Iranian parliament passes bill approving nuclear deal

Iran’s parliament has passed a bill approving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal, agreed between Iran and the E3/EU+3 in July (see previous blog), by 161 votes to 59, with 13 abstentions.

The bill is reported to stipulate that international inspections of military sites must be approved by a high-level Iranian security body, and to allow the Iranian government to withdraw from implementing the nuclear agreement if world powers do not lift sanctions. The bill must now be approved by a clerical body before it becomes law in Iran.
