Senior Iranian MP rejects renegotiation on N. deal

FNA – Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi underlined that Tehran may not renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal with the world powers.

“No negotiations will be held for a change in the nuclear deal and the US is required to implement it as a signatory to the international document which is also backed by a UN Security Council resolution,” Boroujerdi told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday.

He described the US demand for reviewing the nuclear deal as “illegal, unacceptable and illogical”.

In relevant remarks earlier today, Iranian Supreme Leader’s top aide for international affairs Ali Akbar Velayati underlined his country’s strong opposition to the renegotiation on the internationally-endorsed 2105 nuclear deal with the world powers.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran will not renegotiate the nuclear deal at all,” Velayati told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday.

Noting that the nuclear deal was the result of long negotiations between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany), he said, “Any doubt and buyer’s remorse by any country about the agreement is not accepted at all and we don’t accept such proposals (for renegotiations).”

Also in April, Iranian Vice-President and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi underlined that Tehran would never accept to renegotiate its 2015 nuclear deal with the world powers.

“We are not supposed to renegotiate the nuclear deal. The negotiations have been held and we have said this on different occasions. Therefore, the nuclear deal will remain as it is and this will benefit all,” Salehi said.

“Actually, there is no more room for renegotiating the nuclear deal,” he stressed.
