Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 9
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Iranian administration has accepted to inform the Special Parliamentary Commission to Review the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), the MP, Hossein Naghavi Hosseini said.
Naghavi Hosseini, who is the spokesman of the aforementioned commission, said that the MPs asked Ali Akbar Salehi, Iranian vice-president and head of the country's Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI) to submit the secret deal to the commission members, Tasnim news agency reported Sept. 9.
Salehi has agreed to brief the parliamentary commission about the details of the secret Iran-IAEA agreement, Naghavi Hosseini added.
Meanwhile Iran 's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Reza Najafi earlier objected to the US Senate's demand for being briefed about the contents of the signed roadmap of cooperation between Tehran and the IAEA.
Najafi cautioned the UN nuclear watchdog to avoid disclosing its secret agreements with Tehran to the US.
Head of the IAEA Yukiya Amano and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi signed a roadmap of cooperation in Vienna on July 14. Iran and the P5+1(Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US) reached a nuclear deal dubbed JCPOA after more than a decade of on-off negotiation, granting Tehran sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
