Zarif downplays possibility Congress disapproves JCPOA

TEHRAN, Aug. 27 (MNA) – Iran’s Mohammad Javad Zarif has said pressures in the US have been mounted to persuade Congress to reject JCPOA, however says it is highly unlikely.

Zarif was quoted by Iran’s state broadcasting IRIB saying that the attempts focused on bringing JCPOA to a failure would not produce any outcome favorable for the campaigners. “JCPOA has topped the Congress debates in recent four weeks; it is critical in terms of US domestic economy; Congress is under ever-increasing pressures from parties, Zionnsit lobbying circles, and many Congressmen and women in Senate and the House oppose JCPOA,” Zarif draw a dark prospect; “however, the US Constitution gives the president of the country the possibility to veto a Congress opposition if President Obama manages to placate a few members and have them to join the supporters of JCPOA,” he added.

“By the next 3 or 4 weeks, the debates will remain still hot in the US political arena, with the possibility remaining quite low that JCPOA will be rejected; I hope that in our Parliament, the process will be smooth in examining the deal,” Zarif was quoted as having said.
