UN Chief Urges Adherence to Iran Deal

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the nuclear agreement between Iran and major powers is “robust” and the leaders of the international community should abide by the accord.
“I believe that this agreement by P5+1 (the US, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany) … was a robust agreement … We have to respect this agreement. I have been discussing this matter with Iranian authorities and they are also concerned that … if there are any changes or any disruptions of the process of this agreement, then it will take a much, much longer time [to implement the deal]. During that time, who knows what will happen again,” Ban told CNN in a Tuesday interview, cited by Sputnik. In July 2015, the six powers reached the agreement with Iran to ensure Tehran’s nuclear program will remain peaceful in exchange for sanctions relief.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, US president-elect Donald Trump had repeatedly criticized the nuclear accord, calling it the “stupidest” deal of all time. He has threatened to tear it.
Iranian statesmen have responded by saying that if the US were to tear the accord, Iran will burn it. They have also vowed to give a reciprocal response to any breach of the nuclear deal.
