Senior MP Stresses Leader’s Key Role in Success of Iranian Negotiators
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian lawmaker said on Monday that the nuclear deal reached recently between Iran and the six major world powers was the outcome of the guidelines provided by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution for the country’s nuclear negotiators.
“The results of the nuclear negotiations show (the significance of) the guidelines provided by the Supreme Leader and his solution, dubbed as 'heroic flexibility',” Member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mohammad Reza Mohseni Sani told the Tasnim News Agency in the holy city of Mashhad on Monday.
“In line with the Leader's remarks, our team of negotiation has been able to gain result in its efforts to resolve.”
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 in the Swiss city of Geneva.
This comes after Iran and P5+1 (the six major world powers also known as G5+1) reached a six-month deal 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 for “the Iranian nation’s legitimacy in nuclear activities”, adding that the 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.
