UN Deputy Secretary-General for Political Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo told the UN Security Council (UNSC) that the context for the implementation of JCPOA and UN´s Resolution-2231 has improved considerably since last year.
Continuing diplomatic efforts in Vienna, DiCarlo said, provide a critical opportunity for a positive and crucial breakthrough.
As DiCarlo stressed, it´s pivotal that all UN member States promote an enabling setting and avoid any negative actions on these ongoing diplomatic efforts, as well as on regional stability.
UN Secretary-General (UNSG) António Guterres urged the United States to lift or end more sanctions, to expand exemptions regarding oil trade with Iran and to make activities related to nuclear energy easier.
Russia´s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia, on the other hand, stressed that the United States must return, without delay, to fully comply with the JCPOA.
Russian representatives attending the JCPOA talks in Vienna are willing to do everything as possible to guarantee the convergence of the US-Iran stances, and other UNSC member States should do the same thing, Nebenzia said.
