Iran’s Parliamentary Commission Releases Report on JCPOA
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian parliamentary commission tasked with scrutinizing the finalized text of a comprehensive nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers released its final report on the accord on Sunday.
Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, rapporteur of the commission, read out the final report at an open session of the parliament on Sunday morning.
The parliamentary commission has prepared the report after 170 hours of sessions and several meetings with experts, members of the Iranian team of nuclear negotiators, including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his deputies, and even with Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano.
The report features various topics pertaining to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), including legal affairs, economic sanctions, defense, security, nuclear issues, research and development, culture, politics, and society.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14 reached a conclusion on the 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 the other countries that are parties to the JCPOA, particularly the US.
