EghtesadOnline: The economic outcomes of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Iran and Group 5+1(US, UK, France, Russia and China plus Germany) is undeniable, Majlis (parliament) First Vice-Speaker Massoud Pezeshkian said.
Speaking at a local ceremony in Tabriz located in the northeastern province of Azarbaijan on Sunday, the lawmaker noted that due to the nuclear deal, Iran could increase its output from the joint oil and gas fields.
He noted that after the nuclear deal, Iran’s revenues from the joint oil fields with Qatar, Iraq and the UAE experienced 1000 billion tomans($30.6 million) growth, according to IRNA.
Pezeshkian pointed to the US sanctions against Iran after the JCPOA, and said that Washington is a bullying power and “we should stand against it powerfully'.
The nuclear negotiators prevented US President Donald Trump's adventurism towards Iran by inking the JCPOA, he added.
The MP hailed the incumbent government efforts for improvement of healthcare in the country after the removal of sanctions.
He thanked the negotiating team for its efforts during the nuclear talks, adding that they elevated Iran's dignity and pride in the world.
