Iran's representative in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly considered Iran's missile program in accordance with international law and addressed the Europeans saying that JCPOA is not a unilateral commitment for Iran.


Iran Press/America: Heydar Ali Balouji raised this issue at the meeting of the First Committee of the UN General Assembly in response to some allegations made by Britain and France about Iran's missile program.

The diplomat of the Islamic Republic of Iran added: " Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a unilateral commitment that has been accepted only by Iran, but also defines individual commitments to its other participants, including three European countries (France, Britain and Germany)."

"Instead of putting pressure on Iran, the European parties should fulfill their obligations and also prevent the violation of JCPOA, UN Security Council Resolution 2231 and the imposition of maximum illegal sanctions against Iran," he reiterated.

He also denied the claims of the Zionist representative to the United Nations, saying: "Israel regime is an entity that continues to commit structural discrimination in the occupied territories."

Iran's representative to the UN General Assembly Disarmament Committee added: "In the case of human rights, in just one year at the UN Human Rights Council, Israel has received 70 percent of the Council's 50 convictions,  It accounts for 60 percent of the 10 special sessions of the council and 100 percent of the five investigative missions of the human rights council."

"The Zionist regime has the capability of operating nuclear weapons by mass-producing nuclear warheads," Balouji said.

He added: "Israel must be honest about non-proliferation treaty or non-compliance with international law, and refrain from lying and accusing other countries."

Iran's representative in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly stated: "The international community must force the Israeli regime to put aside any excuses over joining the negotiations of making the Middle East free of all weapons of mass destruction under the auspices of the United Nations.
