Cabinet Briefed on Vienna Talks

Cabinet Briefed on Vienna Talks

President Hassan Rouhani described nuclear talks between Iran and major powers as an "unprecedented effort in the history of diplomacy," noting that the next generations will be proud of the deal struck in Vienna on Tuesday.  

"The deal which was achieved will go down in history and the future children of this land will be proud of it," Rouhani said during a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, IRNA reported.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Atomic Energy Organization of Iran director Ali Akbar Salehi, who were engaged in nuclear negotiations, briefed the cabinet on the latest round of talks in Vienna.   

The president also said, "My assessment is that the agreement has turned a new page in Iranian history and has changed a misconception about the Islamic Republic of Iran which arisen since the (1979 Islamic) Revolution in the West and among their high-ranking political officials," the president said.

He described the nuclear negotiators as "committed" and "skilled", stressing that "if the Leader's guidelines at the highest level are available, the best government is in office and the president enjoys firm resolve, but the negotiating team are not professional, undoubtedly the goal cannot be achieved."    

Comments by officials, lawmakers, experts and international officials have been covered in pages 1, 2, 4 and 6.
