Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Thursday that the Iranian parliament should vote on a landmark nuclear accord with Western powers. He also called for a full lifting of sanctions against Iran, rather than a partial one.

“I am not advising parliament to approve or disapprove” the nuclear accord, state media quoted the ayatollah as saying. “It is up to them to decide.”
