The Vienna Chapter of the Non-Aligned Movement wishes to thank the Director General, Mr. Yukiya Amano, for his report on the Final Assessment on Past and Present Outstanding Issues regarding Iran’s Nuclear Programme, as contained in document GOV/2015/68.
NAM reiterates its principled position that diplomacy and dialogue are the only way for a long term solution of Iran’s nuclear issue. NAM encourages all Member States to contribute positively to that effect.
NAM welcomes the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreed between the Islamic Republic of Iran and EU3+3 in Vienna on 14 July 2015 (INFCIRC/887) and believes that it would contribute to a peaceful solution to Iran’s nuclear issue.
NAM notes that the Agency has an essential role to play in Verification and Monitoring in the Islamic Republic of Iran in relation to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and therefore supports the Agency’s role in this regard.
NAM looks forward to the report of the Director General, as appropriate,on the implementation of nuclear-related measures of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, to the Board of Governors.
NAM welcomes that the Security Council resolution 2231 (2015), adopted in July 2015, includes terms providing for the termination of the provisions of the relevant Security Council resolutions. NAM expects the Board of Governors to consider parallel action in regard to its relevant resolutions accordingly.
NAM notes the importance of all relevant participants faithfully honouring their relevant undertakings and respective commitments under the JCPOA.
NAM notes that all the activities in the Road-map for clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear programme were implemented in accordance with the agreed schedule and further notes that this closes the Board’s consideration of this item.
Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
