Zarif attends Majlis committee on JCPOA

September 15, 2015

Iran’s foreign minister attended a special meeting of a parliamentary committee tasked with reviewing the nuclear conclusion reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

During the session which lasted for several hours, Mohammad Javad Zarif answered questions raised by the lawmakers regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or the JCPOA reached in Vienna back in July.
Deputy foreign ministers Abbas Araqchi, Majid Takht-Ravanchi and Hassan Qashqavi were also present in the session.

On August 19, the Iranian Parliament appointed 15 lawmakers as members of an ad hoc committee tasked with reviewing the agreement.

Iran’s former negotiating team headed by Saeed Jalili has pointed out its criticism about the JCPOA in several sessions.

Talking to reporters after Sunday’s meeting, Araqchi said the session was effective in clearing ambiguities about the deal.
