Iran writes official protest letter to UN chief on US ISA violation

IRNA- Iran’s Permanent Representative to the UN Gholamali Khoshrou in a letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon voiced Iran’s official protest to the recent extension of Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) by the US Congress and Senate.

‘The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran considers the recent US Congress approval on renewal of anti-Iran sanctions as blatant contradiction to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and violation of the US commitments under the nuclear agreement,’ Khoshrou said in his letter to Ban.

He reiterated that the extension of ISA is against all JCPOA commitments of the US and therefore this country will be responsible for all its negative consequences.

Khoshrou urged the UN secretary General to mention the US violations in his upcoming report to the UN Security Council.

The Iranian envoy asked the UN Secretary General to ask all sides to the JCPOA, especially the US to remain committed to their pledges as per the nuclear agreement.
