JCPOA parties need to show flexibility to revive nuclear deal: United Nations

The spokesman of Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres says an agreement on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal requires “flexibility” from the parties, saying Guterres continues to support the agreement clinched between Iran and the world’s powers.

Stéphane Dujarric made the remarks while addressing a press briefing on Monday amid protracted talks to restore the multilateral deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“For him, I think what’s important is that all of the parties to the JCPOA demonstrate some flexibility, which is going to be required if you’re going to reach a compromise on the last remaining issues and return to the full implementation of the plan and [UN] resolution 2231 (2015) without any further delay,” he said.

“Everybody has a different role to play,” Dujarric said, explaining that the UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is involved in an aspect of the nuclear discussions and that IAEA Director-General Rafael Grossi is “deeply involved on behalf, shall we say, of the United Nations’ system.”
