Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 4
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran's parliament is holding a closed-door session to study the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the country's missile program.
IRNA quoted MP Mohammad-Sadat Ebrahimi as saying Oct. 4 that the parliament will also study a double-urgency bill, which emphasizes the need to expand the country's defensive and missile industries.
The JCPOA was reached between Iran and the P5+1 (the US, the UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) on July 14. It will curb Iran's nuclear program in return for lifting economic sanctions.
Meanwhile, the double-urgency bill will allow the government to take some measures in line with the constitution and the country's red lines regarding the JCPOA.
The bill also stipulates that Iran will abandon the JCPOA if the US doesn't meet its obligations according to the nuclear agreement.
Under the bill, the government is also required to stop the implementation of the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty - that allows unannounced inspections outside of declared nuclear sites - if the West doesn't cooperate in the implementation of the JCPOA.
Also, the government is obliged to carry out commercializing nuclear activities, research and development issues, reads the bill.
