The UN-Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon emphasised how important the Iran-nuclear deal is. In July 2015 the P5+1 – the US, the UK, France, Russia, China and Germany – and the Iran agreed on the so called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). So far, the agreement has been successful.

Due to Donald Trump’s negative statements and constant criticism for the Iran deal during his election campaign, many see the agreement endangered. Now, the UN-Secretary-General  made a statement and underlined that this ‚robust‘ agreement had to be maintained as the consequences of dissolution would be unpredictable.
