Iran state TV: Tehran can resume arms trade

Iran’s state news agency says that an arms embargo on Tehran will be lifted under the nuclear deal, and that from now, the Islamic Republic will be able to import and export weapons on a “case by case” basis.

In addition, sanctions on Iran’s central bank, national airline, shipping lines, national Iranian oil company, and many other institutions and people will be lifted under the deal, and billions of dollars of frozen assets will be released.

Furthermore, no atomic facilities will be dismantled under the deal.

“All of Iran’s nuclear facilities will continue working. None will be stopped or eliminated … Iran will continue enrichment … Research and development on key centrifuges (IR6, IR-5, IR4, IR 8) will continue,” IRNA says, referring to a summary of the deal it obtained.
