Iran’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations said that the country should not be the sole party implementing the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran press/America: Speaking on Thursday in a plenary session of UN 1st committee, Iran’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Es'hagh Al Habib lashed out at the measures taken by US in violation of international treaties and added: “The US violates international treaties on disarmament and arms control and consequently, it [United States] undermines and weakens international institutions."

With its destructive measures, the United States has jeopardized global peace with the continuation of modernizing its weapons and increasing weapons stockpiles and arsenals, Al Habib added, Iran Press reported

He went on to say that the Islamic Republic of Iran is the major victim of systematic attacks of chemical weapons in contemporary history.

The US pullout from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is a solid evidence that not only Washington has failed to live up to its commitments, but also it threatens other countries to do so," Al Habib added.

He further censured the US' economic terrorism against Iran, saying: “the US is after exerting maximum pressure on Iran and it should be stated that Iran cannot and should not be only party implementing its JCPOA commitments.”
