Iran’s Parliament Receives Quarterly Report on JCPOA

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has given a written report to the parliament on the process of implementation of a comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers over the past three months.

The parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has received 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, Nozar Shafiee, a member of the commission, told Tasnim on Sunday.

The report contains information about different aspects of the JCPOA, including the nuclear commitments, removal of the sanctions and the so-called PMD (possible military dimensions) in Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.

The report underscores that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has passed a resolution in December 2015 that closed the case on PMD once and for all.

Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the JCPOA.

The accord took effect in January, terminating all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran.

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.
