Iran's parliament passed a bill Tuesday obliging the government to safeguard the country's "nuclear rights and achievements," despite talks with global powers on curbing the Islamic republic's disputed atomic program.The issue of negotiations is in the sphere of the Supreme National Security Council ... not the government or the parliament".His comments came despite the bill being watered down on Sunday, with the task of supervising a nuclear deal being given to the SNSC, a committee ultimately controlled by Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.The speaker of Iran's parliament, Ali Larijani, however has said its lawmakers will not stand in the way of any deal that Khamenei, who has the last word on all matters foreign and domestic, says is in Iran's interests.
