Nuclear deal sign of Iran’s engagement policy: Envoy
Doha, Iran's nuclear deal is the clearest sign of Tehran's engagement policies toward the world, the country's ambassador in Qatar said.
The nuclear agreement signed between Iran and major world powers in 2015 is known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Under the deal, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for economic sanctions relief.
'The agreement is a successful international model of alleviating fears and securing the interests of all parties,' Ambassador Mohammad Ali Sobhani said in the ceremony of the 39th Islamic Revolution anniversary in Doha on Sunday evening.
'It can be used as a model for resolving international and regional crises, and establishing a dialogue as a foundation for reaching agreements, as well as joint cooperation for peace, security and fighting terrorism.'
Commenting on the relations between Iran and Qatar, the envoy said that the ties in the past two years have entered a new phase of cooperation, experiencing growth and strength in every sphere, despite the sensitive regional situation.
The development in Iran-Qatar relations shows wisdom, prudence and political will of the leaders of the two countries in expanding bilateral ties, and their emphasis on establishing security, stability, peaceful coexistence and constructive talks, instead of creating differences, escalation, conflict, war, misunderstanding, mistrust and oppressive blockades, the envoy said.
The ceremony was attended by some senior Qatari officials, including Minister of Economy Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, as well as some ambassadors and diplomatic missions.
Iranian people toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, ending 2,500 years of absolute monarchy in the country.
