Iranian MPs to Discuss Report on JCPOA Implementation
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission plans to hold talks over the Foreign Ministry’s report on the implementation of the July 2015 nuclear deal with world powers over the past three months, a senior MP said.
Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Hossein Sobhaninia, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, pointed to a report from the Foreign Ministry on the status of implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the comprehensive 159-page deal on Tehran’s nuclear program, over the past three months, saying the report will be discussed in a meeting of the commission in early May.
He said the report is to be read out in the commission’s meeting on May 1 with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif or a member of Iran’s negotiating team with the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) in attendance.
Sobhaninia further emphasized that after the meeting, the commission will submit a report on the JCPOA implementation to the presiding board of the parliament.
Tehran and the Group 5+1 on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the JCPOA.
The accord took effect on January 16, terminating all nuclear-related sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
According to a law that requires the Iranian administration to safeguard the nation’s achievements and nuclear rights, the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has a duty to monitor “the proper implementation” of the JCPOA, and is required to submit a report on the issue to the presiding board of the parliament every six months.
