1st LD: Iran Majlis approves law to implement nuclear deal

Xinhua, October 13, 2015 Adjust font size:

Iran's Majlis (parliament) approved a legislation on Tuesday which asks the government to implement the recent nuclear deal reached by Iran and world powers.

Based on the legislation, the Iranian administration was urged to take "proportional measures" in implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreed in July by Iran and the P5+1 group, namely the five permeant members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany.

The motion, which was ratified with 161 votes in favor, 59 against and 13 abstentions, asks the government to consider national security in implementing the deal, stressing reciprocal measures in response to pressures and threats that might go beyond the obligations of Iran in the agreement. Endit
