EU, UN, Russia support Iran nuclear accord

Tehran, The senior officials of the United Nations, the European Union and Russia have verified Iran compliance with the nuclear deal.

Cornel Feruta, a senior official at the International Atomic Energy Agency, said the deal had significantly improved access to Iran, according to Reuters.

In short, Iran is now subject to the most robust nuclear verification regime and Iran is implementing its nuclear related commitments under the JCPOA, Feruta was quoted as saying.

It is essential that Iran continues to fully implement those commitments, he added.

Meanwhile EU disarmament envoy Jacek Bylica said the deal strengthened the international non-proliferation regime, contributed to regional and international security and ensured the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme.

In the meantime, the UN High representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu said, The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action continues to be the best way to ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme and to realize the promised tangible economic benefits for the Iranian people.

Finally Sergey Lavrov said he had agreed with his Chinese counterpart to block any U.S. attempt to sabotage the deal.

We are against revising these agreements, we consider it very counter productive to try to reduce to zero years of international work carried out via talks between the six major powers and Iran, Reuters quoted Lavrov as saying.

This is while, the US administration has done a great deal over the past year to kill Iran nuclear deal.

Trump is expected to announce his decision regarding suspending sanctions against Iran and continuing the implementation of the JCPOA on May 12.
