Iran’s Foreign Ministry to submit quarterly report on JCPOA soon: MP

Tasnim – A senior Iranian lawmaker announced that the Foreign Ministry’s fourth quarterly report on the implementation of the July 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), will be submitted to the parliament in coming days.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Hojatoleslam Mojtaba Zonnoor, the head of the Nuclear Committee of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said according to schedule, the foreign ministry will submit the fourth report on JCPOA to the commission on Monday.

He further pointed to the second biannual report on the JCPOA to be submitted to the presiding board of the parliament by the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission and said the report will include some issues raised in the previous report of the commission and those of the foreign ministry.

Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the JCPOA, which took effect on January 16, terminating all nuclear-related sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

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.

Months after coming into force of the JCPOA, some Iranian officials still complain about the other side’s failure to fully implement the accord.
