Iran nuclear deal not 'renegotiable': MP

Tehran, Jan 26, IRNA – A senior Iranian lawmaker said that the nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers in 2015 is not renegotiable.

'The JCPOA is absolutely not renegotiable,' Valiollah Nanvakenari, a member of Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said on Friday while referring to the nuclear deal's technical name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He referred to the US demand for renegotiating the Iran nuclear deal and described such moves as unprecedented.

The official urged all parties to the nuclear deal to remain committed to its full implementation instead of trying to subject it to renegotiation.

The UN Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have confirmed Iran's compliance by its obligations, he said, while rejecting the ballyhoos and claims made by the US and its allies about peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.

US President Donald Trump has said that European allies and Congress have to work with him to fix “the disastrous flaws” in the nuclear pact or face a US exit.'

Trump is after changing the text of the international nuclear accord.

Iran has repeatedly stressed that the JCPOA is not renegotiable.
