Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said on Monday his administration managed to undermine the foundations of sanctions by signing the nuclear deal with the world powers.

Addressing a provincial administrative meeting n the southwestern Iranian city of Yasuj, he said his government was after removing the foundations of the sanctions not the sanctions themselves.

Iranian president Sheikh Hasan RouhaniHe said it managed to get to its objective through signing the the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
He said Iran could have accelerated the pace of the negotiations and got results in a more rapid manner but was seeking another goal, IRNA news agency quoted Rouhani as saying.

The Iranian president went on to elaborate on the “basics of the sanctions” which also included the United Nations Security Council’s anti-Iran resolutions and the possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran's civil nuclear program.

This, he said, meant the world believed Iran was engaged in activities to build atomic bombs.

Rouhani noted  that now in the post-JCPOA time Iranian people are suffering less from health issues which were due to purchase of non-standard agricultural products or medications.

He further said that the military sanctions against Iran have now been removed and Iran is capable of purchasing any kind of arms.

Rouhani said today Iran is keeping with its nuclear activities in places like Natanz, Arak, Isfahan and Fordow and simultaneously has got the world to recognize its nuclear activities and even cooperate with Iran.
