JCPOA implementation depends on closing PMD issue: MP

Tehran, Nov 6, IRNA – A senior member of Parliament Abbasali Mansouri Arani said on Friday that Iran’s implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) depends on closing the so-called possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program by the IAEA.

Mansouri Arani, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, made the remarks in an exclusive interview with IRNA.

He said that the UN nuclear agency will release its report on the PMD within the next two weeks and any measure by the Islamic Republic of Iran to implement the JCPOA depends on how this report will meet Tehran’s interests.

‘We have agreed to honor our commitments about the centrifuges by the time of implementing the JCPOA which is within the next two months,’ Mansouri Arani said.

Referring to Iran’s commitment to transfer 10,000 centrifuges in Natanz site and store them there, he said that this requires preliminary measures and dismantling the centrifuges and in order to do so, Iran is waiting for the agency’s report on PMD.

He noted that based on a letter by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, any measure by Iran in this regard depends on closing the PMD issue.
