Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin criticized United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s report on the implementation of Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers. According to the Russian diplomat, the document contains factual mistakes and looks politically motivated.
"Let us be straight: the United Nations secretary general’s report to the Security Council is not fitting the necessary business rhythm. The document is politically motivated and goes far beyond the frames of factual summary of the course of the implementation of Security Council Resolution 2231. Moreover, it contains a lot of irrelevant information," Churkin stressed.
The Russian diplomat added that in its current wording, the report is unlikely to promote sustainable implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and "can potentially work towards undermining the agreements reached."
