‘No supervisory body formed at Majlis for N-talks’

Politics - A top Iranian MP has dismissed reports that a group has been set up at Majlis to oversee the activities of Tehran’s nuclear negotiating team.

Such a supervisory body is unlikely to be formed either, Iran’s Majlis Vice-Speaker Mohammad-Reza Bahonar told IRNA.

“Majlis’ … supervision over the nuclear negotiating team is a regular monitoring activity, and the National Security [and Foreign Policy] Committee of Majlis exercises some supervision in this respect,” he said.

Media reports recently quoted Deputy Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Majlis Esmail Kowsari as saying that a team of high-ranking officials was formed after Iran’s nuclear agreement on November 24, and that the Iranian nuclear negotiating team would coordinate issues regarding uranium enrichment and other relevant issues with the supervisory body.

Experts from Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - Russia, China, France, Britain and the US - plus Germany concluded their latest round of talks on December 31 which were aimed at devising a mechanism to implement a landmark interim deal reached between the two sides in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24.

Under the Geneva deal, the six countries undertook to provide Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for Iran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities during a six-month period.
