NEW YORK, DECEMBER 19 – Calling for a show on cohesion by the international community, Italy stressed the importance that every effort should be made by relevant parties, and the international community as a whole, to ensure that the JCPoA continue to represent “a success story” in the global effort to uphold the integrity of the non-proliferation regime.
“It is crucial for us that the Security Council displays unity on such central topic and the accurate and thorough report of the SG provides a good basis to work towards this important objective”, the Italian Permanent Representative to the Un Sebastiano Cardi said during a meeting of the Security Council in which he also delivered the last briefing of his mandate as Facilitator of Resolution 2231.
“We strongly appreciate the references in the SG report to the JCPoA, as a ‘major achievement in nuclear non–proliferation and diplomacy in addressing issues that could impact on regional and international peace and security”’ We are convinced that all participants, including the Iranian people, should continue to benefit from it. We definitely very much share the Secretary General’s call on ‘all participants to remain steadfast in their commitment to the full implementation of the agreement’, Cardi said. He also reiterated Italy’s full trust in and support to the IAEA in discharging its verification task related to the JCPoA, and commended the High Representative of the European Union Federica Mogherini, for her leadership in coordinating the Joint Commission established by the JCPoA.
