Tehran, Iran, Feb. 19 – Former Iranian President and current chairman of the State Expediency Council Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has no say in the Islamic Republic’s nuclear policy, a senior Iranian official said on Saturday.

Mohsen Rezai, the former Supreme Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), told reporters that the expediency council and its chairman had no involvement in Iran’s nuclear file. Rezai himself has the influential post of secretary general of State Expediency Council.

“The Supreme National Security Council is the main organ in charge of the nuclear file, and the Expediency Council does not therefore involve itself in this file in any way, but the President and government officials brief it on the country’s nuclear file”, Rezai said.

As chair of the SEC, Rafsanjani is in charge of arbitration in disputes between the Guardian Council and Iran’s Majlis, or parliament.
