Iran’s Parliament Members Pass Single-Urgency JCPOA Motion
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.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as 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 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.
Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia – plus Germany finalized the text of the JCPOA over Iran’s nuclear program in the Austrian capital of Vienna in mid-July.
Under the JCPOA, limits will be put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all economic and financial bans against the Islamic Republic; Press TV reported.
