UN chief says Iran nuclear deal must be preserved
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres believes the Iran nuclear deal must be preserved but that this achievement can be strengthened, his spokesman said Wednesday, Expatica France reported.
French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday opened the door to a new deal with Iran that would build on the nuclear agreement, following talks at the White House with President Donald Trump.
Guterres believes that the Iran nuclear deal is "very important and it should be maintained," said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric.
But he added: "We must build on this important achievement to preserve the non-proliferation regime which is a cornerstone of our global security."
