TEHRAN (Iran News) – Chairman of Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission stated that the agreement between the IAEA and the AEOI is a clear violation of the law.
Reacting to the agreement between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Mojtaba Zonnouri said: “The agreement states that the verification and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear sites will continue for up to 3 months, and even the number of inspectors will not decrease.”
Zonouri highlighted that there has been a clear violation of the parliament’s strategic action plan, which aims to counteract sanctions imposed on the Iranian nation and safeguard its interests.
“Isn’t the recent agreement, the acceptance of conditions by the other signatories? Therefore, I suggest that we do not pass a new law until the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan, and after its implementation, determine the budget law,” the MP underlined.
On the sidelines of the open session of the parliament held on Monday, the MPs agreed on the government’s violation of the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan by sending a report of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission to the judiciary in accordance with Article 234 of the Rules of Procedure of the parliament, with 221 votes in favor, 6 against and 7 abstentions out of 239 MPs present at the meeting.
Parts of the report stated that the joint agreement and statement of the IAEA and the AEOI is a clear violation of the Strategic Action Plan to Lift Sanctions and Protect the Rights of the Iranians, so, the Judiciary is urged to annul.
This is while the Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Monday that all agreements between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are in the framework of Iran’s parliament law.
Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reached a “temporary bilateral technical understanding” during the visit of the IAEA chief to Tehran, according to a joint statement.
The joint statement, which was released by the Agency following its director-general’s trip to Tehran on Sunday, declares that Iran will stop its voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and will deny IAEA inspectors access to its nuclear facilities beyond the Safeguards Agreement as of February 23, 2021, for three months.
Iran and the IAEA have also agreed to a temporary bilateral technical understanding, compatible with the Law, whereby the IAEA will continue with its necessary verification and monitoring activities for up to 3 months (as per a technical annex).
