Full IAEA Access Needs Majlis Approval

Full IAEA Access Needs Majlis Approval

A lawmaker said the provisional application of the Additional Protocol to Iran’s safeguards agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency will get underway under certain restrictions after the July nuclear deal with major powers takes full effect in the coming weeks, but its permanent implementation will need parliamentary approval.
Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi also told ICANA on Saturday that Iran has agreed to voluntarily implement the Additional Protocol to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty on a temporary basis. “Since the move was against the previous laws, the parliament legalized the temporary implementation by passing a motion,” he said, adding that the permanent implementation should be approved by the legislature. “The government should submit a bill to the parliament for it to decide on the permanent application of the Additional Protocol.”
Boroujerdi also said the Additional Protocol will be applied under certain restrictions, which have been informed to the IAEA. “Iran has always declared that visits to the country’s nuclear sites should be made in conventional ways or should be permitted by the Supreme National Security Council,” he said. The Additional Protocol gives IAEA inspectors unfettered access to its nuclear facilities.
