UN Security Council endorses Iran nuclear deal
Text size Aa Aa

The United Nations Security Council has endorsed the Iran nuclear deal, although the country’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps commander has deemed the agreement “unacceptable.”

Some parts of the draft have clearly crossed the Islamic republic's red lines, especially in Iran's military capabilities.

Iran’s semi-official Tasnim News Agency quoted Commander Mohammed Ali Jafari:

“Some parts of the draft have clearly crossed the Islamic republic’s red lines, especially in Iran’s military capabilities,” he reportedly said ahead of the resolution being passed in New York.

The fifteen-member body unanimously agreed to adopt the resolution, which will curb Iran’s nuclear programme for the long term in return for the lifting of sanctions.

As the deal was agreed, the Security Council warned sanctions can be reimposed if Tehran breaches the agreement within the next decade.
