Tehran (ISNA) - The United Nations continues to encourage support for all governments for the Iran nuclear deal, a UN spokesperson has said, after Washington vowed to re-impose sanctions on Iran lifted under the deal.

Farhan Haq, a UN spokesperson, said that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres continues to view the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the Iran nuclear deal) as a diplomatic achievement and continues to encourage support for all governments for that, just as he did when these sanctions were being contemplated, Xinhua reported.

Despite global outcry, Washington said in May it would re-impose tough sanctions on Tehran when it declared to leave the 2015 multilateral deal. It also laid out two wind-down periods of 90 days and 180 days for business activities in or involving Iran.

In response to concerns of possible humanitarian impact of the sanctions, Haq said “we will have to see what effects of these measures are,” while stressing “regardless of the steps that are being taken,” it is important that “Iran and the other parties comply with the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action.”

He added the deal is the best way of resolving this particular situation, “So we would encourage all countries to do what they can to support the agreement.”
