Capitals to Review Conclusion of Iran Nuclear Talks in 15-Day Period: MP
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – If Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France, Germany) reach a conclusion over the text of a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program, the capitals of the seven countries will have 15 days to review that document before it turns into a final deal, an Iranian MP said.
“After conclusion of the negotiations, which may be announced within the next hours, capitals of the 7 countries engaged in the nuclear talks will be given a 15-day period to study the conclusion of the talks and express their views, while the final agreement will be reached if it receives the (Iranian) establishment’s final confirmation,” Mohammad Dehqan told reporters on Monday.
According to Dehqan, a member of the Iranian parliament’s presiding board, endorsement of the conclusion of the talks by the capitals will mark a “milestone in the Islamic Republic of Iran history.”
Iran and the Group 5+1 (alternatively known as the P5+1 or E3+3) have been engaged in diplomatic talks over the past 22 months to nail down a historic deal that would end more than a decade of impasse over Tehran's nuclear energy program.
Diplomats have announced that a final nuclear deal will require the United Nations Security Council to adopt a new resolution that would terminate all UN nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran in the past.
Meanwhile, Dehqan said plans for that UNSC resolution, immediately after conclusion of the talks, “has been canceled”, adding, “Adoption of the (UN) Security Council resolution has been postponed until after the capitals’ confirmation.”
