JCPOA to be ratified on Monday: Salehi

TEHRAN, Oct. 15 (MNA) – Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said that an Iranian delegation will be leaving for Vienna today and JCPOA will most probably be ratified on Monday.

Ali Akbar Salehi expressed his gratitude to the Guardian Council and the Iranian Parliament MPs for approving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and said that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is strongly supported now.   

He added that an Iranian delegation headed by Deputy FM Seyyed Abbas Araghchi and including AEOI spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi, will be heading to Vienna today and JCPOA will most probably be ratified on Monday.

Following the approval, the EU will announce all the sanctions against Iran to be lifted, he said and added “The president of the United States will also officially announce lifting of some sanctions while some other will be suspended.”

“The exact date of JCPOA’s implementation depends on the commitments of Iran and the steps it takes regarding Natanz and Fordo which will possibly take two months.”

Some of the commitments include the changes in the number of centrifuge machines in the Natanz facility, as well as other measures in Fordo and Arak’s heavy water reactors.

He also added that Iran is negotiating with some countries to cooperate in the area of “nuclear safety” and Japan has announced its readiness, adding that nuclear safety is indeed the most significant aspect of the industry.
