Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Tuesday said the Geneva nuclear deal broke the sanction regime which had been unfairly imposed on his nation. Rouhani made the remarks two days after Iran and the six major powers agreed to start implementing their landmark nuclear deal from January 20th, Xinhua reported. The Geneva deal means the six major powers are yielding to the demands of Iran, Rouhani said, addressing a gathering in Iran's city of Ahvaz. "By the Geneva deal, the world accepted the peaceful nuclear technology of Iran, which has been achieved through the hard work of the young Iranian students," the president added.
