SNSC Almost Done With Nuclear Pact Review

SNSC Almost Done With Nuclear Pact Review  SNSC Almost Done With Nuclear Pact Review

The Supreme National Security Council has nearly finished reviewing the nuclear deal reached between Iran and major powers on July 14, the secretary of the council said on Thursday.  

The Majlis voted to pass a bill in June giving the SNSC the right to issue a verdict on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the official name of the accord. In parallel with the SNSC, the US Congress is considering the JCPOA and has until September 17 to vote on a resolution of disapproval.

"We are in the final stages of examining the deal in the SNSC," Ali Shamkhani was quoted by IRNA as saying in his address to university authorities in the northwestern city of Tabriz.

Elsewhere in an interview with IRNA on the same day, he said that no announcement would be made of the SNSC's verdict until the results of the US Congress review are known.

"The results will be announced around the same time that the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany) announce theirs," he said.

The nuclear accord will provide Iran with relief from international sanctions in return for temporary limits on its nuclear work.
