Majlis to Oversee JCPOA Enforcement

A senior lawmaker says the Majlis will "fully oversee" the implementation by the government of the legislation on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the nuclear deal with major powers is formally known.
"The Majlis will have full oversight over the enforcement of the Iranian Government's Reciprocal Action on Implementation of the JCPOA  Act," Deputy Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Sobhaninia told ICANA on Saturday.
The legislation passed on Oct. 13 and approved by the Guardian Council the following day lays out conditions for the implementation by the government of the historic nuclear pact Iran and the P5+1 (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany) reached in Vienna on July 14, which will lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for time-bound restrictions on its nuclear activities.
In response to criticisms voiced by some political groups after the passage of the legislation, Sobhaninia said, "The bill… was approved by the Majlis, and if it had been in contravention of the Constitution and Sharia [Islamic law], the Guardian Council would have rejected it."
"Raising peripheral issues for or against a legislation concerning national interests will cause problems."    

  Waiting for IAEA Assessment  
In a separate interview with ICANA on Saturday, another member of the commission referred to a recent statement by the International Atomic Energy Agency confirming that Tehran has met its commitments under the roadmap agreement it signed with the UN nuclear agency on July 14 and stressed that Iran will complete the nuclear-related measures it agreed to take under the JCPOA after the conclusion of the IAEA probe into its nuclear past.
The IAEA is investigating what it calls possible military dimensions (PMD) of Tehran's nuclear program. Iran denies its work may have been aimed at developing a nuclear weapons capability, saying the program is totally for peaceful applications such as generating electricity.
"PMD is a closed issue for Iran because we have answered the agency's questions on several occasions… In view of the IAEA statement on the closure of the PMD case, the Islamic Republic is waiting for the agency to deliver on its promises and honor its commitments," Avaz Heydarpour said.     
The IAEA in a statement posted on its website on Oct 15 said, "In the period to 15 Oct. 2015, activities set out in the roadmap for the clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran's nuclear program were completed."
"By 15 Dec. 2015, the director general [Yukiya Amano] will provide, for action by the board of governors, the final assessment on the resolution of all past and present outstanding issues, as set out in the annex of the 2011 director general's report," the statement added.
The US and the European Union have adopted the required legal acts to remove sanctions, but they will put their decisions into effect once the IAEA verifies that Iran has met all its commitments under the Vienna agreement.
