Majlis approves urgency bill on JCPOA

Majlis approves urgency bill on JCPOA

Iranian lawmakers passed a single-urgency motion that allows the administration to voluntarily implement the July 14 nuclear agreement under certain conditions.

According to the motion signed by 75 lawmakers, the Iranian administration has to actively pursue the policy of global nuclear disarmament and participate in all international, legal and diplomatic efforts in this regard, Press TV reported.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is based on cooperation and mutual respect between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, the motion states, adding that any pressure and threat against Iran would lead to a review of bilateral cooperation.

The motion stipulates that the Iranian administration should stop its voluntary activities and adopt reciprocal measures to restore the rights of the Iranian nation in case the other side violates the terms of the agreement, particularly on the Western sanctions.

According to the motion, any visit by inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should be conducted in line with international regulations and Iran’s national security.

The document also urges the administration to fully protect Iran’s classified military and security information and prohibit any type of IAEA access to the country’s military sites under the pretext of implementing the JCPOA.

The bill permits government to implement the JCPOA voluntarily based on the Supreme National Security Council resolutions.

The lawmakers urged the Iranian executive branch and the Armed Forces to boost the country’s defense capabilities to protect Iran's national security and interests.

Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani hailed the Majlis Special Committee on JCPOA for its hard efforts to clarify different aspects of it, IRNA reported.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia – plus Germany reached an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program in the Austrian capital Vienna in mid-July.
