Parliament Speaker: Majlis to Give Final Word on JCPOA Next Month
Sat Sep 5, 2015 13:53:46

Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said the finalized text of a nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers is being carefully studied by the lawmakers, noting that results of the scrutiny process will be announced in late September.

Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Saturday upon his arrival from New York, Larijani said a special parliamentary commission has been set up to review the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and is fully examining the case from different aspects.

Formation of that special commission was in line with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s insistence that all pillars of the country, specifically the parliament, have their say on the issue, he added.

A range of the parliament’s commissions are assessing the document, because of its multilateral nature, Larijani explained.

According to the speaker, the commissions will conclude the scrutiny processes in late September, and the lawmakers will make their final decision afterwards.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) finalized the text of the JCPOA in Vienna on July 14.

The accord has subjected the parties to comply with a series of commitments, resulting in the termination of sanctions on Iran in exchange for certain restrictions on Tehran’s nuclear program during a defined period of time.
