Iran, world powers to hold meeting on nuclear deal
Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 20
By Khalid Kazimov – Trend:
The Islamic Republic and the P5+1 group of countries are expected to hold a joint commission meeting to discuss the recent US move to renew the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), an Iranian MP said.
Hossein Naqavi, a member of the Iranian parliamentary commission of national security and foreign policy, has said that the meeting will take place on Jan. 10, IRNA news agency reported.
The US senate vote on the extension of the ISA is in violation of the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the six states, the MP said.
The US Senate passed a 10-year extension of the ISA on December 1. Following the vote, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Dec 13 tasked the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) to plan work on nuclear propulsion devices to be used in sea transport in response to the US “violation” of the last year’s nuclear deal.
