Interesting to see SL/IRIG referencing the issue of trust in vigilant terms roughly analog to those of POTUS (“not built on trust — it is built on verification”--Obama).
It's also interesting to see Iran's legislative branch of government activated in the approval of JCPOA, where U.S. Congress has also been involved in a ratification process, even though the agreement is formally stipulated not to be a treaty.
End to Death of America slogans & chants?
In Iran we say: shab hanuz deraze
we will see what will happen in future
No those are political fashion show! Whenever Miley Cyrus wears Hijab those chants will go away :)
Why would it?,this deal is not a nixon-mao grand bargain or even a nixon-brezhnev detente,the us still supports irans enemies and still tries to maintain its hegemony over the region so of course iran will continue to resist that

Do you see a problem in that? Part of the deal is that the US opens its embassy in Tehran and Khamenei's rent a crowd be allowed to demonstrate with flag burning and shouting "marg bar amrika!".
Keeps everyone happy that way.
