Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

ILNA* - The spokesman of the Ira­nian Par­lia­ment’s con­ser­va­tive fac­tion has re­nounced the re­cent burn­ing of the U.S. flag and a copy of the Iran nu­clear deal by a group of hard­lin­ers, say­ing his fac­tion was not be­hind the move.

“The last week’s move of mem­bers of the fac­tion to burn the U.S. flag and JCPOA was not co­or­di­nated and the fac­tion was not aware of it,” said Hos­sein Naqavi Hos­seini said.

Last Wed­nes­day, over 20 law­mak­ers, most of whom mem­bers of the con­ser­va­tive fac­tion, burned a copy of the 2015 nu­clear deal and the U.S. flag on the Par­lia­ment’s floor in a sym­bolic re­sponse to the U.S. with­drawal from the multi-party ac­cord.
