Iran Lawmakers Vote to Implement Nuclear Deal

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's parliament voted Tuesday to support implementing a landmark nuclear deal struck with world powers despite hard-line attempts to derail the bill, suggesting the historic accord will be carried out.

The bill will be reviewed by Iran's 12-member Guardian Council, a group of senior clerics who could return it to lawmakers for further discussion. However, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on key policies, has said it is up to the 290-seat parliament to approve or reject the deal.

Signaling the nuclear deal's likely success, a spokesman for moderate President Hassan Rouhani's administration welcomed the parliament's vote and called it a "historic decision."

"Members of parliament made a well-considered decision today showing they have a good understanding of the country's situation," Mohammad Bagher Nobakht said. "We hope to see acceleration in progress and development of the country from now on."

The European Union's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who helped facilitate the nuclear talks, also praised the vote as "good news" in a message on Twitter.

In the parliamentary session carried live by state radio, 161 lawmakers voted for implementing the nuclear deal, while 59 voted against it and 13 abstained. Another 17 did not vote at all, while 40 lawmakers did not attend the session.
