UN: US decision to drop Iran waivers 'may impede' nuclear deal

The United Nations political affairs chief, Rosemary DiCarlo, told the Security Council on Wednesday that US decision not to extend waivers to allow some countries to import Iranian oil “may impede” the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal.

She also said Iran’s announcement that it will take new steps to reduce its commitments under its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers “may not help preserve it,” Reuters reported.

The European Union UN Ambassador Joao Vale de Almeida told the 15-member council that there is “no credible, peaceful alternative” to the 2015 nuclear deal with Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the United States.

The agreement was reached between the P5+1 group of states – the United States, the UK, France, Russia, and China plus Germany – and Iran in July 2015. Washington, however, left the deal in May 2018 and reinstated the anti-Iran sanctions that it had lifted under the document.
