Iran’s President to Use UNGA to Address US JCPOA Breach
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the United Nations General Assembly provides a good opportunity for Iran to publicize the US violations of international agreements, including its withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
Speaking to reporters at John F. Kennedy International Airport upon his arrival in New York on Sunday evening, Rouhani said his trip to the UN for the annual General Assembly gathering will include sideline meetings and interviews.
Citing the “different atmosphere” of this year’s General Assembly meeting, the president said, “Americans have unfortunately reneged on many of their commitments across the world, including their commitments under the JCPOA.”
The president also said that the UNGA provides an opportunity for better explication of the US breach of international regulations.
On May 8, US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the JCPOA, which was achieved in Vienna in 2015 after years of negotiations among Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
