TEHRAN, Dec 1 (KUNA) — Iran’s government has criticised the parliament’s vote to suspend more commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal and to boost uranium enrichment if European signatories do not ease sanctions.
“Given past experiences, this law will not help in removing sanctions,” spokesman Ali Rabiei said, mentioning that the decision is not seldomly reserved for the parliament.
Rabiei explained that the Supreme National Security Council of Iran is responsible, saying “it seems that the parliament alone cannot engage in such matters.”
The official hoped that the ‘Guardian Council,’ an influential 12-member supreme constitutional body, would take into consideration legal obstacles and the public interest when discussing the bill.
Earlier, some 251 out of 260 lawmakers voted in favour of the the draft bill, which calls for the Iranian administration to further abandon commitments under the 2015 multilateral agreement.
