US Secretary General Warns US against Pulling out of Iran Nuclear Deal
May 5 , 2018
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned the United States of America against scrapping the nuclear deal with Iran until and unless there’s a better alternative deal in place. The warning comes after Trump administration threatened to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. This move has also resulted in tension among US allies, who are in favor of preserving the agreement. In an interview, UN Secretary-General has acknowledged the concerns of some countries about Iran’s “influence in other countries of the region” but also stressed on the fact that it’s important to separate things as the region is “in a very dangerous position”. Guterres also called the current Iran nuclear deal (known as JCPOA) an important diplomatic victory, which needs to be preserved.
