Dialogue  Dividends

Dialogue Dividends

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon hailed the July 14 Iran nuclear agreement, expressing hope that world powers could use the “solidarity” they demonstrated during the nuclear talks to resolve conflicts across the world.
“I commend the landmark nuclear agreement between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the P5+1 [the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany]. Dialogue and patient diplomacy have paid dividends,” Ban said in an address to the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Monday, Press TV reported.
“I hope this spirit of solidarity among the permanent members of the Security Council can be demonstrated in other conflict areas, such as Syria, Yemen and Ukraine,” the UN chief said.
Ban referred to Iran as one of the “key” countries that can play a significant role in the resolution of the crisis in Syria.
“It is time now for others, primarily the Security Council and key regional actors, to step forward,” he said, adding, “Five countries in particular hold the key: the Russian Federation, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey.”
Ban noted that the situation in Syria will change if the “key” countries reach a compromise on the resolution of the crisis.
“But as long as one side will not compromise with the other, it is futile to expect change on the ground.”
