The DOE chief says it is possible to address the shortcomings pointed out by the Guardians Council and finally ratify the agreement

As the international Paris climate agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions will impose certain obligations, Iran needs to take every precaution before coming fully on board to prevent future challenges with the global community. The agreement aims to reduce the threat of global climate change by keeping the temperature rise well below 2° Celsius and possibly even lower to 1.5° C. 
It was adopted by 196 parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in December 2015. As of May 2018, 195 UNFCCC members have signed the agreement, and 176 have become party to the pact. 
Iran's Intended Nationally Determined Contribution involves the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 4% unconditionally and by 8% on condition of sanctions relief. The pact was ratified by the Cabinet and parliament but faced objection by the Guardians Council and was referred back to the Majlis for further review.
