A new step forward for the Iranian nuclear program. The Tehran parliament approved the agreement reached last July 14 with the so-called 5+1 group (United States, Russia, China, France, United Kingdom and Germany), that is, the five permanent members of the Security Council of the United Nations, plus Berlin. According to the State media, 161 members voted for nuclear power, 59 were against, and 13 abstained. Besides, during the debate, it was requested that the international inspections of Iranian military sites were limited and framed. Members have thus approved the agreement which plans the withdrawal of the current international sanctions against Iran in exchange for Tehran’s commitment not to develop nuclear weapons and to reduce its civil nuclear program.
“Next week will be applied the nuclear agreement, at the end of the 90-days limit, which was part of the agreement – declared the president Rohani -. Once the requirements of the agreement are met, the sanctions will be withdrawn. It should not take more than one or two months before they are removed. Then the country will be in a new condition”. A new economic situation appears thus on the horizon. As the Head of State has often claimed himself, also thanks to the nuclear plan, the country will be able to revive its market and fight poverty.
“With economic development we can create the basis for the fight against terrorism” has stated the president Rowhani, who explained how poverty contributes to form the recruits who later become part of the different terrorist groups. In approximately two years of government and “despite the financial, diplomatic, and commercial sanctions against Iran”, according to the head of State, results have been obtained and will continue to be achieved. During the next few days, the ministers will announce economic reforms that will serve to increase demand, production, and foreign investment.
