TEHERAN, July 12. /TASS/. Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has issued an order binding the country’s foreign ministry and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) to enforce the law on safeguarding Iran’s rights and achievements in the nuclear sector, the IRNA News Agency said on Sunday.
The law was passed by the country’s Majlis (parliament) on June 23 and contains obligatory wording for provisions of a future agreement on the Iranian nuclear programme. Thus, article 1 of the law reads that all sanctions against Iran are to be completely lifted on the day the nuclear deal comes into force.
Article 2 says that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will be permitted to conduct conventional supervision on the nuclear sites within framework of the Safeguards Agreement. However access to military, security and sensitive non-nuclear locations, documents and scientists will be forbidden. Under article 3, there are to be no restrictions on acquiring peaceful nuclear technology and knowledge and R&D.
Under the law, the results of any nuclear talks with the P5+1 group of international mediators (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany) will be valid if sanctions are entirely and fully lifted, as envisioned by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
The decree was issued as the Iran-P5+1 nuclear talks have entered a final stretch.
