United Nations chief says don't harm Iran nuclear deal over unrelated issues

The UN chief also highlighted the importance of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear programme and said that multilateral agreement, which is in the interest of the Iranian people and the worldwide community at large, should be preserved.

Trump also views Iran as a rising threat in the Middle East and the United States has accused Tehran of violating UN resolutions by supplying weapons to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

"If the deal is put aside and Iran is told, "you keep up with your obligations or we will impose sanctions again", then you have to put North Korea in its place", Lavrov said. However the United Nations has said the Iranian-made weapons could have been supplied by a third party.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned on Wednesday that any issues not directly related to the Iran nuclear deal "should be addressed without prejudice to preserving the agreement", according to Reuters.

The report, submitted to the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, includes four sections, namely obstacles and challenges of implementing the JCPOA, diplomatic measures to pursue Iran's demands, latest status of sanctions relief, and most recent developments in the nuclear industry, he added.

Iran has denied that it has missiles created to carry nuclear warheads.

Lavrov highlighted everything that was achieved with the agreement on Iran's nuke program (Jcpoa) ​​and urged other countries to join this joint action plan.

Trump on Friday said he made a decision to extend sanctions waivers on Iran for the last time, threatening to withdraw from the pact unless US Congress and European allies can fix the alleged "disastrous flaws".
