UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the passage of a United Nations Security Council resolution on Monday to endorse the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action reached between Iran and major powers last week to resolve the 12-year dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program, according to the UN News Center.  

Immediately after the resolution was adopted, the UN Chief said the measure “will ensure the enforcement of the JCPOA.”

 He added that it establishes procedures that will facilitate the action plan’s implementation, enabling all states to carry out their obligations contained in the agreement.

“The resolution provides for the eventual removal of all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran and guarantees that the International Atomic Energy Agency will continue to verify Iran’s compliance with its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA,” Ban said.
