MP Opposes Complaining to JCPOA Panel

It would be pointless to file a complaint with the Joint Commission over the US Congress bill to extend the Iran Sanctions Act, because all members of the panel wield the veto power.
Iran and the United States and other five powers reached a deal in July 2015 that went into effect early this year to scale down Tehran's nuclear program in return for relief from international sanctions.
The commission comprises representatives from all parties to the historic pact tasked with monitoring it and addressing issues arising from its implementation.
US President Barack Obama is expected to sign into law the ISA bill that has passed the Congress almost unanimously.
It has drawn sharp criticism from Iranian officials who denounce it as a violation of the accord and threaten to retaliate.
Some have suggested that Iran take its grievances to the Joint Commission.
"Complaining to the Joint Commission set up under the JCPOA would not be in Iran's interest because the commission's work is based on a mechanism whereby any member can use its veto power" to override a decision, Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told ICANA on Saturday.
JCPOA stands for the formal title of the deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
