Iranian Parliament met on Sunday February 23 for an unofficial session to discuss nuclear negotiations between Iran and the world powers.

Abdolreza Mesri, the spokesman for the presiding board of Parliament, said the MPs used the opportunity to express their concerns regarding some of the statements issued by U.S. officials.

“The Americans have made certain statements which are not part of the nuclear negotiations that have no administrative values for us and may be just for appeasement of their domestic issues. These issues were discussed and criticized by MPs,” Mesri said.

Recently, the White House announced that Iran’s missile program is also a topic of concern in the nuclear negotiations in Vienna, a statement rejected by Iran.

Another concern has been that despite the interim agreement between Iran and the world powers and the prospect of a final deal in the next six months, U.S. officials have repeated that the military option against Iran is still a possibility if the talks fail.
