Iran's deputy foreign
minister Abbas Araghchi said the country could generate the revenue thanks to implementation
of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) back in January 2016.
He said the landmark deal has
fully done its work in removing US-led nuclear sanctions on Tehran, IRNA
Iran and the P5+1 group of
countries struck a historic deal on Tehran's nuclear program back in 2015 which
came into force on January 16 2016.
"Today, Iran can sell
its oil and petrochemicals and interact with the world; banking restrictions
have been eased; planes can be purchased and we are experiencing such political
stability that over 70% of the eligible voters participate in elections; these
are facts that have infuriated the US which tries to hinder the deal at
whatever price it can," said the diplomat.
