Nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi reiterated that a breach of the terms of the United Nations resolution adopted on July 20 to endorse the nuclear deal concluded days before between Iran and major powers would not reinstate sanctions because it is not part the accord, ICANA reported. “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (as the deal is officially titled) is an annex to the UN resolution,” Lawmaker Hossein Naqavi Hosseini quoted Araqchi as saying on Sunday in a meeting of the Majlis special commission tasked with examining the pact. “The JCPOA is as valid as UN resolutions, but the (July 20) resolution is not part of the JCPOA. In other words, the violation of the resolution will not result in re-imposition of sanctions,” Araqchi added, according to Naqavi Hosseini.   The accord places temporary restrictions on Tehran’s nuclear program in return for relief from international sanctions.
