UN removes Iran from provisions of Chapter 7

​TEHRAN, Jul. 20 (MNA) – Iran’s senior nuclear negotiator has said the UN resolution recognizes Iran’s nuclear program as ‘no threat.’

Seyed Abbas Araghchi was speaking to Iran’s IRIB Channel 1 midday news program just ahead of the endorsement by the UN Security Council of JCPOA in New York. “The UN’s today resolution which is to be voted in New York, consists of 12 introductory articles, 30 executive articles, a background which encapsulates JPA or Vienna Agreement, and a letter by the 5+1 including 7 sections, and will total to 170 pages,” Araghchi told the IRIB; “the UN Security Council’s resolution will remove Iran’s nuclear program from current status of threat to a ‘no threat’ status; a second feature of the resolution is that it defines a roadmap to make possible removal of all sanctions, annulling previously endorsed resolutions; this will be the first and last UN resolution and since its endorsement, the UN will have no role possible in Iran’s nuclear program,” he detailed.

“A third feature of the resolution will endorse JCPOA, which effectively recognizes Iran’s enrichment program; this is unprecedented in Council’s history that an enrichment program is being endorsed; a further point of importance is that no sanctions regime will be effective, and with it sanctions committee will cease to exist; only some minor limitations will be on place which will be removed as well according to a timetable,” Araghchi told to the news bulletin.

“These limitations will hit goods with dual use in military and nuclear industries, weapons, and a ban on missile activity; in the past, selling of dual use goods and facilities to Iran had been totally banned; however, now a five-year limitation will place the former regime, and purchase of these items by Iran will require a permission by the UN Security Council,” Araghchi said. “With missile program, Resolution 1929 totally banned any activity whatsoever; now, the new resolution only requires Iran to avoid nuclear warhead missile technology development, for which we have no future plan,” he added.

“This however does not fall under the provisions of Article 41 and Chapter 7 of the Charter, and it is a requirement, which would not be binding as well; with all restrictions, the present resolution sets clear lines between deal and resolution; it will not affect any of our regional and defense policies,” Araghchi told the program.
