If the US Congress or any other authority prevents the implementation of the agreement by the US government, the same will happen on Iran's side as well, and the implementation of the part related to the Islamic Republic will be also deferred. At any rate, the Islamic Republic of Iran will lose nothing. If a final agreement is reached on the text of the JCPOA, it will be either implemented as it is agreed upon and with due care for Iran's considerations, or it will not be carried out at all. The intervention of the US Congress or any other legal institution cannot lead to any changes in the JCPOA without Iran's consent.

Although Russia’s deputy foreign minister and top nuclear negotiator, Sergei Ryabkov, lauded the role played by Russian President Vladimir Putin in the achievement of the agreement , and Andrey Klimov, Deputy Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs of the Council of the Russian Federation, noted that reaching the agreement would have been impossible without Russia, in reality, Moscow played an insignificant role in these round of nuclear talks.

It should be noted that like any other country, Iran has its own complexities and domestic political rivalries and such rivalries usually reach their peak when it comes to the sensitive issue of the nuclear talks.

Mohammad Mansouri Boroujeni
Continuation of the Lausanne agreement will mean that the United States has changed its strategy toward Iran on the basis of recognizing the reality of the Islamic Revolution, and has decided to replace hostile measures aimed at eliminating the Islamic Republic in favor of hostility aimed at reducing the degree to which Iran can meet its interests. In this way, doing away with external threats to totality of the Islamic Establishment will provide the country with a good opportunity to promote the freedom-based tradition that has been stipulated by the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
