Parliament Passes Motion for Removal of Sanctions

Parliament Passes Motion for Removal of Sanctions Parliament Passes Motion for Removal of Sanctions

The Iranian Parliament on Sunday passed a double-urgency motion for the bill on “strategic measures for the removal of sanctions”. 
The single urgency had earlier been passed in early November but the bill’s status was advanced in the wake of the assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh near Tehran on Friday. 
The motion was tagged with a "double urgency", which garnered 232 votes from a total of 246 lawmakers attending the session, IRNA reported. 
Sanctions were reimposed on Tehran by the United States that unilaterally withdrew from the accord in 2018.
The bill contains a combination of suggestions, including Iran’s withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty and revision of measures related to JCPOA. 
The lawmakers also issued a statement on Sunday, demanding that the country respond to Fakhrizadeh’s assassination by restricting the United Nations' regulatory mandate regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
They stressed that the best means of retaliation is through the revival of the country’s nuclear industry by ending its voluntary adherence to the Additional Protocol and restricting the UN nuclear watchdog's unprecedented inspection regime.
Iran agreed to adhere to the Additional Protocol of NPT as part of the nuclear deal, allowing the International Atomic Energy Agency to carry out “more intrusive” inspections of the country’s nuclear work.
