Leader Appreciates Iranian Nuclear Negotiators after Geneva Talks
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei thanked and appreciated the Iranian team of nuclear negotiators after more than four days of intensive talks in Geneva over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program resulted in a historic deal.
On Sunday, November 24, Ayatollah Khamenei replied to a letter from President Hassan Rouhani, who earlier briefed the Leader on the latest developments in the negotiations between Iran and the six major world powers over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program in the Swiss city of Geneva.
This comes after Iran and Group 5+1 (the six major world powers also known as P5+1) reached a six-month deal early on Sunday with the aim of ending a decade-long standoff over Tehran’s nuclear program.
In his letter to the Leader, President Rouhani had described Iran’s success in the marathon negotiations as a proof of “the Iranian nation’s legitimacy in nuclear activities”, adding that world powers have admitted that Iran has the right to enrich uranium inside the country.
In reply, Ayatollah Khamenei said in a message posted on the Leader's official website that these achievements deserve gratitude.
“Achievement of what you have written deserves gratitude and appreciation of the delegation in nuclear talks and of other involved individuals, and it would lay the ground for future smart moves,” the Leader said in his message on Sunday.
The Leader also made it clear that such success in the nuclear talks has been achieved by the help of God and the support of the Iranian nation.
Ayatollah Khamenei also underlined that always "resistance against excessive demands” should be regarded as an indicator which sets “the direct line" for the relevant officials in this sector (nuclear issue).
