Iranian MPs hold meeting for 2nd biannual report on JCPOA implementation

Tasnim– The Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission held a special meeting to draft the second biannual report on the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the commission’s rapporteur said.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said the parliamentary commission held the meeting on Wednesday morning in a bid to prepare a report on the implementation process of the July 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers over the past six months.

Back in February, Abolfazl Hassanbeigi, a member of the commission, had said that the second biannual report on the implementation of the JCPOA would be submitted to the parliament’s presiding board by March 20.

Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, US, Britain, France, and Germany) on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the JCPOA, which took effect in January 2016.

According to a law that requires the Iranian administration to safeguard the nation’s achievements and nuclear rights, the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has been tasked with monitoring “the proper implementation” of the JCPOA, and is required to submit a report on the issue to the presiding board of the parliament every six months.
