Iran | Parliament Speaker: Iran determined to stop implementation of Additional Protocol

Iran's Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf said on Monday that Iran is determined to stop implementation of the Additional Protocol and limit access of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors and to implement all the legal issues.

Addressing an open session of Majlis, Qalibaf said any access beyond the safeguards is prohibited and illegal, said , adding that monitoring the issue should be done by Majlis (Parliament).

He said according to the law, parts of the stipulated commitments have been done in their time and from tomorrow the law concerning the Additional Protocol should be implemented.

The National Security and Foreign Policy Commission and Energy Commission of Majlis have the responsibility to have field inspections and provide a report, he said, adding that naturally, any violation of the law will be dealt with according to the laws passed by the Parliament.

The head of the Nuclear Energy Commission of Majlis Fereydoon Abbasi said today that the other party has not taken any measure to remove the sanctions and giving them a three-month period is a mistake.

He added that Iran should cut the cooperation with the IAEA from the very beginning of the strategic law of sanctions removal passed by Majlis (February 23) and not be deceived by the other party.
