Iranian Parliamentary Commission to Vote on 2nd Biannual Report on JCPOA Implementation
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission plans to study the second biannual report on the implementation of the July 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers, known as JCPOA, the commission’s vice-chairman said.
Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Kamal Dehqani said the biannual report on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), would be read out at a meeting of the commission on Tuesday.
He further emphasized that the nuclear committee of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has drafted the report.
The lawmaker went on to say that in the meeting, the members of the commission will vote on the report and if it is approved, it would be submitted to the presiding board of the parliament and would be read out in an open session of the parliament.
Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, US, Britain, France, and Germany) on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the JCPOA, which took effect in January 2016.
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 been tasked with monitoring “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.
