Iranian Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN Majid Takht Ravanchi

Iran's Ambassador to the United Nations has said that the US deceives the world by media tricks and claims that Iran's Nuclear Deal 2015 known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has no legal standing at UN.

Iran Press/America: In a tweet on Wednesday, Majid Takht Ravanchi said:

Diplomatic efforts to reach a comprehensive, long-term and proper solution to the Iranian nuclear issue culminated in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) concluded on 14 July 2015 by China, France, Germany, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, the United States, the High Representative of the European Union (the E3/EU+3) and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew his country from the international agreement on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, in violation of Washington's commitments under the JCPOA, and announced the return of nuclear sanctions.
