TEHERAN, October 4. /TASS/. Iran's Majlis (parliament) on Sunday passed a bill allowing the government to implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear programme signed on July 14 in Vienna by Iran and the P5+1 group of international mediators (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany)/
"Iran’s Majilis approved a single-urgency bill on Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action which is called 'Iranian government's reciprocal and proportional action' bill on Sunday," the IRNS news agency said.
Under the JCPOA, Iran undertakes not to manufacture weapons-grade plutonium, to have not more than 300 kilograms of 3.67% enriched uranium in a period of 15 years, to reshape nuclear facilities and use them exclusively in peaceful purposes. In exchange, gradual sanction lifting is to begin soon. However weapons sales ban imposed by the United Nations Security Council will be in place for five years and the ben on ballistic missile technologies sales to Iran will be in force for eight years. Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will monitor Iran’s nuclear facilities for 25 years. In case Iran violates the deal, sanctions may be re-imposed. On July 20, the plan was supported by the United Nations Security Council.
