Negotiator favors up-or-down vote for nuclear deal in parliament

The deputy foreign minister said there would be no deal if even a single party to the talks rejected the Vienna accord.

The Iranian parliament should go through the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action clause by clause but at the end of the review process hold an up-or-down vote on the deal, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said.

Araghchi, who was a senior member of the negotiating team which represented Iran in talks with P5+1, further said there would be no deal if even a single party to the talks rejected the Vienna accord.

What would happen if the text of JCPOA fails to secure the go-ahead of all seven countries involved in the talks (Iran and P5+1) is anyone’s guess, he said, adding in case of rejection the two sides should decide whether to resume the talks.

He added if the Iranian MPs rejected the deal and told the Foreign Ministry what in the text of the deal prompted them to turn it down, the reason behind their opposition would be raised with the other party. “They [P5+1] will either accept to make corrections, or they may call for the talks to resume.”
