IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL: Despite differences, still best available option, Security Council

IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL: Despite differences, still “best available option” –  Security Council

The international deal over Iran’s nuclear programme known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has stalled, with the country’s enriched uranium stockpile now more than 20 times over the agreed limit, the UN political affairs chief Rosemary DiCarlo warned on Thursday.
Briefing the Security Council on the state of the JCPOA, Ms. DiCarlo set the tone for the discussion by stating, “diplomacy is the only way to effectively address the Iranian nuclear issue.”
The 2015 deal sets out rules for monitoring Iran’s nuclear programme and paves the way for the lifting of UN sanctions. It was agreed by Iran, the five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States), plus Germany, together with the European Union.
The US left the deal in 2018 under former President Donald Trump and has been negotiating its return, so far without any agreement being reached.
The Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs regretted that negotiations to restore the Plan remain stalled even though all participants, including the US, have reaffirmed that “a return to the full and effective implementation of the Plan” was the only viable option.
Devised and endorsed by the Security Council resolution 2231, the Plan offers a solution where Iran’s nuclear facilities are used only for peaceful purposes. In return, sanctions are to be lifted, bringing “tangible economic benefits for the Iranian people”, Ms. DiCarlo said. 
She reiterated the Secretary-General’s appeal to the US to lift or waive its sanctions and to extend waivers regarding the trade in oil with Iran. She also repeated the UN chief’s call on Iran to “reverse the steps it has taken that are not consistent with its nuclear-related commitments under the Plan”. Learn More /…
