Breaking: Iran’s parliament approves framework for nuclear deal

The Iranian parliament approved generalities of a bill on implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Trend News reported.

The bill called “Iranian government’s reciprocal and proportional action in implementing the JCPOA” was passed by 139 positive votes in an open session on Oct. 11.

A total of 254 lawmakers attended the session, 100 MPs of them voted against the bill and six abstained, Trend News quoted from Iran’s State IRINN TV.

Details of the bill will be discussed in the parliament on Oct. 13.

The session was held under intense debates between the opposing MPs.

The JCPOA was reached between Iran and the P5+1 (the US, the UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) on July 14. It will curb Iran’s nuclear program in return for lifting economic sanctions.

In the opening of the parliament session, the parliament Speaker, Ali Larijani said that the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was informed about the bill.

Larijani quoted Khamenei as saying that he has no viewpoint about the JCPOA and will not interfere in the MPs’ voting.

The bill will allow the government to take some measures in line with the constitution and the country’s red lines regarding the JCPOA.

The Supreme National Security Council, as the highest source of decision making for political and military affairs, has already approved the JCPOA. However Khamenei’s point of view is that the parliament should also take decision in this regard.
