Russia Refuses To Banish Nuclear Weapons and Comply with United Nations Treaty

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov rejected US suggestions that China and Russia were undermining international efforts to strengthen global securityMore

"This agreement can not be implemented if one of the participants unilaterally steps out of it, " Lavrov warned, adding that he expects the Trump Administration to "try to convince the European states to take the same position".

Trump last week agreed to again waive USA nuclear-related sanctions on Iran, but demanded that United States lawmakers and European allies fix the "disastrous flaws" in the deal or face a U.S. exit. The historic accord-led by the United States and five permanent members of the Security Council, plus Germany (known as P5+1)-has been a source of contention for the Trump administration. "It will fall apart, there will be no deal then".

He also highlighted the relationship between the United States and Russian Federation, regarding trust on nuclear issues that "continues to ebb".

North Korea, the self-proclaimed nuclear power, launched its highest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in late November, setting aflame new tensions. In addition, how can we suggest to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) an option similar to the Iran agreement if it finally fails, he questioned.

The remarks came in response to US President Donald Trump, who has been trying to undermine the deal by threatening to pull his country out of it unless it is "fixed". However, he said it would be the last time he will do so and ordered European allies and Congress to work with him to fix "the disastrous flaws" in the 2015 deal or Washington would withdraw.

Ending the "sunset provisions" has been a key demand by Trump-restrictions on Tehran's enrichment program that would have started in 2025.

Last Friday, Trump kept the Iran agreement alive by extending sanctions waivers.

The UN chief underscored the importance effective verification mechanisms "from the ground-breaking verification protocols of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, to the invaluable work undertaken by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, verification builds confidence".
