Endurance of Nuclear Deal to Benefit Int’l Community

The UN chief said the endurance of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement will benefit the whole world by helping promote diplomacy and dialogue as a viable solution to the most complex conflicts.
"It is in the interest of the international community that this achievement of multilateral diplomacy endures transitions and implementation challenges cementing our collective commitment to diplomacy and dialogue," UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in statement on Friday on the occasion of the deal's second anniversary.
"Two years on, I am encouraged by the continued implementation of the [pact]. I commend the Islamic Republic of Iran for implementing its nuclear-related commitments, as verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency," said the statement, carried by the UN website.
Guterres reaffirmed the global body's commitment to the historic agreement and urged all UN member states to further support it.

  Reaffirmed EU Support
Federica Mogherini, the European Union's top diplomat, also released a statement to mark the occasion.
"Eighteen months after its entry into force, the deal has been successfully implemented by all parties, including Iran, as confirmed by the six reports issued by the IAEA. Through the Joint Commission of the JCPOA that I coordinate, we are monitoring very closely the full implementation of the deal in all its parts," Mogherini said in the statement posted on the European External Action Service's website.
She was referring to the international accord by its formal name the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
The Joint Commission is a panel of representatives from all JCPOA participants, namely Iran and the six major powers, tasked under the action plan with monitoring it and addressing issues that arise from its implementation.
"The European Union is and will stay committed in preserving and implementing it, and building on it to address the remaining unresolved sources of tension and conflict that are still afflicting the region," Mogherini added.
