Based on the president’s communique, the Iranian interior, intelligence, foreign and defense ministries as well as the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) and the Judiciary are required to implement the law which was earlier approved by the parliament and the Guardian Council.
Guardian Council’s Spokesman Abbas Ali Kadkhodayee wrote on his twitter page last Thursday that the Council studied the bill in its Wednesday meeting and did not find it against the religion and Constitution.
The Guardian Council is responsible to ensure the compatibility of the legislation passed by the Islamic Consultative Assembly (Parliament) with the criteria of Islam and the Constitution.
The Iranian parliament in its meeting last week unanimously approved the generalities of a bill to confront the hostile acts of the Zionist regime against peace and security.
The parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission had earlier this month prepared and approved the bill on “confronting the hostile acts of the Zionist regime against peace and security”.
“Based on the first article of the bill, all Iranian bodies are required to use the country’s regional and international capacities to confront the Zionist regime’s measures, specially its warmongering and terrorist moves, siege (of Gaza), settlement construction, displacing the Palestinian people and occupation of countries’ lands, including Golan,” Rapporteur of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told FNA at the time.
He added that the bill also underlines support for Quds city as the Palestinian capital and the Palestinian people.
Naqavi Hosseini said that based on the approval, any cooperation or spying for the Zionist regime is equal to enmity towards God and corruption on earth and activities of the Israeli software platforms in Iran and using its hardware and software products is forbidden.
He noted that another article of the bill requires the foreign ministry to pursue the referendum in the Palestinian territories which has been registered at the UN too.
The new bill also bans transferring the goods produced by the Israeli companies via the Iranian territories as well as participation of the Israeli nationals and firms in the exhibitions held inside Iran.
It also requires the government to pave the ground for the establishment of a virtual embassy in Palestine.
“The foreign ministry is required to make necessary arrangements to form the Islamic Republic of Iran’s virtual embassy or consulate (in Palestine) and submit the results for approval to the cabinet,” one of the paragraphs of the bill said.
“The foreign ministry is required to adopt necessary measures (to this end) in consultations with other countries,” it added.
