JNS.org – Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei signed off on an amended nuclear deal that was approved by Iran’s parliament last week.

In a letter to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Khamenei gave his blessing to the nuclear deal signed between Iran and the P5+1 world powers in July. But Khamenei listed several conditions, including that the nuclear deal would be rendered void if any country re-imposes sanctions on Iran.

“Any comments suggesting the sanctions structure will remain in place or [new] sanctions will be imposed, at any level and under any pretext, would be a violation of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action),” read the letter, Iran’s state-run Press TV reported.

Last week, the Iranian parliament, in a 161-59 vote with 13 abstentions, approved an amended version of July’s nuclear deal.

According to reports, the bill passed by the parliament, known as the Majlis, stipulates that international inspectors would only have limited access to nuclear sites, which was not part of the original deal. The resolution also included new demands on sanctions removal.
