UNITED NATIONS, September 28. /TASS/. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has told the UN General Assembly he hopes solidarity that the permanent members of UN Security Council (Russia, China, US, UK, France) demonstrated on the Iranian nuclear program issue can be used in settling conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Ukraine.
Ban Ki-moon said he approves the nuclear agreement between Iran and P5+1 group of countries (five permanent members of UN Security Council and Germany) adding that "dialogue and patient diplomacy have paid dividends." The UN secretary general said he hopes this solidarity between UN Security Council permanent members can also be used in settling other conflict situations, including those in Syria, Yemen and Ukraine.
On 14 July 2015, the P5+1 group of international mediators (five permanent members of UN Security Council — US, UK, Russia, China, France — and Germany) and Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran will not produce weapons-grade plutonium and limit its stockpile of uranium enriched to 3.67% to 300 kilograms for the next 15 years. Tehran also agreed to modernize its nuclear facilities and use them for exclusively peaceful purposes.
Sanctions will be gradually removed from Iran. The arms embargo imposed by UN Security Council will be kept in place for five years, ban for supplying ballistic missile technologies to Iran - for eight years. Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will monitor nuclear facilities in Iran for the next 25 years. If any points of the agreement are violated by Iran, sanctions against the country will be renewed.
On July 20, the corresponding resolution on Iran’s nuclear program agreement was adopted by UN Security Council.
