UN chief urges Trump not to walk away from JCPOA

UN chief urges Trump not to walk away from JCPOA
IRAN  - U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres has praised the Iran nuclear deal as “an important diplomatic victory” and warned against destroying the seven-party agreement without any “alternative.”

In an interview with BBC Radio 4 on Thursday, the U.N. chief said, "I believe the JCPOA (the Iran nuclear deal) was an important diplomatic victory and I think it will be important to preserve it."

"If one day there is a better agreement to replace it, it is fine, but we should not scrap it unless we have a good alternative," Guterres said

Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the U.S., France, Britain, Russia and China - plus Germany signed the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), on July 14, 2015 and started implementing it on January 16, 2016.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against it.
