|‘Parliament would oblige govt. to quit talks if U.S. imposes new sanctions’||
TEHRAN – An Iranian lawmaker said on Sunday that the Iranian parliament is ready to introduce a bill that would oblige the administration to pull out of nuclear talks with major powers if the United States imposes new sanctions on the country.
MP Esmaeil Jalili also asked U.S. officials to remain committed to the Geneva nuclear deal and said, “As all branches of the Islamic Republic of Iran supported (Iranian) negotiators, the Americans should also respect their negotiators.”
Iran and the 5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) clinched an interim deal in Geneva on November 24, 2013 according to which Iran agreed not to expand its nuclear program for six months in exchange for limited sanctions relief.
The Geneva agreement is designed to provide time to negotiate a comprehensive deal to help resolve Iran’s nuclear issue.
