Iran’s parliament committee to review text of nuclear deal

TEHRAN – Iranian lawmakers set up a special committee to review the landmark nuclear deal reached with world powers last week after the country’s foreign minister earlier on Tuesday presented parliament with a copy of the agreement.

The development came a day after the UN Security Council unanimously endorsed the deal, which reins in Iran’s nuclear program and authorized measures leading to the end of UN sanctions imposed on Iran. Under Iran’s constitution, parliament has a right to reject any deal – even one negotiated by the foreign ministry – but it is unlikely that the lawmakers would act against it after the deal won an endorsement from the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
