Iranian parliament speaker warns MPs against non-expert criticism of nuclear case
Baku, Azerbaijan, April 5
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani urged the MPs to acquire full knowledge of the matter and consult experts before they address the nuclear case, said Iraj Abdi, secretary of one of the conservative parliamentary factions.
He said that during a faction session, Larijani had welcomed the Lausanne framework agreement on Iran's nuclear program, and urged the lawmakers to ask their questions about the nuclear negotiations at a joint meeting with the government, Fars news agency reported April 5.
Abdi said that the parliament speaker had also demanded the MPs to pay respect to the nuclear negotiators and avoid excited confrontations.
Iran and the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) reached a political framework for a final comprehensive deal on Tehran's nuclear program on April 2.
Inside Iran, the nuclear negotiators face many critics who oppose a broad range of activities they have undertaken in the talks, from seeking a "deal with the devil" to the mere act of holding talks with "arrogant" powers.
