All Officials Share Credit, Responsibility for JCPOA

The historic nuclear deal with major powers was the result of collective decisions and consultations between all relevant authorities and its merits cannot be credited to certain figures and demerits must not be blamed on the government, a prominent lawmaker said.
The agreement, clinched between Iran and P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) on July 14, 2015, after about two years of talks, took effect in January to give Iran relief from economic sanctions in return for temporary restrictions on its nuclear program.
The government of moderate President Hassan Rouhani and his team of nuclear negotiators led by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif have faced unrelenting criticism from domestic conservative opponents over the deal, formally called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
They claim that the accord granted too many concessions to the other side and falls short of the standards set by the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
"The JCPOA has both advantages and disadvantages, but its strengths by far outweigh its weaknesses," Ali Motahhari told IRNA on Monday.
"We should not act in a way to create the impression that the JCPOA's merits belong to a certain section of the establishment while Rouhani and Zarif are to be blamed for its demerits. The whole system has contributed to the action plan and approved it after considering its advantages and disadvantages."
