Guardian Council of Iran ratified a bill approving the nuclear deal reached by Tehran and six world powers.Reported Iranian state news agency IRNA.

The Guardian Council, made up of six Muslim clerics appointed by the Supreme Leader and six lawyers elected by parliament, is charged with ensuring draft laws do not contradict religious laws or Iran’s constitution.

“The majority of the Guardian Council did not find the bill… to be against religious law and the constitution,”

Reported the Fars news agency.

The exact stance of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the last word on all matters of state, is not known yet.

Provided Khamenei does not openly oppose the bill, analysts expect Iran to begin shutting down parts of its nuclear program in the coming weeks. When completed, that process will result in lifting most of international sanctions, imposed on Iran since 2006.
