Rouhani enforces Nuclear Achievements Act

TEHRAN, Jul. 12 (MNA) – In an official decree, Iran’s President Rouhani signed into law act to safeguard Iran’s nuclear achievements.

In an executive order on Sunday, President Hassan Rouhani of Iran ordered Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI) to put into practice the recently ratified Parliament's Act mandating government to safeguard the country's nuclear rights and achievements.

The bill was passed in Majlis’s plenary session on June 23 and became an Act after being approved by the Guardian Council on June 24.

Under the law, the results of ongoing negotiations with 5+1 will be valid if only sanctions are entirely and fully removed, as envisioned by the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) signed in Lausanne city of Switzerland on April 2.

The termination of the sanctions must begin on the same day the agreement is signed.

Also the Act demands foreign minister to brief the Majlis with regular reports every six-month on implementation of the deal.

According to Iran’s Constitution, once an Act of Majlis (Parliament) is approved by the Council of Guardians, it is sent to one of the heads of other two branches of Iran; Executive Branch (headed by the president) or Judiciary Branch (headed by the judiciary chief).  If related to Executive Branch the president would put the responsibility on the appropriate government ministry or department to implement it. An approved act of Majlis is a law, enforced in all areas of the Islamic Republic of Iran where it is applicable.
