Iran's permanent representative to the United Nations stressed the need for the Europeans to prove the effectiveness of Instex emphasizing that Iran should enjoy the economic benefits of JCPOA.

Iran Press/America: In a letter to Antonio Guterres and Jerry Matjila, South Africa's representative to the United Nations and chairman of the Security Council, Majid Takht-Ravanchii described Iran's assessment of the 10th report of the UN Secretary-General on Resolution 2231.

According to the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which was adopted following the Iran nuclear deal, every six months,  the Secretary-General of the United Nations is required to report to the Security Council on the implementation of the resolution.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday.

Iran's permanent representative to the United Nations, stating that Washington is the violator of the nuclear deal, called the reduction of Iran's nuclear obligations a coercive result of the violation of the agreement by other parties and it is in accordance with Iran's rights in Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Referring to the promise of European countries to ensure the continuation of the economic relations envisaged in JCPOA with Iran and the establishment of the Instex system, Takht-Ravanchi stressed that this system must prove its efficiency after 2 years.

He also referred to the assassination of Martyr Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and said: "The way the issue is raised in this report is by no means sufficient," adding that this assassination, along with the last year's assassination of Major General Ghasem Soleimani, are clearly terrorist crimes that must be condemned strongly and explicitly.

The Late Commander of Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, who had traveled to Iraq on the official invitation of the Iraqi officials, was assassinated in the US air-raid in Baghdad on January 3, 2020, along with the second-in-command of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and 8 companions by the direct order of the US President Donald Trump.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the Research and Innovation Organization of the Ministry of Defence of Iran was martyred in a terrorist attack on the outskirts of Tehran on November 27. 219
