But it is important that we tap the current atmosphere to the benefit of our country’s development”.

Dr Rouhani also said that any attempt to create division or stop the country from developing is betraying national interests and an example of infiltration. “JCPOA means removing obstacles and we should gain momentum in this environment and try to achieve growth” he said.
