Iran’s Parliament Speaker Highlights Iran’s Gains in JCPOA

Iran’s parliament speaker on Sunday hailed the finalized text of a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers as a “useful document”, defending the country’s good achievements in the nuclear issue.

Ali Larijani said the Iranian nation’s persistence made the world acknowledge the Islamic Republic’s right to enrich uranium on its soil.

He also referred to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a lasting nuclear accord between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany), as a useful document, urging the critics to refrain from derailing the deal.

“Overall, good achievement has been obtained in the nuclear issue,” Larijani added.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (also known as the P5+1 or E3+3) on July 14 reached a conclusion on a lasting nuclear agreement that would terminate all sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear energy program after coming into force.

The 159-page deal has its own opponents and proponents both in Iran and members of the sextet, particularly the US.

While the United Nations Security Council has adopted a resolution to endorse the deal, the text of the document needs to be ratified by both Iran's Parliament and the US Congress.
