A senior Iranian lawmaker has described the moves by pro-Israeli lobbies in the United States as the main threat to the implementation of the landmark interim deal clinched between the Islamic Republic and six major world powers over Tehran’s nuclear energy program last November.
According to Press TV, Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Monday “We are witnessing that the efforts of this lobby in the US Congress have led to the introduction of a new sanctions bill against Iran. Nevertheless, the first stage of the Geneva nuclear agreement has been implemented, and we should wait for the second phase.”
He added, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has shown at the international arena that it stands by its commitments. If the US Congress enters the phase of new sanctions, Geneva agreement will be brought to an end. Therefore, the United States of America will be the biggest loser in case of any mistake by the Congress.”
