Upon the JCPOA accord, around 1000 billion tomans were spent on equipment purchase and 1000 billion more tomans were allocated to construction development. The 4 main common concerns of YATA entity and civil aviation, encompass security, safety, performance and economic considerations of which the most important aspect is the flight and passenger safety. On the sidelines of the event Dr. Salehi briefly pointed out remarks concerning the recent U.S political behavior as the following:
-The unilateral approach adopted by the U.S government while being contrary to accepted international norms is merely based on unfair exertion of pressure which is referred to as the logic of power. This approach besides concerning JCPOA, affects the integrity of other international conventions and accords, including Security Council resolutions. In this kind of situation, adoption of alertness and rationality in foreign policy is very essential. We follow the reasoning of power and understanding as opposed to unfair unilateral exertion of illogical pressure.
