UN Security Council endorses Iran n-deal

United Nations, July 20 (IANS) The UN Security Council on Monday endorsed the newly-reached agreement between Iran and six world powers on Tehran’s nuclear programme.

In a unanimously adopted resolution, the 15-member council endorsed the deal and urged its full implementation, Xinhua news agency reported.

The agreement, Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), clinched on July 14 between Iran and the P5+1 countries — Britain, China, France, Russia and the US plus Germany – is expected to put Iran on the path of sanctions relief.

According to the resolution, the council will terminate its sanctions on Iran upon receiving a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency that verifies Iran’s implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA.

The commitments include Iran’s redesigning its Arak heavy-water reactor, converting its Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant into a technology centre, removing centrifuges and uranium-enrichment-related infrastructure, among others.

Once the council has been assured that these tasks have been fulfilled, the Iranian sanctions regime, established in previous UN Security Council resolutions since 2006, will be terminated.
