Russia\'s Permanent Representative to the International Organizations in Vienna and the International Atomic Energy Agency Mikhail Ulyanov

Russia's Permanent Representative to International Organizations based in Vienna said that the United States had violated the UN Charter by withdrawing from Iran's Nuclear Agreement 2015 and by failing to implement UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

Iran Press/Europe: Mikhail Ulyanov wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the United States does not implement UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed Iran's nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and also prevents others from implementing it.


The US President Donald Trump on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, unilaterally declared his country's withdrawal from the JCPOA and the return of nuclear sanctions against Iran in violation of Washington's commitments under the agreement.

Trump's action has received widespread domestic and international condemnation.
