Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif addressed a press conference alongside his Brazilian counterpart Mauro Vieira in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Sunday. In his statement Zarif said the nuclear agreement arrived at over the summer after a series of intensive negotiations, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was a victory of rights over baseless claims.

He added that Iran and Brazil are two developing countries, which have made great efforts in areas such as the development of peaceful nuclear energy. Zarif said Brazil has played a “very active” role as regards the Iranian nuclear issue.

On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 countries – the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany – finalized the text of the JCPOA in the Austrian capital Vienna. Under the JCPOA, limits will be put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all economic and financial bans against the Islamic Republic.

The Brazilian foreign minister, for his part, said Brazil and Iran established their diplomatic relations more than a century ago and are “very good” partners.

“We have had very important bilateral relations ever since their establishment and we came here with a very specific goal to enhance and deepen our bilateral relations and to bring them to even higher levels,” Vieira added.
