ANKARA - Iran's president on Thursday welcomed conditional approval of a nuclear agreement with six major powers by the country's top authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's state television reported.
In a letter to Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani said his government will fully implement the agreement while observing the leader's guidance and considerations.
"The Supreme National security Council will closely monitor the other party regarding fulfilling its commitments ... We will make appropriate decision for suitable reaction as well," Rouhani said in his letter.
Khamenei on Wednesday approved the historic agreement between Iran and the United States, France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China on July 14, which was aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear work in exchange for removing sanctions that have isolated the country and harmed its economy.
But Khamenei said the implementation of the agreement should be "tightly controlled and monitored" because of some "ambiguities" in it. Tehran should not give up core elements of its atomic program until issues like Iran's past military dimension (PMD) were settled, he said.
