Russian Envoy Blames UN Chief for Overlooking US Violation of Resolution on Iran N. Deal

UN Chief
Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said that he was surprised to see that the UN chief has ignored Washington’s violation of its resolution 2231 in his latest report on the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

"Bearing in mind the importance for the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) of the United States’ unilateral actions, we were utterly surprised that this situation is tackled in the report only in passing. It is absolutely incomprehensible how a report on the implementation of Resolution 2231 can be drawn without even mentioning the fact that Washington’s re-imposing unilateral sanctions is a flagrant violation of not only its liabilities under the JCPOA but also Resolution 2231," Nebenzya told the UN Security Council on Wednesday, TASS reported.

At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that the United Nations Secretary General’s report that was published on Wednesday clearly indicates that Iran is committed to its liabilities under the nuclear deal.

"The Secretary General’s report clearly says that Iran is unconditionally fulfilling its obligations under the JCPOA, which has been attested not only by the IAEA but also by the United Nations Secretariat, which, according to the document, has no evidence to the contrary," he said.

According to the Russian diplomat, not a single example of Iran’s alleged violation of Resolution 2231 cited in the document is proved by convincing evidence. "Once again, we have to stress that the UN Secretariat cannot conduct any investigations without a clear Security Council mandate for that," he noted.
