Iran’s parliament to review text of nuclear deal

TEHRAN – Iran’s landmark nuclear deal reached with world powers last week is heading to the country’s parliament so that Iranian lawmakers can review it.

State media said on Tuesday that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who headed the Iranian negotiating team during the talks in Vienna, sent the text of the agreement to the house. Under Iran’s constitution, parliament has a right to reject any deal – even one negotiated by the foreign ministry. However, it’s not clear this time whether there will be a vote by lawmakers on the deal or whether they will simply discuss it and possibly express concerns about it.
