UNITED NATIONS, March 13. /TASS/. UN Security Council (SC) has not yet started discussing a possible resolution on lifting international sanctions from Iran, diplomats from SC member countries told TASS on Friday.
The possibility of lifting sanctions from Iran is considered in case an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program is reached.
"No discussions are held in New York [UN headquarters] now on this issue," a diplomat from one of Western countries said. "At the moment, the possibility of adopting such a resolution was only discussed in the framework of P5+1 group [US, UK, Russia, France, China and Germany]," he said. Another diplomat noted that "in principal" the talks are already held on possibility of lifting sanctions from Iran, but not on the level of UN Security Council.
A diplomat from a third country said that "at some point" the issue of lifting sanctions "will definitely be raised at the UN Security Council." After UN and Tehran reach an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, a resolution to support this agreement will be adopted, the diplomat said.
