Russian FM: Iran Nuclear Deal Couldn't Survive US Pullout

Kim Jong Un

Having recently agreed to keep complying with the deal, President Trump said that the U.S. will withdraw within four months if the rest of the world doesn't agree to impose radical changes to the terms of the deal, including keeping restrictions on Iran's civilian nuclear program in place permanently.

The Security Council meeting today on the theme of non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction: confidence-building measures was convened by Kazakhstan in its capacity as the President of the Security Council for the month of January.

Nazarbayev says the issue of North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons "can be resolved by restoring trust among the United States, Russia and China".

President Donald Trump and his administration worry that the USA military is feeling the effects of years of budget shortfalls and atrophy, and needs a full reboot.

The foreign minister again made the argument that killing off the Iran nuclear deal would also compromise any bid to persuade North Korea to scrap its nuclear arsenal. She said it supports "terrorists, proxy militants and murderers like Bashar Assad", the Syrian president.

"What helps us to China, Russia eliminates".

If the Iranian nuclear deal is not upheld, "how can we ask North Korea to use the same option" and abandon its nuclear ambitions, asked Lavrov.

As for Iran, Haley said "the regime in Tehran is the leading cause of instability in an unstable part of the world".

"It also provokes profound disagreements among members of the worldwide community".

And she accused Russian Federation of vetoing three council resolutions and preventing the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons from holding Assad's government accountable for the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Guterres said "global anxieties about nuclear weapons are the highest since the Cold War", and warned of "unimaginable consequences" from "the growing risk of military confrontation". "It would not be acceptable for Iran and it is clear now, I believe, that the Europeans do understand this danger right now", Lavrov said.

Turning to the Syrian conflict where the use of chemical weapons has challenged the "global taboo" against these weapons of mass destruction, Mr. Guterres said that if the use of chemical weapons in the country is once again determined, the worldwide community "needs to find an appropriate way to identify those responsible and hold them to account".
