US to Witness Another Global Support for JCPOA At UNSC Meeting: Ambassador

NEW YORK – Iranian Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Majid Takht Ravanchi, said that the United States will once again listen to the world supporting the July 2015 nuclear deal at the UN Security Council meeting on Tuesday.
Ravanchi made the remarks in an interview in New York with IRNA news on Tuesday.
In his comments, the ambassador stressed that the United States’ effort to extend the arms embargo against Iran is in complete contradiction with UN Resolution 2231.
Resolution 2231 (2015) urges the full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) in the timetable established by the Agreement. It creates the next steps for the eventual elimination of the Security Council sanctions against Iran.
The international community is behind the implementation of the JCPOA. Following Resolution 2231, the ambassador emphasized, adding that the UN chief and many world leaders have repeatedly expressed their willingness to witness the implementation of the 2015 nuclear agreement.
Such a provision indicates that the world is against the United States’ position on the issue, said the senior diplomat.
Iran and the six world powers (US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) signed a landmark nuclear deal, also known as the JCPOA, on July 14, 2015, after months of intense talks.
But the United States unilaterally withdrew from the deal on May 8, 2018, and imposed sanctions on Iran at the highest level of its kind.
On the United States’ move to extend the arms embargo to Iran, the top diplomat said it is an unprecedented event for a UNSC member to act against a self-founded resolution.
By following such a move, the United States is causing chaos in the international order, he added.
Takht Ravanchi believes that the United States is seeking the annihilation of the JCPOA.
Ridiculously, the United States claims that it is still a member of the 2015 agreement and can reimpose sanctions on Iran based on Resolution 2231, while everyone knows that Washington is no longer the JCPOA participant, he emphasized.
Some claim that Iran should cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is wrong because Iran has already been working well with the Agency and reports confirm the problem, he noted.
US officials are addicted to sanctions; They don’t care what will happen after the sanctions, they want to do it without thinking about the results, Takht Ravanchi said.
In a related development, an American academic, Dr John Calabrese, told IRNA in mid-June that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, by renewing the arms embargo against Iran is showing power to his fans and supporters for reelection.
Also on June 12, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said his country would not agree to the United States’ move to have the UN approve the extension of the arms embargo against Iran.
China will work with all relevant parties to safeguard the authority of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 and the effectiveness of the JCPOA on the Iranian nuclear issue, Wang said according to the China Global Television Network (CGTN).
The UN Security Council will hold an online meeting on Tuesday afternoon to review the latest status of implementation of Resolution 2231.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will participate in the meeting.
