withdraw support for the (ruling) establishment under threats, sanctions and pressure.”
