The foreign minister said now that the nuclear deal has been achieved, Iran can take steps toward developing commercial enrichment and acquiring the most advanced nuclear knowhow.

"We will rely on our nuclear program and the knowledge and technology developed by our nuclear scientists and make use of the world's latest technological achievements to progress toward commercial enrichment and an advanced nuclear program equipped with the most sophisticated technology," Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters.

He made the remarks upon arrival in Tehran on Wednesday, a day after he read out a joint statement released by Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany) in Vienna to announce the final nuclear deal.

The accord will remove sanctions against Iran in exchange for it agreeing to subject its nuclear program to temporary constraints.

"As the Leader of the Islamic Revolution demanded, all economic, financial and banking sanctions will be terminated the day the deal comes into force," Zarif was quoted by IRNA as saying.

"Next week, the United Nations Security Council will recognize the enrichment program of a developing country," an achievement that could not have become possible without the nation's support and resistance against "sanctions, pressure and bullying", he noted.

"(The Iranian people) stand against sanctions but demonstrate heroic flexibility when offered dialogue (to resolve conflicts) and treated with respect."

Stressing that all the red lines outlined by the Leader and other officials of the establishment have been respected in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, he said, "A glance at the document reveals that all our considerations are clearly reflected in it."
