Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi underlined that all the western sanctions imposed against Iran should be removed.
Boroujerdi pointed to the pledges made by the Group 5+1 concerning the removal of some Western sanctions against Iran, and said, “Removal of this part of the sanctions is not sufficient at all and from the Parliament’s point of view removal of all sanctions is a serious urgency and what has taken place is among our national demands.”
He reiterated that the unilateral sanctions and resolutions that came into effect by the Americans and then the Europeans outside the UN framework should be removed very soon.
“The reality on the ground shows that the curve of the sanctions has started a downward trend,” the senior legislator said, but meantime added that the partial removal of the sanctions decided during the Geneva talks will also have some good effects for the Iranian economy as well.
Boroujerdi underlined that the Iranian parliament strongly defends Iran’s nuclear rights, and said that the interim conditions to be exercised in the next six months should not be turned into permanent rules.
On Sunday, Iran and the Group 5+1 reached a final deal after days of difficult and intensive negotiations and a decade-long nuclear standoff.
The deal includes removal of a part of the US-led West’s sanctions Iran’s crude supplies, petrochemical exports and part of the banking operations, including the pay-back of Iran’s crude export revenues.
According to the deal, no further sanctions will be imposed against Iran. Iran’s crude sales will be maintained at the current level and Iran’s oil revenues will also be released.
Sanctions on Iran’s petrochemical sector will be completely removed and the sanctions on the country’s auto industry will also be lifted.
Sanctions on imports and exports of gold and precious metals, as well as the ban on the insurance of transportation and shipping services will be fully lifted as well.
