IRNA reports that Ali Motahari in reaction to a double-urgency draft bill by the Majlis said that it is not advisable to oblige the negotiation team to observe the nuclear rights by using such a bill and added "It is not within the privileges of the Majlis lawmakers to bring up such a draft.”
"In this draft, the Majlis has put itself in the shoes of the negotiation team and it seems as though it has composed the text for agreement with the 5+1 group, placing itself at one side of the negotiations, while that is not within the responsibilities of the Majlis at all,” he asserted.
"They wanted so to hobble the Iranian negotiators,” he maintained, adding "The draft is against the major policies of the state and the Supreme Leader’s guidelines, because in it, the Majlis has sort of obliged the negotiation team, while the state has given the negotiation team the right to give advantages where things are not vital for the Islamic Republic in order to be able to gain advantages in return.”
Motahari further said "I do not think that the draft will be mentioned in the Majlis; because many of the signatory have later understood the nature of the draft and demanded to take their signatures back.”
The draft obliging the government to preserve the nuclear rights was presented to the Majlis Board of Directors with 110 signatures last Tuesday.
