Nu­clear Deal Joint Com­mis­sion Meet­ing at UN Likely

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

NEW YORK (IRNA) - The meet­ing of Iran’s nu­clear deal Joint Com­mis­sion on the side­lines of the United Na­tions Gen­eral As­sem­bly is likely, but not fixed yet, Ira­nian am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions said on Fri­day.

The 72nd UN Gen­eral As­sem­bly will be held Sep 19-25 with the world heads of states, in­clud­ing Iran’s Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani and its For­eign Min­is­ter Mo­ham­mad Javad Zarif, at­tend­ing the meet­ing.

An­swer­ing a ques­tion on the prob­a­bil­ity of hold­ing the Joint Com­mis­sion of the nu­clear deal on the side­lines of the United Na­tions Gen­eral As­sem­bly, Iran’s Am­bas­sador to the UN Gho­la­mali Khoshroo told Ira­nian re­porters that the Com­mis­sion has al­ways been held dur­ing vis­its of the For­eign Min­is­ter Mo­ham­mad Javad Zarif to the Gen­eral As­sem­bly since for­eign min­is­ters of other sig­na­to­ries to the land­mark nu­clear deal are also present at the UN meet­ing.

For this year, High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Euro­pean Union Fed­er­ica Mogherini has sug­gested to hold the JCPOA Joint Com­mis­sion meet­ing on the side­lines of the UN Gen­eral As­sem­bly, but it has not been fixed yet, Khoshroo said.

The deal’s Joint Com­mis­sion is in charge of over­see­ing its im­ple­men­ta­tion. The 8th meet­ing of the JCPOA Com­mis­sion was held in Vi­enna on July 21, 2017.

Ac­cord­ing to Khoshroo, the JCPOA meet­ing at a lower level would cer­tainly be held on the side­lines of the UN As­sem­bly meet­ing.

Pres­i­dent Rouhani is to ad­dress the As­sem­bly on Iran’s ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion in the in­ter­na­tional arena, and Ira­nian peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions from the United Na­tions, Khoshroo added.
