UNSC to hear 11th report on JCPOA on Wednesday

New York, IRNA – The United Nations Security Council meeting will be held on Wednesday aiming to represent the UNSC's 11th report on implementing UNSCR 2231 about Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

This will be the first in-person meeting of the UNSC after the outbreak of coronavirus.

"I appeal to the United States to lift or waive its sanctions outlined in the Plan, extend the waivers with regard to the trade in oil with the Islamic Republic of Iran, and fully renew waivers for nuclear non-proliferation projects in the framework of the Plan," Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres said in its report.

"I am encouraged by the recent diplomatic engagements taking place in and around the Joint Commission since April 2021 on the landmark agreement," he added.

Guterres went on to say, "In recent months, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has documented that the Islamic Republic of Iran has installed new and advanced centrifuges, including types IR-2m and IR-4, for uranium enrichment not foreseen in the Plan; has undertaken uranium enrichment up to 60 per cent; and has begun research and development activities for the production of uranium metal for fuel for the Tehran research reactor."

In 2015, the P5+1 group (the US, the UK, France, Russia, and China plus Germany) and Iran signed a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program. The Islamic Republic agreed to cut its nuclear activities in return for paving the way for lifting sanctions, but the Trump administration withdrew from the deal and re-imposed bans on Iran in May 2018.
