The closed session of the Iranian parliament (Majlis) devoted to domestic and foreign affairs, regional and international issues of concern, with particular emphasis on the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA) got underway on Tuesday morning.

An MP representing 'Golpayegan' in the Iranian parliament, Ali Bakhtiari, has said bearing in mind that Wednesday 8 May 2019, is the first anniversary of America's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA), a major portion of Tuesday's closed session of the Majlis will be devoted to the subject of US abrogation of JCPOA, with Iranian parliamentarians scrutinising and analysing the many different facets of this major event.

In a live televised and radio address on Wednesday, President Hassan Rouhani will announce Iran's retaliatory actions against the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

According to the source close to the supervisory board monitoring the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) said on Monday, Iran will remove some limitations on its nuclear activities which had been suspended under the agreement.

The measures will be within the framework of the JCPOA’s 26 and 36 articles and quitting the deal is not still on the agenda, Tehran Times reported.

The source said that move is also a response to the European Union which has failed to meet its obligations under the multilateral nuclear agreement.

US President Donald Trump had withdrawn from the Iran nuclear deal and set to renew sanctions on Iran On May 8, 2018.
